About This Quiz

The word "occult" comes from a Latin word that means "secret" or "hidden." It's an appropriate term since much of what we consider occult is mysterious and hidden. The dark powers of the supernatural and mystical, the paranormal, the science and the philosophy of things that seem to be beyond the understanding of normal people — all that falls under the blanket of the occult. Some of it nice, some of it not so nice. In so many words, it's the opposite of science, which deals in facts and what can be observed and proven.

Over the years, the world of the occult has grown to encompass many different things from New Age beliefs in crystals and healing to the practice of dark magic to trying to converse with the dead. It straddles the lines between religion, science, spirituality, and superstition and seeks to give answers where none of those other disciplines are able to do so. The result? The powers of the occult are diverse and awe-inspiring. They make the impossible possible. So which powers would be best suited to someone like you?
