About This Quiz

In classical Greek science and medicine, everything in the universe is composed of the four elements, including you. The four elements are Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. All of us have all four within us, but there is a different proportion of the four elements within all of us. Which element you have the most of has a lot to do with how you approach life, both the positive things that happen in it, as well as its challenges. 

If you are Water then you are likely to be emotional, intuitive, deeply creative, empathetic, spiritual and psychic, and you connect really well emotionally with others. If you happen to be Earth, then you are grounded, practical, disciplined, and focused. You like instruction, rules, and nothing makes you happier than a dependable routine. 

If Air is your dominant element, then you are brilliant, curious, independent, talkative, observant, and entertaining, but you also are restless and always looking for something new to focus your attention on. 

The last element is Fire, and if that is you then you are enthusiastic, impulsive, inspirational, humorous, dramatic, and fun, you are sometimes hard for people to deal with because you always talk straight from the heart. Which of the four elements describes your personality? Take this quiz to find out.
