    How cynical are you? No, REALLY.
    I think of all the groups I've ever been associated with, folks in AM are the most cynical. I can't imagine why...can you?

    And speaking of you, how cynical do you suppose you really are? Take a test and find out.

    I was surprised to find out that I'm not really all that cynical after all.

    You Are 52% Cynical

    Yes, you are cynical, but more than anything, you're a realist.
    You see what's screwed up in the world, but you also take time to remember what's right.

    Going from "TrustNo1" to "Trust" probably dropped it a good 60+ percentage points...

    I was surprised to score only 44%, but many of the questions were poorly worded -- I would have expected to score much higher. I am definitely a skeptic, and most people consider me to be cynical.

    12% here too

    Cynical? Not even close! If anything, you're a bit naive.
    Overall, you enjoy life and try not to be paranoid. Even if you've been burned before.

    I'm 36% cynical. I guess there's room for improvement.

    IMO - everyone is cynical to some extent. It varies with lifestyle, personal motivation, career, inner values, life experience.

    There can be a fine line between cynicism and negative existence though - so I try to focus on / emphasize the positive that can exist in any situation. My father once remarked: "because I don't respond does not mean I agree."

    With cynicism, my preference to find the positive that can come from most situations does not blind me to the reality - only the manner in which I handle the resolve.

    Read this quote a while back (can't remember where, maybe from someone's signature), and I thought it was perfect. I'm referred to as the 'cynical bastard' by my family sometimes..

    ***You Are 68% Cynical***


    You're a full blown cynic... and probably even skeptical of these results.
    You have your optimistic moments, but most likely you keep them to yourself.
    Some call it cynicism. I call it realism.
    Anyone who knows me will say I am a very optimistic person, but I am also aware that life has many variables. The reality is that it takes a certain level of talent, work and a little luck to do anything. The luck part is where I sometimes build in room for reality.

    To all of you "naive" ones in here, my Father, the exiled King of Scooterville was exiled in a bloody coup late last year. In his haste to escape with his life, he left behind $10 million in gold boullion in a safety deposit box in Scooterville. Well, yadda yadda yadda, blah blah blah, send me $25,000 to allow me to retieve the gold and I will split it 50/50 with you.
    My very best to you and your kindly family,
    This is NOT a scam. Thank you!
    Prince Scoot of Lake Fork

    No, but when you send the money I will be vacationing in Nigeria, so of course I will need it sent to my address there

    10 bucks says you'll actually receive a serious inquiry from someone reading this thread (maybe not today, but one day)...

    Oh thank you for this wonderful offer. Send me your banking information and I'll have the $25,000 transferred into your account tomorrow.

    Yeah sure, you'd like me to believe that you will only give me 50% of the booty, but I'm cynical, so I know better my dear Prince Scoot in the exiled province of Lake Fork. You must think that I was born yesterday to fall for that one!! Hah!! the joke is on you oh exiled one. I will only do this if you promise (verbally without witnesses) to give me 75% of the take! Knowing that you ain't got squat right now, you and I both know you'll take my deal.

    But to show you I'm a nice guy, I'll send $25,000 cash in exchange for taking my offer because I'm a realist who knows who needs what to make it happen! So take it or leave it, either way I've taught you a valuable lesson about who's naive and who's not!! hehe

    Only scored 36% - I'm surprised, but then I don't trust that quiz.

    How could this be when I really think Scooter is a prince?

    Oh yeah, these quizzes are just ploys by the government to get more information about their people. Nothing is real.

    There, I feel more cynical now.
