What's interesting about this is that I took a quiz like this a year ago, and Finnish Paganism was in the middle and Traditional Witchcraft at the bottom of the list. It is true that I'm leaning more toward traditional study these days, not recon, though.

There are way to few questions to categorize someones believes into even one of those many religions listed.

Definitely not to be taken too seriously, but it was fun to take and might help expose people to Pagan religions they had never thought about before.

Hmm, not so much.  I pretty much know what happened, though - some of the ones I said "disagree" or "no opinion", I'd have agreed with if they'd been phrased a bit differently (if yer gonna use Ravenwolf and Conway as examples when asking my opinion on modern sourcebooks, yer gonna get a different answer from me than if you'd used, say, Cunningham and the Farrars.  Or, just because I use incense in ritual doesn't mean I find crystals equally significant).  And so on.

Very, very simplistic/superficial definitions of the religions, so, yep, definitely "just for fun".  Not really any more so than the Beliefnet quiz in the other thread, though, so this serves as an answer to the many folks who, in that other thread, wished there was a quiz for pagan religions.

Betcha the Egyptian is low 'cos I'm home and family centred.

I'm not sure that's why.

I didn't put that I was family centered.  I do not have a partner or children of my own, and my biological family is in Ohio.  Family is important on my path, but it would be unfulfilling  to center my path around something that isn't very accessible. 

Maybe it has something to do with the complexity of the pantheon or the degree of personalness found in relationships with the Gods?  I put that I wanted high complexity and a pantheon that was receptive to me pouring my heart out in prayer.  Maybe the author doesn't believe the Egyptian Gods are like that.
