Their result for What Kind of Buddhist Are You Quiz? ...

The Bodhisattva

You are a devout Mahayanian

Based on your answers its clear you are of the Mahayana school, “The Greater Vehicle.” Through deep meditation you can realize the truly empty and baseless nature of self. You begin to see that all things are interconnected and interdependent on each other; since nothing exists alone, everything is void of existence. This concept of emptiness called “shunyata” is one of the major pillars in Mahayana philosophy. This school emphasizes the path of liberation is not only for oneself but for the mutual enlightenment of all beings. For this reason, Mahayanists see the Bodhisattva archetype as the most idyllic aspiration. Through following the 6 Paramitas (generosity, morality, patience, energy, meditation, and wisdom) one can become a Boddhisattva, leading all sentient beings to full realization of Buddha-nature.      The tendency of this school of Buddhism is to absolve oneself in emptiness and the experience of compassionate action. It is important to realize that we must acknowledge all parts of ourselves to gain full understanding of the nature of existence. Passion, Fear, Aggression, Hate, Pride, Greed are all powerful and disturbing human emotions but they have the ability to show us profound insights into our nature (or lack there of).
