Tapping into Your Inner Psychic: Identify Your Strongest Psychic Ability with This Quiz

Everyone is psychic. Yes, really! Although psychic abilities may seem like a unique power, every person actually has the potential to develop their psychic senses. Think of it like this: some people may be born with a natural aptitude for drawing, but everyone can improve their drawing skills by taking an art class or practicing regularly. It is much the same with psychic abilities; some people may have a natural talent, but everyone has the potential to access their psychic abilities to some degree. Just like a muscle, these abilities can be strengthened with practice and use.

Calculating Your Score

Add up the total number of each letter that you chose. The letter that you have the most of will indicate your strongest psychic ability. You may find that you have one very developed ability, or you may have a wider range of abilities. Both of these outcomes are good! This quiz is primarily meant to help assess what psychic senses you have the strongest aptitude for. From there, you can develop them in any way that you want.

Mostly A - Claircognizance (Clear Knowing)

Claircognizance is the psychic ability most associated with your intuition or "gut instinct." With this psychic ability you are able to connect with your intuition, higher self, or other spiritual beings to receive insight about ideas, people, or situations. Those with a strong affinity for claircognizance are often human "lie-detectors," as they know when a situation feels off to them. Many also describe being able to anticipate phone calls, accidents, or interactions with people who were just on their mind.

Mostly B - Clairvoyance (Clear Seeing)

Clairvoyance is the psychic ability most commonly referenced outside of metaphysical communities. Those with strong clairvoyant abilities can often see spirits, auras, or energy either externally or internally, as well as receive spiritual messages through images they see in their third eye (mind's eye). People with an affinity for clairvoyance also often have very vivid and prophetic dreams. One way you can work on improving your clairvoyance is by keeping a dream journal.

Mostly C - Clairaudience (Clear Hearing)

Clairaudience is the psychic ability most associated with language and hearing. Often misunderstood, those with strong clairaudience may hear spiritual messages externally, but more commonly they will hear messages internally. This can best be described as similar to one's inner monologue. Except with clairaudience, the words, phrases, and voices that "pop in" sound/feel very separate from the inner monologue. Think of it like wearing headphones inside your brain. Clairaudience can also sometimes be experienced by seeing (mind's eye) written words or phrases.

Mostly D - Clairsalience (Clear Smelling)

Clairsalience is not as widely talked about as a psychic ability, but is quite common for people to experience. Those with strong clairsalience will often smell odors or fragrances that are not present in their surroundings. These scents are often associated with particular people, places, events, or memories. Beings will send these "spiritual scents" to those with clairsalience in order to indicate a spirit's presence or convey a message.

Mostly E - Clairsentience (Clear Feeling)

Clairsentience is the psychic ability most closely related to physical and emotional sensations. Those with strong clairsentience physically feel the energy of other beings (living or in spirit). Many clairsentient individuals make great medical intuitives, as they can connect with physical pain or illness, as well as pet psychics. Those with clairsentience can also accurately feel the "vibe" or energy of a person, place, or situation even without any context.
