Confucianism

Education is one of the most important things in your life. You believe in order, but order without too much constraint. The best way to teach others and to keep order is to set good examples for them. Your family is very important to you, and most importantly, your relationships with your parents or children (if any). You always honor and respect them and always try to be good. You believe that people are good and humans can and will always improve. You are very smart and have a passion for learning and you learn very quickly. Although Daoism is completely different, at times you look towards the relaxation and comfort of nature. During the day you work very hard and at night you let yourself relax. You are very passionate about education, however, Legalists look down on education which is why you do not get a long with them. You do not agree with their belief that the people existed for the government, instead you belived that the government existed for the people. You do not get along with Legalists as well as you do with Daoists

Legalism

You are very strict most of the time and prefer being a leader over a follower. Education is not your top priority, but you think physical labor is more important. You use punishments and rewards as your way of teaching others. You are very clever but sometimes your ideas or arguments lack meaning but you are usually right. You follow the rules all the time and encourage others to follow it as well. You are pretty well off, in the upper class or middle class and you believe in a strong government. You have very different views from most people you meet. You have very controlling qualities and they might be afraid to approach you which is why you do not get along with them. You do not think education is important while both Confucians and Daoists believe it is important. You think that they break the rules too much and their service to the government is not enough. Their ways of organizing a society will not work with their techniques, only yours will.
