Hermeneutics Quiz


Online quizzes are usually worth about the paper they're written on (read that  carefully!).  They are about as accurate as the fluff quizzes you get in popular magazines. ("Which Jonas brother should be your boy?", "What is your TRUE eye color?", "Which scrapbook magazine are you?", "How Creative are you?"--these are all real quizzes I found at the top of the Google search)

But with that caveat, I found a little quiz "The Hermeneutics Quiz" kind of fun & interesting.  I have seen it referenced in several places and finally broke down and did it.  There is also an accompanying short article giving discussion and interpretation on the three basic Hermeneutical types. You can find that here.

For those of you who take the quiz (and care) I scored a 57, which means I am a moderate hermeneutically.  (It is a 1-99 scale and any score between 53-65 is "Moderate."  Now whether that is because I actually AM moderate, or because I slanted my answers toward moderate because that is how I WANTED to turn out...who knows?

A little mindless fun is a nice diversion.  (Those who would consider a "Hermeneutics Quiz" to be "mindless fun" are probably a fairly narrow demographic. 

If you take the quiz, let me know how you score.

This is not the one I was referring, to, but you could use this one:\

The Hermeneutics Quiz
Score 39

You scored between 20 and 52, meaning you're a conservative on The Hermeneutic Scale.

Hey, I didn't know what to expect, but here it is...

What do YOU think that it says about you...your strengths and weaknesses? Thanks for replying and sharing your score.
