About This Quiz

Not much in the universe is getting done without energy. To be fair, there wouldn't be a universe without energy. You need it even to hold the atoms that make up all the physical objects that exist, not to mention keeping everything warm enough not to freeze your burritos.  Life is energy and energy is life. But as we know, energy has a habit of changing forms. There's a nuclear reaction in the sun that's producing thermal energy and electromagnetic energy all the time. Your car is working with mechanical energy, there's chemical energy when you drop a Mentos into a Diet Coke, and gravitational forces are at work every single time you drop your phone. You can't escape it!

With all that energy swirling around you and through you every day, you could stand to get to know it all a little bit better. These are the forces that make the universe work, and you're as much a part of the universe as anything else, right? Definitely! So why not answer a few questions about yourself and we'll figure out exactly where you fit into the universe on a basic, energetic level. In no time, we'll be able to tell you just what kind of energy you really are. Take the quiz and see!
