Quiz: Are you a 'freak' (i.e. non-conformist)?
http://www.outofservice.com/freak /

Me: Overall 66%

Need to be unique: 73% You feel that you need to be a VERY unique and different.

Need to NOT conform: 55% You prefer to conform to others' standards, but don't mind acting differently occasionally.

Willingness to express dissent: 67% You are typically respectful when you disagree, but are willing to speak your mind if it is appropriate.

(a bit of a paradox there I think- 'tis I)

5. Hmm.... 89%. It would appear that I'm a freak.
I'm shocked! Shocked, I tell you, SHOCKED!!! :evilgrin:

Need to be unique: 86%
Need to NOT conform: 97%
Willingness to express dissent: 82%
Overall score: 89%

How do I read my score?
Your scores are percentile between 1 and 100. The higher the number, the more your personality agrees with the associated comment. Your percentile indiciates how you compare against others who have taken this test. Since you have an overall score of 89, this indicates that you have a higher need-for-uniqueness than 88 out of 100 people.

7. 59%. I guess I'm pretty buttoned-down.
Need to be unique: 49%
Need to NOT conform: 77%
Willingness to express dissent: 50%

I think it's because I'm reluctant to express my opinions around people who might potentially disagree with me.

Your scores are percentile between 1 and 100. The higher the number, the more your personality agrees with the associated comment. Your percentile indiciates how you compare against others who have taken this test. Since you have an overall score of 77, this indicates that you have a higher need-for-uniqueness than 76 out of 100 people.

Your results are split into these three catagories:

Need to be unique: You feel that you need to be a VERY unique and different.
Need to NOT conform: You like to be different than others around you.
Willingness to express dissent: You speak your mind freely, without giving thought to how others will react.

13. I think DUers are likely mostly all freaks
Since we think freely and independantly. It's a fairly typical attitude of an educated, world-savvy, non-fear-of-the-unkown-driven people.

interestingly, I bet if freeps took this test, they'd also mostly score high in the freak zone, but they'd be lying on their answers saying "I always go against the grain", since they assume "the grain" is whatever Hitlery Klintoon's newest book is. Even though they are lockstep in opinion on everything, for the most part.

"Look! We're all being individuals together according to Rush's blueprint for individuality! By going against Hitlery, we are showing how we are all completely individuated and much more emotionally and psychologically mature than those damn LIEberals as we march together and speak the same sound bites!"

They're so clueless. I can't even express my hatred for their inability to realize just how brainwashed and groupthink they are while at the same time calling communism and dictatorships and tyrrany to be evil.

The conservative mind simply doesn't get irony and satire.

* Need to be unique: You feel that you need to be VERY unique and different.
* Need to NOT conform: You like to be different than others around you.
* Willingness to express dissent: You speak your mind freely, without giving thought to how others will react.


The last of these is especially true for me.

I have loved Ralph Waldo Emerson's writing for years. "Whoso would be a man must be nonconformist." "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds." To me, he has it exactly right.

An Indian friend told me after 9/11 that I should be afraid to speak my mind. I said, "If someone wants to kill me for something I've said, LET THEM! I would gladly die for the right to dissent!"

37. It's okay
For me, I found it strange that I have a strong need to be quite unique along with a fairly strong need to fit in as well.
One of my life's struggles I suppose is the conflict at times between the two.
