Probably. ;-)

I quite like epicureanism, but I don't think I am an actual epicurean because I don't think it works like that - not really. People are far too moody, irrational, impulsive and inconsistent to be any sort of -ist. I think a lot of people would like to identify with an -ism and try to come across as an -ist (at least in their public face) , but unless you don't think at all or have completely stopped thinking you should flip-flop between -isms all the time.

You could me an anti-ism-ist, or even a poly-ism-ist. But I might not be in another 5 minutes.

I'll be a non-conformist - if you will.

Never really thought about it, to be honest. Maybe something close to an existentialist, definitely not a humanist.

Secular humanism is probably the closest fit for my worldview.
