What does your philosophical outlook look like?

Mine is all over the map:

I'm most surprised by the sensuality one since I consider myself a very hedonistic, libertine kind of person. I think if they phrased the questions differently or asked them about different areas of life it would look quite different.

I'm not sure if I've taken this one before or if the questions from these kinds of tests are all blurring together.

Some of the results were what I expected, others not so much.

Spoiler

I expected materialism to be a lot higher, because I do believe that the world is made up of only indivisible physical things and void.

The next axis underestimates my egoism a bit, but it's not as off-mark as my Materialism value.
Spook memes are fun and all, but no man's an island and I can not be happy while those around me need help. Besides, even Stirner himself was not really against altruistic deeds, just against putting altruism above oneself.

Next: Hedonism-Asceticism.
Strictly speaking, I am a hedonist, but I'm not interested in fame, power, or the kinds of pleasure popularly associated with that word. I value comfort and peace of mind in the long run a lot more. Still, I'm not willing to fully embrace the epicurean line of thought of getting used to lower levels of pleasure in order to avoid the pain that might follow if I lose those pleasures. If I can't collect fan art of 2Dqts and indulge in luxuries every now and then, why even live?

The Rationalism-Romanticism axis is somewhat accurate. I think that to understand the world better and achieve my goals, I should try to be as rational as possible. Unfortunately, the world does not care about humans, so we must turn to art, to beautiful untrue things. I don't think that either one of the two values is superior, they are both crucial in different ways. One attempts to explain the world, the other makes it worth living in.

That's more or less my worldview: a weird blend of Aestheticism and Epicureanism.

Lol thank you Backlash, I forgot the most important part of the whole post!!!

Very interesting results. It seems like I'm closest to moeki, hers being a slightly more sharply defined version of the kind of non-egoistic non-absolutism that I verge towards.

I honestly expected myself to verge towards the middle more in most of these areas. I find myself seeing all sides of everything constantly on a grand scale and trouble saying yes or no since everything depends on the circumstances. I guess that's why I love these tests, they draw out of me what's most important.

I like this test because I feel like the results are more varied than most similar ones I've seen threads on here. It's interesting how much we vary on some of these despite seeming so similar in personalities.

When I see these types of tests I can't help but wonder if the results are accurate enough. I absolutely do not trust myself to be able to pick the right answer.
I don't like the vagueness of the answers. How much is strongly agree? How often is often?
The questions aren't any better being also pretty vague and wide in scope that leaves a lot of room for different interpretations and I feel like can't really be answered by picking a point on a scale.
Example: Our society defines us - What does that even mean? It kinda does and does not.
Sometimes, the author simplify a topic too much and ask something pretty funny that gives me more reasons to not take online personality tests seriously.
Example: There exists an omniscient, omnipotent and absolute being. - depending on what they acctually mean by omnipotent.
Sometimes, they ask two thing  that aren't neccessarily related to each other in one question. If I agree with one and disagree with the other do I choose neutral.
Example: Life is suffering and ultimately meaningless - as if life being meaningless has anything to do with suffering
I believe I don't have the knowledge to answer a lot of the other ones so I just picked neutral/I don't know
Consequently, the answers I gave feel unsatisfactory and my result feels wrong.
Other than that, it was fun and the website looks nice. I like doing these if I get to post my result and especially if they tell me what I already want to hear. *cackles*

Last line: Objectivism/Hobbesian

Not relevant to this thread
Nothing can be proven to be true. - Question 49
Personally, I strongly agree with this
Recently I watched Re:Creators per my friend's recommendation. I hate the character whose ability has to do with lying so much because they kept talking about truth being made up. They kinda argue in the style of "You can't come up with an answer to my questions right away therefore I'm right". I guess that's the point of the character. I just wish the protagonist had more backbone.

Let's start with something simple like "The moon is a sphere", obviously, that statement is true.
Next, what about "BJmEFBKZexCReAeHGzwf"? Some people may say it's meaningless or undefined.
But from these examples we start to see that truth can't be seperated from our language and generally, us.

"The moon is a sphere." also has some other problems
It could be a hologram. The atmosphere could actually be a giant dome. The sky is fake. The government made the holograms of all of the planets and stars appear spherical so as to distract us sheeples from realizing that the earth is flat.
Or mjaybe we're inside of a simulation like in the matrix. In the real reality, there is no moon.
We can't trascend our perception, out of our world and perceive the world "the way it is" so we can never say for sure if anything is true or not.
I believe that there is no physical quantity of truth exists some where in the universe waiting for us to discover. (Unless you're like smiles :^) )
That we only care about truth because it is useful (sometimes because it's beautiful or that it exists but mostly useful)
This is my bias world view as someone who study science but I want to convince you that this might be worth considering. Some philosopher somewhere is probably groaning haha.
Imagine there being a universe just like ours but if people believe in false information or if they don't know if something is true or false, they:
  • become rich
  • feel happy
  • advance the world's technological progress
  • can make energy and material come to existence out of thin air
  • can time travel
  • become god
otherwise, 6 velociraptors attack them from all side once every day.
Why would someone care about something being true or false?

I like to think of it like math.
We declare a bunch of axiom (which are just statements that are accepted to be true) and do some useful things with them.
If I want to declare "Everything that exists in anime is real" and "Waifu exists in anime" as axioms then saying "Waifu is real" is true (I wish the world works like this tbh lol)
But that doesn't mean that they are real real.
Much like A x B = B x A is only true until we learn about matrices.

I am in no way a philosopher and I've made a lot of bold claims today. If possible, I want someone to correct me if I got something wrong.
I spent way too much time on this. I'll go to sleep now. Good night!
