The Honesty and Integrity Test

The Honesty and Integrity TestThe Honesty and Integrity Test, also known as the Integrity, Honor, and Honesty Assessment is the seventh test on This test is completely different from any other, as the test is already completed before you start. There is no test, but instead a video. In the video, Hans Van Eeghen explains that if anyone cheated, they have failed the recruitment process. He also reveals that he is Black Swan. The final results will be released December 15th. There are two groups: Black Swan (the cheaters) and White Swan (those who did not cheat). Below is the transcript.

Namaste my recruits. I trust you're well. I'm sure many of you were expecting to undertake the seventh and final test in the volunteer recruitment program. Well, I take great pleasure in revealing that you have already completed this most challenging exam. I realize this may be a surprise to some so let me share with you the title of the test. Perhaps it will help explain this unexpected turn of events. The Integrity, Honor and Honesty Assessment.

Throughout the volunteer recruitment program, recruits were covertly supplied with cheat codes which, if utilized, provided an unfair advantage in the testing procedure. These codes were distributed by the ever persistent Black Swan. Despite repeated warnings to ignore Black Swan's communications, a significant proportion of recruits exploited these codes. However, what these recruits did not understand was that Black Swan's codes were also a test. A test I have been orchestrating since the very beginning of recruitment. A test of their integrity. I, of course, am Black Swan.

This deception was always part of my design for the recruitment process. It is not in my nature to behave in this way, but in this situation, it was necessary. The Dharma Initiative has been betrayed by those close to it before. We had to take seriously the possibility it could happen again. I must admit however, that I never anticipated how many talented recruits would be so easily tempted. How many would be without integrity, honor or honesty.

As a result, these recruits have failed the seventh test. Furthermore, their future in the Dharma Initiative is also under review. For those of you who did not resort to using the code, you have naturally passed the integrity test. You are to be commended for your honesty. The officials reviewing your results will look very favorably on this outcome. Congratulations.

This document contains the raw data collected from all recruits during the testing procedures. Individual test scores, cumulative scores, averages, groups, Dharma points, cheat codes utilized. It is all here. And there are a number of observations I could make from just a preliminary examination of the test data. But that would be improper. As stipulated by official procedure, your results will now go to the Dharma Initiative's recruit evaluation panel for review. The outcome of which will determine your role within the Dharma Initiative's current project.

On behalf of the Dharma Initiative, I would like to thank you all for your efforts over the last seven weeks. The final decision regarding your position within upcoming research activities will now be left in the hands of my superiors. Results will be released after December 15.

Good luck to you all and as the great French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau argued, "Patience is bitter, but it's fruit is sweet." Namaste
