Take the test

NerdTests.com User Test: The Orthodoxy  Test.

There is no choice for Chassidish, hence the "Yeshivish" score.

Thanks to Ober Dicta

HT
why the need to apologize for scoring a "right-wing Yeshivish"? aren't all frum Jews held to the same standards as far as core Torah values are concerned?

The specific questions are kinda stupid and the answers that I would have given were often not on the list offered. I am greatly disappointed in the test's creator.

I got:
Left Wing Modern Orthodox: 21%
Right Wing Modern Orthodox: 59%
Left Wing Yeshivish/Chareidi: 67%
Right Wing Yeshivish/Chareidi: 38%

This means you're: Huh?

I give up. What are you?

that adds up to 185 percent, is that possible?

Chabakuk Elisha: I think that your test score indicates that you are a Lubavitcher who goes to Uman ;)

ASJ - That must be it!

How would we define a Lubavitcher that goes to Uman?

an unsure Lubavitcher who thinks that maybe Breslov is the light?

a Breslover who loves company in his state of misery so he goes to Lubavitch to see how they handle it?

Anon,

None of the above.

Maybe the definition would be more like: A Lubavitcher chossid that has curiosity and interest in many things, and is secure in his own identity enough that he doesn’t feel threatened by other movements or ideas...
