Me Likes!

I took the MACH-IV (Test of Machiavellianism) at Salon.com The results:
The Machiavelli personality test has a range of 0-100

Your Machiavelli score is: 80

You are a high Mach, you endorse Machiavelli's opinions. High Machs constitute a distinct type: charming, confident and glib, but also arrogant, calculating and cynical, prone to manipulate and exploit.

Most people fall somewhere in the middle, but there's a significant minority at either extreme.

How'd you do?

41 -- apparently I am a "low Mach".

I guess it's because my personal philosophy is "Fool me once, don't expect any quarter next time."

I earned a 70, but I'm not charming -- how do you explain that?

Plus I agree with North dallas thirty.

Foolish test, I knew exactly what the answers should be -- but it was a pleasant enough few minutes, thanks.

I firmly believe that honesty is the best policy -- if one is only allowed one policy and that policy must be expressed by a single word. For those of us who'se policies run rather longer -- allowing for exceptions, shadings of meaning and the occasional addendum suggested by experience -- Machiavelli offers much to consider.

My score was 66, which seems about right to me.
