Their result for Are You From Heaven or Hell? ...

The Balanced Center

You are Completely Neutral!

You are concerned with your own well-being and that of the group or organization which you may be part of. You have a decent moral compass that guides you, though you have little problem bending your own sense of right and wrong when it's necessary. You may behave in a good manner to those that you consider friends and allies, but will only act maliciously against those who have tried to injure you in some way. You may struggle passionately on behalf of yourself, your causes, or others, as well as feel compassion for those you barely know, and thusly do not wish ill on those you do not know, but may also tend not care when you hear of evil befalling them. You may tend to believe each thing exists as a part of the whole, one as a check or balance to the other, with life necessary for death, happiness for suffering, good for evil, order for chaos, and vice versa. Nothing must ever become predominant or out of balance. Within this naturalistic ethos, humankind serves a role also, just as all other creatures do. You are offended by those who are opinionated or bigoted. A "hell-fire and brimstone" priest is just as offensive as a genocidal racial supremacist in your eyes. You may not necessarily strive for philosophical balance. In fact, you may avoid philosophical considerations altogether. You may take up the cause of your nation, not because you necessarily feel obligated to do so, but because it just makes sense to support the group that protects your way of life. You might follow the laws of the land because your sense of honor directs you to do so, though you are just as likely to bend or break those you consider minor due to their inconvenience. Your ideal government is any social order that balances the needs of the state and the individual and allows people to pursue their own interests as long as they do not violate the rights of others. You want the benefits of the social order to be applied equally to all. Any form of justice that is fair and impartial is desirable. 

 

This combination of morality and ethics is the most common among people, since mere survival or maintaining a standard of living can demand high amounts of intellectual and emotional reserves. It is usually due to this drain that most people, although they may wish and feel they should do more to benefit the world-at-large, typically don't have the energy to invest in figuring out how to go about it within the conventions they desire to accomplish it. This is not to say they do not volunteer time to their causes, but rather take an equal measure of working on them in both healthy and inappropriate manners. For example, one day they're fielding questions about a new environmental program, letting the other side vent their grievances while maintaining a calm composure and willingness to compromise for the greater good, the next they may go on a death to all evil corporations tirade on public television just to vent. The Buddha stated the middle path is best, so if you wish to improve your moral standing, perhaps balancing your time so you're not as drained would be a good start. If you're just trying to live a life of philosophical balance, keep up the work you've been doing, it seems you're off to a real symmetrical start with this score. There is also the chance you may not have any real causes to champion, though those types do generally get different scores, so it may also be a sign you attempted to skew the data to get the result you wanted instead of being honest. If you truly don't care about moral and ethical philosophies, and you were as honest as possible with your answers, keep it up, you're doing quite the ambiguous job at it with this score. 

 

The fictional Character of Doctor Gregory House is a prime example of being Completely Neutral. He is a staunch misanthropic who boils down the human psyche into its coldest, most rational logic, with little regard for human emotions. He enjoys helping people, not because it's the right thing to do, but because each person and illness is a puzzle to figure out, and he enjoys the challenge. He usually abides by the law, medical ethics, and his own personal code, but has been known to violate any or all of these if the need should arise. He treats the doctors under him like social experiments, even calling one by her exam number, 13, instead of by her name, which is something the rest of the hospital typically does following his lead. Yet, the poking and prodding with his social experimentation is to make them better doctors when they strike it out on their own, so a dash of "Evil" is used for a more humane cause, so to speak. House is a prime example of how someone acts without regard to moral or ethical philosophy, while not consciously trying to balance it out.

 

Another example of being True Neutral is the ancient philosopher Socrates. He devoted himself only to what he regarded as the most important art or occupation: discussing philosophy. Despite claiming loyalty to his city, even serving in its military for a time, Socrates clashed with the current course of Athenian politics and society. He praised Sparta, archrival to Athens, directly and indirectly in various dialogues. Rather than upholding a status quo and accepting the development of immorality within his region, Socrates worked to undermine the collective notion of "might makes right" so common to Greece during this period. Socrates argued that moral excellence was more a matter of divine bequest than something that could be taught, that some men were just born to be "good" or "evil." No one desires evil; no one errs or does wrong willingly or knowingly, therefore he reasoned that some must be born without knowledge of right from wrong. This is in stark contrast to what follows the "moral theory" that most people are born with a sense of right and wrong, and that morality can be taught rehabilitatively. Socrates believed the best way for people to live was to focus on self-development rather than the pursuit of material wealth. He openly objected to the democracy  that ran Athens during his adult life. It was not only Athenian democracy: Socrates objected to any form of government that did not conform to his ideal of a perfect republic led by philosophers, and Athenian government was far from that. Socrates often said his wisdom was limited to an awareness of his own ignorance. He never actually claimed to be wise, only to understand the path a lover of wisdom must take in pursuing it. He spoke approvingly of the arts, and other forms of divine madness, such as drunkenness, eroticism, and dreaming. Socrates argues that the invisible, more spiritual, world is the most intelligible and that the visible world is the least knowable, and the most obscure. Wishing his followers to abide by the law, yet always to question or speak out against it, with a fine mix of moral and immoral traits, the man was imbued with many paradoxes in his nature, which levels him more closely to total Neutrality in his personality, seemingly trying to find and maintain a balance of all things.
