Fate versus free will

Use your free choice to find today's candidate with this interactive test

Test created by Mariano Tomatis

Are we victims of inescapable fate, or do we really have the power to create our own destiny? That is an age-old question. This experiment is intended to evaluate the effect of a delicate balance: the attitude of obeying rules and the one of choosing by free will.

The six steps will deal both with free choices and instructions to be followed. From the beginning of the test, a character has been chosen as today's candidate. You will not be informed about his (or her's) identity: you will discover her (or him) at the end of the experiment, by clicking the link given at the 6th step.
