About This Quiz

Far different from your personality, your soul is made up of traits that are beyond your worldly control. While you can tweak and bend your personality over time and with practice, your soul comes with a set of inherent qualities that you'll never be able to change. After you tell us all about yours, we'll figure out which part of it dominates your life according to the ancient Egyptians! 

Back during their pyramid days, the Egyptian spiritual system stated that every soul was made from nine distinct parts. From the Ka to the Ba, each part works together to form the very basis of your being. It also helps you to exist in the realm somewhere between here and the other worlds they believed in. Using our everyday terms and understanding of your soul, we're going to rate you on the ancient scale!

You probably don't give your soul much thought since it lives quietly within your consciousness, but open your third eye and let us in a little. Once we tally your responses, we'll know if you are ruled by your Kaht, your Ren or something else! Will your dominant part come out of its shell once you know?
