About This Quiz

Disney has done a great deal to promote the idea that the best thing you can be is a princess. Sheryl Sandberg has promoted the idea of being the C-level executive. Oprah wants women to be every sort of inspirational that a woman can be. 

Still, while you're adopting all of those roles, it's important not to forget that what you really have going for you is that on some level, you're a goddess. That is, you have a spark of divine fire in you that means you don't have to take any crap from anyone, and you can fulfill your potential without apologizing for your ambition and drive.

Still, not all goddesses are the same. Some are loving and nurturing - not because they have to be, but because they choose to be. Some are wrathful and judgmental, demanding perfection from their followers. Some decide to patronize fertility, family, or hearth and home, while others focus on education, work, hunting, or all manner of other aspects of the human condition. 

Which area a goddess chooses to focus on depends entirely on her personality, her priorities, and what she expects from the people around her. Tell us how you feel about all of that, and we'll help you find your goddess name!
