I’m Slightly More Hippie Now
(with comments)

Back in 2008, I took a scientifically valid Hippie Quiz.

I scored a 27 --  I was 27% Hippie.

Tonight I re-took the quiz. My result:

hippiescore

It's probably an insignificant change. But, if this trend continues and I add one percentage point every year, I'll be a full-blown hippie in 70 more years.

    It's probably those Farmers' Market gigs bumping up your score.

    The banjo probably drags your score down.

    23%

    I got 47% but that was largely due to being an acid casualty. I was too young to have been a hippie.
  5. By Brian. Comment posted 28-Jul-2011 @09:02pm:
    You are 34% hippie.

    You're in the middle, leaning towards the non-hippie side of things, but you're not afraid to try out some hippie philosophies. Good going! An open mind is all a person really needs to lead a happy life.

    Proudly 0%

    17%. I'm sure I could have scored less if they actually a few other options to select from in some of the questions.

    Being a person who does have long hair and a beard, I get accused of being a hippie fairly often. How wrong they are.

    You are 10% hippie.
     
    Ok, you conservative soul. Do you even believe in global warming? Loosen that necktie a little, and try some organic food. It actually does taste better. And go to a farmer's market--they're fun.


    I'll have you know I HATE neckties, understand the fact of global warming, and enjoy the occasional farmers' market. Organic is silly, though.

    Are you suggesting that his test might not be valid???

    35%.... I'm shocked....
  11. By Spokane Mary. Comment posted 28-Jul-2011 @10:28pm:
    57% hippie - sounds about right to me, but I had a hard time finding an appropriate answer on several of the questions - which is one of the reasons I'm not fond of multiple-choice polls.

    Still, it was interesting.
  12. By Spokane Mary. Comment posted 28-Jul-2011 @10:29pm:
    And I just realized what a delight it is to find the word spelled hippIE instead of hippY. Yes, yes, yes.

    23% - at my age?
    At least I'm not a rocker.
  14. By Joe. Comment posted 28-Jul-2011 @11:18pm:
    12% - but not conservative either
  15. By Geeza. Comment posted 29-Jul-2011 @02:24am:
    27%.

    As all the best people are on their first try.
  16. By Evil Klown. Comment posted 29-Jul-2011 @03:05am:
    Ha ha, I got the same score as wormpicker. I can't believe I'm higher than zero percent ... it was probably the recycling thing. I even picked "hippy punching" as my favorite pastime.

    Btw, I wear a tie now and then and I don't hate them. I don't believe global warming is caused by man. I go to farmer's markets all the time.
  17. By Miss Cellania. Comment posted 29-Jul-2011 @03:59am:
    61%. I'm not surprised. I feel 61%.
  18. By deciBelcat. Comment posted 29-Jul-2011 @05:14am:
    67% and proud of it.

    I was hoping I would get a higher score (no pun intended) but I live in a normal house and drive a car.

    Are you a hippie?

    I think 6% is about right.

    Question authority. That's all I'm saying. Peace out, brother.

    56%... I am fading!!!

    Organic is silly, though.

    Call it homegrown then. You actually get to see what the plant is absorbing. What a novel idea! Thus spake the hippie in me. ;).

    22%, not bad.
  24. By wok. Comment posted 29-Jul-2011 @10:19am:
    0% - but I never wear ties and LOVE Farmer's Markets.

    I believe that you've become more hippie due to the Evil Klown effect. That glaring display of self-absorption and disregard for other human beings prompts a counter-reaction in normal persons. It moves them to seek out peace, love, rear-engined vans and home grown smoking supplies.
  26. By Curtis. Comment posted 29-Jul-2011 @12:35pm:
    I've become more hippie than last time even though my hair is much shorter now.

    You are 56% hippie.

    You're near the middle of the spectrum, but you've got an open mind. Society needs more people like you.


    I feel more hippie. Certain days I smell more hippie. I started recreational mind alteration again this year after a couple decade hiatus - that tipped things - I also said I was polyamorous even though I'm not practicing, but I think, in the main, it's pleasurable to the human. I'd like three or four spouses, but I'm too old now.

    37%

    But I would consider myself more Beat than Hippie.

    Before they "know" him.

    More hippie, perhaps, but alas, not more hip.

    Psychedelics or just the occasional spliff?

    "I started recreational mind alteration again this year after a couple decade hiatus - that tipped things..."

    That explains your kinder, gentler self. Good thing, as entertaining as you were going through 'roid rage.
  33. By Curtis. Comment posted 29-Jul-2011 @02:19pm:
    The occasional.
  34. By Curtis. Comment posted 29-Jul-2011 @02:21pm:
    And Don, I'm still quite miffed.

    50%

    I've suppressed a lot of "druthers" over the years just to get along, keep my job, put my kids through school, etc.

    I'm thinking that when I retire next year I'm going to release my inner Minderbinder. I'd like to try mescaline again, the most enjoyable, subtle, dreamiest experience I've ever had. That was 41 years ago!
  36. By Curtis. Comment posted 29-Jul-2011 @02:54pm:
    Minderbinder and gdm IV, are you guys on G+?

    And duck, not going to go there?
  37. By Minderbinder. Comment posted 29-Jul-2011 @05:10pm:
    Not even Facebook Curtis.

    Some things are just too important to fool with ...

    I somehow got to 33%. Didn't think I'd get that big a score.

    16%...but then I was given this 60% incorrect evaluation:

    Most of the score made me proud.
