Total score:

(-9 to 0 points): You're as goth as Pat Robertson, Bill O'Reilly or Tom DeLay. Sure, Jesus might love you…but telling everyone He does makes Him hate you.

(1 to 8 points): Welcome to Moderate America.

(9 to 10 points): You're what's called a Poseur Goth. Return the foundation to the Marshall Field's makeup department and stop trying to piss off your parents.

(11 to 14 points): You're a Functional Goth. Basically, you dig the scene, but hey, a guy's gotta work, so the makeup is only for after the closing whistle blows.

(15 to 19 points): Your boss thinks you're weird but do your job well so he looks the other way, while your parents think you worship Satan and might be gay. Congratulations, you've been ostracized by society.

(20 to 22 points): Oh my Goth! Check your pulse, Prince of Darkness -- we've got a winner.
