    I think that test as a measure of one's "Calvin" (versus "Kelvin") is inaccurate. It appears to be an "IFBX" version of Calvinism- focusing on the externals rather than upon doctrine.

    For what it's worth I scored 53%.

    I don't view myself as a Calvinist. I scored 39%.

    I'm more of a "Far Side" guy myself.

    The test focuses and silliness rather than doctrine. Demanding reasonable arguments does a characteristic of the reformed only nor is it true of all of them. Not all reformed folks are "digital thinkers". In fact many involved in the "conversation" are quite abstract. Reformed folks are not the only ones that think it is important to know what the Bible says how absurd. Reformed folks never spend money on luxurious things? Really Only reformed believe they should work harder?

    I thought I was a Calvinist, but I guess not. I scored only 39%.

    I scored 53%... primarily because I live my life in a lighter way than Calvinists do.... pretty stupid. I guess everyone "knows" that Calvinists are all dour and have no sense of humor (wishing again for a sarcasm symbol)

    I am 58% Calvinist. Maybe my arms and legs and butt cheeks. Who knows.

    86%

    And I'm not Reformed. The trick is take the extreme position. While this is an entertaining quiz it is also pretty ridiculous. You can change all the questions to Puritans and still have the same result most of the time.

    Not a serious quiz, just a seriously good waste of time...;)

    It said 83%, but then it didn't have anything to with doctrine, and could have applied to anyone, calvinist or not, I wouldn't take it as a good indicator.

    I scored 86%. This test was simply about character qualities, not doctrine. I probably would have scored less if the questions were doctrinal. John Calvin made well-reasoned and elloquent arguments for pedobaptism. He almost persuaded me, but not quite.
