    I can very much relate to the autodidactic approach (which is another great new phrase for me), and secular Buddhism too. I'm not one much for ritual, or religion.

    Have found the secular approach to Buddhist practice to be the best fit. However, I am drawn to The Theravada because of their Pali Canon:

    Give www.suttacentral.net a look; you'll probably like it as well.

    Yes - Theravada. I already thought I really agreed with this one the most, and out of curiosity I took this quiz to find out some more. I looked into the different schools and felt the most at home with Theravada Buddhism http://www.selectsmart.com/plus/select.php?url=Buddhism

    I've never heard of that website before. I took the test, too, just for fun!

    I wouldn't ever put any stock in an internet quiz, but the results can be interesting with this one as a new Buddhist some of the terminology was confusing, but at least it made me research!

    Soto Zen for me, but I didn't note a score. I did get 60% on Vajrayana, which surprised me somewhat.

    I have often considered Zen as an alternative to Tibetan Buddhism (mind you, I am also interested in Secular Buddhism!), but I am not a fan of koans, or teachings that are not clear to me.
