Belief-O-Matic — Personality quiz about your religious and spiritual beliefs

July 31, 2006 | By | 3 Replies More

Belief.net offers Belief-O-Matic:

Even if YOU don’t know what faith you are, Belief-O-Matic™ knows. Answer 20 questions about your concept of God, the afterlife, human nature, and more, and Belief-O-Matic™ will tell you what religion (if any) you practice…or ought to consider practicing.

I took the quiz tonight.  The questions were straightforward and well thought out. It turns out that I am a Unitarian Universalist.  A close second is Secular Humanist. 

Here is how Belief.net describes itself:

Belief.net is the largest spiritual web site. We are independent and not affiliated with any spiritual organization or movement. Our only agenda is to help you meet your spiritual needs.

If you enjoyed Belief-O-Matic, Belief.net also offers a second survey you might enjoy: What’s Your Spiritual Type?  This second quiz is “meant to help you learn about your self, see how you compare with others, and have a little fun.”  This second quiz indicated that I am a “Spiritual Dabbler–Open to spiritual matters but far from impressed.”  Hmmm . . .

    Huh. I too came out as Universal Unitarian, but #2 was mainline to liberal protestant. I wonder which question is the trip question that tilts you over into a religious category despite the fact that most spiritual answers are negative? (Secular humanist for me came in # 3.)

    I think I took this some time ago as well, I think I had the same result (at least the top result) as you; Universal Unitarian. However back when I took it I found it to be at least a bit biased toward Judeo-Christian traditon, with the possibility of "scoring" something like Hindu or Wiccan or some other less thought of faith being rare at best.

    What I found interesting is that Roman Catholic (the religion I was raised and taught from first through eighth grade) was at the very BOTTOM of my list. Dead last!

    I am a Liberal Quaker and didn't know it! No wonder I like oatmeal so much!
