a little east of reality

wow, not burning in hell after all

This was a surprising result. I was honest in my answers and quite expecting to be about as damned as anyone else, but lo and behold, I'm merely being sent to Purgatory, with a promise of Heaven beyond. Whew!

Bit disturbing, though, scoring so high on level 8. Fraudulent? Malicious? Panderer? That's all a bit harsh. I'll freely admit to my other high score - I can be a bit wrathful and gloomy. But the level 8 stuff was a surprise. I saw myself more as slinking in somewhere between levels 2 & 3. But there you go.

The Dante's Inferno Test has sent you to Purgatory!

You are one of the lucky ones! Because of your virtue and beliefs, you have escaped eternal damnation and made it to Purgatory, a place where the dew of repentance washes off the stain of sin and girds the spirit with humility. Through contrition, confession, and satisfaction by works of righteousness, you must make your way up the mountain. As the sins are cleansed from your soul, you will be illuminated by the Sun of Divine Grace, and you will join other souls, smiling and happy, upon the summit of this mountain. Before long you will know the joys of Paradise as you ascend to the ethereal realm of Heaven.

Here is how you matched up against all the levels:

Purgatory (Repenting Believers)Very High
Level 1 - Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers)Low
Level 2 (Lustful)Low
Level 3 (Gluttonous)Low
Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious)Very Low
Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy)High
Level 6 - The City of Dis (Heretics)Very Low
Level 7 (Violent)Low
Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers)High
Level 9 - Cocytus (Treacherous)Low
