Eriks Thor’s Hero’s Journey’s Test (HJT)

May 2019 Beta Launch

This is the first draft and a new experiment of mine. The goal is to describe how our values grow and mature throughout our life. I believe our values grow in a somewhat predictable manner, starting out with a focus on our survival and protection, and later becoming more focused on things like family, pleasure, achievement, community, self-realisation and ultimately self-transcendence. The test pits different ideas and values against each others. In the end you get a result based on which values you tend to consistently rate as higher or more important than others.

The test is experimental and scores have yet to be weighted. If you have any feedback, save the link and save it to me using the chat button in the bottom right corner. Inspiration from this test was taken by studying Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Graves Spiral Dynamics model. It also takes inspiration from Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey. Ultimately, it is a way to help every personality type understand the difference between personal growth and personality.
