About This Quiz

An Oracle is essentially anyone with insight into things that have yet to happen. Call it psychic powers, prophecy, precognition or what you will. The Oracle sees what is yet to be either clearly or in a confusing, almost cryptic way that needs to be sorted out by whoever seeks to benefit from that knowledge. And surely we've all had those moments when we thought we knew what was going to happen and it did! Or that sense of déjà vu where you're positive you've experienced events around you before. That's a special kind of sixth sense at work. But do you have it? And how can we get to know you enough to tell?

There are 1,001 ways you can get to know another person in life. You can read about them based on what they post in their profile online, you can work in close quarters or attend classes with them. You can become friends and share your innermost thoughts, and of course, you can fall in love. No journey to knowing someone else is ever the same, and that's part of the fun of getting to know people. Do you know what we like? Would You Rather. Play a game with us, and we'll let you know if there's an Oracle hidden in your soul. Take the quiz and see!
