Which Blog Best Describes Your Personality?

Our wisdom, in so far as it ought to be deemed true and solid Wisdom, consists almost entirely of two parts: the knowledge of God and of ourselves. 

John Calvin

That online quiz promising to reveal Which City You Should Actually Live In or Which Game of Thrones Character You Are promises to show you something about yourself, and I can only posit from the ubiquity of those quizzes that folks are hungry for some knowledge of themselves. Real hungry.

Calvin held that self-knowledge is one part of “true and solid ‘Wisdom,'” the other part being God-knowledge. But he believed those two kinds of knowledge to be “Connected together by many ties” and that it is not easy to determine “Which of the two precedes and gives birth to the other.”

So does knowing What Type of Shark You Are reveal something about God? Or is it the other way ’round?
