You got: Niccolo Machiavelli

Ahhhhh, a true Machiavellian…. You believe it is much better to be feared than loved. You are focused on your own interests and are willing to manipulate, deceive, exploit, and even “satisfy and stupefy” others to achieve your goals. You will do whatever it takes to get ahead and whoever’s brother, mother, or second-cousin that has to be killed in process is just a “mean” that will be justified in the end...

You got: John Locke

You got Locke! You are a naturally reasonable person, and you truly care about the common good. You value the protection of property and believe that a person’s fundamental rights include: the right to their life, the right to the fruits of their labor, and their right to private property (including their own body). You believe limits must be in place for the common good and that a system of checks and balances is an ideal tactic. Oh! And don’t forget about the separation of church and state…

You got: St. Augustine

Did you used to be a confused adolescent partaking in sinful actions? Do you like to steal pears in your spare time? It seems like you did because you got Augustine! After this bad boy learned that his way of life was downright despicable by picking up a book (which happened to be the Bible), he turned into one of the greatest theologians and saints in the history of the Catholic Church. Unlike your past self, you believe that God is the end that all restless hearts strive for. You passionately support faith, hope, and charity and value the advice you’ve received from influential mentors (including your mom)!

You got: Karl Marx

You got Marx, the father of Communism! As a Marxist, you are an advocate for equality, constantly fighting for equal rights for all people! You believe so deeply that inequality is the root of all evil that you are willing to do anything -- and I mean anything -- to achieve true equality by working together with all different groups of people. You are great in group settings, and you love teamwork, making you an indispensable team player. Oh, and of course you look great in red!

You got: Friedrich Nietzsche

You got Nietzsche! Like a true modern philosopher, you believe power is the most important aspect of human life. You don’t necessarily consider yourself a religious person, and rather fill your spare time thinking up ways to get ahead of the game! You think being your authentic self is more important than following the crowd, which is why it’s so easy for you to thrive in individual settings.
