Someone asked me, "So, what do you consider yourself? Modern Orthodox? Yeshivish?" And I responded back, "I consider myself Shomer Torah Umitzvos." He says back, "No seriously." I respond, "I am serious. My belief system isn't fully in anything -- some things I lean towards MO, others toward Yeshivish." I straddle both of them so to speak.
The Torah doesn't care what you call yourself, just do the mitzvos. HaShem didn't create the Torah and say, "be Orthodox." He just said, "keep my mitzvos." I do the best I can.

Wow, I'm really impressed, my goal in life is to be undefinable and I still wound up on that test as right wing modern orthdox. and I thought my answers were pretty liberal too.... Good for you for not fitting into a box. And the 2nd half of the post was very well said. Nice post.
