Lucifer or Memnoc?

My hearty thanks to, um, whoever bought this to my attention. I'm very sorry, I forgot where the link came from.

You are The Devil

Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession

The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.

Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

What is particularly interesting about this is that this is the second test to call me the devil, after Which Johnny The Homicidal Maniac character are you? I feel that this is more than just a coincidence. Okay, okay, statistically speaking twice is meaningless, even when considering the range of other options available in each test. But it certainly says something about me, even if it just actually says something about the sort of people who design these quizes!
