What's Your Alignment? Mine is Neutral Apathetic.

So,  I took this alignment test, which I believe to have been around for a few years now.  Interesting results. The link to take the quiz is at the bottom of my results.  It has me thinking about doing a series of posts analyzing alignment and what it "means."

Your result for The 1st Edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Alignment Calculator...

True Neutral (with slight tendencies toward another alignment)

1 chaos, -5 evil and 14 balance!

Your alignment is True Neutral and you should refer to the score write-up for True Neutral (in the list of "all possible test results" at the bottom of the page) to learn more. However, you also scored a little bit of another alignment, which you can also look up in the test results, once you determine which alignment it is.
...
This score is rare, but it does come up sometimes. My test is very accurate but it's not perfect. There are "blind spots" in between the alignments, where the scores are not high or low enough to push you one way or another. You scored a large percentage in True Neutral and a small percentage in another alignment. To determine this other alignment, check your chaos / evil scores above, and consult the following chart (keep in mind that a score might be positive or negative, so watch for the little minus signs) ...

The reason you didn't actually score the alignment in question is because you only TEND toward that alignment ... you agree with some aspects of that alignment, and disagree with other aspects of it. So while the alignment does apply to you (to some extent), it's more of a subconscious tendency than a conscious belief system. You might continue to drift toward the other alignment and eventually leave neutrality altogether (the subjective path) ... or you might have started as the other alignment and have become more neutral over time (the objective path). Either way, this score suggests being in transition -- you are either going toward or away from true neutrality. Such changes tend to be gradual and can take weeks, months, even years. But eventually you'll end up as one or the other. It's up to you to figure out which direction you're going in.  ...
