What kind of Mormon are you?

Sabayon referenced an interesting quiz called What Kind of Mormon Are You? and I decided to take it. Apparently I am a "Radical Mormon" - scoring with fairly high knowledge; very low cultural homogeneity; and very, very low orthodoxy. Not too surprising. Take the quiz yourself, it's fun.

My Results:

Radical Mormon

-10 Orthodoxy, 5 LDS knowledge, -16 Cultural homogeneity

People like you have been excommunicated. In fact, you might be personal friends with some of them. Your feminist/liberal/revisionist/free living lifestyle just doesn't click with most Latter-day Saints, but you don't think that's necessarily a bad thing.

I was really surprised that I only came up -2 on orthodoxy. I was a sunstone Mormon. If they'd had more ?? about the modern church vs. the historical church, I doubt I would have come up so complacent.

I'm a Sunstone Mormon, although I don't know that I've ever actually read Sunstone (that I can remember).

"You're on the cutting edge of LDS progressivism. You believe scholarship and change would benefit the LDS Church, but you realize that your place in Mormonism is marginal."

-5 on Orthodoxy
6 on Knowledge
-6 on Homogenity

Hey Michael T -- I see we're scheduled to chat about conference this weekend on ME so I googled you and was interested in this post. I really disliked the limited options to those quiz questions. I went with the closest, which sometimes wasn't even in the ballpark, but I guess I agree with the result:

Mormon Intellectual (one of the three horseman of the mormon apocalypse).

"The LDS Church's deep thinkers haven't always been the best-received by the hierarchy, but faith seeketh understanding. Mormonism has a rich, fascinating past, and a unique theology. You think this should be embraced by Latter-day Saints."

1 Orthodoxy
5 LDS knowledge
5 Cultural homogeneity

Interesting quiz. Thanks for the recomendation.

Thanks Glenn, and it's nice to meet you! I should probably take the quiz again; I think my results might be significantly different today than they were a year ago.
