Lasciate Ogni Speranza Indeed

The Dante's Inferno Test has banished you to the Eigth Level of Hell - the Malebolge!
Here is how you matched up against all the levels:
LevelScore
Purgatory (Repenting Believers)Very Low
Level 1 - Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers)Moderate
Level 2 (Lustful)High
Level 3 (Gluttonous)Low
Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious)Very Low
Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy)Moderate
Level 6 - The City of Dis (Heretics)High
Level 7 (Violent)High
Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers)High
Level 9 - Cocytus (Treacherous)Moderate

Take the Dante Inferno Hell Test

Obviously, you wouldn't expect it to take very much to be judged lustful or heretical by the standards implied by a 13th century work of literature notable amongst other things for its use of the explicitly religious moral code of a seemingly particularly vindictive and self-righteous ancient desert tribe in order to settle personal and political scores. The violence and fraudulence is a bit surprising though, not least because you'd expect that you'd only get high scores for vice if you also had the virtue of honesty.
