Your result for The "What Type of Intellectual are You?" Test...

The Dialectician

You scored 18% empirical, 60% public, and 45% teaching-oriented

You are The Dialectician!

You've accepted long ago that gaining knowledge is a lifetime project. In fact, in your mind, you've just barely scratched the surface. But you feel an urge to learn everything you can from whomever you meet, and to encourage others on their own pursuits.

People may find you unconvincing, or are so confident in their knowledge they don't recognize the challenges you can produce. But the dialectician has usually been recognized as ahead of her time, eventually.

Wait--all of the pictures in this test are of philosophers, right? :)

I have to admit, all I can do is stare at that and wonder why they didn't use a picture of Hegel.

Well, since I had to look Hegel up to find out who he was, I can't really comment. ;)

:D "Hegelian dialectic" is the first thing I think of when I see the world, probably because Chris on Northern Exposure was rather fond of it. And I think we may have done something with it in a high school history class, maybe, and of course there are critical theorists who are quite fond of it...

Hegel, schmegel. I bow down to any form of Stevensian philosophy, whatsoever. :D :D :D :D

Stevensian philosophy is by far the best philosophy. If I were to ever teach a philosophy class, we'd just watch episodes of the show the entire semester.

("I'm going to recite the three parts of the Hegelian dialectic, and then you're coming with me, one way or another. Thesis. Antithesis. Synthesis!")

You are The Bibliophile!



There's nothing you love more than the raw digestion of ideas. You spend your time collating the many works you've encountered into a grand enlightened whole.



Most of the things you observe in the real world become consistent and easy to explain--a hundred different factors all add up. But because you know so many facets of the issues, you can have a hard time explaining them to other people. You may find success in a practical discipline like politics or business, where the results speak for themselves!

Politics or business? I don't think so.

Re: I was...

Nothing in my world becomes very consistent. 'Tis the nature of my brain. Sometimes it's a good thing, sometimes its...ooh, shiny!
