I tried this test from Ryan's blog (awesome pictures of ur Phuket trip bro, especially the infinity pool!)
Half the fun of these tests are to see what kind of stuff they come up with - i enjoy doing these tests as you can already guess, though i always take whatever they say with a pinch of salt as I totally don't believe these tests have any real proven or even suspected relation to human psychology, but heck its fun to see what they come up with anyway. I was of course most particularly surprised with the results of this particular test though, more so than the previous test on what car i should drive.

You are The Devil

Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession

The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.

Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.

My first reaction was "WHAT THE F**K?"......
These tests often have a few questions that you have more than one possible answer, so i went back to try the alternative answers, and i got the same result. This got me really irritated, i'm reasonably cool with people calling me satanic and all, especially an online quiz that i have absolutely no real reason to believe anyway, but calling me a slave? WTF?
The next fun thing to do for these online tests is to keep trying out the various combinations of answers to see what results we can get, so that you figure out the rationale behind the questions as well as the significance of the answers affecting the outcome of the quiz. I put it upon myself to try and figure this out, and i tried a few variations of the answers that I would've given because there were quite a few questions where a few of the answers were ones I would've picked anyway, but since you can only choose one answer for each question, there were a few permutations of possible answers, and after a couple of times being dealt the Devil card, i finally got this hand.

You are The Wheel of Fortune

Good fortune and happiness but sometimes a species of
intoxication with success

The Wheel of Fortune is all about big things, luck, change, fortune. Almost always good fortune. You are lucky in all things that you do and happy with the things that come to you. Be careful that success does not go to your head however. Sometimes luck can change.

I'm still trying to figure out how the quiz comes to these conclusions though. Guess why these astrology and mysticism stuff have always been somewhat beyond me.
