What kind of world view do I have?

I do occasionally like a good quiz. I found this one today. It is mildly silly because a 32 question quiz can't possibly decipher my world view, but it didn't do a terrible job.

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.

This quiz pegged me perfectly. I am a cultural creative as they define it. I do believe in the divine, but I also believe in the ability for humanity to charter its own course through collective responsibility. I don’t mean communism. I mean community. One person reaching out, whenever possible to help his fellow man, even in small ways is the type of responsibility I am talking about. The problem is being conscious of the opportunities when they present themselves. I recently had an opportunity to reach out to someone and failed. It has really bugged me ever since. I was driving to the airport to pick my brother up. I stopped to fill my gas tank before jumping on the highway. As I was waiting in line I noticed a man standing near the register, having an animated conversation with what could only have been a belligerent credit card company. There was some sort of problem with the account, he needed to pay for his gas and he was having a problem. I doubt this was a poor person, based on his clothing and general stature, but he was clearly a man having a rough night. I could easily have eased his burden, in the hope that he would in turn ease the burden of someone else. I chose not to. It is still not entirely clear to me why. It is kind of a Pay It Forward philosophy, but a continuous one.

Let’s make it a running theme here. I will try and find a cool custom counter to code into the blog and each time one of my readers comments with a Community Moment (or a better name if you can come up with one) we will add it to the counter. Anyone who knows about html coding and/or knows of one that exists already, please feel free to forward it along to me. You get a link in exchange and a G-mail account if you want one.

How did you score on the quiz?

We are living in a material world, and I am a material, uh, boy.


You scored as Materialist. Materialism stresses the essence of fundamental particles. Everything that exists is purely physical matter and there is no special force that holds life together. You believe that anything can be explained by breaking it up into its pieces. i.e. the big picture can be understood by its smaller elements.
