Ethical philosophy quiz

I've tried the Ethical Philosophy Selector Page, with the following results:

My top five ethical philosophers (according to a silly quiz):
1. John Stuart Mill (huh!)
2. Aristotle (yes!)
3. Aquinas (hmmm.)
4. Ayn Rand (yes!)
5. Epicureans :-).

Bottom five for me includes Kant and Nietzsche, and strangely William of Ockham.

How did you go? [Hat tip Philosophy et Cetera]

I'm beginning to think the quiz is put together by a John Stuart Mill enthusiast.

And I'm a little worried by those of you scoring Kant and Sartre so highly. ;^)

Kant and Sartre were a bit of a surprise, but there were about as many questions as philosophers so the results are going to be dodgy.
