It's an online quiz - you expect it to make sense? :lol:


Yes I totally agree with you! It just doesn't seem to add up percentage wise. Poorly made quiz there!

Oh, I didn't see the little blurb attached to the stats, or I would have posted it. Are all the "Carrot" ones the same? :?

Another Carrot type here.

You are Captain Carrot Ironfounderson of the City Watch in the greatest city on the Disc – Ankh-Morprok! A truly good natured, honest guy, who knows everyone, and is liked by all. Technically a dwarf, but only by adoption. You’d rather not be reminded that you are the true heir to the throne, but that does explain why people naturally follow your orders…

Just for fun, I did this test pretending I was Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, entering answers based on their words and public actions. Not scientific, by any means, but here are the findings.

MITT ROMNEY

Lord Havelock Vetinari 100%
Esmerelda (Granny) Weatherwax 88%
Greebo 56%
Death 50%
The Librarian 50%
Carrot Ironfounderson 44%
Commander Samuel Vimes 38%
Cohen The Barbarian 25%
Gytha (Nanny) Ogg 19%
Rincewind 13%

This would make sense, since Romney is a thoroughly pragmatic politician who has a big picture and rigid view of the world, always wants to be in control, expects others to do this bidding, and doesn't care all that much about what others think of him or whether his actions cause others pain.

BARACK OBAMA

Carrot Ironfounderson 100%
Death 69%
The Librarian 63%
Commander Samuel Vimes 63%
Lord Havelock Vetinari 63%
Gytha (Nanny) Ogg 56%
Cohen The Barbarian 44%
Greebo 38%
Esmerelda (Granny) Weatherwax 25%
Rincewind 19%

Obama is more of a 'consensus-driven' leader than a 'manipulative' Vetinari-style Tyrant. He is less sure of himself, is very concerned about what people think about him, and believe that power is something that must be given, rather than taken. He doesn't have a rigid view of the world, and is not always confident in his actions. His high "Death" rating signifies the his reliance on the power of words, rather than actions, to make his views known.

I AM NOT SURE IF I OUGHT TO BE WORRIED ABOUT THIS:

You Scored as Death
You are death! Reaper of souls! Riding your horse, Binky, with a scythe at hand. Always working, always busy… You sometimes try to socialize with the living, and ALWAYS SPEAK IN CAPITAL LETTERS.


However, I also had to do the tiebreaker. Looking at my other scores I would have ended up as Nanny Ogg if I had chosen "Very maternal" (which would have been a bit odd) over "Work sometimes gets you down".

Death
56%
Gytha (Nanny) Ogg
56%
Rincewind
50%
Carrot Ironfounderson
50%
Esmerelda (Granny) Weatherwax
38%
Commander Samuel Vimes
31%
Cohen The Barbarian
25%
The Librarian
25%
Lord Havelock Vetinari
25%
Greebo
13%

On reflection I should probably be more worried that I am doing online quizzes instead of working. :oops:

You Scored as Gytha (Nanny) Ogg
You are Nanny Ogg! A talented witch, able to make yourself at home wherever you are, and insist that Greebo is just a big softie. You enjoy drinking, a lot, and singing about a hedgehog. You have a huge family, and get your daughters-in-law to do most of the housework. You are kind and gentle, and help put people at ease.

Gytha (Nanny) Ogg 63%

To appease my manhood I am recalculating the tie-breaker (and I am not materialistic), and Vimes wins! :think:
