William Wallace

Like William Wallace, chances are you have no problem charging a larger, better trained, better equipped, better armed and armored English army with a band of naked drunken Scotsmen. I'm not contesting that you have balls. It's your brain function I'm worried about.

Ulysses S. Grant

You scored 64 Wisdom, 58 Tactics, 73 Guts, and 46 Ruthlessness!

Like you, Grant went about the distasteful business of war realistically and grimly. His courage as a commander of forces and his powers of organization and administration made him the outstanding Northern general. Grant, though, had no problem throwing away lives on huge seiges of heavily defended positions. At times, Union casualties under Grant were over double that of the Confederacy. However, Grant was notably wise in supporting good commanders, especially Sheridan , William T. Sherman , and George H. Thomas. Made a full general in 1866, he was the first U.S. citizen to hold that rank.

(Somehow the result didn't suprise me.)

That was fun, if a bit silly.

I'd just like to say in rebuttal that a good plan now beats a perfect plan a day too late, and Scotland has the highest per capita of geniuses in the world. Carpe Dium!

Vercingetorix
74 Wisdom
54 Tactics
60 Guts
60 Ruthlessness

Leader of the Gauls, a chieftain of the Arverni. He was the leader of the great revolt against the Romans in 52 BC. Julius Caesar, upon hearing of the trouble, rushed to put it down. Vercingetorix was, however, an able leader and adopted the policy of retreating to heavy, natural fortifications and burning the Gallic towns to keep the Roman soldiers from living off the land. Caesar and his chief lieutenant Labienus lost in minor engagements, but when Vercingetorix shut himself up in Alesia and summoned all his Gallic allies to attack the besieging Romans, the true brilliance of Caesar appeared. He defeated the Gallic relieving force and took the fortress. Vercingetorix was captured and, after gracing Caesar's triumphal return to Rome, was put to death.

Got King Edward I

You scored 62 Wisdom, 77 Tactics, 46 Guts, and 70 Ruthlessness!
Or rather, King Edward the Longshanks if you've seen Braveheart. You, like Edward, are incredibly smart and shrewd, but you win at any costs.... William Wallace died at his hands after a fierce Scottish rebellion against his reign. Despite his reputation though, Longshanks had the best interests of his people at heart. But God help you if you got on his bad side.

I did retake this thing, trying to pick what I thought would be the most, er... well, I tried to be a tree-hugging peace freak.

This was the result... not at all pretty. Eek!

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




I'll be over here, chained to the dairy cow, smoking something really... mind-expanding. Hey... anyone got a flower for my hair? Peace... Razz

So is a higher number better, worse, or just more indicative of a trait? Would 84 be a B and 61 a D? What's that acrid smell coming from Aaron's post, and why am I so hungry? WTF?!

Just for posterity, I took the opposite tack and went for blood.

I think it may be more of a trait, though it may be like Left wing (0) or Right wing (100)... you're somewhere in there someplace along that continuum....
