Congratulations! You are: a Medieval!
Medieval philosophy is probably more pessimistic than any other. One really gets the sense that medieval thinkers lived in a cold, dark, unreliable world, where pleasure was so hard to find that the desire for it became nearly uncontrollable. This is a world where the sinner is clearly divided from the saint
I tried to write the test in such a way that you didn’t have to be a religious person to get this result. The medieval way of looking at the world is not simply religious. It’s a serious, hierarchial, compulsive worldview, with a moral seriousness missing from some other eras. Medieval philosophers include some brilliant incisive minds, like that of Thomas Aquinas. What makes medieval philosophers unusual is the direction of their inquiries--they turned their gazes inward, to examine themselves, or upward, towards God, but hardly ever outward, towards the world around them.
Some medieval philosophers: Augustine, Anselm, Aquinas, Maimonides, Abelard, Erasmus
Some medieval artists: Dante, Chrétien de Troyes, Christine de Pisan, Rabelais, Chaucer, Bach
Typical medieval art forms: the morality play, war stories, contrapuntal music, the sermon, scatological humor, romantic poetry
