I actually thought I would have done worse than this...I thought I was quite the gullible person!

"Your GF score is 88.

(Out of a range of 0 - 100, where 0 = mind slave, and 100 = free thinker.)

Mind slave Free thinker

0 (You) 100

Free Thinker

Welcome to the top 5%. You're a true free thinker and a person who is well informed about the reality in which you live. Although you may have been easily manipulated earlier in life, you eventually gained lucidity and developed a healthy sense of skepticism that you now automatically apply to your observations and experiences. You are endlessly curious about human behavior and the nature of the universe, and you have one or more lifestyle habits that most people would consider odd or unusual. You are not only of very high intelligence, you are also extremely creative in one or more areas (music, art, software development, inventing, etc.)

If you were in The Matrix, you would have taken the red pill, completed the combat training, and started fighting (and beating) agents from day one.

Your architects: You have cast off reality distortions taught to you by your parents, schooling, corporate advertising and government propaganda. You create your own beliefs based on what serves you best, without much regard for what the rest of the crowd is doing. You are guided by your own internal code of ethics (which may or may not agree with politically-correct ethical codes) rather than any pre-set system of ethics (such as from any one religion). "

Anyone who believes everything in this quiz, especially the score, is pretty gullible. While I agree with the questions and answers for most of them, and I even learned a thing or two, there are a couple that are questionable and not necessarily 100% true. And where does this "top 5%" rating that everyone seems to get come from?

More importantly, what's the purpose of putting this quiz on the internet? The guy who wrote it clearly has an agenda, like selling that book advertised at the bottom of the page. I'm not saying it's complete BS, but I'm not gullible enough to believe in the honesty of that web site. Ironic, ain't it?

yup yup - - I think it's all pretty transparent. These are not really questions, so much as facts..... like "IF YOU KNEW WATER WOULD KILL YOU, WOULD YOU DRINK IT?" What kind of a question is that?

Yeah, everything about the quizz, from the wording of the questions to the links provided with the answers, is clearly biased towards an agenda.

No problem. It happens to be an agenda I agree with.


I do think some of his informations is a bit sensational, but I always have a grain of salt handy...
