Spiritual Gifts Test Results

What Now?

Now that you've taken the Gifts Test, we suggest the following steps:

  1. Read the results
  2. Print this page for future reference
  3. Watch Vince's explanation of your Gifts Test results - Video, 40:50
  4. Consider discussing your results with your spouse, pastor, and spiritual mentor
  5. Let us know if you have any questions
  6. Get out there and use your gifts!

This test was designed to help you better understand the way God has made you. Your natural gifts, (sometimes referred to as your bent or temperament), become the filter through which you see life, and can have a strong influence on the decisions you make.

By re-reading the statements in your two top score categories you are simply looking at the behavioral characteristics associated with people who have those gifts.

We recommend that you share this information with your family, pastor and other friends and begin looking for opportunities to enter into activities that will maximize your gifts.

For instance, if you score high in administration or perceiver, look for projects to manage. If you are more into the ministry or mercy areas, you may want to take a missions trip or visit a hospital. Many times in the exercising of your natural gifts God reveals His great purpose for your life.

Finally, this device is not intended to suggest a career path, or to influence you to change your vocation. It simply suggests that, whatever your vocation is, you will approach it within the context of your natural gifts. If you happen to be searching for a new vocation, this information can be helpful as it gives you some ideas about your temperament. Listed below are some suggested vocations and the Natural Gifts that best fit.

Please keep in mind that this is a very loose association and does not take into consideration your personal likes and dislikes with regard to various lines of work.

      They generally make good leaders but depending upon their second gift they may possess a dictatorial management style or more of a team approach. Perceivers whose second gift is on the hard-side will tend to be more autocratic, while those whose second gift leans toward the soft-side will be more democratic.

      If a teacher's second gift is on the hard-side it can cause them to be overly critical and domineering. It can also be a great asset for no-nonsense approaches to tasks or problems.

      Exhorting will usually have a soft-sided second gift associated with it. They make wonderful coaches and counselors and enjoy helping bring out the best in people.

      The gift of giving associated with another soft-sided gift usually produces people who will freely give to a cause without having to be intimately involved with the end result.

      When this gift is associated with another hard-sided gift it can produce people who are so structured that no amount of gray area can be tolerated. These are the kind of people who make great turn-around management specialists. They have little time or patience with mediocre work. When this gift is complimented with one on the soft-side it usually produces strong general-management skills. They can be firm and organized yet inspire people to follow them.

      Most often this gift has another soft-sided gift associated as the number two. In this case it indicates a high level of relational skill with some weakness in the organizational areas. Those who possess strong mercy gifts generally do not do well with deadlines or projects that need a lot of timeline management. If, however there is a hard-sided gift associated it can bring balance in the area of managing tasks.
