Chaotic Good. "A chaotic good character acts as his conscience directs him with little regard for what others expect of him. He makes his own way, but he's kind and benevolent. He believes in goodness and right but has little use for laws and regulations. He hates it when people try to intimidate others and tell them what to do. He follows his own moral compass, which, although good, may not agree with that of society."
Maybe I'm not that benevolent, but the definition kinda fits.

I tried it but on a certain question I thought of no way those answers could relate to the alignments as in ADnD, like question 8 "8. Do you become close to friends, or hold most people at a safe distance?" And after that I even thought of who made the test and why I should even do it if it's not relevant in my eyes and skipped. I think Ultima games (at least 4 I'm sure) had it A LOT BETTER with their style of trying to see where you're at and give you class though, not alignment (and not adnd and also Richard Garriot is insane but doesn;t matter).
Anyway, I voted as I always played my chars both CRPG and on the few parties years past of ADnD as always Chaotic Good Cleric. One certain time my best friend, out party's DM (he's now up in heaven ) even made an alignment shift- penalty for me as after I knocked some NPC unconsious, I smashed his head with a mace or morning star I was furious for the penalty but it was great times..
Hmmm I don't know about this, I thought I would be more chaotic neutral. But on the other hand it makes sense because I always keep promises. But I don't want to follow rules 1:1 when they are unfair or not making sense, hmmm.
Lawful Neutral- A lawful neutral character acts as law, tradition, or a personal code directs him. Order and organization are paramount to him. He may believe in personal order and live by a code or standard, or he may believe in order for all and favor a strong, organized government. Lawful neutral is the best alignment you can be because it means you are reliable and honorable without being a zealot. However, lawful neutral can be a dangerous alignment when it seeks to eliminate all freedom, choice, and diversity in society.
Law & Chaos: Law ----- XXXXXXXXX (9) Neutral - XXXXXXXXXX (10) Chaos --- XX (2)
Good & Evil: Good ---- XXXXXXXXXXXXX (13) Neutral - XXXXXXXXXXXXXX (14) Evil ---- (0)
Of course I still believe/strive/hope I am Chaotic Good and that it's the test's fault
Either way reminded me of a funny situation about maybe 15 years ago with our edit:university years ADnD party : there was an evil villain NPC whom we had got as a party unconscious at the end of the encounter, so , as a Chaotic Good Cleric I thought like "let's end with this scumbag!" and I smashed his skull with my Morning Star or Mace ! Well, apparently the DM(my best friend and long gone to the heavens above..) thought it was too much for a Cleric, so he penalized my alignment I *think* or something.. We obviously had a big real life quarrel about it after the end of the game Good times!!
p.s. Garvalf I was scrolling and noticed you had the same experience, expecting Chaotic Good and got a True Neutral! Interesting and I think maybe the test really needs some tweaking from whoever authored it..
crystallogic13: nahadoth , or anyone that knows, are the "monthly" Dungeon Synth releases you do on Facebook reposted anywhere else ? (reddit, could be here, anywhere?) .. (have missed a "window" of DS releases 15-20/3 and want to catch up-bandcamp stops about a month:(
