    Why We Love It: If you’ve grown up in the evangelical church, you’ve probably heard plenty about the importance of “qu […]

    • i took the quiz and halfway through was thinking “am i any of these things?” and then scored nearly every point on ascetic. Ha. (Contemplative and intellectual were my other two.) But i felt differently about all of the categories when i read the descriptions. And every once in awhile a question would sound like a perfect match right up until the end, and then there would be a tacked-on thing that felt irrelevant.

      This felt a little tricky because there were questions i would once have answered yes to and no longer feel that those things fit. And some of the areas where i feel most connected to G-d weren’t even clearly represented, which leaves me guessing as to which category i’d likely find myself in if the questions were different. Also, that my highest score was in ascetic but i have next to no self-discipline? Hm.

      Probably all of this starts feeling a bit more clear when reading the book, though.

    • Yeah, I’m pretty much straight-up intellectual on this; I got a 20 on Ascetic, but I think that has more to do with the intellectual aspects (quiet time set aside!)  But this feels like a quiz where you could easily mistype yourself… a blog post I read on Myers-Briggs recently talked about how if you’re taking self-assessments, you’re comparing things only to yourself, vs. having an outside expert type you, who would compare you to the rest of the world. Am I an intellectual? Probably… but I have never, ever been the type to do what people teach as “studying” the Bible – blocking out an hour for a quiet time and doing rigorous cross-checks and whatnot. I read theology books, but not regularly. So am I really an intellectual?

  • I’ve written a bunch of film and TV scripts, am currently developing an audio drama and an online graphic novel, and would like to take a crack at a novel next.

    I’m especially interested right now in the possibilities publishing things serially online… anyone with experience in this area?
