Their result for The Philosophy Test ...

Rationalist

You scored a ### from -60 to 60.

The universe is, for all practical purposes, entirely in your mind. You hold ideas of things like horses and cups in your head, and things in the 'universe' coorespond to these ideas, or cause you to think of these ideas. An object to you is nothing but a random collection of ideas that it causes in you(such as the idea of shininess or meltability) and seems to be grouped into one 'thing'. You believe objects exist, but only truly as ideas. Descartes, who said "I think therefor I am" was a rationalist.
