Personality Test: Which Supreme Court Justice Are You?

Here’s the test.

Apparently, I am Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It was the fact that I enjoy dramas and am also a fan of the New York Yankees that decided it, it would appear.

  1. Franklin says:

    Kagan here.

    /which might as well be my new login, since it doesn’t remember that anymore

  2. PD Shaw says:

    Felix Frankfurter

    apparently because I don’t like any of the baseball teams listed.

  3. I’m stuck at the first box, because those arguments are all so lame that I can’t see myself making any of them.

  4. Todd says:

    Kagan. Apparently choosing “c” in the first box outted me as the liberal all my conservative friends insist I really am … then my ignorance about neck doilies, and the fact that my dad taught me to ride a bike when I was a kid quickly narrowed it down further. 🙂

  5. michael reynolds says:

    Chief Justice Roger Taney.

    Wait a minute. . .

  6. al-Ameda says:

    Elena Kagan, and that suits me fairly well.

  7. DanaLee says:

    I think this test is insulting.. first of all there is not one :conservative answer to the first question. There should be a ” I broke the rules and I am sorry”. And then to get to Scalia you must choose to make a “personal” comment about the person instead of debating the actuall facts of the case. Your attributes of conservatives are not at all what you have listed here.

  8. Ben says:

    I ended up as Breyer, because he’s apparently the only Red Sox fan on the bench. (although if Souter was still around they would have had to squeeze in another box to decide between them)

  9. JWH says:


  10. Tillman says:

    Clarence Thomas! Because as the high school history teacher, I would sit there and take it from that one obnoxious parent.

  11. Franklin says:


    first of all there is not one conservative answer to the first question. There should be a ” I broke the rules and I am sorry”.

    I was looking for that answer, too, but I probably wouldn’t conflate “conservative” with “honest”.
