Awareness Test Questions

GOOD SENSE AND COMMON SENSE
The personal relationship with the dominant way of thinking, with established beliefs, and with all that is passively absorbed throughout life and never, or almost never, questioned. We tend to accept the world as it is, and we do so depending on the time and place in which we find ourselves living. Moral references are needed, however, otherwise we move like flags exposed to the wind.

1. You find a substantial amount of money on the ground, enough to be able to buy you that thing you need. What is your first thought?
2. Is judging people right or wrong?
3. When 99 out of 100 people agree on a given issue, it means that:
4. What is the difference between GOOD SENSE and COMMON SENSE?
5. What do you think about the law?
6. At the end of this test you will not receive any results and you will realize that you have been deceived: what are you thinking right now?

INSTINCTUALITY AND SELF-CONTROL
The ability to stop and reflect and keep impulses at bay when the situation becomes delicate requiring self-control and rationality. Acting on instinct may help in certain cases, but in the long run it may not be an effective strategy and it becomes necessary to cultivate a more reflective attitude.

7. What distinguishes human beings from animals?
8. Money makes one happy. What do you think?
9. Someone tells you that a group of people made a stupid and ignorant comment about you, showing that they do not know you at all. How do you react?
10. Regarding vices, what are your thoughts?

MATERIALISM AND CONSUMERISM
Knowing how to untangle between real needs and needs induced by advertising and by the exhibitionism of a consumerist society that is very focused on having and appearing. Developing a deeper consciousness involves the ability to place proper value on things, and also knowing how to detach oneself from them when needed.

11. <<The things you own end up owning you>>. This quote comes from a movie called Fight Club. What does it make you think of?
12. In your opinion, is advertising really necessary?
13. The idea of leaving leftover food on your plate and then throwing it away (whether at home or at a restaurant), how does that feel to you?
14. If you could create an ideal world, what would you increase and what would you decrease?

INTROVERSION AND EXTROVERSION
The tendency to turn one’s gaze and interest toward one’s inner self, or, conversely, toward the outer world. The inner world asks complex questions, the outer world provides simple and comfortable answers. Introversion is often a sign of depth of soul, extroversion is frequently a sign of insecurity.

15. What kind of relationship do you have with noise?
16. Which of the following situations inspires you the most?
17. Which of the scenarios proposed below causes you the most discomfort?
18. Why do people seem to be more swaggering and confident when interacting virtually?

DOUBTS AND CERTAINTIES
Is it better to ask questions or focus on answers? The temperament of the spiritual seeker is doubtful; that of the worldly man is full of certainties. But have we ever wondered if those certainties taken for granted have any real foundation? The idea of questioning everything can be frightening, yet evolving also means being able to face one’s fears.

19. Do you prefer to ask yourself questions or give yourself answers?
20. Below you will find a number of more or less common beliefs, choose the one you feel is most true:
21. What do you think about regret and remorse?
22. Do you put your trust in politics?
23. Truth and relativism: what is the relationship between them?

RELIGIOSITY AND SPIRITUALITY
Religion, at least in theory, deals with the spiritual needs of human beings. However, religiosity and spirituality are by no means synonymous and, at times, can even be mutually exclusive. Belief and Intuition are two different things, and a dogmatic attitude is certainly not favoring the path to soul awakening.

24. What is the difference between HAVING FAITH and BELIEVING?
25. What do you think about Reincarnation?
26. Here are a series of statements about religion. Which among them comes closest to your own thinking?
27. The law of cause and effect (Karma) states that our every action generates effects in this life and/or the next. What are your thoughts on this?
28. Do Good and Evil really exist?

DUALISM AND DUALITY
The human mind is divided into two hemispheres, and this is probably where the dualistic worldview comes from. Black and white, true and false, good and evil. However, the universe does not follow the rules of the mind, and the spiritual seeker knows how much thoughts can distort the perception of reality and lead us away from the path of truth.

29. Free will may be defined as:
30. Choose the noun combination that makes the most sense to you:
31. A world in which there is no money or work. How does that affect you?
32. Imagine a person who was able to become rich and established from a modest family. How does that affect you?
33. Last and most important question, it can completely overturn the outcome of the test (*): how do you rate the questions on this test?

HOW ARE THE RESULTS CALCULATED?
Each question contributes a certain number of points to the final score. Some questions weigh more than others, meaning that one question deemed important may be worth as much as two deemed less impactful.
The Awareness score (xx/200) is given by the algebraic sum of the points obtained in the individual questions.
The calculation of the Awareness level (e.g., Spiritual), on the other hand, is based not only on the algebraic sum of the points obtained in the individual questions, but also on any contradictions detected by the system in the replies provided by the user. What does it mean? Basically, the software is able to determine whether the person is operating without logic, providing some particularly conscious answers and others completely impulsive. In this case it will apply a smoothing algorithm, lowering the final result by one level while keeping the overall score intact. Doing so, prevents the user who responds impulsively or tries to cheat from getting a high level of Awareness.
