Not So Gullible

The other day I was more keenly aware of my gullibility…quite funny!

However, in my search for an image to use for that post I came across this gullibility factor test from NewsTarget. So, I took it and it appears I am not as gullible in this area of life (health and nutrition)! In fact, it said and I quote, “Welcome to the top 5%. You’re a true free thinker and a person who is well informed about the reality in which you live. Although you may have been easily manipulated earlier in life, you eventually gained lucidity and developed a healthy sense of skepticism that you now automatically apply to your observations and experiences. You have cast off reality distortions taught to you by your parents, schooling, corporate advertising and government propaganda. You create your own beliefs based on what serves you best, without much regard for what the rest of the crowd is doing.”

To which, I would agree. However, it also said that, “If you were in The Matrix, you would have taken the red pill, completed the combat training, and started fighting (and beating) agents from day one.” To which, I disagree. I think that is my desire and my heart, but the fact that I am timid and insecure in my personality holds me back from truly fighting for what I know is true. In fact, I get so offended and hurt when people challenge my desire to be healthier or make fun of me. uugghh!

But that is aside from the point…check out the quiz...it really is quite informative. And let me know how your results turn out or if something really surprised you after taking it! Just click the gullible photo here:

  1. Learner
    As a Learner, you’re smart enough to know better, yet you’re still not fully informed about reality. Around 15% of the population are Learners. You have the critical thinking skills to be a truly free individual, but you haven’t exercised them enough yet. From time to time, you’re still manipulated by the powers that be, although you frequently learn from those mistakes and refuse to be exploited again. You buy things because they are practical, not because they’re cool.

    If you were in The Matrix, you would have taken the red pill, but you would still be in a state of mild disbelief about the nature of reality. You are essentially unplugged, but still untrained. With more knowledge, you could become a true free thinker.

    Your architects: You have always been an independent thinker. You rebelled against your parents, schoolteachers and always chose to hang out with smart friends who weren’t necessarily that popular to the “in” crowd. Increasingly, you shape your own world by deciding what actions to take based on your own internal drive rather than what society tells you is right.

    That’s me, except I hung out with the in crowd and wasn’t so much into learning in highschool.

  2. I got a 91% and was also labeled a Free Thinker. Great minds think alike, as they say, Jill! ;o)

  3. 88%. Not bad, but I knew the answers I got wrong, I just don’t want to tip off the authorities.
