Which of the seven deadly sins is going to send you to hell?

WARNING – this blog post is a complete waste of time. Definitely read it if you are stuck at work on a boring Monday morning.

If procrastination were a sin, I’d be buggered quite frankly. I have just spent the last half an hour thinking about doing a spot of work, but actually doing online personality tests. I know it’s a Sunday evening, but I do have a bit of ground to make up from last week…


I probably need to get a proper job. Slacking off really doesn’t give you the same satisfaction when you work for yourself.

Now I know how much you all liked doing the test to see if you had adult ADHD, so I thought you might like to do another one. This one is slightly less serious. It tells you which of the seven deadly sins is going to be the one that sends you to hell.

In the name of research (obviously) I took the test and here are my results:

Greed: Medium
Gluttony: Medium
Wrath: Medium
Sloth: Very High
Envy: Very Low
Lust: Very High
Pride: High

A lazy slut eh? That can’t be right… Suspecting a flaw in the test, I found another that promised to tell me which deadly sin I was. Apparently lust. Right.

Still, to be honest, I’ve always been a bit dubious about just how sinful lust is. Adam and Eve wouldn’t have got very far without it after all. If they were real. I can see that sloth might hold me back perhaps in the career stakes, but lust – well, it’s natural isn’t it? Like butter. And we all know food with lots of butter in is wholesome and good for you. (As you can see, I scored pretty well in greed too).

But while greed is probably only going to lead to debt and obesity, lust is more of a ‘must have’ sin surely?

So go on, take the Seven Deadly Sins quiz and let me know which is going to be the sin that sends you to hell…

    Oh dear – looks like the lust and the sloth are gonna get me too! Oh well, at least I am not a glutton or at all envious. And as if to prove the sloth point, when I was taking the test I should have been trying to finish the essay I want to you proof read… x

      And that is why we are friends :-)

      I will look at your essay today. If I’m not too lazy obviously.

    I only got medium for envy, gluttony and greed. I think my downfall is that I really want a jacuzzi and this leaches into every area of my life…

    I am very low for lust! Which can’t really be right…

    • 10 January, 2011 / 11:05 am

      You scored low for lust??? The test must be wrong. Unless you went off the scale and back to zero?

  3. 9 January, 2011 / 8:05 pm

    Oh I am slothful alright. Didn’t register much on the others. Perhaps that shows the sin of pride in not answering honestly. Or I am hideously dull.

    • 10 January, 2011 / 11:06 am

      It’s interesting that everyone is thinking that scoring low on things makes them dull! Why does Being a Good Person equal being boring?? I thought the idea was that sin was supposed to be a Bad Thing?

    I cannot take the quiz (no buggering broadband), but I’m likely to bury the needle on wrath/lust. Sloth, gluttony, none of the rest really tempt me. That makes me an angry slut.

    • 10 January, 2011 / 11:06 am

      Haha! An angry slut. The best kind.

  5. 9 January, 2011 / 8:25 pm

    Oh dear, I’m Really dull! Mostly mediums or lows and I will be done-in by greed

    • 10 January, 2011 / 11:07 am

      That’ll be all the cakes and money spent on fabric :-)

    Looks like its sloth for me too! :) Greed, gluttony, wrath, and envy all medium. The last two very low :)

    • 10 January, 2011 / 11:07 am

      You are obviously too lazy to bother with lust…

  7. 9 January, 2011 / 9:12 pm

    I’m a sloth apparently… and yeah, I’ll admit, I’m too lazy for my own good at times to be honest. I am attempting to change that though. 26 years of being a lazy sod when I can get away with it will be a hard habit to break I think! >_<

    • 10 January, 2011 / 11:14 am

      It IS a tough habit to break. But then to be honest, who wouldn’t stay in bed watching TV and eating biscuits if they could get away with it??

  8. 10 January, 2011 / 9:05 am

    Oh no, mine is pride!! I don’t think I’m proud! But maybe that’s a statement of pride…

    Next after that is wrath, which I think is much more likely, because I have to admit I have quite a temper sometimes, even though I mostly don’t let it out.

    How depressing though. I may have to go and look for a test to see what my best qualities are!

    • 10 January, 2011 / 11:10 am

      Really? I wouldn’t have said you were proud either. But then I would be expecting you to take the whole ‘going to hell’ thing rather more seriously than me!

      Yes, perhaps I need to balance this out with some sort of ‘Why You Are Generally A Lovely Person’ quiz.

  9. 10 January, 2011 / 9:46 am

    Greed, sloth and envy are my three deadliest sins. Only medium on those though. I’m very dull.

    • 10 January, 2011 / 11:12 am

      It doesn’t mean you’re dull, it means you get to spend eternity on a cloud playing a harp and eating sweets! (That IS what happens isn’t it?)

    Uh oh… That wasn’t the uplifting, confidence boost I would have liked on a Monday morning…

    Greed:Very High
     Lust:Very High

    • 10 January, 2011 / 11:08 am

      I expected nothing less from you of course. Except maybe a higher score on sloth…

    • 11 January, 2011 / 5:58 pm

      Course I don’t mind! Although I’m slightly suspicious of how you managed to have children with that lust score :-)

    I came out very low/low on everything until I realised I’d answered question 9 wrong. Turns out I’m a lazy slut too, who’d have thought…

    GREED: Medium
    LUST: High

    • 11 January, 2011 / 5:57 pm

      Who’d have thought indeed…

      I blame the parents.

  12. 10 January, 2011 / 9:46 pm

    Unsurprisingly I am a gluttonous sloth. My slatternly behaviour is much reported, I often try to hide it (usually by piling stuff in the boot of my car, oven or non-door side of the bed). Oh dear, I had such high hopes for 2011. I’ve decided to resign myself to the inevitable and raise a glass to your lazy sluttery. (@elsieanderton) x

    • 11 January, 2011 / 5:56 pm

      My car boot is also usually chock full of CDs, coats, dirty socks, books, general rubbish…
