    Vision Quest

    About this self-reflection test: There are no quick solutions – reserve some time for this as you need it for self-reflection. The test only works if you take it seriously and think carefully before answering any questions.



    1. What are you naturally curious about?

    This is essentially about your interests. In order to understand yourself better you can ask yourself what kind of non-fiction books do you enjoy reading? What is the topic of the documentaries you like to watch? What are the newspaper or magazine articles about that you always read? What do you enjoy learning about?



    1. What would you like to change about the world?

    This is a very powerful question. What are the kind of issues in the society that make you angry? What are the news about that make you angry? What do you want to change in the world for better?



    1. What would you love to do or accomplish before you die?

    Try to make the list as big as you can.



    1. What would you do if you could not fail?

    There are no limits – whatever you decide to do you will succeed at. If there is no fear of failure, what would you do?



    1. What would you do if you would not be limited by money?

    Sometimes we set barries for our thinking because we think in terms of monetary limitations. If there wouldn’t be any, what would you dedicate yourself to?



    1. What would you like to hear at your funeral?

    Imagine it’s your funeral and everybody close to you is there. One by one they give speeches. What would you like each of these speakers to say about you and your life? What kind of a friend and family member were you? Colleague? What character would you like them to have seen in you? What contributions, what achievements would you want them to remember? Look carefully at the people around you. What difference would you like to have made in their lives?





    1. What are the things you currently enjoy doing?

    What are the activities that make you feel the time just flies? Try to think about both, the fun stuff and productive activities.



    1. What were the activities or tasks you were doing when you felt most empowered?

    Think about the jobs you have had, voluntary work, school and so on. What were you doing when you felt the happiest, most productive and eager to do what you were doing?


    1. What would you most like to be acknowledged for so far in your life?

    What are the accomplishments you are proud of? Small or big, what are you proud of yourself?



    1. If you had only one wish, what would it be?

    Think about this for a minute and make sure you really nail it.



    1. Whose life do you want to be living?

    Who are the people (current or historical figures) that you admire, even envy a bit perhaps?



    1. What ideas are you most inspired by? Why?

    The ideas might be about life, career, society or whatever for that matter. Examples of an inspiring idea could be carbon emission free living, free education for all, world where intercultural understanding prevails and so on.



    1. With whom would you like to surround myself?

    What are the kind of people you would like to be surrounded with in terms of lifestyle, occupation, wealth, interests?



    1. Do you take responsibility for what is happening to you?

    Look at the kind of person you are and where you are with your life right now. Do you believe it is you who is the reason for the way things are? Can you create your own future?
