You did not score a high prevalence of any one single variable, and your results don't fit into any of the other categories, so I'm going to have to give you the most basic and simple Doors song on the list. This is the very first track The Doors ever recorded, a goofy 1950s-style piano boogie of all things. Rudimentary, unprofessional, and naive ... a low quality recording of ear-grating amateur garage rock by a bunch of stoned kids, something that no self-respecting radio station would have ever played. And it's ABSOLUTELY FUCKING AWESOME!!! The Doors themselves liked it so much that they used it as part of their live epic "The Celebration of the Lizard" (the section called "A Little Game" is basically just a musically simplified version of Go Insane with the exact same lyrics). If you want to hear the completed original version, which is way cooler, check out The Doors Boxset. There has to be something in the world that's more awesome than amateur Garage Rock. I just can't think of what it could be.
If this score indicates anything about you, it suggests you are very stable and avoid excesses, which is the exact opposite of Jim Morrison's philosophy -- hence your lack of the four variables. Let's face it, Morrison was crazy. If he wasn't, do you think he could have given us all that awesome music? Don't get me wrong ... it's good to be in control of your life and to exercise moderation. But remember, even moderation is only good in moderation. The world itself often doesn't make sense, so approaching it from a purely logical position 100% of the time, with no variation whatsoever, is to invite disaster. You have to mix it up a little sometimes. Being crazy, to a certain point, makes a weird sort of sense. In certain circumstances it can even be a necessity. As Frank Zappa once said, "Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible."
This score is not meant to suggest that you're crazy. If anything, it suggests you could actually be a little too sane. "Go Insane" isn't my assessment ... it's my ADVICE. Take it with a grain of salt.
And whatever you choose to lace the salt with is entirely up to you. ;-)

MY SCORING SYSTEM ... OR A BRIEF EXPLANATION OF WHY ANY OF THIS SHOULD MAKE ANY SENSE WHATSOEVER
I based this test around four of the crucial elements underlying much of The Doors' music, and also what I perceive to be four distinct facets of Jim Morrison's personality. It's not a perfect system but I think there's a certain logic to it that we can apply here (if you have a better way of doing it, be my guest). These four variables are as follows ...
>>> The Shaman is a spiritual guru, the American Indian's "medicine man" who enters into a trance-like state and enacts a ritual to bring his audience to enlightenment. This is an essential quality of songs like "Break On Through To The Other Side" or any Doors song where mystic knowledge is sought after.
>>> The Reveller is a hedonist that alters his consciousness through physical ecstasy -- sex, alcohol, drugs, and so on -- seeking the Palace of Wisdom through the Road of Excess. This is an essential quality of songs like "Light My Fire" or any Doors song about passion and youthful exhuberance.
>>> The Exile is an outcast that has been alienated by his fellow man, an outsider condemned to a lonely and misunderstood existence. This is an essential quality of songs like "People Are Strange" or any Doors song dealing with alienation and rejection.
>>> The Nihilist is an existential cynic that sees Death as the only real Truth. He or she lives life for the moment and objects to laws, tradition, religion, or any other form of social control ... life is too short to worry about other people's rules. The Nihilist is the proverbial Rebel Without A Cause. This is an essential quality of songs like "When The Music's Over" or any Doors song based on discontent and fatalism.
Most Doors songs contain varying degrees of these four principles, although some songs are very strongly inclined towards one of the four. I didn't include every Doors song ever made in this test, but I did try to include most of their best songs, at least insofar as I could fit them into the framework of my crude scoring system. It's far from perfect, but I think it works in a weird sort of way. Hopefully Morrison isn't rolling over in his grave right now. I mean assuming he's actually in there to begin with.
THE END is the exception to the four variables ... you cannot get this song by scoring high or low in any of these variables. You can only score THE END if you look beyond the four variables and see the true essence of The Doors. There's more to The Doors than "the image" of The Doors ... it's not just about a sex symbol in leather pants tripping on acid and saying the word "fuck" over and over. Forget the hype, just listen to the music. It's some of the most unique and innovative and mind-opening music you will ever experience.
