About This Quiz

A lot of people believe that souls are essentially timeless. You'll hear the expression "old soul" now and again to describe someone who seems like they've maybe lived through all of this before and have a wisdom and patience that is beyond their apparent years. And then there are other people who can be in their 50s and still somehow act like spoiled children. Your inner soul doesn't have to match your outer age by any means, and often it doesn't seem to even come close. How does that even happen? Some would say it's because your soul doesn't follow the same rules as the body. Your soul can be reborn again and again in an effort to learn new lessons and grow into the fullness of itself. But of course, other souls must start at the very beginning and learn everything for the first time like a newborn.

If you've ever wondered where your inner soul fits in on the scale, then wonder no longer! Whether your inner soul is brand new to the world and experiencing everything for the first time or whether it's been around the block more times than the bus, all you need to do is take the quiz to find out!
