How Tough Is Your Spirit?

About this Quiz

Toughness is not a quality that all people possess. And even when people have it, it's not always at the same level. Which is why we want to determine just how tough your spirit is. And that's exactly what we're going to try to figure out in this quiz.

So allow us to put you through a few situations. Some of them are quite fun, some include alien abductions, and others will tell us just how you tend to deal with the not-so-nice parts of life. Answer them and we'll tell you just how strong your spirit is.
