Time for another one

This one amused me mainly because I've never heard of this guy. Hey, if I'm going to be a dictator, might as well be a fairly benign one. Also note that I'm smart enough to know that a free, capable press is one of the biggest threats to my regime.

Gen. Than Shwe

You scored -6 Ego and 2 Ideology!

When Than Shwe (1933- ) became disgruntled with his postal work, he
left for the Psychological Warfare department of the Burmese army. In
1988, the government was overthrown by the amusingly-acronymed SLORC,
of which Shwe was a leading member, and he became President in 1992. He
renamed the country Myanmar, and oversaw a liberalization of the
nation's economy while simultaneously cracking down on the press.
Like Shwe, you'd rather not deal with parades, or the press, or any of
that fancy stuff. You've got a job to do, and you're willing to stay
out of the public eye to do so. But when somebody dares question your
vision, you'll make sure they pay for it.

My test tracked 2 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
