    33%... But I don't think a test is good for such things, I mean, does the result really tell anything? We have different points of view, and that's how it works.

    Tension Quotient = 7%

    You agreed that:
    The environment should not be damaged unnecessarily in the pursuit of human ends
    But disagreed that:
    People should not journey by car if they can walk, cycle or take a train instead

    i just dont like walking :lol:

    Well, it's not judging you on your views, morals, or values. It's just judging if any of those contradict another that you hold. I thought it was a very interesting test.

    I just took the test. Most of them in which my values "contradicted" I could actually explain how I could hold both views at the same time.

    Like this one. I know people who possess drugs for personal use can harm those around them by hurting themselves.

    I got 40%, but I think that was because I didn't understand some of the questions. ^_^

    And it's impossible to be truely a 0% hypocrite. Just read The Catcher in the Rye.

    You agreed that:
    The environment should not be damaged unnecessarily in the pursuit of human ends
    But disagreed that:
    People should not journey by car if they can walk, cycle or take a train instead


    Pure selfishness here..."people" includes me and I don't want to ride a bike everywhere.


    You agreed that:
    So long as they do not harm others, individuals should be free to pursue their own ends
    But disagreed that:
    The possession of drugs for personal use should be decriminalised


    I guess I am hypocritcal here. But I know this and it's the reason I try hard to stay out of drug arguments.


    Total = 13%

    Hmph. I think there's more tension then that.

    I'll do the philosopher thing later.

    I don't know. I think it is feasible that people can hold beliefs that don't contradict one another.

    I got the same tension quotient too because of the same reason you gave. I just didn't understand some of the questions.
