Past life quizzes claim to provide a description of who quiz-taker was in a past life. Most quizzes make this claim for entertainment purposes and produce past lives that include famous people from the past, as well as comedic descriptions of how people once lived.
Most entertainment quizzes ask only a handful of multiple choice questions and provide a limited number of answers.
A few quizzes claim to provide a true glimpse into the past life of the quiz-taker, although most of these quizzes look similar to the quizzes provided for entertainment purposes. Most pseudoscience practitioners, such as astrologers, that offer knowledge about past lives perform analysis of birth dates and other information rather than offering multiple choice quizzes.
