You scored as Hedonism. 

Your life is guided by the principles of Hedonism: You believe that pleasure is a great, or the greatest, good; and you try to enjoy life’s pleasures as much as you can.

“Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die!”

I don't think it's talking about entire philosophies, but just aspects of philosophies. So, both GIC and I (at least according to the quiz author) lean towards existentialism and hedonism, but that doesn't mean that we have the same philosophy.

I have to say, having taken the quiz I'm suspicious of anyone who scores less than 50% on hedonism.  ;)

The questions were far too flexible.  Most questions had at least two divergent interpretations available depending on which word in the sentence a reader chose to emphasize.  The usual problems with amateur pollsters.  Still, it was fun.
