Linear Thinking

Your Score: Linear B

You scored

You are Linear B. Even those who can follow you think you're all Greek to them. Which, after all, is true - Linear B being the first known text for written Greek. To most people, you're incomprehensible. But what do you care? You're tough, hard, long-enduring and have greater nobility than most. Naturally, you don't admit to borrowing extensively from your brother Linear A.

  1. "You are Akkadian, a blend of the incomprehensible symbols of the Sumerians with the unwritable sounds of the early Semitic peoples. However, the writing just doesn't suit the words and doesn't represent everything needed, so you end up a schizoid mess. Invented in Babylon, you're probably to blame for that tower story. However, crazy as you are, you're much loved and appreciated, and remain actively in use by records keepers long after schools have switched to other languages."

  2. Linear B ultimately, but "You scored higher than 99% on Ideogramatic

    You scored higher than 99% on Syllablic

    You scored higher than 99% on Logogramic

    You scored higher than 99% on Alphabetic"

  3. I think the percentage values on those OkCupid quizzes are often kind of broken.

  4. Definitely can't trust the accuracy. According to your result, I should be Linear A. (I'm assuming that Satanic Brother from Hell counts as "your brother Linear A".) However, it told me I'm Phoenician. Mind you, it was right by saying I am "the one all languages bow down to."
