About This Quiz

The definition of "witch" has gone through a profound evolution since its inception. There was a time when it was considered heretical not to believe in the existence of witches, and within the span of a century it became heretical to believe in the existence of witches. In some cultures, witches were healers or seers. In other cultures, witches were malevolent worshipers of evil, ranked among monsters like vampires and kobolds.

Today, most people know better. There are people who call themselves witches; practitioners of any of various neopagan religions and the like. There are people who go by "witch" or some cultural variant, who practice their culture's black magic, casting spells that terrify. Being witchy is about more than either of those things. Being a witch comes from within, and stems from an inner light, an inner power that takes one of many forms. What it boils down to is a latent power to influence others and to influence outcomes through force of character. To be witchy, one needs integrity because it comes from being truly oneself without making excuses, all the while being powerful in a unique way.
