motivational gifts survey

Thank you for visiting gifttest.org. The motivational gifts survey is the first statistically validated instrument of its kind. This survey can be used in organizations and churches to provide leaders with a tool to help place people in positions that best suit their God-given gifts. This can also help you learn more about yourself and identify areas that match your abilities and interests where you will feel most comfortable, effective, and satisfied. You will receive the most accurate and useful results if you think carefully about each item and read each response carefully.
