Well, this sums me up surprisingly well. Maybe I should do some reading about this Kierkegaard fella...

Your Score: Søren Kierkegaard

You scored 27 realism, 50 rationalism, 27 materialism, and 55 atomism!

Your philosopher is Søren Aabye Kierkegaard (May 5, 1813 - November 11, 1855), a 19th century Danish philosopher who is generally recognized as the first existentialist philosopher. Much of his work deals with religious problems such as the nature of faith, the institution of the Christian church, and Christian ethics and theology. Kierkegaard is best known for the concept of the 'leap of faith'.

You value true individuality. Becoming aware of your true self is your true task and endeavor in life. It is an ethical imperative, necessary to achieve true spirituality. To you, people who live simply in terms of their pleasures - their immediate satisfaction of desires, propensities, or distractions - simply glide through life without direction or purpose. To have a direction, we must have a purpose that defines for us the meaning of our lives.
