Error Rate of Online Surveys

I'm a sucker for online surveys. I know they're l-ame, but I'm thrilled when any survey result comes close to being right about me.

A friend inspired me to try the book survey. The result?




You're Hamlet!

by William Shakespeare

Something is rotten in your state. You don't know whether you would
rather live or die. And you keep speaking (unwittingly) in iambic pentameter. Even with
these setbacks, you have no idea just how awful life can get. With your whole family in
turmoil and your love interest soaked, there isn't exactly room for hope in your world.
No wonder you talk to yourself all the time!



Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.

Huh? But I wanted to be Lizzie Bennet--from my imaginary epilogue to Pride and Prejudice. Or Don Quixote tipping windmills! Lucy in Narnia! Harry's Hermione! Anne of Green Gables! Jo March, or any of her sisters! Darn surveys...I vow I'll never take another one.

Ooo...this one looks solid...

By the way, the religion test was more accurate, restoring my faith in online surveys. :-)

You scored as Reformed Evangelical. You take the Bible very seriously because it is God's Word. You most likely hold to TULIP and are sceptical about the possibilities of universal atonement or resistible grace. The most important thing the Church can do is make sure people hear how they can go to heaven when they die.

Here are my results:

You are an evangelical in the Wesleyan tradition. You believe that God's grace enables you to choose to believe in him, even though you yourself are totally depraved. The gift of the Holy Spirit gives you assurance of your salvation, and he also enables you to live the life of obedience to which God has called us. You are influenced heavly by John Wesley and the Methodists

Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan 86%
Reformed Evangelical 75%
Fundamentalist 68%
Neo orthodox 61%
Charismatic/Pentecostal 46%
Emergent/Postmodern 43%
Classical Liberal 32%
Roman Catholics 11%
Modern Liberal 0%

My comparison to Bethany is interesting!
