Couldn't resist this quiz I saw at MysteryMommy: which Greek god/goddess are you?

But I'm a little surprised and puzzled at the result I got:

You are Apollo! Apollo was the god of prophesy, music and healing.
He is famous for his skill with the lyre, and that he was responsible for the downfall of Achilles, a great hero during the Trojan War.


  • Why are you puzzled?

  • Hermes
    You are Hermes! Hermes was the messenger god.Hermes was known for his helpfulness to mankind, both in his capacity as immortal herald and on his own initiative. When Perseus set out to face the Gorgon Medusa, Hermes aided him in the quest. According to one version of the myth, he loaned the hero his own magic sandals, which conferred upon the wearer the ability to fly.

  • Athena:
    goddess of wisdom and useful arts and prudent warfare.

    I'd rather be Zeus. :D

  • Heh heh, who knew we were so -- um -- elevated?

    Why am I puzzled? I dunno. I guess I've never felt any particular affinity for Apollo. And except for my favorite color being golden yellow, I can't see how my answers would have led to Apollo.

    Anyway, this whole thing is hilarious. I love hearing all your results. I'd like to see a similar quiz on Norse gods. Or Catholic saints, heh heh.

  • Humph! I am Hera. Obviously that quiz is a scam ;-)

  • I am also Hermes, but only because there was no d) none of the above. They didn't even have my favorite color option. I hate to say it, but I don't think this quiz is very encompassing. Or maybe I'm just not a godly person.
