This is not a test, so there are no wrong answers. The Spiritual Gifts Survey consists of 80 statements. Some items reflect concrete actions; other items are descriptive traits; and still others are statements of belief.
Select the one response you feel best characterizes yourself and place that number in the blank provided. Record your answer in the blank beside each item.
Do not spend too much time on any one item. Remember, it is not a test. Usually your immediate response is best.
Please give an answer for each item. Do not skip any items.
Do not ask others how they are answering or how they think you should answer.
Work at your own pace.
5—Highly characteristic of me/definitely true for me
4—Most of the time this would describe me/be true for me
3—Frequently characteristic of me/true for me–about 50 percent of the time
2—Occasionally characteristic of me/true for me–about 25 percent of the time
1—Not at all characteristic of me/definitely untrue for me
To be clear, this is an imperfect test. Sometimes tests like these can highlight your natural or learned abilities rather than the gifts you have received from the Holy Spirit.
Use these results as a starting point, not an end goal. Ask the Lord to help you dig deep to discover where He has truely gifted you, so you can then use those gifts in the Church and in your relationships.
Be sure to take time to look through the results, thank God for the gifts He has given to you, and ask Him how you might be able to help serve and build up the Church using the gifts He's given you.
