the adhd thing isnt true either. sugar does not actually even make u hyper. some physcians may overdiagnose it but ask any individual that has it if the meds help adn theyll say yes. half of my gifted class has add or adhd. there the ones that take their meds. the kdis that have adhd and dont take their meds are noticably different from the ones that do.

waltos, the point of the sun question was to prove that u do need some sun but excessive sun exposure is wat causes cancer. that was about the only accurate question
this test was a load of bs. it seems the writer looked up every fake conspiracy, innaccuracy, adn urban legend he could. every "fact" that is negative towards government, doctors, and meat is in this test. apparently the writer is some sort of fool that believes everything on the internet. just a reminder, anyone can post anythingg they want. everyone has 3 legs. ha. i just siad that like a fact. so it is a fact. says so right here on the internet.
sht like that is wat that test was composed of.

This website is catering to the elitist, yuppy class of daily show watching, alternative news reading bozos, who think that they`re well-informed because they know who Condoleeza Rice is.

The propaganda they use is insane. I can`t help but think that someone set this site up to expose some REAL gullibility. If it`s alternative, it`s true? Bullpoo.

(As a side note, I got a 76, and the test did label me as a "free thinker." A lot of the statements were obviously false (or true, but most seemed to have false as the "right" answer), but not necessarily for the reasons that they think.)

Even their statements that were true were followed up by paranoia that is so ridiculous that it is laughable, such as "The myth that sunlight is bad for you is promoted primarily by the sunscreen industry and its professional allies (dermatologists)." What they said before that was true ("Exposure to the sun actually prevents breast cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer and a long list of other diseases, including osteoporosis and depression. Exposure to sunlight results in the creation of vitamin D in your skin. It is this vitamin D that controls the growth of cancer tumors and enables the absorption of essential minerals like calcium.") but the last part was just ridiculous.

Obscenely biased.

Their statements about ADHD were particularly ridiculous. Not only were they biased, but they were completely false.

And most of their answers showed them to be extremely paranoid individuals. Just because I`m not paranoid and I don`t jump on every conspiracy theory that some nut thinks up, does not mean I`m gullible.

yasmus, adhd is a real disease, but it is the current "fad diagnosis." a lot of times people diagnose kids with it much too quickly. a lot of times they don`t know what it is, so they just call it adhd or add. im not saying that u don`t have it, or that it doesn`t happen. im just saying it`s overdiagnosed.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a genuine brain chemistry disorder that must be treated with drugs to help children.
FALSE.
This so-called disease is entirely fictitious and has no measurable physiological basis whatsoever. Hyperactivity in children is actually caused primarily by poor nutritional habits (consumption of refined sugars and food coloring) and can be easily corrected in less than two weeks by taking children off all refined carbohydrates and food additives. The ADHD "disease" was invented to sell drugs and boost the power of the highly corrupt psychiatric community, which increasingly "discovers" fictitious diseases and treats them with mind-altering narcotics.
THIS IS NOT TRUE!!!
ADHD IS REAL!!!
I HAVE IT AND KNOW OTHER PPL WITH IT!!!
I do believe that the drugs that they other for it do not work and are in fact harmful but ADHD not being real, How dare they say that!!! It is!! Do not believe this ppl!

Sheeple
Your score indicates you are relatively easy to manipulate and don`t know much about how the real world operates (even though you think you do). But you`re in good company: a full 30% of the people in the U.S. are also sheeple. You tend to think life is unfair and doesn`t give you an opportunity to shine as an individual, yet you consistently follow the crowd and do what they do. During the dot-com boom, if you were over the age of 25, you were probably invested in technology stocks (and lost a wad of money doing it, too). You believe doctors, drug company ads, and the FDA. You think authority figures should be listened to and believed. Interestingly, you tend to be happier than most people, but that`s largely because ignorance is bliss.
If you were in The Matrix, you would probably take the blue pill. In real life, you remain plugged in to a propaganda machine that shapes your reality, even while you think you`re in control.

The true gullibility test is in the test answers. When you believe almost anything on that page is when you are truly gullible. For guys running this test, they sure do seem to be more gullible than others; especailly when they find a site that likes to rant about `government lies`. It`s no new news that the government lies, but it`s no reason to make stuff up like this and so easily believe what they found on the internet.

I scored a 78. Gee, I should buy all the books and products they are endorsing so I can learn not to be gullible.

If I hadn`t just taken a HUGE test over financial markets I probably wouldn`t have laughed so hard at the Federal Reserve questions and the inflation question. The Federal Reserve is not some private club that screws with our money supply. Congress writes and can change the legislation that structures the Fed. If the Fed policy makers had to answer to politicians all the time they would have them screwing with the money supply. Interest rates would be out of control.

And the "sunscreen industry"??? Like there are a group of middle-aged men sitting around at a table scheming on how they can screw us out of our 8 bucks a bottle.

Ok the government is big, unorganized, and I really don`t think they are smart enough to pull off some of these conspiracy theories I hear of. If they were, the other political party would catch wind of it eventually.

I got an 82-top 5%. Free thinker.The description knew everything about me, except about me not following a religion because I am a very religous Christian. One of the biggest lies in that american history thing is the Civil War. The school books say that it was on slavery but it wasn`t. Slavery wasn`t even an issue untill near the end of the Civil War. It was about state rights and economical growth. Lincoln thought that
slavery was wrong but that all blacks didn`t deserve to be in America ans should be shipped to other countries. Think about it, back then white people didn`t even consider black people human. They considered them as animals. So why would people risk their lives for what they thought were animals. If you want to talk to me about this or talk about anything I would be more than happy to have a conversation with you. My AIM is seventhstreetkid. Great quiz by the way. I voted 4.

The milk conspiracy is false. As a dietician, I know the facts behind this. The way your body works, when most people get cravings for sweet things, it is because their body is trying to communicate that the blood sugar is low and needs food. So, instead of eating sugary stuff or overeating in general, substituting a glass of chocolate milk is far better and will stay with you longer than a candy bar or cake. Also, if it is lowfat or fat free, you save in calorie and fat intake. The site is biased to someone`s personal opinions and not based on fact.

Free Thinker
Welcome to the top 5%. You`re a true free thinker and a person who is well informed about the reality in which you live. Although you may have been easily manipulated earlier in life, you eventually gained lucidity and developed a healthy sense of skepticism that you now automatically apply to your observations and experiences. You are endlessly curious about human behavior and the nature of the universe, and you have one or more lifestyle habits that most people would consider odd or unusual. You are not only of very high intelligence, you are also extremely creative in one or more areas (music, art, software development, inventing, etc.)
If you were in The Matrix, you would have taken the red pill, completed the combat training, and started fighting (and beating) agents from day one.

The one about cattle being food chicken poop. WRONG! My family is in the meat business. We would be shut down by the Health Dept. for less than that...much less.

Dairy does help you lose weight if you get the right kind and don`t take into much of it. The food pyramid is correct.

I`d say they were correct on about 4 or 5 things. But most of it is vegan/back to nature propoganda.

A lot of these are just conspiracy theories. The problem with many of these so called "facts" is that they`re trying to prove negatives. That`s logically impossible.

Feeding cattle animal poop and etc. etc. may sound cruel to you, but they would probably eat it in the field anyways. And that is one of the few things they had correct in their "answers"... it does help to replenish nitrogen in the cattle, biologically speaking. There are numerous species that do it.

^^ actually this one is very true. History tends to be dictated by those who have power to dictate it. Look at Japan for example. They, to this day, make little or no mention of their occupation and holocaust on China and Korea in the mid 1900`s. Don`t think the US is any different.

There is a lot of bias and "loose interpretation" in this study. A lot of the questions are technically true, but ignore factors that make them much less sensational than they are presented here, or add in superfluous information that doesn`t mean anything as if it were evidence.

To Hellraising: The answer to your question is Yes and even worse. If you see this note and have the guts to learn more, then try checking out the book called FAST FOOD NATION the next time you visit a bookstore or library.

If you`re strong enough to read then you can learn. Most people (even young people it`s a shame) don`t really want to learn though, because it`s horrifying and angering, and sometimes it IS work, and because our elders really haven`t bothered to teach us good coping or even good living skills generally speaking.

I don`t post a lot on here even though I`ve been with the site for some years...because I`m ashamed of so much that I`ve seen and experienced.

It seems that the “free thinker” classification is earned by being incredibly critical and skeptical about the world around you. I can see why I got it since I don’t usually don’t trust what I’m told until I can find enough confirmation. It’s why I’m an atheist and I refuse to choose a political party to affiliate myself as on a census form or anything else since I don`t fully trust any party. It’s also what lead me to be an atheist. As far as I’m concerned, everyone is full of s**t, they all want you to believe what they do, and I’m caught in the middle listening to all of it. Not that I’m not guilty of the same thing.

"U.S. cancer industry simply doesn`t want anyone to know cures exist because it profits from the management of cancer (i.e. dependence on drugs, chemo, radiation, etc.)."

Haha. There are so many retarded conspirist theories on these test answers, I can barely manage all of them in this simple excerpt.

Let me address this statement:

1. There is no such thing as a "cancer industry". If anything, the U.S.government LOSES money on research grants.

2. There is no cure for cancer. I do not care what you say, but there is no way of completely stopping cancer from ever happening, or completely stopping it in a cancer patient. There are ways to help overcome it, but there will always be a chance that there will be other malignant cells treatments missed.

3. What`s up with this "the government doesn`t want you to know!" stuff. It`s all conspiracy, and no proof. Though there are links, I would like to see science instead of mere rants.
