Rationality Quiz

Rationality quiz is designed to evaluate your logical reasoning, how clear sighted and fact-based you are, and compare your results to everyone who did this questionnaire. Rationality is the propensity for factual and objective view of the world, based on empirical knowledge rather than anecdotal talk and opinion. This rationality quiz will assess your intellectual honesty, your critical thinking and your willingness to question everything, including your own convictions and beliefs.

Adhering to scientific method and verifiable evidence rather than dogmatic and opinionated ideas is what distinguishes irrational thinking from rational. One of the finest methods in testing rationality is how quickly you are able to notice your own confirmation bias.

Rationality reflects in our decisions, and the lack of it leads to cognitive biases, delusional reality, misinterpretation of important facts and overall cognitive underperformance in both intelligence and judgement. Our rationality quiz will compare the level of your reasoning and coherence to everyone who did this test in the past twelve months. Remember to answer the questionnaire honestly for the most accurate results.

Why rational reasoning is essential for an open mind?

There is a good reason why only skeptics are said to be truly open-minded. When people accept a certain belief or conviction, they close the doors to all ideas, all theories and all philosophies that argue otherwise. This is what we call a narrow-minded view of the world.

A skeptic simply reserves his judgement, and exercises no certainty in any idea, or any theory, unless easily verifiable. This way, every idea and every theory, has a potential to be true in his view, provided it’s able to demonstrate its own validity. Being convinced in a certain conviction only demonstrates narrow mindedness, and that’s something an open-minded person should always avoid.

Rationality is thus essential in finding the truth. That doesn’t mean a rational person can’t have beliefs and presumptions. The difference between a rational person and an irrational one, is that rational people are aware of their beliefs and presumptions, while irrational people will take them for granted.
