You are a Miskatonic University Professor!
You got 16 answers right!
You may be in the dark about what's really dark and evil, but you're not ignorant. You've got a library of information at your fingertips - including an uncut copy of the Necronomicon (if you don't value your sanity, of course). It seems that if something dark and scary is happening, somebody's going to ask you to look into it. If I were you, I'd find some junior member of the staff to do it for you. In the meantime, brush up on your forbidden knowledge and go for the post-graduate course!
Well, only if you're through with life.
