About This Quiz

Everything you see, hear, touch, or taste is affected, in some way, by the four elements: earth, air, fire, and water! Your behavior, your personality, and your likes and dislikes can help determine which of the elements you are at heart. By sharing your thoughts and the way you live your life with us, we'll make sure that you know which one you exhibit the most. 

Perhaps, you've always been a little firebug. Or maybe you have always felt like you belong living a life on the high seas. No matter how you see yourself, we're sure that there's one element with more pull over your behavior than all the others. 

As you answer the questions in this element quiz, try to choose the response you find most real to you and your inner thoughts. Once we get to know you and the way you react to certain situations, we'll be able to make your element known. Whether you feel as light air or as humble as the earth, you'll understand why once you finish. 

Make yourself comfortable, and tell us all about your life! Your unique personality will point us in the right direction. You'll no longer blow around in the wind wondering which element you are!
