My Sciblings are trying to figure out what philosophy they follow, so, of course, I had to take the test too. I find the result somewhat surprising since I have not read Mills or Bentham and do not know that much about Utilitarianism. Although I am pleased to note that my score was tied, 75% each for Utilitarianism and Existentialism, which makes me wonder if I agree with myself philosophically speaking. Does this mean I have to engage in long winded philosophical debates with myself, or do the two philosophies get along with each other? I’m so confused. On the positive side, at least I know how Hamlet felt…
| You scored as Utilitarianism. Your life is guided by the principles of Utilitarianism: You seek the greatest good for the greatest number.
“The said truth is that it is the greatest happiness of the greatest number that is the measure of right and wrong.”
“Whenever the general disposition of the people is such, that each individual regards those only of his interests which are selfish, and does not dwell on, or concern himself for, his share of the general interest, in such a state of things, good government is impossible.”
