About This Quiz

No two people are the same. Depending on where one comes from, what one does for a living, and one's cultural or religious background, a person's strengths, tastes, and state of mind can vary. This is why humanity has been so successful. People who totally focused on a single endeavor, like physics or art, are the reason that we can enjoy art like the Sistine Chapel ceiling or fly into outer space. There are no unimportant people, only people whose importance is not yet understood.

Your childhood, education, religion, and life experience not only provide you with tools but also motives. That combination drives you to do all the things you do, and contribute to the world in a way only you are capable of. Then, of course, there are the gifts of nature. There are certain aspects of humanity that we inherit, like our affinity for math, or painting, or basketball. These gifts can be embraced or cast aside, and sometimes the latter is for the best, as many great humans abandoned one calling for another for which they are well known.

So what sets you apart? Where are you from that gave you your start in life? What gifts lie locked in your DNA? What unique skills did your education impart? What is the thing that makes you special?
