Yeah that quiz seems badly designed...
They need to add a couple of more questions to distinguish better between EO and RC.
For example:
1. Do you agree that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and from the Son?
2. Do you believe in Purgatory?
3. Do you agree with playing instrumental music, such as organ music, during Church services?
Thanks for the replies and information.

"stanley123's" questions 1 & 2 would make the difference, I know this reply by "stanley123" was written seriously, and is a serious question, but question 1 made me laugh.

However, being in the GOAA, question "3" might not necessarily distinguish the Eastern Orthodox from Roman Catholics, not that I don't understand it to be a canonical matter.

I am not sure why question 1 would make you laugh except that an EO would phrase the question differently - say 1 (EO) Do you agree that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father alone and not from the Father and from the Son.
Anyway, here are a few more questions which could be asked to distinguish between EO and RC:
Do you agree, disagree or no opinion on the following:
4. The Roman Pope is the infallible head of the Church.
5. There is a clear distinction between venial and mortal sin.
6. In making the sign of the cross, the righthand touches the left shoulder first, and the right shoulder after that.
RC would agree with 4,5,6; EO disagree. The questions could be worded differently if you wanted to set it up so that EO would agree (and RC disagree). For example:
4.(EO) There is no one person who is the infallible head of the Church.
5.(EO) There is no clear distinction between venial and mortal sin.
6. (EO)  In making the sign of the cross, the righthand touches the right shoulder first, and the left shoulder after that.
EO would agree with 4(EO), 5(EO), 6(EO).

Dude, the sign of the cross is not a matter of Faith, it's a matter of Practice.
Besides, WRO and OO both do the sign of the cross from left to right.

Correct. It is just a question to be added to the others.
In Yugoslavia, when they wanted to see who was RC and who was EO, they would ask the boys to make the sign of the cross. That gave them their answer.

You're still forgetting that some canonical EO cross themselves from Left to Right.

Yes, "stanley123," "I believe...in the Holy Spirit...Who proceeds from the Father," directly.  I laughed because the question goes right to the RC's jugular, the "filioque," controversy which is the symbol of what divides us.

No suprise.

Many will be shocked that the bar was almost equal to my #1
  My #3 is: Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod    Selected books, bargains, etc.

I was baptized into this, but the parish I was in was more of the MO Synod mind (many went that route when the ELCA was formed and sent the parish a woman pastor. I was gone by then).
  My #5 is: International Church of Christ    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
Is this the Instrumental CC? I could see that.
  My #6 is: Episcopal/Anglican Church    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
Btw, the bar is about half way here.
  My #7 is: Mormonism    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
Eekh. Scary!

Here it drops down to about a tenth.

  My #21 is: Jehovah's Witness    Selected books, bargains, etc. 
From here down it is negligible results.
  My #22 is: Liberal Quakerism    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
  My #23 is: Unitarian Universalism    Selected books, bargains, etc.   
  My #24 is:

Not much change it seems. Which of course, is why I cling to Orthodoxy.

Of course, some answers could distinguish WRO from EO or Byzantine Catholics from RC.
But if you object,  we could always throw out the question.

In the WR forum there's a thread saying most WRiters cross themselves in the same way as the Byzantines, which I believe is the pre-schism method.

i think all these 'orthodox' results confirm that the quizz is not too bad, not that there are so many orthodox people here! we validate it, not the other way round  ;)
remember not to rely to heavily on the computer!

but deborah, maybe u should change the 'faith' section of yr profile now!

I'll retake it when I'm at a laptop. I just did it on my iPad so I couldn't adjust the bars on importance. I'm curious to see how that affects my results.
Did you retake it? Did it change the results significantly? :)

Episcopal/Anglican Church (100%) 
Eastern Orthodox Church (90%) 
Evangelical Lutheran Church (85%) 
Methodist/Wesleyan Church (85%) 
Seventh-Day Adventist (85%) 

I was curious to see what my results would be given that on a good chunk of the questions I marked "no preference," since I am still working a lot of my beliefs out. I guess my first result makes sense. I know a lot of Episcopalians who aren't sure what exactly they believe.

It would be interesting to see how the author of this quiz weighted the answers to the various questions towards or against Orthodoxy as the final result.
