YoYo, Ivan, amusing kids, and a really long survey

Sam and his brother Jeremy picked me up, and apparently Mike didn't need a ride since Joey was there... "since when are you not on the computer?!... Joey has a manual to pick up chicks?!... oh, his ANNUAL! I thought you said he had a manual... he deserves his own chapter... no, wait... give him the whole manual!" Hahaha. Then we went to pick up YoYo from Parker Place: she had to be at church early for Floodlight, and asked me where Steph was since she hadn't seen her since she got baptized. I had no idea if she'd be there tonight, heh. Sam was supposed to have a whole carload of people, but Ivan forgot to tell him about a dentist appointment... whoops!

The closing Awana ceremony went well: the kids were so cute when sharing the Creation story with us! Before that, Vivian was showing Sarah grad pictures of Joey / Emily / Vivian Lam / Isabel. Jason and Amos thought I'd gotten gypped with my six-year-service pin, but I hadn't... those are quirky teens! Michelle L.'s kids Ryan and Ethan are amusing as well: "How could you understand what I was saying when you don't really speak Chinese? Do you know what Chinese is?" Hahaha, so quirky!

Actually, my sister just called. She was mock-sad that I didn't have dinner with her: well, she hadn't called me back by the time I had to leave for Awana! I told her about Terrence's messages, too. As I thought, she wasn't at Floodlight... apparently, she has to pick up Terrence and his dad at the ferry terminal. Maybe we might go for bubble tea later. Who knows?

Here's a long survey from David K., in a Myspace bulletin:


1. When showering, do you start the water and then get in, or get in and start the water? Start the water first.

3. Do you moan in the shower like the people on the Herbal Essence commercial? No.

6. Have you ever brushed your teeth in the shower? Ew, no!

7. Have you ever dropped your soap on your foot? Yes, and that hurts!

8. How old do you look? Uh... I had some dumb bus driver tell me that I looked 12 once...

26. Have you ever sent an anonymous letter? No.

27. Can you fix your own car? No car here.

28. Have you ever turned someone down for a date? No.

35. Have you ever given to charity? I think so.

36. Would you kill a dog for $1000? I don't think so.

37. Do you sometimes get depressed? People don't get depressed "sometimes." You either are or you aren't. I haven't been sad about my life in a while.

39. Do you have plans for your future? Yes.

Phil, mistakes, blog catch-up, survey

Phil messaged me after 11: we had a nice brief chat. Says he's learning the guitar (which hurts his fingers) and also learning from his mistakes at his church: that's all you can do, really. Allow yourself the "why the heck did I do that?!" moment(s), accept the mistake, learn from it, and then move on!

Caught up on blogs: Dawn has musings about getting a "real" job and about cute little dogs, Dave's annoyed and wants to scream (but not necessarily at the biotech exhibit mockery), Spoz has a bunch of CD reviews (including Aphex Twin and Ladytron) and LOADS of weird photos with silly hats / onstage madness / "outtakes," and Steph discovered that the family ran out of plastic bags for garbage! Oh, THE SHAME of all Chinese families! o_O

Continuing last night's Bookworm game, I got a fourth white diamond by using two blue sapphires in the word "barre," but had to scramble the letter board because of a flaming tile. Now that game's over... which is probably a good thing because Sam just called and he'll be here in 15 minutes tops: LAST DAY OF REGULAR AWANA, PEEPS! :D

There's such a thing as too much cheerfulness over IM, people! / Survey Dump

I got up today at 10, for some weird reason. At least I now have the phone on (I hope?) so Sam can call me in a few hours.

I got messages from Terrence on MSN at 7:52 AM (he was up early!): "Wai!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm in your house at Steveston now! Thought I'd send you a hi from your home =) kk... cannot wait to see you and hang out over bubble tea!" (the Netspeak / grammar has mostly been cleaned up :P) Dude... too cheerful for a morning IM message! IT IS NOT MY HOUSE, seeing as I never really lived there full-time for an extended period. As for hanging out over bubble tea, maybe we can do that when I feel less like dying, kthx! Maybe I'll call my sister at a more reasonable time (like 1 or after Floodlight) to make arrangements for tomorrow. (yes, I know he means well, but still!)

Joking accusations of murder / Mega Man / blogquizzes

As I thought, Translink is on crack: it took more than 20 minutes to get to the meeting place that Eric and I designated... more like 45 minutes or so! During the ride there, he bugged me about supposedly murdering my sister / Vivian S. / Nina and her son Dylan: "That must have been quite the physical feat for you to throw their bodies off the mountain on the Grouse Grind! I think you need to read the Crime Library less, actually! You didn't have to eliminate witnesses, but you thought it out and planned it! The traffic jam is caused by the investigation of four murders YOU committed this week, including one of a baby.. well, a two-year-old!" Uh, yeah... I don't think so!

We also discussed some of the MEGA MAN characters: Dr. Wily (the main villain who made all of the robot masters listed), Proto Man (Mega Man's brother who was also a Dr. Light creation), Cut Man, Guts Man, Ice Man, Bomb Man, Fire Man, and Elec Man were in the first game. Metal Man, Air Man, Bubble Man, Quick Man, Heat Man, Flash Man, Crash Man, and Wood Man were in the second game. Needle Man, Magnet Man, Snake Man, Gemini Man, Hard Man, Top Man, Spark Man, and Shadow Man were in the third game. Bright Man, Pharoah Man, Drill Man, Ring Man, Toad Man, Dust Man, Dive Man, and Skull Man were in the fourth game. Gravity Man, Wave Man, Stone Man, Gyro Man, Star Man, Charge Man, Napalm Man, and Crystal Man were in the fifth game. Blizzard Man, Centaur Man, Flame Man, Knight Man, Plant Man, Tomahawk Man, Wind Man, and Yamato Man were in the sixth game. After that, I think Eric and Jon stopped playing the series.. having discovered other sorts of games like DRAGON WARRIOR, haha. (I got all this from Wikipedia articles... I do NOT have that good a memory! :P)

At church, I talked to Danielle / Sheena / Cindy / Christon / Ben about Golden Ears camp stress (next weekend!), spoon-feeding things to people, and meal planning. Steph came out of her Committee meeting and informed me that her friend Terrence had called her this morning to ask if she could pick him and his dad up from the airport since they were visiting, and that she was leaving right then. When I told this to Eric later, he termed it a "coincidence" that supported his joking theory that I'd murdered her since he hadn't seen her for about a week... yeah sure!

I told Sheena that I wasn't sure if she could sign out the coolers without my dad being there, and to call him on Tuesday... that IS a little tight if their camp starts on Friday, though! Hopefully she can figure things out! (Nathan asked if he could use my dad's printer when he wasn't there: I cheerfully told him that he could try it!)

Terry told us later that he had a blowtorch in his kitchen: oh my! Jen, Vivian, and I talked about food (another Spiritual Formation talk!) and soccer... maybe when Jon gets back, they can watch the World Cup together! I gave Randal his early birthday present: I hope he likes the history Bathroom Reader! He told me that I had just encouraged him to spend more time in the bathroom, haha. Eric gave me a weird look, but it's how I spread the love... hehehe. Andrea told me that her brother Sherman thought it was sweet how I remembered his birthday: I always do!

I caught Sam on his way out: I already know he can't give me a ride home tomorrow because of Floodlight, so maybe I'll get Michelle or Auntie Rebecca to do so. (I better remember!) He'll call me tomorrow afternoon before 3-ish since we kinda have to be there early (he's working!), so that should be fine. I told Maisie that she could have the rest of my lemonberry crumble: I have enough dessert temptation as it is around here! Jeremy says he had sailing and a barbecue planned for tomorrow... sounds good! Andrea seemed to like his bongo playing for worship: it was cool. Now I know that he and Jon have their concern for Darfur (Africa) in common: compassion is important for them and our teens / kids / babies, as well!

Danielle told Nathan that it looked from upstairs like he was doing his homework on his laptop, when he was actually formatting / taking notes on the talk... but we joked that nobody really believed him except Eric since he was right beside him. From my seat a few rows back, it looked like he was doing something on the computer that didn't involve Internet browsing! Vania told me that the cookies were good, so I had to have one. When Maisie offered us some cupcakes, everyone said they'd had too much dessert: the aforementioned crumble / cookies, salmon on crackers, frozen cream puffs, strawberry pie with whipped cream, crème brulée, etc. (Eric didn't bring any since we always had leftovers, and he had his guitar to look after... reasonable!) Karen was in the mood for something salty (nachos at BP), so I told her of the price hike.

On the way home, I was kinda calm and then broke into random laughter: that made Eric think I was crazy, especially when I used my hand sanitizer. There was nobody to protect him or keep him safe, haha. He wanted to see my sister to ask if she wanted to go to the NHL draft in a couple of weeks: maybe he'll call her tomorrow! Turns out he might cancel his WOW subscription since he only gets interested in playing it in SPURTS and not all the time. He's finished HALF-LIFE 2, and broke out that procreation quote again too... we'd talked about Advil earlier. (like I said: "First drugs and now sex... what the heck?!")

I told him what Steph had said about the ImageStation uploader and her huge watermelon pictures. Eric will have to check his email to see if the Toronto site is down, and says that there are other sites besides Photobucket... I know that, but just told that to her because it's what *I* personally use! He says there's one with a yellow frog: I have no idea what that is, heh. Good times indeed, with more to come on Sunday!

Oooh, I just got a white diamond in Bookworm by using two blue sapphires in the word "gal." Then I used that white diamond in the word "fuel." (Metallica's FUEL: "gimme fuel, gimme fire, gimme that which I desire...") Hey, I got another white diamond by using three gold tiles to make the word "horny"... I used THAT one on the word "bulbs." Third white diamond on the word "quest," and used on the word "nae." :D

Wanna Spell? (fridge magnets!) / Work arrangements / Frozen items / Ann Rule crime books

Thank goodness for autosaves. :D

Wanna Spell? reminds me of those fridge magnets I see at the store. Drag letters and create a phrase!

I kinda bugged Eric over MSN about the messages I got yesterday... "Told you what? Oh... um... yeah. Easiest if you can get here by 6, although I was guessing that your item was frozen and you'd like it to remain in the freezer for as long as possible. Mmm, frozen fudgesicles with chocolate stuck to the wrapper!" Hahaha, that is SO gross! I'd stay home were it not for the money I invested in the lemonberry crumble... yeah, I could eat it myself, but I dunno about that! (I'd have bought a frozen item, but didn't want it to melt and re-freeze... yuck!)

That should be doable if I leave by 5:20 (or 5:15, haha) and find my copy of Ann Rule's Worth More Dead: And Other True Cases. I think it's somewhere on my bookshelf... I've almost finished her Green River, Running Red, after all. ;) (I brought up those books to Eric, and he immediately thought I'd murdered my sister and Vivian S. on Tuesday... um, no... HAHAHAHA!)

I got this spam as a response to a post I made some time ago... spammers are idiots, I tell you! I've received something similar in email, but not in journal comments before this! It's got bad grammar and mentions of money... it's spam, all right!


It took me a long time to make up my mind to let you know about this business proposal I am to introduce to you. It is because I don't want to throw away golden opportunity I have by involving the wrong person . I do hope that you will not let me down because this is something that will be of mutual benefit to both of us.

As indicated above, my name is Phillip Sankoh only son of the rebel leader FODAY F. SANKOH former chairman of A Sierra Leonine Gold and Diamond Corporation). My father was arrested by the present government of Mr. TEJAN KABBAH for planing to overthrew his government. Though, I do not know to what extend you are familiar with events and disturbances in Sierra Leone.

However, during the disturbances and prior to my father's arrest, he gave me a certificate meant for a secret deposit he made in a Security Company in Abidjan the capital city of cote d'lvoire. The deposit is worth $ 10,000,000.00 (Ten million united state dollars only) declared as containing family items,which the Security Company officials is not aware of the real content of the box because of security reason.

According to my father, the said money was paid to the corporation by it's overseas customers in the heat of the disturbances. He made this deposit as belonging to my father's foreign partners with the hope of converting it to his family use at the end of the conflict. But later, he was arrested when the fracas intensified as a result of the involvement of the UN Peace Keeping force in Sierra Leone .

On the strength of the above, We are presently in guest house Abidjan Cote D'lvore . However I have gone to the Security Company to confirm the deposit and inform them that my father's foreign partner is coming to claim the consignment.

Therefore, I solicit for your assistance (hoping that you are honest and trustworthy) in transferring the money out of Africa for business world . You will be compensated adequately for your participation in this transaction. if you are interested, I will highly appreciate your physical presence in Abidjan Cote D'lvoire for the following reasons :

1- To know each other very well
2- To sign agreement of trust
3- To see and confirm everything yourself.
4- To finalise modalities for successful transfer of the money.

For the propose of security and to guarantee hitch-free transaction, as soon as you receive this message. You must maintain absolute confidentillity to ensure success. Please reply on this private email address ; for more information.

Awaiting your immediate response.

Best Regard,
Phillip and Victoria.

You Communicate With Your Ears

You love conversations, both as a listener and a talker.
What people say is important to you, and you're often most affected by words, not actions.
You love to hear compliments from others. And when you're upset, you often talk to yourself.
Music is very important to you. It's difficult to find you without your iPod.

Well, I don't HAVE an iPod... bloody expensive things! :P

Eric's "silly girl" messages, long survey about me

Note: LJ Total World Domination blogquiz, by Alison.

I thought I was going to bed at 11:05 (which is early for me), but instead it turned out to be more of a nap since I woke up at 12:45.. and here I thought I'd be tired enough because of something else to make it a night! :P The Nyquil I just took will help in that regard, though: yay for Fossil Fuel chasers!

When I got to the computer, I found a series of messages from Eric: "I will be going to church straight from work. [my auto-response] You there? FLAMMY! Wake up, silly girl!" Hahaha, I went to bed eleven minutes before that! Also... way to make me waste the money on the crumble unless we can make Cambie / Jacombs arrangements tomorrow sometime like we did for Phil's going-away bash. :P

Boston Pizza being too expensive, desserts, and Half-Life 2

It's official: Boston Pizza is now TOO EXPENSIVE for me. I was sort of able to absorb the price hike when they changed their menu a while back, but I went back tonight and noticed that they'd raised prices again: the extra dollar does make a difference sometimes! I haven't had a steak from there in at least a few months, mainly because of the previous price hike and various money issues. But now, I don't think I'll go there except MAYBE on Pasta Tuesdays... and maybe not even then. :P Corey was telling me some time ago that Boston's was too expensive for his family, and now I guess the price hike has made its way up here as well. *sigh*

I got three Hungry Man Salisbury Steak microwaveable meals (hopefully they're as good as I remember from months ago :P), plus three other ones from Stouffer's since I had coupons to save $1.50 on three of them. For the dessert tomorrow, I was thinking about generic vanilla ice cream, but figured that it would melt over the course of the evening... so I opted for some lemonberry crumble. (healthier than a cheesecake, and less expensive!)

Before I went out, Eric was telling me about some HALF-LIFE 2: EPISODE 1 semi-quote which didn't quite involve the word "procrastination." It involved another word which started with "procr" and ended with "ation," but which could be taken the wrong way out of context... believe me, I knew what he was talking about! He told me that "now would be an excellent time for procrastination" when figuring out my MSN name. In the game, there's a "reproductive suppression field," which is down at the time Dr. Kleiner (a goofball scientist) says the real quote. ("Or in other words, you should all do your part for the revival of the species.")

ImageStation, dessert, school survey, and Blogthings quizzes

The other day, I asked my sister why she hadn't sent any of the SLB pictures to us. Turns out the ImageStation uploader hasn't worked on her computer for a couple of months... she doesn't know why, either. So I suggested Photobucket to her: I don't think she'll take my advice since she's like that, but I did my part. :P

I don't really feel like going out and buying a cheesecake for tomorrow's dessert thing if I may not be there, but it's better than sacrificing one of my six Ben and Jerry's containers or the 2L strawberries and cream Nestlé container! Oh well, at least if I go out now, I can buy one (or two?) Hungry Man Salisbury Steak thingers too. More money spent, but at least I'll be doing my part! I've just about ruined another noodle thing by leaving it on the stove too long, so I need to eat too... *argh*

Note: LJ Muppet Show blogquiz, by fluffyhead.

Stupid computer not responding... thank goodness for autosaves! :D

I just got more Fellowship email, and this is to confirm Fellowship Directory information. At least Karen asked for the correct spelling of my name (spelling is VERY important!), although you'd think she'd know it by NOW since I'm SOOOOOO well-known around church, haha. (no, I half-kid :P) I'm half-tempted to be snarky / humorous in my reply and say that I wouldn't be replying from a certain email address if it wasn't my current email address! HAHAHA... I may just do it, then warn her that I'm in a weird mood. (she doesn't know HOW weird!) ;)

I get so little chance to be snarky / humorous to people that I know in real life... although I don't recommend this as a normal mode of relating to them. ;) Then again, she made a typo in my email address, so I can point that out to her NICELY too.. and yes, I'd like to remain on the email list. Provides blogging material / information of sorts after I cringe at the perky tone. ;)

I was sitting here earlier reading old conversations from years gone by, and I was laughing like crazy. As I said to Corey, I thought I was going crazy / totally losing it at the time. I suppose it's a good idea to get some of it out of my system before seeing Eric M. on Friday, although I might laugh (or "cackle" as he calls it) as soon as I get into the car. Just for consistency's sake, since I've been doing it the past few weeks running (but not on Sunday), and he remarked on that to my sister last Friday. ;)

The "Sean" reference in the post title refers to a question that my friend Sean asked Citrus about his girlfriend before Danielle. (this was before we met Danielle in 2003) Sean's known for asking weird questions (as is Justin: "Hon, does Eva SMELL good?! Did you kiss her yet?!"), so we weren't surprised when we were over at Sarah and Hannah's in summer 2002 for (I think) Hannah's going-away party. (she'd suddenly received an offer to teach stuff in Hong Kong)

A few of us (Sean, Citrus, Brian, me) were in a small room discussing friends and what we were going to do that summer. Sean turned the discussion to Citrus' experiences in Calgary and his then-girlfriend, who was a pastor's daughter. At first, he asked normal questions... but then came out with: "Did you LOSE IT with her?!" After we'd gotten over our shock, Brian asked Sean if he knew what that meant! Sean claimed not to know because he was "sooooooooo innocent!" but we knew THAT wasn't true! (he'd been quite fond of telling us dirty stories a couple years before that) When we told this story to Danielle years later, she just laughed since she knew what Sean was like by then!

Avoid conflict, eh? Hmm... that's probably a good idea! o_O

You scored 22% Non-Reductionism, 66% Epistemological Absolutism, and 66% Moral Objectivism!
You are an R-A-O: a metaphysical Reductionist, an epistemological Absolutist, and a moral Objectivist. What does this all mean? Well, keep reading to find out.

Metaphysics: Reductionism (Monism or Positivism)
In metaphysics, my test measures your tendency towards Reductionism or Non-Reductionism. As a Reductionist, you like to cut away the metaphysical fat as opposed to multiplying concepts and entities like so many baby rabbits. The two broad categories of Reductionists that my test recognizes are Monists and Positivists.

1. Monists do not cut away the metaphysical fat so much as they just put the meat into a grinder and synthesize the fat into the meat. They tend to condense particular things and ideas into a Unity or Absolute, in other words. If you believe that reality is ultimately a unity and that mind and matter both exist but are simply two different ways of looking at the same substance, then you are a neutral monist in the sense of Spinoza. If you believe that reality is ultimately an Absolute because a whole is more than just the sum of its parts, proven by the fact that we can never have knowledge of a particular thing unless we also grasp its relations to the ultimate Absolute or whole of reality with which it is bound up, and if you feel that this Absolute is characterized by Spirit or Mind, and not matter, then you share the same views as Hegel and even Plato to a degree. A monist -- because he or she believes that reality is a Unity or Absolute -- tends to synthesize all particulars into universals, deny the reality of matter (Hegel) or mind (Spinoza, sort of), and so on. These concepts are all cast into the meat grinder and come out as a unified whole. Famous monists include philosophers such as Hegel, Spinoza, and Parmenides.

If none of the above sounded like you, then you are most definitely the other type of Reductionist.
2. Positivists, unlike monists, do not synthesize two apparently competing views into one -- instead, they do away with one of the views, that being the one that cannot be empirically verified. A positivist, then, cuts away the metaphysical fat as meaningless conjecture about nothing in particular. He relies primarily on a tool called Occam's Razor to shave away these ideas. Occam's Razor states that we should do away with any hypotheses that needlessly multiply explanatory entities. For instance, in regards to the dispute about the existence of universals, a positivist tends to adopt the position of nominalism -- which is the belief that only particulars are real. A universal is only a linguistic construction we use to put particulars into groups -- meaning we can reduce all universals to the sum of their parts, that being particulars. After all, we can never have empirical experience of "whiteness," only particular things that are white -- nor have we ever observed the universal "mankind," though we can observe individual men. On the mind-body problem, a positivist will be likely to do away with the concept of "mind," reducing it to a material product of our brain functioning. This position is often referred to as the Identity-Theory, because it equates mental states to states of the brain. Clearly, a positivist tends towards a materialistic outlook. Positivism will also revile any idealist conception of reality, which maintains that the world of experience and perception is merely a phenomenal world, whereas the "real" world lies underneath experience and is fundamentally unknowable. A positivist will tend to do away with the idealist hypothesis as needless and unverifiable. Well-known positivists include Carnap, Ayer, and Wittgenstein.


Epistemology: Absolutism (Rationalism or Pragmatism)
My test measures one's tendency towards Absolutism or Skepticism in regards to epistemology. As an Absolutist, you believe that objective knowledge is possible given the right approach, and you deny the claims of skeptical philosophers who insist that we can never have knowledge of ultimate reality. The two types of Absolutists recognized by my test are Rationalists and Pragmatists.

1. Rationalists believe that the use of reason ultimately provides the best route to truth. A rationalist usually defines truth as a correspondence between propositions and reality, taking the common-sense route. Also, rationalists tend to believe that knowledge of reality is made possible through certain foundational beliefs. This stance is known as foundationalism. A foundationalist believes that, because we cannot justify the truth of every statement in an infinite regress, we ultimately reach a foundation of knowledge. This foundation is composed of a priori truths, like mathematics and logic, as well as undoubtable truths like one's belief in his or her own existence. The belief that experiences and memories are veridical is also part of the foundation. Thus, for a rationalist knowledge of reality is made possible through our foundational beliefs, which we do not need to justify because we find them to be undoubtable and self-evident. In regards to science, a rationalist will tend to emphasize the foundational assumptions of scientific inquiry as prior to and more important than scientific inquiry itself. If science does lead to truth, it is only because it is based upon the assumption of certain rational principles such as "Every event is caused" and "The future will resemble the past." Philosophy has a wide representation of philosophical rationalists -- Descartes, Spinoza, Liebniz, and many others.

If that didn't sound like your own views, then you are most likely the other type of Absolutist: the Pragmatist.
2. Epistemological Pragmatists
are fundamentally identified by their definition of truth. Truth is, on this view, merely a measure of a proposition's success in inquiry. This view is a strictly scientific notion of truth. A proposition can be called true if it leads to successful predictions or coheres best with the observed facts about the world. Thus, for the pragmatist, knowledge of reality is possible through scientific reasoning. A pragmatist emphasizes man's fallibility, and hence takes baby steps towards knowledge through scientific methodology. Any truth claim for a pragmatist is open to revision and subject to change -- if empirical observations lead us to call even logical rules into question (like quantum physics has done for the law of the excluded middle), then we can and should abandon even these supposed a priori and "absolutely certain" logical rules if they do not accord with our testing andrefuting of our various propositions. As a consequence of this, a pragmatist doesn't feel that scientific knowledge is based upon unfounded assumptions that are taken to be true without any sort of justification -- rather, they believe that the successes of scientific inquiry have proved that its assumptions are well-founded. For instance, the assumption of science that the future will be like the past is adequately shown by the amazing success of scientific theories in predicting future events -- how else could this be possible unless the assumption were true? Pragmatism borrows elements from realism and yet attempts to account for the critiques made by skeptics and relativists. It is essentially a type of philosophical opportunism -- it borrows the best stances from a large number of philosophical systems and attempts to discard the problems of these systems by combining them with others. Famous pragmatists of this type are Peirce and Dewey.


Ethics: Objectivism (Deontology or Logical Positivism)
In Ethics, my test measures your tendency towards moral Objectivism or moral Relativism. As a moral Objectivist, you are opposed to Subjectivist moral theories and believe that morality applies to people universally and actually describes objects and situations out in the world as opposed to just subjects themselves. The two types of moral Objectivists my test recognizes are Kantian Deontologists and Utilitarians.

1. Kantian Deontologists believe that the one intrinsic good is a good will. As rational beings capable of making decisions, the moral worth of our decisions is ultimately derived from the intentions behind our actions, not their consequences. A moral being does the right thing not out of recognition of any consequences, but out of a sense of moral duty. For Kant, a good will is the ultimate good because to deny the will is to deny the one thing that makes us rational, moral beings. If an act will accord with or further our status as free, rational beings, and it is possible to will the universalization of such a moral principle without infringing upon our good wills, then an act is good. Kant's categorical imperative provides an objective standard to judge moral worth -- it is not hypothetical in the sense of other imperatives, which hide a latent if-clause. For instance, "Eating razors is good" is good ONLY if you tack on an if-clause that says something like: "If you wish to destroy your gums." Thus, the categorical imperative is good, not just IF something is the case, but in ALL cases. It requires people to treat others as ends, and not means to ends, for to treat everyone as a means to an ends would be to deny them their ability to function as rational, free beings -- which is what makes morality possible in the first place. The major proponent of this view in the history of philosophy is, quite obviously, Kant.

If that didn't sound like your position, then you are probably the other variety of moral Objectivist -- the Utilitarian.
2. Utilitarians
define "happiness" or "pleasure" as the sole intrinsic good, and the principle "The greatest pleasure for the greatest number" best reflects a Utilitarian view of ethics. Utilitarianism is a consequentialist moral theory, meaning the consequences of an action -- not the intentions behind it -- determine the act's moral worth. Even if you intended to do great evil with a certain act, if the act produces a net gain of pleasure and happiness for the greatest number, then it was indeed a good act because your intentions weren't realized. What matters in this scenario, obviously, is the consequences of the act. Utilitarianism, of course, can also be reduced to Hedonism. If you do not feel that the greatest happiness of the greatest number matters, but only pay heed to the greatest happiness of individuals, then you are more adequately classified as a Hedonist. But both Utilitarians and Hedonists define "pleasure" as an intrinsic good and determine the moral worth of an act through its consequences. The only difference is whether we measure the collective pleasure of a group or only an individual's pleasure. Prominent Utilitarians include Bentham and Mill.


As you can see, when your philosophical position is narrowed down, there are so many potential categories that an OKCupid test cannot account for them all. But, taken as very broad categories or philosophical styles, you are best characterized as an R-A-O. Your exact philosophical opposite would be an N-S-R.
