Wanna see how post modern you are?

here are a couple of surveys that might get your brain tickled
What social tribe do you belong to
http://3sc.environics.net/surveys/3sc/main/3sc.asp
this one will tell you who you might have some affinity with...

this next one is more about the whole po-mo thing (This one inlcudes Americans as well)

I would be really curious where you would fit

Me I am....

Connected Enthusiasts apparently is my tribe though I also show similarities to the Autonomous Rebels. I would say that Autonomous Rebels is probably a closer match to me though I see some of me in each.

The second survey places me in the Authenticity & Responsibility Quadrant.

if this helps you to know me ....
