What kind of thinker are you quiz

Your Thinking is Abstract and Random

You are flexible, adaptable, and creative.

There's many ways that you can learn - and you're up for any of them.

You relate well to other people, and you do well working in groups.

You can help people communicate together and work with each other's strengths.

You don't work well with people who are competitive or adversarial.

You prefer to work toward a common goal... not toward conflicting goals.

I actually prefer either to work alone or collaborate with one other person than to work in a group. I am non-competitive and conflict averse, but I do value quality and will become competitive if I feel that prevailing quality does not meet my standards or if I can do it better. I take rejection by strangers well and am not reluctant to submit my writing to editors; I assume that the person who does not appreciate my work is dense or unsophisticated and just doesn't get it, or as they sometimes say in hand written notes on rejection slips, they do appreciate it but are looking for something else.

‘I Write Entirely for You’

Review of the Lowell-Bishop correspondence. Shoshana thinks I need a lesbian literary friend and confidant, but all my amorous poetry for the past 27 years I've written entirely for her.

Lyndon B. Johnson -- A Righteous Gentile? (Thanks to Daniel Burstyn)

Things You Never Knew about LBJ

In recognition of Lyndon Johnson's efforts to save European Jewry as Hitler's noose tightened around their necks in the 1930s. We invite scholars and survivors to submit historical accounts of LBJ's actions.

LBJ broke the law to save European Jews and smuggle them into Texas in the late 30s and early 40s. Because of the illegal nature of the operation LBJ was careful to cover his tracks. Historians are now trying to document his activities to support an application to have Yad V'Shem honor LBJ as a righteous gentile.

My result for The Non-dual Polymorphic Perversity Test

Your result for The Non-dual Polymorphic Perversity Test...


I'm 96% Polymorphically Perverse!

You spent the first half of your sexual career experimenting, and your skills are way beyond the commonplace. But you are just too damn smart to wholly believe that technique and debauchery alone constitute a reliable path to integration. And you're right, my friend.

Time has come to find a spiritual path with heart - nothing is gained by compartmentalizing existence.

I hesitate to make further suggestions as this will appear to be grandstanding. After all, you're nobody's fool... or are you? Beware the demon of mundane pride, dear heart. You've travelled too far to go through all these things twice, so : be aware. Watch your mind. Take it out and play with it, and don't allow distraction to steal your relaxed attention!

Instead of further obscure hints, herewith a short explanation of the Thangka, which is of Kuntuzangpo/Kuntuzangmo. They are always naked - their nakedness reminds us of non-conceptual reality-as-it-is (versus 'conventional reality' in which right and wrong, left and right, east and west arise and cannot entirely be ignored).

They manifest in union to show the uninterrupted and seamless union of Bliss and Emptiness.

Within this one life-time, in this very body, may we accomplish the path and result, and experience reality just like that!

To possess this precious human body with sense-fields intact is as rare an occurrence as for a great sea-turtle, which comes up for breath but once in an inestimably long eon, to break the surface and poke its head directly through a yoke floating upon an ocean as wide as the sea of possibility - yet this occurs! Let's not waste the opportunity, fully realizing there is no guarantee we shall ever again experience this good fortune...

My result for The Scientific Cultural Theory Test

Your result for The Scientific Cultural Theory Test...


You scored 28% individualism, 12% fatalism, 12% hierarchy, and 76% egalitarianism!

You strongly adhere to the Egalitarian culture. Egalitarianism is characterized by a passion for equality and a strong sense of solidarity with other people. Unfortunately, this is often accompanied by a tendency to see people not in your group as traitors or evil. Egalitarians believe that nature is fragile, like a ball balanced on a hill.

The Tri-Variable Personality Test

Your result for The Tri-Variable Personality Test (qualified psychologist) ... Test...

The Eccentric

You scored 55Artist, 30 Philosopher, 15 Scientist!

You live in a world of vast abstraction and color. You are hardly interested in the mechanics of real life; you are preoccupied with the substance of existence (the story and narrative, the symbolism), and the form and shape which life itself takes. You mix the mystical with the rational, like St. Thomas Aquinas, you find inroads between the sublime and the tangible ... you might have a propensity to let yourself go, though, in different ways. Everyday chores and responsibilities are not high on your list of passions; neither is any kind of "daily ritual" most likely. Your ideal work involves something that combines a medium for self expression (such as writing), with the inherent rationality and inquisitiveness of your philosophical side. You are very youthful in your demeanor.

You are a true representative of modern culture and society; with its shifts toward new systems of spirituality which combine ancient mysticism with classic reason. You are not preoccupied with wealth most likely.

Examples of Eccentrics: Timothy Leary, Stanley Kubrick, Socrates.

Quotes from "Eccentrics": "I am a little unusual, a little different and very unique."
