About This Quiz

Ancient symbols were so much more than ways to communicate with one another. Some experts, like Carl Jung, say that those symbols also represent something in our subconscious. They were certain forms of thought that were able to transmit or influence thoughts or feelings in others. Some even go so far as saying that these symbols are the "blueprints of our souls." Given how spiritual ancient cultures were, and how they relied on forces outside of their control for many things in life, this is very believable. 

Ancient symbols were also a way to represent people's beliefs, so a lot of symbols are religious or depict some kind of god or leader. A lot of these symbols are still used today, and while the meaning of them may have shifted, the symbol remains mostly the same. The things that you believe in and what you like to do can also correlate to these ancient symbols. Of course there are the obvious ones like the Star of David and the cross, but there are more unique and interesting ones that you may have never even heard of that connect with you on some level. So which ancient symbol reflects who you are? Take this quiz!
