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. 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 answering honestly, and don’t try to answer what you want them to be. Select which of the two statements is most like you. Some questions may be difficult to determine which is more like you, but make your best effort to choose one.
