About This Quiz
An Oracle is essentially anyone with insight into things that have yet to happen. Call it psychic powers, prophecy, precognition or what you will. The Oracle sees what is yet to be either clearly or in a confusing, almost cryptic way that needs to be sorted out by whoever seeks to benefit from that knowledge. And surely we've all had those moments when we thought we knew what was going to happen and it did! Or that sense of déjà vu where you're positive you've experienced events around you before. That's a special kind of sixth sense at work. But do you have it? And how can we get to know you enough to tell?
There are 1,001 ways you can get to know another person in life. You can read about them based on what they post in their profile online, you can work in close quarters or attend classes with them. You can become friends and share your innermost thoughts, and of course, you can fall in love. No journey to knowing someone else is ever the same, and that's part of the fun of getting to know people. Do you know what we like? Would You Rather. Play a game with us, and we'll let you know if there's an Oracle hidden in your soul. Take the quiz and see!
It's the first thing in the morning! Would you rather wake up to find your basement flooding or all your windows broken?
Well, no windows means a nice breeze, I suppose.
If it's summer, take my windows!
A flooded basement will dry up eventually.
I can always bail out a flooded basement without spending money.
Hungry? Would you rather have a pizza smothered in anchovies or one covered in pineapple?
Pineapple's good for you!
I haven't had anchovies in forever, I'll try that.
I can't eat a sweet pizza, so give me the little fishes.
Some days are luckier than others! Would you rather win a new car or a trip around the world?
I'd be much more excited to travel.
I could get more use out of a car.
I could sell the car, get a used car and have money to travel!
There are lots of places I want to see, so I'd choose the trip.
Your friends just hooked you up with a blind date and it's looking grim. Would you rather your date had bad breath or B.O.?
I can give someone with bad breath a mint so I'll pick that.
We can go out in a breeze, so I'll pick the B.O.
You have to get in close and talk on a date and I can't handle bad breath. Gimme the body odor.
Bad breath all the way, I can just not face them when we talk.
This one may be the toughest one of all! Would you rather play with a basket of puppies or a basket of kittens?
Kittens are the cutest by far!
I'd have more fun with the kittens.
Puppies are more playful I think.
Let's say you're on a road trip and you're miles from anywhere. Would you rather get a flat tire or run out of gas?
It's never hard to find gas.
I'd run out of gas since there has to be a gas station within a reasonable distance.
If I had a flat, I'm sure someone could help me faster than I could walk to get gas.
Looks like there's an issue with breakfast. Would you rather have slimy eggs or undercooked sausage?
Slimy eggs are at least edible.
Ugh. I can't handle an undercooked egg.
Undercooked sausage could kill you. Give me the eggs.
It's your lucky day! Would you rather find a wish-granting monkey's paw or a leprechaun's pot of gold?
The gold seems like it'd have fewer problems.
I can handle a leprechaun.
Sometimes nature is unpredictable. Would you rather be bitten on the hand by one pit bull or have your feet chewed on by 20 rats?
I'll take my chances with the rats.
I hate rats! I'll take the dog.
I could make friends with a dog, I'll take that one.
Do you know how hard a pit bull can bite? Give me the rats.
The kitchen can be hazardous to your health. Would you rather drink ice-cold orange juice after brushing your teeth or get jalapeno juice in your eye?
Orange and toothpaste seem less damaging.
I can't handle that gross toothpaste feeling.
I don't want to ruin my vision, I'll drink the juice.
How much of a fan of extreme sports are you? Would you rather go skydiving or bungee jumping?
I love the idea of skydiving.
Bungee jumping is over faster.
Skydiving would scare me too much.
I feel like skydiving would be more of an experience.
Everyone has to do a job they don't like at some point. Would you rather work an extra hour every night of the week or work a half day on your day off?
I need my time off. I'll work the extra hour.
Just a half day? I can do that.
A half day would be one hour less, right? I'll do that.
I guess I can handle another hour every day.
How are you at getting along with others? Would you rather have extremely noisy neighbors or nudists who never shut their curtains?
I can sleep through the night with nudists around.
I don't want to see my naked neighbors.
Nude neighbors sound scary. I can handle the noise.
Are the neighbors attractive? That could be interesting.
And now a matter of survival. Would you rather drink water from a river or from an open bottle you found on the street?
If it's survival? Give me the bottle.
That bottle could have anything in it. I'll take the river.
Wait, which river are we talking about?
The bottle is maaaaaaaybe safer? I pick that.
When it comes to a super fun night, would you rather see your favorite band at a private show or get to attend the red-carpet premiere of a huge new movie?
I think the band would be a better experience.
Red carpet means celebrities, right? I'll take the movie.
The band experience would be more memorable.
Time travel in movies almost never works out. Would you rather go back, and get stuck forever, in 1975 or 1875?
I know more about life in 1975. I'd take that.
I bet I could change the world in 1875.
Things would be way more interesting in 1875.
If I go to 1975, I can invest in Apple eventually! I'll take it.
Don't forget hygiene! Would you rather only be able to take 5-minute showers for the rest of your life or one-hour baths?
Baths are super relaxing, sign me up!
I can't spare that many hours, I'll take the showers.
Showers sound way more efficient.
Baths will force me to slow down sometimes, I like that idea.
You can't have fun all the time. Would you rather read a 200-page book on the history of accounting or spend two hours watching your friend's wedding video in silence?
I hope my friend had a fun wedding, I'll watch the video.
Can I listen to music while I read? Give me the book.
The book sounds less stressful.
I bet it'd take me forever to read that book. I'll watch the video.
Is it possible to get through life without feeling embarrassment? Would you rather discover you'd just been talking to a room full of people with toilet paper hanging out of the back of your pants or chocolate smeared on your face?
Ugh. I guess maybe the toilet paper?
At least I got to eat chocolate, that sounds better.
Maybe not everyone noticed the TP. I choose that.
How are you at dealing with unfortunate stenches? Would you rather have your car sprayed by a skunk or give someone with bad gas a one-hour ride?
The skunk is at least outside the car. I pick that.
Skunk smell never goes away. Give me the gassy person.
I can roll down the windows! I choose a smelly person.
I hate this question, and I pick the skunk.
Claustrophobic? Would you rather be trapped on an elevator for an hour or in a dark basement?
The basement seems less dangerous.
Someone will be working on the elevator, I choose that.
An elevator has lights at least.
There's a lot more room in a basement so I'll go there.
The weather can get crazy these days. Would you rather experience a heatwave of over 100 degrees for five days or a five-day blizzard?
It's easier to warm up than cool down. Give me the blizzard.
I can't stand the cold, I'll take the heat.
Air conditioning to the rescue! I pick the heat wave.
All I need are some sweaters and a heater; I want the blizzard.
There's nothing worse than a restaurant making your food incorrectly. Would you rather only eat overly spicy food for the rest of your life or food that's so bland it has no flavor?
Bland food never hurt anyone's stomach. I'll take that.
I'd get used to the spice eventually so it's worth it.
We have a wildlife problem! Would you rather have a sasquatch living nearby or el chupacabra?
Bigfoot seems like an unhappy guy. I'll take el chupacabra.
El chupacabra just attacks goats, right? I'll take that thing.
I could get rich if I prove Bigfoot is real! Bring on the sasquatch.
Be careful when making dinner! Would you rather cut your fingertip with a kitchen knife or burn your hand on the stove?
A cut will probably heal better.
A quick burn shouldn't be too bad.
If I can handle sunburns, I can handle a stove burn.
Burns are awful; I'll take the cut.
How lucky can one person get? Would you rather win a lifetime supply of Taco Bell tacos or McDonald's hamburgers?
I don't care much for Taco Bell, so I'd take the burgers.
Tacos are healthier! I choose them.
Not every house is a home. Would you rather live in an amazing house with the worst roommate ever or in a dump with someone who's super fun?
The super fun dump sounds better.
I can avoid a crappy roommate. I want a nice house.
The amazing house for me.
No house is worth a bad roommate. I'll pick the dump.
Ever had a really great vacation? Would you rather get your flight bumped up to first class or your hotel room upgraded to a suite?
I'll be spending more time in the hotel, so I'll take the suite.
I'll be out doing stuff when I get there, so first class flight sounds fun.
I never fly first class! I'll take the flight.
I love a luxurious hotel room; I want the suite.
This one could drive you mad. Would you rather give up social media forever or any ability to watch TV or movies?
I'd go crazy if I couldn't watch TV and movies sometimes. I'd dump social media.
Everyone on social media talks about TV and movies! I'd get rid of social media.
I can find out about the latest shows on social media without having to watch them!
How much do you like a good meal? Would you rather eat nothing but soup for the rest of your life or cereal?
I need a hot meal! Soup it is.
I'm not a soup fan. Cereal it is.
Cereal is quick and easy, so why not?
There are a million kinds of soup. I pick that.
