Spiritual Gifts Questionnaire

So, you want to test yourself looking forward to discover (or confirm) your spiritual gifts! Below is a well-known questionnaire on spiritual gifts, one that you can find in Discover Your Spiritual Gifts.

In order to know yourself better, there are prepared no less than 135 questions!

135 questions?

Well, when you know there are almost 30 spiritual gifts, and you allow yourself being questioned about each one of them using only 5 questions, then the 135 figure is quite fair.

Do you know the gifts?

Do you know the Biblical spiritual gifts? Take a look here to find them as they are enlisted or mentioned in the Scripture.

Now scroll the list below. After the number of each question (1) or (2) or… (135) we added the spiritual gift that is the focus of that searching (for example TEACHING, or VOLUNTARY POVERTY), so that you know exactly to which one does the question refer. The gifts repeat themselves, so that you can answer 5 times regarding each one of them.

How to score?

Following each question is the score that you would give yourself to it. If you know the answer is “much”, add 3; if “some”, add 2; if “little”, add 1; and if “not at all”, don’t add anything, it is zero.

For example:

To the Q 22. (CELIBACY) I am single and enjoy it., you don’t need too much time to answer. You know exactly what to write here. But for Q 31. (WISDOM) I can intuitively arrive at solutions to fairly complicated problems., there you might need some time and… wisdom to know where you are.

Where do you start?

Take a paper, make a list counting from 1 to 135, and add to each one of the questions the score you think you have. The best is to use the document here.

What to do when finishing?

There are 27 spiritual gifts, marked from A, B, C… to AA. At the end, you count the scores for each letter, A, Q, W etc. (see the document linked to above) and see which have the highest scores. Out of them, mark down the first 3 which are dominant and the following 3 which are subordinate.

Don’t forget!

It is a tentative evaluation. It is not the final test of your Christian experience. But it surely is a starting place for your service to the Lord. Check with others, pray about it and start using the number of gifts you have. The confirmation or the lack of it will challenge you to refine your test. Come here again!
