What am I?

I am a stats guy. I was a mathematics major in my undergraduate studies. So, when people send me links to quizzes and stuff that tell me who I am supposed to be, I often take them. I like to look at results, percentages, etc. However, I usually always see bias in the questioning. The following are the results in the latest one I've taken. Please don't take the results as the final answer in any theology, for again, this quiz too was biased and had questions in which an answer didn't really make sense according to the possible answer scale. I find the categorical labeling interesting. Defining each of those categories can only be done by the writer(s) of the quiz. And just what exactly does it mean to say that I am 64% of something? But the quiz was interesting.

My results:
You scored as Emergent/Postmodern.

You are Emergent/Postmodern in your theology. You feel alienated from older forms of church, you don't think they connect to modern culture very well. No one knows the whole truth about God, and we have much to learn from each other, and so learning takes place in dialogue. Evangelism should take place in relationships rather than through crusades and altar-calls. People are interested in spirituality and want to ask questions, so the church should help them to do this.

82% Emergent/Postmodern
64% Classical Liberal
64% Charismatic/Pentecostal
64% Evangelical Holiness/Wesleyan
57% Neo orthodox
54% Roman Catholic
54% Modern Liberal
32% Reformed Evangelical
14% Fundamentalist

What are you?

Good thing we have to tell us who we are.
