Since I recorded the results, I can put them in here as well (click to enlarge).
As for a quick commentary, I found that some of the questions were lacking specifics, but tried to understand them according to my own framework. The result is probably quite representative, even though I have some consideration for materialism. The stoïcs and Descartes contributed a lot to my formation, before Jung and the like.
I'm a pretty hardcore rationalist/materialist I prefer the term determinist to describe my viewpoint tho, as "materialist" has a rather disparate double meaning.
Not sure why Freud and Hawking were put in the rationalist camp, from what I've read both had some rather unsubstantiated spiritual ideas. And honestly, Jung seems more rational than existential to me. I'd put both he and Freud in the Essentialist quadrant.

Blue dot is my husband in the image below. We are in opposite quadrants XD.
My results are largely consistent with what I already know about myself. I've always adored Campbell and romanticism while more recently grounding myself in the natural world as a point of focus for my spirituality. And here I am in the greater quadrant that includes the Romantics and the smaller square within it that includes nature worship <3 Pretty neat

I got 31 E, 29 S. I feel like the result could be a little overstated—I can see that balancing of all these dimensions (E, R, M, S) is quite necessary. To be honest some of these questions seemed like they could have been better. If I were going to describe my philosophy I could say that I’m a kind of animist, in that I believe the subjective experience of existing has parallels in all the cohesive systems and processes I can see in world around me. I also believe the ultimate nature of reality is at once more complex and more simple than humans can possibly comprehend, especially through explicit, intellectual/demarcated ways of knowing. So I guess the quadrant, at least, seems about right.
