Confucius was a champion of family loyalty, ancestor worship, and respect of elders by children. He was a very calm and relaxed person, and so are you! You are very 'zen' and easy-going, as well as extremely family-oriented.

Nietzsche was a German philosopher, cultural critic, and poet. He often displayed a fondness for irony and metaphor, and he's known for his rejection of objective truth and critique on religion and morality. You are like Nietzsche because you know that things are not black and white - there's a lot of gray area in life too! You don't sugar coat things either; you are often very frank and outspoken, a true realist.

Some of Galilei's nicknames are: 'father of modern physics' and 'father of science.' He is known for his contributions to astronomy and his heliocentric argument (i.e. that the Earth revolves around the sun and not the other way around). You are like Galilei because you have a curious mind. You are a dreamer, with your head always in the clouds and stars. This world is not big enough to contain the ideas and curiosities you have!

Socrates is famous for his contributions to the field of ethics. He was a very self-reflective and thoughtful person, asking tough questions that not only made others think but also ponder upon fundamental human conditions. He was a true philosopher, and so are you!
