About This Quiz

If you believe in the concept of an afterlife, then you know we have up to maaaaaybe 100 years of life and literally all of eternity to not be alive. That's a whole heck of a long time to be a spirit. Some people see spirits all the time in their day to day lives - maybe a glimpse of a loved one or even an old pet from the corner of your eye. Sometimes we see movement in the shadows or a presence in a room. Some people will tell you they've full on lived in a haunted house with a ghost, or many ghosts, that were either helpful and friendly or terrifying and malevolent. Every culture in the world has stories and beliefs about what happens after we die and of things that exist beyond death. Friendly spirits or angry poltergeists or a hundred other things that don't fit into the category of living beings as we know it. They can't all be wrong, can they? But if they're right, what does that mean for you? What's your destiny after this life ends? Does who you are now influence the kind of spirit you'll become? Maybe! Answer some questions for us here and we'll tell you just what kind of spirit you'll become down the road. Take the quiz and see!
