About This Quiz

In the Middle Ages, there were no corporations, no stock exchanges, no telemarketers and no lawyers. It may sound like paradise, but people still needed to eke out a living. And medical knowledge was far from ideal. The plague, warriors pillaging your village, and starvation were just a few of the troubling problems of the time. How would you fit in during those medieval times? Which one of the many vital jobs would you have held during the Middle Ages? 

Some of the important roles of the time were among the clergy, trades, nobility and craftsmen, to name a few. Whether you can imagine your skill set being best used to make sturdy furniture or inspire others to lead a morally and ethically-pure life, this quiz will help you discover where you belonged during the Middle Ages. You'll be asked a series of questions about your outlook on life, your likes, dislikes and your social interactions. Your answers will help match you with roles that require leadership, responsibility, skillful agility and negotiating qualities that were required during those times. 

Take the quiz now and see how you would have survived the Black Death (1348-1350 AD), The Great Famine (1315-1317 AD), The Great Schism (1378-1417 AD) and other medieval events.
