Call me Julius Caesar

I took a very thought-provoking survey called "Which Historical General are You?" I'm proud to say that I am Julius Causer. Should I be trying to figure out who my Brutus is?

By the way, I first saw this on Jason Jazemski's cool Xanga site.

Read on to see the breakdown and take the test for yourself.



Julius Caesar

You scored 50 Wisdom, 71 Tactics, 54 Guts, and 45 Ruthlessness!

Roman military and political leader. He was instrumental in the transformation of the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire. His conquest of Gallia Comata extended the Roman world all the way to the Atlantic Ocean, introducing Roman influence into what has become modern France, an accomplishment of which direct consequences are visible to this day. In 55 BC Caesar launched the first Roman invasion of Britain.
Caesar fought and won a civil war which left him undisputed master of the Roman world, and began extensive reforms of Roman society and government. He was proclaimed dictator for life, and heavily centralized the already faltering government of the weak Republic. Caesar's friend Marcus Brutus conspired with others to assassinate Caesar in hopes of saving the Republic. The dramatic assassination on the Ides of March was the catalyst for a second set of civil wars, which marked the end of the Roman Republic and the beginning of the Roman Empire under Caesar's grand-nephew and adopted son Octavian, later known as Caesar Augustus.
Caesar's military campaigns are known in detail from his own written Commentaries (Commentarii), and many details of his life are recorded by later historians such as Suetonius, Plutarch, and Cassius Dio.

I was McClellan or something like that... at least my tactics were good... he apparently was relieved from duty a couple times though

I was some dude named Marcus Brutus. . . "savior of the roman empire."

I'm George Washington.

I scored:

higher than 62% on Unorthodox

higher than 38% on Tactics

higher than 49% on Guts

higher than 4% on Ruthlessness

Looks like I'm a crazy, slightly illogical coward. But at least I'm nice.

My Brutus comment was a joke. Not sure how, but I turned out to be a hippy.

You scored 72 Wisdom, 50 Tactics, 54 Guts, and 32 Ruthlessness!
Maybe it was my 83% unorthodox that ruined me for warfare.

Posted by: Collin - band member on November 8, 2005 02:39 PM

i was a hippie!A Hippie
You scored 74 Wisdom, 60 Tactics, 59 Guts, and 28 Ruthlessness!

You know nothing about tactics or war. You are docile and cowardly and the mere thought of violence is enough to make you wet yourself. Hate to break it to you, but chances are very good that you're not General material.... not even BAD General material. Hell you're probably not even a productive member of society. Why are you even here? Don't you have a peace pipe to smoke, or a war to protest or something? So here's to you and to whatever naive country that lets you vote....
Leaders who share your beliefs include: Jaques Chirac and Gerard Schroeder
