Ok ok, this is from roleplay, but i consider identifying you this way is a funny thing to do to describe yourself :)


What is alignment?

The alignment of a character reflects how they fundamentally feel about good and evil, law and chaos.

Chaotic Good
A chaotic good character is often considered a "rebel" whose conscience leads him where it will with little regard for the expectations of others. A character of this alignment would make his own way in the world but still stop to help those in need believing in goodness but not in the strictness of laws and rules. A free-spirit but good-hearted type, a chaotic good character live life by their own moral compass with goodness as their true north but would argue against a person trying to force others to their will.

Neutral Good
A neutral good character is often considered a "benefactor" who loves to help others but does not feel she "owes" them. Neutral good is often described as "true good" as helping others often becomes their mission.

Lawful Good
A lawful good characters is often called the "crusader," combining a commitment against evil with a discipline to seek it out and destroy it where it is found. A character with this alignment is honest, trustworthy, aids the down-trodden, and fights against injustice. Guilt cannot go unpunished for a lawful good alignment combines as desire to do good with compassion and honor. Note that a lawful good alignment also can be very rigid in the way they see dishonor or evil and not bend when it comes to "looking past" such actions in those they meet or adventure with.

Chaotic Neutral
A chaotic neutral character is a "free-spirit" who follows their own whims. Their actions in one instance may not be the same in a similar circumstance a short time later. A character of this alignment is focus on himself first and foremost, valuing their own freedoms over defending those of another. Authority, traditions and restrictions are among his least favorite things.

Neutral (also known as True Neutral)
A neutral character is one that is considered "undecided" and does what, to them, seems like a good idea. A character of this alignment has no strong feelings toward good, evil, law or chaos, but this comes more from a lack of conviction or bias than a true neutrality. A truly neutral character would lean toward good only in that living in a city of "good" folks would benefit her more than living amongst "evil" ones.

Lawful Neutral (also known as True Lawful)
A lawful neutral character is often considered a "judge" who acts as laws, traditions, or personal code of conduct direct them. Living a life of order and organization are core to this character. The "law" he lives by could come from a number of sources from the religion he is part of, the government of the town he lives in or is from, or even their own personal code. The benefit of this alignment is that you can be lawful, reliable and honorable without being a zealot.

Chaotic Evil
A chaotic evil is often considered a "destroyer" for destruction is the result of his hatred and greed. As a character of this alignment you would be hot-tempered, vicious and unpredictable committed to what he can gain through is ruthless, brutal ways. A chaotic evil character is more likely to join a hapless rabble than a warband for organization is not important - destruction and mayhem is. A character of this type would be more likely to over-throw his leader rather than follow him unless his leader was more brutal and stronger thus forcing you to their will. Chaotic evil is steadfast against beauty, life, and the order on which the nature of both thrive.

Neutral Evil (also known as True Evil)
A neutral evil character is often considered a "malefactor" who does whatever they can get away with. Without the guidance of rules or the vagueness chaos can bring, a neutral evil alignment means you are out for yourself, no qualms about it. You kill if you need to, want to or heck, just to get paid but feel nothing for your victim. As a neutral evil you will destroy what gets in the way of your intended target or purpose. Neutral evil could be considered the most dangerous alignment because it represents evil without honor or guidance of law or chaos.

Lawful Evil
A lawful evil character is often considered a "dominator" and lives by his own code of conduct which is the only limit to his evil. With the lawful side to his alignment it means that he cares for tradition, loyalty and order, may rule or serve yet he cares not for freedom, dignity or life. He does play by the rules but compassion and mercy are not within his vocabulary. He does not like to break laws or promise because he depends on the order of things to protect himself from the high morals of others yet condemns them based on anything from religion to race but not by their actions. As a lawful evil you may have certain "rules" you live by such as having someone else do the killing but you give the order or you can be the one in power and subjugation the people you rule over by the rules you set. A character of lawful evil alignment is evil with a methodical, intentional and often very successful outcome.


Lawful evil would describe me best :D

Chaotic Neutral
A chaotic neutral character is a "free-spirit" who follows their own whims. Their actions in one instance may not be the same in a similar circumstance a short time later.1 A character of this alignment is focus on himself first and foremost, valuing their own freedoms over defending those of another. Authority, traditions and restrictions are among his least favorite things.2

1 Typical of me.

2 This bit however is a bit at odds (not completely but somewhat). I feel pulled in two different directions. I am attracted to traditions, authority and restrictions and yet I want to transcend the concept and they're not exactly my 'least favorite things'.

True Neutral probably, but I could shift in any other direction with the exception of the lawfuls depending on mood and circumstance.

This is making me want to do a Magic: The Gathering "What Magic Color are You?" silly thread in response to this :-P (I'd be green, heh).

EDIT: I just realized this was in Psychology... Why?

What about the option for "Kike a Like"?

The Kike-a-Like alignment means that you have a penchant for encouraging White women to breed with Orcs. You are a rogue who is likely to discourage the other members of your party from donating treasure to Aryan warriors like Lord Glenn Miller. Ever so crafty, you are capable of forcing even the staunchest Paladins to testify against their comrades before the King's Bench, all to facilitate the Jewish conquest of Middle Earth.

Starr posted a similar thread here (http://www.thephora.net/forum/showthread.php?t=38924) with an online test which I scored "lawful good" on. Both threads' descriptions label that alignment the "crusader", but I don't really feel like a crusader, though. I suspect I am a marginal, or lukewarm, lawful good somewhat mitigated by a true neutral alignment.
