I've guessed my through & got 13/16 (80%). Pretty good for someone who has never traveled past Maine.

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."

That was the one I had to guess on. I happened to get it right... which I guess means I got 90% but knew 80% ;)

A miserly 70% :(

Mostly educated guesses, some of which came off.

I'd like to try a more Eurocentric test...

80%, wow! Considering that I'm European and was wildly guessing in some cases - mostly correct - I'm quite astonished!

14 out 16. Not bad. However, if you selected the default answer for each question (i.e. the first choice already highlighted) you would gotten 8 out 16.
