"You chose your way, I chose mine."
-- TUCO, The Good The Bad & The Ugly
With regards to Law and Chaos, you are Neutral
With regards to Good and Evil, you are Neutral
There are two ways to score True Neutral ...
#1 : By choosing the "neutral" answer at least two-thirds of the time, and therefore scoring a balance of 20 or greater.
#2 : By choosing an equal or almost equal number of lawful, chaotic, good, and evil answers, so that the opposites even out to roughly zero.
Your score indicates way #2 which is the more common way. Like many people nowadays, you seem to have very diverse opinions about the world, ranging from good to bad and from orderly to chaotic. Refer to the "Quick Scoring Guide" below -- the higher your balance score, the more moderate and balanced your answers were. A low balance score indicates you picked mostly conflicting answers, and they simply cancelled out. The lower your balance, the more conflicting your answers were, and thus the more erratic and unbalanced you are (a balance of 0 for the True Neutral score would indicate something like split personalities and is nearly impossible to get).
At any rate, you are True Neutral. This alignment is at the center of the chart. It is the fulcrum that holds everything else together. True Neutral sees all other alignments as equal components of the whole, with evil necessary for good, and chaos for order. True Neutral people are often called "selfish neutrals" because they mainly look out for Number One and are indifferent to their fellow man ... their motto is Survival Of The Fittest. To put it less cynically, a True Neutral reacts to the world objectively. What "should be" or "could be" doesn't matter. All that matters is what is. You tend to take things at face value. You don't judge people for their actions, you simply respond to people's actions in whatever way seems most sensible. You might break the law from time to time, but you realize that certain laws (ie : those prohibiting murder, rape, etc) are important and should not be broken. Likewise, you might take advantage of people when it suits you, but you are not entirely without principles. You could sell something for more than it's worth if someone were gullable enough to buy it, but you wouldn't scam a child out of his allowance or mug an old lady for her pension check. You are practical but you are not cruel, and you believe in fairness and moderation. You value Truth over wishful thinking and always try to see everyone as they really are, including yourself. And you generally pay people the respect (or disrespect) they deserve, whether it's never giving a sucker an even break or risking your life to protect your loved ones. Good or bad, right or wrong -- in the Big Picture, everything is relative.

balance of 06 to 10 : an uncertain and self-contradicting person
balance of 01 to 05 : an unbalanced person full of inner conflicts
balance of 0 : go back and actually TAKE the test, smartass
Examples of True Neutral
Animals, plants, minerals, metals, time, space, and the Universe.
Your Destination in the Afterlife : ?
Gygax never actually assigned an Afterlife to the True Neutral alignment. If you look at the chart for the Outer Planes (Heaven, Hell, Olympus, The Abyss, etc) you'll notice that the center of the planar chart, which corresponds to the central alignment of True Neutral, consists of the inner planes (including the world of the living) surrounded by the Astral Plane. And the Astral Plane is nothing more than a medium separating the Afterlife from the world of the living. It is a vast emptiness which souls pass through on their way to their final destination. While the Astral Plane is technically an outer plane, it's not the Afterlife, just a conduit to the Afterlife.
As the True Neutral alignment has no Afterlife destination, you have to wonder if True Neutral souls are simply reincarnated over and over. Remember, at the exact center of the planar chart is the Prime Material Plane, which is the world of the living. Maybe that's the point Gygax was trying to make. Maybe True Neutral beings, humans as well as animals, just keep coming back around again and again, a perpetual balance where life is neither created nor destroyed.
After all, life too is energy.
