They said I am 50% normal. How insulting

You Are 50% Normal <em>(Somewhat Normal)</em>
<center> </center> While some of your behavior is quite normal... Other things you do are downright strange You've got a little of your freak going on But you mostly keep your weirdness to yourself

I think the test is flawed. I am rated as "really normal".

If I were to design a test like this I would ask questions such as:

1. Would you rather have sex with an angel that looks like a devil or a pure evil that looks like an angel?

2. What appeals more to you, a circle or a triangle?

Not really sure it's a great test, but at least I'm not as normal as the rest so far.

What an insult, it says I'm 45% normal when I know I'm far less normal than that

This suck! The craziest thing I ever have done was to buy a car using a loan and let them stitch me with 15% interest.

Now I can say I am a normal person. No matter if just 40%.
Have a good evening guys. I am going to show it to my Mom.

You Are 5% Normal <em>(As Weird as They Come)</em>
<center> </center> Are you from outer space? Because you're hardly human. Where people go right, you go left. And you have little in common with anyone... Except other freaks of natures :-)

It seems that very few people

  • cannot roll their tongues
  • change their towel when they need to be changed
  • button their shirts bottom-to-top
  • stop wearing unstylish clothing
  • are punctual
  • reveal their real names
  • think that living together before marriage is a bad idea
  • stop spanking their kids
  • like apples
  • value life over weight
  • use public restrooms
  • do not speak a second language
  • prefer the color red
  • are not morning people
  • have trouble controlling their weight
  • like sex


  • I find it hard to believe that we live in a world of tongue rolling sex maniacs who are all morning people. I think, instead, that we live in world of flawed Internet surveys.

    You Are 0% Normal <em>(As Weird as They Come)</em>

    More importantly...it seems normal people don't prefer apples over bananas & have smoked pot!!! I'm happy being abnormal rather than smoking pot.

    Map, does this mean that you are average normal? Which would mean normal normal.

    You Are 80% Normal <em>(Abnormally Normal)</em>
    <center> </center> Your behavior and ideas are... well ... Very predictable and average Surprised? Thought you were freaky? You *are* freaky. Just freakishly normal!

    Real life I try to simulate normality pritty well. I took the test again and this is what I got for my reword.

    Max, 5%, that sounds right

    Gerald 80%? Anyone that prefers structured programming to OO cannot be normal. Just Kidding.
