About This Quiz

Before we discovered the subatomic world, our concept of the elements was limited to a more basic understanding. In many different cultures, nature was divided into four (sometimes five) elemental categories. Earth, wind, fire, water and sometimes spirit were determined to be the fundamental forms of all creation. Over the years, each of these elements became associated with a variety of human characteristics and personality traits. It is through these traditional concepts that we will match you up with the ancient element that fits you the best.

Maybe you're a fiery and passionate individual who relies more on your gut than anything else when making a decision. If you're amazing at providing inspiration and motivating others at the beginning of a project, it's really starting to sound like your element is fire. Should you inform us that you have an exciting love life and you love to travel the world, we'll be even more convinced that you're a beacon of light for others.

On the other hand, maybe you're a grounded person who focuses most of your attention on comfort and creating a cozy and welcoming home environment. If you're financially stable and you gravitate towards practical solutions to problems, you definitely appear to be a very earthy person. We'll be sold on the idea if you mention that you also love to cook.
