    The Nine Muses Personality Quiz

    [​IMG]

    Which muse inspires you? Does Calliope stir you to pen poetry, or is dancing under the sway of Terpsichore a better fit?



    The Ancient Greeks believed there were nine patron goddesses of the arts and learning, and that each muse had an art or science to protect. Each muse had unique powers of inspiration, and could supposedly bring great honor and fame to the poets and artists under their influence.

    Poets and artists would traditionally invoke the help of specific muses to motivate and guide them in their artistic pursuits. Take our quiz to find out which muse influences you!

    Euterpe: Music

    Do you hear music even when it's not playing? Sounds like your muse is Euterpe, patron goddess of music. Her name means "Giver of Pleasure" and she is often depicted playing a flute. Whether you are listening to music or creating it, Euterpe lives up to her name by imparting the pleasure of melodic sound; perhaps the next time you're trying to find your favorite song on the radio or struggling to get a chord down, you'll call upon Euterpe for help and inspiration.

    Calliope, Epic Poetry

    Do you live and breathe poetry? If so, Calliope, patron goddess of epic poetry, may well be your muse. She is often depicted holding a writing tablet and wearing a golden crown, for she is the oldest of the muses and their leader. Her name means "The Fair Voiced," but Calliope inspires eloquence in writing. The next time you feel compelled to write (especially something "big"), call upon Calliope for inspiration and perhaps you'll pen your greatest work yet.

    Do you find any excuse to bust out your dance moves? Yeah? Then your muse is probably Terpsichore, patron goddess of dancing. Her name means "The Whirler," and she must be exhausted because she usually appears seated with a lyre. Since you seem to express yourself most naturally through dancing, perhaps the next time you cut the rug you'll call upon Terpsichore to give you the gift of graceful movement and some inspiration for some new moves.

    Completely incorrect

    Polyhymnia: Scared Poetry
    Is spirituality an important part of your life? If so, Polyhymnia, the patron goddess of sacred poetry, may well be your muse. Her name means "She of Many Hymns" and is often depicted with a pensive look upon her face. Polyhymnia is said to bring immortal distinction to writers, so perhaps the next time you feel like expressing your spirituality through words, try calling upon Polyhymnia for inspiration.

    For a cute highschoolish quiz I have to say I'd agree.
    I feel most creative when unhappy.

    Erato: love poetry
    Do you swoon over love poems and romance? If so, Erato, patron goddess of love poetry, may be your muse. Her name means "The Lovely," and she is often depicted with a lyre and a crown of roses. In love? Have a crush? Perhaps you should call upon Erato for inspiration to write your sweetie a love poem.



    Fits for me. :)

    Yeah, definitely the same here. I can't write anything unless I'm unhappy.

    Love the gift of laughter? Thalia, patron goddess of comedy, may be the reason. Her name means "The Flourishing" because she brings fame to those she favors. She is often depicted with a comic mask and a cane (perhaps to drag un-funny people off stage...). The next time you're enthralling those around you with a hilarious story, perhaps you can thank Thalia for good comedic timing and delivery

    AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!

    Melpomeme: Tragedy

    Do you have a taste for sad songs and tragedies? If so, your muse may be Melpomene, patron goddess of tragedy. Melpomene is often represented by a tragic mask and is sometimes depicted with a crown of cypress leaves and a club. Despite her tragic side, Melpomene means "The Songstress" because her chanting and singing inspires listeners. You are likely to be a firm believer in finding beauty everywhere, even in the darkness of tragedies. The next time you find yourself growing too maudlin, perhaps you could call upon Melpomene to help you find music in your sorrow.
