I skimmed this and I don't need to take a test to tell me I am not a sheeple


I know people who should take this though because they will fail epically! lol




A sheeple smiley would be nice

I find it funny that if you stand on the outside and read a lot of the threads on ATS then all you have to do is reverse the answers and most people here are sheeple.

But of course - we are on the inside, so...

Anyway - I think that some of the questions are valid and most are gross simplifications and "leading the witness".

My mom took the test with me, and here I was thinking she was a sheeple. Boy, I was 100% wrong answered B to every question! She doesn't troll the forums because of the fear monger, that's awesome.

If I was a sheeple I wouldn't be here

Lol sorry but thats a pretty silly quiz especially for a website like this, You'd need at least 3 answers at different variations to make it even good enough for a quick laugh but these answers only offer two extreme points.

Anyone else fed up with the 'sheeple' term btw? At first it was kind of funny, but now its used all the time

Also im fed up with how people accuse you of being a 'sheeple' if you dont believe every single conspiracy thats talked about or if you dont think that everything in the universe has been specifically put there for the purpose of the reptiod led nwo to trick and indocrinate you! yawn!

The answers were too extreme. I felt like someone was standing behind me with a gun to my head about to say, "Your either with us or not!"

Yeah. It was somewhat amusing to read, but as usual, the truth is somewhere between the extremes provided.

Here's what I think.
If you answered "A" to all the questions, you're a media controlled sheeple, just the way the government like it.
If you answered "B" to all the questions, you're a "conspiracy theorist" (in the derogatory sense of the word) sheeple, and gullibly believe anything you read on ATS or elsewhere that other website tell you what to believe.

The reality is that most of the answers are either "somewhere in between" or not applicable.
I'll use the first...

#1) The purpose of the mainstream media is to:
A) Keep you informed.
B) Feed you misinformation while keeping you distracted from the real issues our world is facing.


The purpose of the MSM is actually to earn money for the company owners / shareholders. They dont care if you're "informed", they dont care if you're "distracted from the real issues". All they want is that you're watching them. For the MSM, YOU are the product that they produce and sell to the advertisers.
The real answer to the first question is "none of the above".
But you're a sheeple if you believe either A or B.

Yup, just a fun quiz for a light laugh is what I got out of it anyway.

Should I post a "Not a legal Description" disclaimer with those lacking a sense of humor?

It sounds to me as though this test is trying to say that if you don't believe in all conspiracies, then you're a sheeple. I don't buy that premise. Sorry, it sounds like another divisive strategy.

A sheeple is someone who is not only capable but willing to be defined by a list of parameters set up by someone else.

Oooooh what Friends character are you I'm doing that one next!

I would have taken the quiz, but considering that the answer to every question is based on a false dichotomy, then I won't bother to take it.

Although, I'm sure some people may like to expand and flesh out the potential answers to the questions, thereby creating a meaningful quiz with at least 4 possible answers to every question.

Oh yeah, and the term ''sheeple'' is an example of intellectual snobbery emanating from those who are fearful that they themselves are not ''intellectual''.

not to mention it's also a buzzword which is a concept invented by the "MSM" and ad firms.

Hmmmmm... Who is doing whose dirty work indeed.

Yes, that's certainly one of the ironies of those who insist on using that term.

The other irony being that they have picked up the phrase by copying someone else who originally used the term, and they use it in an attempt to elevate their own rigid, intransigent position above others that they wish to belittle !

Actually, rather than waste a double post, I might as well add some content...

What does the term ''sheeple'' actually mean ?

Obviously, I know the intended meaning: someone who unthinkingly and unquestioningly goes with the flow; a follower who, like an individual sheep immersed in the flock, is guided - as a group - by the shepherd.

But who actually defines who is the shepherd and who are the sheep ? Surely that would depend on your own personal views and opinions that create these ideas of leaders and followers....
