You scored as Hedonism.     (I really suspect this is going to be very popular among Libertarians as and outcome.)
Your life is guided by the principles of Hedonism: You believe that pleasure is a great, or the greatest, good; and you try to enjoy life�s pleasures as much as you can.

�Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die!�

Hedonism   85%

Existentialism   80%  (I also think this will be popular among Libertarians.)

Your life is guided by the concept of Existentialism: You choose the meaning and purpose of your life.

“Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.”
“It is up to you to give [life] a meaning.”
--Jean-Paul Sartre

“It is man's natural sickness to believe that he possesses the Truth.”
--Blaise Pascal

Strong Egoism   55%   (This too seemed to be Libertarian in nature.)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egoism  This linked article claims Harry Brown and Ayn Rand were both advocates for Egoism.

Justice (Fairness)   50%

Apathy   40%

Kantianism   35%

Utilitarianism   30%

Nihilism   30%

Divine Command     10%

Really, the questions are all leading so I had to interpret and tactically choose them, trying to figure out what they were really saying. I mean, I could say that the ultimate purpose is 'for all to have happiness' but the test doesn't take into account that I believe that will happen if the free market is allowed to exist and the state stops meddling and stealing - it probably thinks I am into state theft if I answer that. I couldn't know. And so on.

My top three were Existentialism, Hedonism, and Justice with 90%, 85%, and 80% respectively.  Following that I got Kantianism, Strong Egoism, and Utilitarianism (75%, 60%, 60%).  The rest were below 20%.

What philosophy do you follow? (v1.03)
You scored as a Strong Egoism
Your life is very much guided by the concept of Egoism: You work primarily to promote your own interests.

I swear by my life, and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
I am not primarily an advocate of capitalism, but of egoism; and I am not primarily an advocate of egoism, but of reason. If one recognizes the supremacy of reason and applies it consistently, all the rest follows.
--Ayn Rand

It's hard to imagine how a Libertarian could ever be Utilitarian. Aren't those nearly diametrically opposed concepts? I suppose one could be Libertarian because he believes it works best rather than on principle.

I don't even know what that is and yet I scored 100% for that AND Existentialism. So I need to die? What exactly am I guilty of?
