    You Scored as Necrophilous
    You are likely a "Necrophilous" character. Necrophiles do not take pleasure in lively things: sometimes they find joy in inflicting pain on other people and creatures. Many Necrophiles find themselves drawn to the military, and believe that violence is necessary. The necrophile finds little to love in life and finds subjective or nihilist philosophies very appealing.


    Necrophilous 65%
    Exploitative 60%

    Marketing 50%

    Receptive 50%

    You Scored as Exploitative You are probably the "Exploitative" character. The exploitative character manipulates others to get his way. These people love to lead, and sometimes disdain those that they feel are below them. Exploitative people are confident in their image and tend to support authority - as long as it works for them.

    I'm guessing I would be opposite

    You Scored as Marketing

    You are probably a "Marketing" character. The marketing character is marked by an extreme desire to fit norms created by family, society, and culture. They are fashionable, dynamic and willing to compromise smore than any of the other characters. They often find that morals impede on their lifestyle and goals and are often unprincipled. The marketing character will always look for a way to change himself before demanding social change.

    Marketing 80%
    Exploitative 60%
    Necrophilous 50%
    Receptive 30%
    Hoarding 20%
    Productive 20%

    And it loaded past first page for me, squark.

    And Erich as his wife both dabbled in 'treating' schizphenics via psychoanalysis, just like Freud, lungs. Psychology is hard.

    did you try the other one, Lungs? It's a bit better, although who knows what the words refer to exactly...

    You Scored as Hoarding
    You are likely a "Hoarding" character. Fromm describes this character as a cold, obsessive person who finds it hard to change. The hoarder finds it difficult to accept losses of any sort, and relies on a very orderly, static lifestyle. These people prefer conventional methods to creativity, and are often suspicious of others.

    This test is horrible IMHO

    You Scored as Productive
    You are a "Productive" character. This is the "man without a mask," the person who goes about life with little need for possessions, social status, or exterior authority. The productive person is able to reach out to others and love them without condition. To this person, morality is objective and all people are equals. Productive people know that their possessions are unimportant, and that life, love and freedom are underappreciated. Productive people are often the great humanist revolutionaries, whose ideas and actions inspire others. Their idealism is sometimes viewed as a vice.

    You are probably a "Receptive" individual. These people tend to expect things which they desire to come to them and rarely feel confidant in their own abilities. The receptive character is usually very quiet, and finds it hard to make his or her own decisions, relying on the input of others.

    You Scored as Receptive
    You are probably a "Receptive" individual. These people tend to expect things which they desire to come to them and rarely feel confidant in their own abilities. The receptive character is usually very quiet, and finds it hard to make his or her own decisions, relying on the input of others.

    ATH here you go


    You Scored as Necrophilous
    You are likely a "Necrophilous" character. Necrophiles do not take pleasure in lively things: sometimes they find joy in inflicting pain on other people and creatures. Many Necrophiles find themselves drawn to the military, and believe that violence is necessary. The necrophile finds little to love in life and finds subjective or nihilist philosophies very appealing.

    You Scored as Marketing
    You are probably a "Marketing" character. The marketing character is marked by an extreme desire to fit norms created by family, society, and culture. They are fashionable, dynamic and willing to compromise smore than any of the other characters. They often find that morals impede on their lifestyle and goals and are often unprincipled. The marketing character will always look for a way to change himself before demanding social change.

    Marketing 75%
    Exploitative 55%
    Receptive 50%
    Hoarding 45%
    Productive 30%
    Necrophilous 5%

    O.o hmm odd, I completely disagree with the result I got.

    The first link won't open for me. So, from second link:

    Fromm's Orientations Test Results

    RECEPTIVE = 39
    EXPLOITATIVE = 32
    HOARDING = 33
    MARKETING = 39
    PRODUCTIVE = 36

    Scores from 12 to 24 are low
    25 to 36 low medium
    37 to 48 high medium
    and 49 to 60 high.

    Please do not take your scores too seriously: the reliability and validity of this test are unknown!
    This is presented only to give you a better sense of Fromm's orientations.

    51% Receptive, 49% Marketing

    Receptive orientation: The receptive individual is characterized by a heavy lack of creativity. These people tend to expect things which they desire to come to them and rarely feel confidant in their own abilities. The receptive character is usually very quiet, and finds it hard to make his or her own decisions, relying on the input of others. Often, these people find themselves seeking a parental figure who may take care of them; they tend to be those children that never grew up.
    Families with an overbearing, controlling nature often produce people like this. Often the parents either make no attempt to teach their children how to mature, or the children are simply given everything they request without question. Poor, heavily controlled populations such as in feudal Europe can generate a lot of these people.


    Marketing orientation: The marketing orientation describes the mindset in which a man perpetally molds himself into society's image in order to fit the expected norms of society. He sees the world as a marketplace, where new symbolizes good and desirous, wheras old becomes ugly and useless to him. Fromm described this mindset as saying, "new is beautiful," as opposed to the historical mindset which has been one of keeping and maintaining possessions for later, commodity - oriented use: "old is beautiful."
    Marketing characters exhibit signs of extreme conformity and solve their problems as if they were simply manifestations of the market. These people look for mates as commodities to be scrutinized for positive traits which may have little to do with love, and create barriers between themselves and others defined by abstractions such as religiosity, monetary value and social status. Families which own or manage businesses or encourage conformity and a scholastic focus on the job market - that is, most families in industirialized nations today - tend to create marketing characters. This personality, Fromm said, only started to emerge with contemporary society and its focus on marketability.

    For Ath:

    You are likely a "Hoarding" character. Fromm describes this character as a cold, obsessive person who finds it hard to change. The hoarder finds it difficult to accept losses of any sort, and relies on a very orderly, static lifestyle. These people prefer conventional methods to creativity, and are often suspicious of others.

    Good enough, minus the orderly lifestyle and preference for conventional methods over creativity.

    You Scored as ProductiveYou are a "Productive" character. This is the "man without a mask," the person who goes about life with little need for possessions, social status, or exterior authority. The productive person is able to reach out to others and love them without condition. To this person, morality is objective and all people are equals. Productive people know that their possessions are unimportant, and that life, love and freedom are under-appreciated. Productive people are often the great humanist revolutionaries, whose ideas and actions inspire others. Their idealism is sometimes viewed as a vice.
