What is your world view?

What is Your World View? | Quizfarm.com

You Scored as Existentialist
Existentialism emphasizes human capability. There is no greater power interfering with life and thus it is up to us to make things happen. Sometimes considered a negative and depressing world view, your optimism towards human accomplishment is immense. Mankind is condemned to be free and must accept the responsibility.

You Scored as Cultural Creative

Cultural Creatives are probably the newest group to enter this realm. You are a modern thinker who tends to shy away from organized religion but still feels as if there is something greater than ourselves. You are very spiritual, even if you are not religious. Life has a meaning outside of the rational.

I think I'm more of a fundamentalist than this, but. . .

You Scored as Postmodernist

Postmodernism is the belief in complete open interpretation. You see the universe as a collection of information with varying ways of putting it together. There is no absolute truth for you; even the most hardened facts are open to interpretation. Meaning relies on context and even the language you use to describe things should be subject to analysis.


Surprised me. I certainly do believe in absolute truths and hardened facts. Although as part of the BIG questions, maybe not as much. I don't believe we have absolute truth or hard facts about the nature of what it truly means to be human. Do I have strong inclinations? Sure. I myself would lean more atheist than believer but that doesn't mean I am assigning myself to one side or the other. I just go where the actual facts lead. Explain consciousness to me and then you can convince me of the absolutes. Explain the whole of the universe (the vast majority)and I'll concede that hardened fact. Until then, mine is the true skeptical position.

So, I certainly don't totally agree with that result but it's interesting to ponder...

These quizzes are always worded too rigidly in order to compartmentalize the results. I find my answers to almost all questions were somewhere in between slightly agree, slightly disagree or the middle.

I am skeptical of these tests. However it does seem as if some of us like-minded people in here are getting similar scores.
I found myself answering many of these questions with the 3 because I was indifferent to the question. I did answer a few with 2 and 4, and perhaps a couple with 1 or 5.

I have a problem with labels. Once we do that it becomes easier to dismiss or accept someone, or what they say, based on preconceptions without considering any of the merits of their arguments.

I will admit I skimmed the test but failed to complete it. Far too many of the questions did not warrant a strong response either way, from me. In so far as I either did not especially disagree or agree, or in so far as I rejected the premise of the statement.

I found myself indifferent to a lot of the questions too.
