I ran across this Narnia quiz — Are You a Lion or a Witch? — on Beliefnet.com. I scored 102 out of 120, which according to the rating scale, makes me Aslan.
As someone who loves the Narnia series and knows who Aslan represents, I actually feel a little uncomfortable with the results of this quiz. I think I’m probably more Lucy than Lion. I would have even been content to wind up as Mr. Tumnus. Of course, my heart desires to become more and more Christlike, but I have a hard time believing I’ve come close enough just yet. Hey, I know that I’m not always unselfish and thinking of others before myself! But thankfully, I’m not so bad I turned out to be the witch.
Anyway, go take the quiz if you’ve got a few minutes and let me know your results.
According to the site, here is how to interpret the scores:
0 – 20
You live for yourself and have little inclination to help others. Your main goals in life are fulfilling your own desires, and pursuing power and material things. You are the White Witch, who enslaves Narnia and forbids its inhabitants to celebrate Christmas.
21 – 50
Your instincts are good overall, but you are easily tempted to focus on yourself at the expense of others. You can be impulsive and not think through the consequences of pursuing what you want. You are Edmund, who mocked Lucy when she first told of visiting Narnia, who later fell prey to the temptations of Turkish Delight, before realizing his mistakes and becoming Edmund the Just.
51 – 75
You do a lot of good for other people, but often are stymied by fear of repercussions or what others will think. You pursue your own needs and goals but also make time for others. You are Mr. Tumnus, the faun who intends to kidnap Lucy for the Witch but realizes he shouldn’t.
76 – 100
You have a strong sense of responsibility toward others and a deep respect for other people, even strangers, though you are not always sure what the best course of action is. You are Lucy, the brave child who who is wise beyond her years and kind to all she meets.
101 – 120
Always thinking of others before yourself, you are self-sacrificing, selfless, and your motives are pure. You are Aslan, the mighty and kind lion who uses his power for good and sacrifices himself for others.
