Time mag quiz: How Spiritual Are You?

Answer the questions and then count up the number of "True" you had.


-------------------------------------------------------
1. I often feel so connected to the people around me that it is like there is no separation between us. True False

2. I often do things to help protect animals and plants from extinction. True False

3. I am fascinated by the many things in life that cannot be scientifically explained. True False

4. Often I have unexpected flashes of insight or understanding while relaxing. True False

5. I sometimes feel so connected to nature that everything seems to be part of one living organism. True False

6. I seem to have a "sixth sense" that sometimes allows me to know what is going to happen. True False

7. Sometimes I have felt like I was part of something with no limits or boundaries in time and space. True False

8. I am often called "absent-minded" because I get so wrapped up in what I am doing that I lose track of everything else. True False

9. I often feel a strong sense of unity with all the things around me. True False

10. Even after thinking about something a long time, I have learned to trust my feelings more than my logical reasons. True False

11. I often feel a strong spiritual or emotional connection with all the people around me. True False

12. Often when I am concentrating on something, I lose awareness of the passage of time. True False

13. I have made real personal sacrifices in order to make the world a better place, like trying to prevent war, poverty and injustice. True False

14. I have had experiences that made my role in life so clear to me that I felt very happy and excited. True False

15. I believe that I have experienced extrasensory perception. True False

16. I have had moments of great joy in which I suddenly had a clear, deep feeling of oneness with all that exists. True False

17. Often when I look at an ordinary thing, something wonderful happens. I get the feeling that I am seeing it fresh for the first time. True False

18. I love the blooming of flowers in the spring as much as seeing an old friend again. True False

19. It often seems to other people like I am in another world because I am so completely unaware of things going on around me. True False

20. I believe that miracles happen. True False

SCORING: Give yourself one point for each TRUE answer and 0 points for each FALSE answer. 14 and above = highly spiritual, a real mystic; 12-13 = spiritually aware, easily lost in the moment; 8-11 = spiritually average; could develop more spiritual life if desired; 6-7 = a practical empiricist lacking self-transcendence; 1-5 = highly skeptical, resistant to developing spiritual awareness

----------------------------------------------------------------------

I scored a 3

Funny, my daughter made up a quiz the other day and told me I was a hippie after taking it. I think I am by this quiz too--17 out of 20.

19. Wow, that's either really good or really bad. Depending on the day of the week

I had to say no to #10, although I should trust my gut. It would keep me out of a lot of trouble.

2, but even that's pushing it, since the two I answered true to are just marginally true.

Yeah, this is much more hippie and new agy than it is religious. I can answer a clear "false" to most of the questions but some I'm more in the middle which isn't allowed for (4, 8, 12, 19; for each I would say sometimes, not really often, so I guess they're technically "falses").

What a pile of crap. Is that really what they think spirituality is about? What the hell do saving endangered species and watching flowers bloom have to do with spirituality? Why are there like five questions about feeling some silly "unity" with the universe? Is it possible to score over ten on this quiz without smoking some serious weed?

i agree that this is a hippie quiz, not spiritual. i got a 6, i gave trues to a few maybes or sometimes to bump my score up.


i think we could come up with a better "spiritual quiz"

I scored a 3. True on 4, 8, and 12. I don't see how those are "spiritual" though.

That beliefnet survey I can't take because on the majority of those questions, I wholly disagree with all four options presented, and it won't give me a score without answering all the questions.

This more like a "New Age Hippie Crap" quiz than a "Spirituality" quiz. I got bored after the first few questions, so I don't know my score.

5. I sometimes feel so connected to nature that everything seems to be part of one living organism. - True

Damn, I got a 2, and I thought I was a hardcore skeptic. I believe a "true" on #4 and #12 is just a sign of dedication to task, not a sign of whacky spirituality.
