Comparing Personality and Philosopher Quizzes
First off, the personality quiz did not really come as a surprise to me. While in the military I already did these types of quizzes and have come out with the same results time after time. I do agree with it though. The result of the quiz was that I am intrinsic. With all my personal experiences and the military PTSD have made me become more and more intrinsic the older I get. I know that I tend to be more and more inner self and self-pity.
The philosopher quiz came as a bit of a surprise. The result was Jean Paul Sartre, a French philosopher and a Prisoner Of War victim in World War 2, then I read a statement from him, as humans, "condemned to be free." I see what he was talking about. As human we are all condemned because of all the laws, religions, and all the restrictions to live. I do agree that we need these hurdles to keep the violence down and people in line.
The comparing of the two quizzes makes the philosophy a little easier to understand. With me being intrinsic and everything is self-centered which I see the humans are condemned to be free. Everything in the world is self-centered. Look at here in America, to get a bill passed that we can all benefit from; our politicians decide to add pork for their self-pleasure where does that get us to be “free?” It really does not. America is stuck on an extrinsic thought of that we are free because of our soldiers passing. What they do not see is the intrinsic thought of they do not have to fight the fight to be free. They also do not see the thought of freedom and then all the rules and laws we endure. I do however agree with the whole thought process that we need the rules and wars to keep us inline.
So it doesn’t really matter if we are free and not, because when it all said and done we are still living and breathing. I do not care about me being intrinsic or that the philosopher I am who I...
