What philosophical personality are you?

The philosophy of science can divide people into a rough spectrum of two opposing camps. On one side is Naive Scientific Realism. On the opposite side is a philosophy called Scientific Anti-realism. Various brands of philosophical persuasions will fit against each other on this spectrum to some degree.

Which personality type are you?

On weekdays, a Dewey eyed instrumentalist, but when I wander away from my desk my heart belongs to Paul Feyerabend.
