Well, now that we all have been diagnosed by multiple online pop psychology tests as having serious disorders, how about this one: http://test.thespark.com/puritytest/

I got 43%.

Erm... 23%

I'm not sure whether I should be bragging or hanging my head in shame. Out of 9,835,178 submissions before mine, only 3% actually scored lower :-/

57%, which is odd because I rank quite a bit higher on the 400-question test.

I question the relevance of some of the questions, which I don't recall seeing before.  What does religion have to do with purity?

(I wonder if they just generated bogus answers for me after I gave my name as Yougotta B. Kidding and my e-mail address as [email protected]?)

34% And probably not falling, thank "Bob." Very scary that 94% of respondents are purer than I.

This test is not as good as the real purity tests. I think from the statistics at the end that it also may not be all that representative of actual statistics. I certainly don't think that 7 out of 10 people are purer than I am. I am one of the tamest people I know. It is hard to answer some questions as yes or no too. I could probably go ten points either direction depending upon interpretation.

I only made 63% on the first try, but I'll study hard and try to accomplish more on the list and see if I can go further.

Any geek ladies out there wanna help with some research?

79%. I think I need to find someone to help me lower that. The picture is of a fireman fending off a woman with an axe and saying "Back off lady, I know how to use this!"

46%

which is actually lower than the *first* time I took this sucker 2 years ago, which surprises me a bit.

But I've done about everything on that list that I'm willing to do, at this point...might get it down to 40 but I can't see it going lower.

Almost needless to say, I got a relatively high score. Not 100% but still up there.

After going through the test, the people with 30-40% scores disturb me just a little. They may not have answered 'yes' to *all* the really icky ones, certainly more than a few to get that low.
