What is Your Style?

For John, BLUFAnd, John, who are you?  Nothing to see here; just move along.

A friend of mine, who lives down in the Newport area of Rhode Island, sent along the URL to another pop-personality test.  This is "What Epistemology are you?". 
Result:  You are Jürgen Habermas!

Author of The Logic of the Social Sciences, you recognize that the primary activity of human beings is to interpret the meaning of things in the world around them.  As human beings themselves, researchers also interpret meanings and cannot therefore keep their own perspective separate from their research.  Since there is no absolute truth, research must instead use reason and argument to arrive at the best interpretation.  Go use your hermeneutics to conquer the world!

Well, I do believe in absolute truth, but only in the sense that there is a God and because of that there is absolute truth.

  Exactly, but fortunately the dictionary helped out with "the theory of knowledge, esp. with regard to its methods, validity, and scope.  Epistemology is the investigation of what distinguishes justified belief from opinion."
