This test has just given me some wholly unsurprising but nonetheless disturbing insights into one or two HIGHLY prominent figures in today's society...

I try not to take any online testing as they are all most definitely someone's datamine.
Now a test on paper is just fine, I control who sees how inept I am.
Who is looking at the data you put out there?
This goes for forums too, such as ATS!

Thanks for the test.

Low Machs here too. I am just too good and avoid manipulation.

And that's fine by me. Interesting questions though.

I find it interesting because I look at a question and experience two different processes: am I looking to use, or am I looking to share?

And I come up with different answers depending on how I'm looking at it. If I'm interesting in using people, I give very different answers than if I'm interesting in sharing with people. I guess it could be compared like a business approach versus a fellowship approach. One is strictly for profit, the other is for emotional networking. One is all about draining and discarding the people I come across, and the other is about using the people I come across to make life better for us both. One makes me a monster, the other makes me a hero.

And that leads me to a very deep conclusion: if I become the monster, I will either kill the hero or die to the hero. And if I become the hero, I will either kill the monster or die to the monster. Otherwise, the hero will become the monster, and the monster will become the hero. What this proves, in my mind, is that both are equally necessary in the social dynamic, in the same way death and life are necessary in the biological dynamic.

I don't know if this makes sense to any of you, but it's some seriously profound stuff to me. This is the song of light and shadow, poetry written by battleworn kings in the midnight candlelight. This is what entertains me, the idea that the question is the problem and the solution all at the same time.

I'm feeling musical today, so my posts are a little more imaginative than usual.

Thanks for the test.

Interesting questions though.


I watched a little bit about the prince on t.v couple of days ago Made me wont research about it.

This goes for forums too, such as ATS!


and how many people put in falsified data just for shiggles or to attempt to profile someone they know or a public figure?

I can't speak as much for ats but there are a lot of people here who don't exactly speak the truth either, in many ways. Sarcasm or dry humor being a few examples. Bots, moles, trolls, shills... crazy people lol... it's not exactly an accurate database. But I suppose you could increase that rate of accuracy if you could weed out some of the posters...but it's a tricky endeavor if you ask me.

From the website


Your score was 69 of 100. This puts you in the category of the high Machs, people who do not belive in the goodness of the world and that because that it must be manipulated, people who Machiavelli would approve of.

And you are correct!
Well sort of anyway.
A small percentage of people just want to watch the world burn, but the greatest portion want to ask the age old question and really know, "who am I"?
These people answer truthfully just so they can get a number and figure out just which category they fit into.
I don't worry about such things, I have a small group of friends that just adore my wife and I, this tells me we are real folks.
And even beyond that, I have my wife and my dogs that think the world of me.
Who could ask for anything more?
Now I quote not a hero or an epic poet but a simple mainstream songwriter that put all of the words together perfectly once, 'It's not having what you want, it's wanting what you've got".
