    I tried to make the test come out Buddhism and it still gave me Jediism.

    I got modern paganism. Of the choices I would really expect Thelema, they didn't account for any esoteric LHP though.

    They're actually pretty similar to each other - Jediism makes heavy use of Eastern philosophies and in particular, Buddhism. I'm not sure what they would use as the distinguishing markers. Maybe if you demonstrate more technophilia they put you as Jediism. :shrug:

    It might be because I said magick is part of my religion, as Right Mindfulness, Right Concentration, and Right Effort of the Eightfold Path is also pretty much what is also behind magick, or at the very least, Upaya. :shrug:

    Took the magick out and tried to narrowly aim at Buddhism, and got Jainism. I relaxed the drug stance a bit, dropped the nonviolence bit, and got Buddhism.

    Agnosticism - well, could be expected and is not even wrong.

    I can only agree with the former comments, not very inclusive language - especially not inclusive enough for LHP-religions. While I tried to avoid it, I could have clicked "none applies" on pretty much all questions as I can expect the quiz maker's definitions of the terms in the questions - "soul", "good", "creed", "ritual", ... - to have not much to do with my religion's equivalent of these things.
    Or questions like "Do you believe in Monasticism? Monasticism is the belief that there should be a clergy, ministers, or people in general that devote their lives to spiritual work within the religion." Every single member of my religion is expected to be "clergy" - if you aren't your own priest you can just leave - but that is far from what the quiz maker had in mind.

    That's not even what monasticism is. It's asceticism, monks and nuns. Clergy are a separate thing. I don't know where they got that definition from.

    It appears that the quiz was deleted. I was going to take it as well but it's no longer there.
