These questions will help you explore your beliefs about life, death and other people. There are no right or wrong answers. Try experimenting with different combinations and approaches. And don't worry about changing your mind.
As you answer more questions, your answers will map your position onto a graph which we’ve called The Death Dial. The two scales on this graph suggest how your answers combine into a view about the world. You can compare and share your results with friends on Facebook, and see how you match up next to some amazing people from history. What kind of a thinker are you? Are you a leader, a believer, a scientist, a mystic, or something else entirely?
There are no such things as better or worse answers. But you may find new ways of thinking about how you are defined by your personality and beliefs – and what lies beneath different ways of thinking about life and death.
