    I hate people more than you. :p

    The Machiavelli personality test has a range of 0-100
    Your Machiavelli score is: 63
    You are a high Mach, you endorse Machiavelli's opinions.

    62...:D

    Although some of the answers were more about what I think about the world in general - i.e. "do you believe that to be in power you have to be a bit of a bastard?" I would have said "slightly agree" even though it's not something I personally would choose to do, necessarily. That wasn't an actual question, by the way. :p

    I took the one here. Got 41/50, so it'd be 82/100? Site said the average was 25/50 for a normal adult male.

    Looks like I'll do good in Corporate America... Muahahaha.

    35/ 50 on Katie's. I would probably score higher if it asked more questions. :D

    Most people fall somewhere in the middle, but there's a significant minority at either extreme.

    Sorry about deleting the link....I decided I didn't want to feel like a manipulative bastard for the moment. Though maybe I'm just lost in my own ego. :p

    I got 26 of 50 on katie's test. Seems low compared to most of you others here.

    Edit: 46 of 100 on the original...

    Perhaps I should be worried. Or, more likely, perhaps you should be worried.

    meh... I liked the two-axis right/left/ascentionsist/cynic study better...

    64 but my personal beliefs are at odds with my ability to play machiavelli in order to understand the world. In discussion rather than personal beliefs I'd score MUCH higher.;)

    The first test is bogus... It's not possible to get less than 20 points. (I haven't checked the second)

    30 on the second test.

    Don't really like Machiavelli, though.
