Find Your Special Abilities With This Quiz!

Special Abilities are those things we can do seemingly without any training or instruction. In religious circles, these are often referred to as Spiritual Gifts. In general, these abilities are innate and require no real training or education, although they can be enhanced with additional targeted training. An example would be the child who knows how to take apart and repair a lawn mower without ever being shown how or someone who can pick up a knife and carve a beautiful keepsake without receiving any instruction. Their skill is instinctive and natural. For this test to be valid, do not respond on the basis of what you think you ought to say, but rather on the basis of your interest and experience. Do not let modesty hinder you from answe
