Which philosopher are you?

I just completed a quiz with questions "reflecting the dilemmas that have captured the attention of history’s most significant ethical philosophers"--and here's how I turned out:

1. St. Augustine (100%) for info
2. Kant (81%) for info
3. Aquinas (78%) for info
4. Ockham (75%) for info
5. John Stuart Mill (62%) for info
6. Spinoza (55%) for info
7. Jeremy Bentham (50%) for info
8. Prescriptivism (47%) for info
9. Plato (44%) for info
10. Jean-Paul Sartre (36%) for info
11. Cynics (35%) for info
12. Aristotle (34%) for info
13. Epicureans (34%) for info
14. Nel Noddings (34%) for info
15. Ayn Rand (28%) for info
16. David Hume (19%) for info
17. Stoics (19%) for info
18. Nietzsche (11%) for info
19. Thomas Hobbes (0%) for info

Try it yourself--and there's a nod to Claw of the Conciliator for the point.
