Like so many of the things I find on blogs around the internet, I’m about 5 years behind the rest of the world on this one. It usually goes like this: I find a fierce discussion in the comments and write my own reply, only to realize that the last person to comment died 200 years ago (that’s c. 2005 in blog years).
Anyhow, I found this test off a now-defunct site called rebelwithacause, which I stumbled upon by clicking a hyperlinked comment on a recommended post on Dovbear from 2006 called why the j-blogosphere matters. And yes, a cat did eat a goat as well, smartass.
Here’s the test: The Orthodoxy Test
Anyhow, whoever wrote it has some great questions and answers that really make you think. It was weird though, because after carefully considering each question, I usually came to the conclusion “I don’t care”. That wasn’t one of the options, so I answered with the opinion I had the last time I cared about these issues. Not sure if that’s progress, or apathy, or what.
Here’s that link again TOT. To make this resurrection a little more interesting, I’m posting my results with a request, nay, command, that you all do the same. (Non-Orthodox FS fans might find it interesting to read the test Q&A, even if you probably won’t find your position listed there.)
Left Wing Modern Orthodox: 51%
Right Wing Modern Orthodox: 71%
Left Wing Yeshivish/Chareidi: 56%
Right Wing Yeshivish/Chareidi: 13%
The Orthodoxy Test
says that I’m Right Wing Modern O.
I’m not RWMO, but I think that’s just an aggregate of the four percentage categories. They don’t have Burnt-out Yeshivish.
