About This Quiz

Many people believe that they have lived several different past lives, with some believing that they once lived as an object, plant or an animal. The real question is, what were you called in your past life? Did you have a strong name that represents independence and willpower, or was your name more soft and feminine? 

Even if you don't believe that past lives exist, let's just use our imagination for today! Where do you think you lived in your past life? What did you eat or drink? And most of all, did you know anybody from your past life that you currently know today? Some people also believe that their memories have "carried over" from their past life to their current life. When it comes to the abstract concept of past lives, it's important to think about what you will be like in your next life as well. Do you think you'll learn from your mistakes, or will you live in an endless cycle of bad habits? There is no right or wrong answer to these example questions, but we are curious about what you think when it comes to the idea of past lives. Tell us more about your life perspectives with this abstract personality quiz!
