What’s My Spiritual Type?

A friend suggested I take this test hosted at the Methodist publishing company Upper Room’s website.  It’s supposed to answer the question, “What’s your spiritual type?”  So I took it.  Here’s what it said:

You are a Sage, characterized by a thinking or head spirituality. You value responsibility, logic, and order. Maybe that’s why you were voted “Most Dependable” by your high school classmates. Structure and organization are important to you. What would the world be like without you? Chaos, that’s what! Your favorite words include should, ought, and be prepared. What makes you feel warm and fuzzy? Like Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof it’s tradition! tradition! tradition!

Because you love words, written or spoken, you enjoy a good lecture, serious discussions, and theological reflection. Prayer for you usually is verbal. You thrive on activity and gatherings of people, such as study groups. Sages on retreat likely would fill every day with planned activities, leaving little time for silence or solitude.

We need Sages for your clear thinking and orderly ways. You pay attention to details that others overlook. Sages make contributions to education, publishing, and theology. You often are the ones who feel a duty to serve, give, care, and share with the rest of us.

On the other hand, sometimes you seem unfeeling, too intellectual, or dry. Can you say “dogmatic”? You may need to experience the freedom of breaking a rule or two every now and then. God’s grace covers Sages too, you know!

You can take the same test here.

I think this is actually a reasonably good assessment.  I wonder if I seemed “unfeeling, too intellectual, [and] dry” on that Walkabout in Nevada…..

    Of course I couldn’t resist taking it, and no big surprise, I’m a mystic! Thanks for the heads-up, Eric — I also posted it to my blog.

    The world needs Mystics, Ann … but not too many. 😉
