I’m rather disappointed that my Zeus score is so low. I could throw lightning bolts and impregnate lovely mortal women! Give me a chance!

Pathetic, wimpy, jealous would-be god!!!!

Heh. I got the best picture (male) of the bunch.

a Cowboy
You scored 5 Honor, 4 Justice, 8 Adventure, and 6 Individuality!
Well pardner, the thing that drives you is a sense of adventure. You’re
willing to play by the rules, but only so long as you’ve got open
territory to cover and new frontiers to explore. You don’t need much
and you don’t ask much.Strap on your six gun and wear your Stetson proud.
I think you’ll do just fine

You’d think I’d notice more than one day in that I got the title of this post wrong. . . but no.
