About This Quiz

The Greek gods and goddesses were not like the deity of the Abrahamic religions. That particular solo God is an all-knowing and all-capable entity whose defining characteristic as it relates to humans is that He is endlessly good, loving, and forgiving.

The Greek deities are not those things. On the contrary, they have all the same anger, pettiness, vengeful spite, and blindness that humans possess. They are subject to confirmation bias and to believing a lie. They sometimes do something against their own interests just to spite another member of their own pantheon. Yes, the Greek gods and goddesses can be absolutely horrible.

Of course, they are also capable of being really nice and decent. They can bless those who deserve it, by ensuring their farm produces a plentiful harvest and their cows produce twins. They can help people achieve their ultimate goals or find true love. They're just like us, but immensely more powerful. That means each of us has a Greek goddess who we surely resemble, including both the good and frustrating facets of their personality, as well as their areas of interest. Tell us about yourself, and we'll figure out which goddess of this broad and thrilling pantheon you are most like!
