The Free Will and Determinism (FAD) plus scale tests your belief in free will and related philosophical positions. Do you believe in free will? I know that’s a very vague and difficult question to answer.
One of the reasons why the question of whether or not we have free will is so extensively debated is that it’s tied to other closely-related concepts such as determinism and fatalism. This test will give you an idea of the extent to which you believe (or don’t believe) that your life is in your own hands.
This FAD-plus scale is an improvement over the previous widely used FAD scale. It tests the degree to which you believe in free will and related concepts. This test will tell you to what extent you believe life events are controllable. determinable, and predictable.
Taking the free will test
This test consists of 27 items and you have to choose one answer on a 5-point scale ranging from ‘Disagree strongly’ to ‘Agree strongly’. Your personal information will not be collected and your results will not be shared. The test takes around 5 minutes to complete.
