If you lived back in Feudal Era Japan, how would you probably have died?
You are a Samurai, the noblest and loyal of all people. You are brave and never stand down from a fight. Your purpose in life is to protect the weak and the innocent, while bringing the guilty to justice. You take pride in your honor and demand respect from others, however your ego tends to make you haughty around others. You prefer to constantly travel, never being content in one place for any length of time. Your adventurous spirit leads you on many journeys.
You are a Lord, wealthy and well-to-do. You enjoy your luxuries and comfort and shy away from anything that might inconvenience you. Sometimes you appear selfish and haughty, but inside you are actually insecure and self conscious of what others think about you. You are ambitious for power and are very competitive. You live your life like it is a grand competition, for the grass is always greener on the other side and there will always be someone who could beat you to it.
You are a Farmer or Peasant, the most hardworking of all people. You are under-appreciated and often put down. You work hard day in and day out just to make ends meet. Your financial stability is determined by forces beyond your control, causing you to potentially be a hoarder or be stingy with what you have. However, when guests come under your roof, you do not hesitate to shower them with all the commodities you can afford. You are family oriented, putting your household above others and your friendships are long lasting. You tend to not be adventurous and stay close to home.
You are a priest, honest and kind. You live to serve others as karma dictates. The Golden Rule is your motto. While a deeply spiritual person, you are open minded to others' views and beliefs. You have a constant awareness of your surroundings and have an excellent memory. You enjoy reading, meditating, and being in nature. You enjoy studying and the quest for knowledge is what drives you. You are often seen as a loner and introvert, though you love people and are very kind to all that you meet. You tend to avoid the crazy loudness of a busy, bustling life.
Geisha or Yakuza
Geisha or Yakuza
You are a Geisha or Yakuza, proud and vain. You pride yourself on your appearance and your ambition is your focus. No goal is too high for you. Your determination and cunning will take you far, however sometimes it can hamper your ability to have relationships with others. You tend to not trust people and want to take control of things. You can be brutally honest or as deceitful as a snake - whichever you think brings you the most out of each situation. You enjoy the fine arts and take pleasure in enjoying luxuries that others lavish on you. You try not to work harder than is necessary, manual labor being your arch nemesis, though laziness is far from you. You'd rather spend your time climbing the corporate ladder through bribery, smooth talk, and other means.....than to achieve your goals through honest hard work.
You are a Merchant, the most common. You are a normal person and live your daily life in the most mundane of ways. You prefer routine and repetition rather than adventure and randomness. You work hard to achieve your goals and enjoy the fruits of your labor. You are business-minded, meaning you put others' needs before you own in order to achieve success financially and socially. You are an extrovert and have many friendships. People enjoy being around you and find you a trustworthy person. However, when trouble comes your way you tend to ignore it and hope it goes away. You'll help a friend in need, but are often apt to ignore the plight of a stranger. The woes of the world tend to not concern you, causing you to seem aloof and uncaring. But, if something happens on your turf and in your town or family, people can depend on you to be on the forefront trying to set things right again.
