Embarking on a journey of self-discovery can sometimes lead to unexpected destinations, and it's important to occasionally pause and reflect on the path trodden. This assessment is crafted to guide introspection on your current affiliations and the impact they have on your sense of identity and autonomy. By exploring your engagement with your community, whether you feel like a 'Drone', a 'Hippie', a 'Virgin', or a 'Burner', you can gain insights into the dynamics of your group interactions. The goal is to ensure that your personal agency remains intact and that your involvement is enriching, not restrictive. Through a series of carefully designed questions, you can begin to discern the fine line between a supportive network and an environment that may require a second look.

Being married to a Malignant Narcissist is the same thing. They'll own everything about you and you end up nothing more than a shell. Your family friends, hobbies are systematically rejected as inferior. You'll be uncomfortable in any setting that doesn't revolved around the Malignant Narcissist (cult leader).

Like 'Lovelyclock' I took the quiz to find out if my experiences when i was catholic, would show I was in a cult.

Apparently, I was in a cult. No surprise.

I don't really agree with your point there, Dusk Midnight.
Being in a cult is soul crushing, it takes away your identity and all of your social skills. Your mind gets brainwashed, and your dreams and goals are taken away.

I had a dream of being a scientist, but my cult had me believe that money comes if you use your mind to attract it. Therefore, I saw no point in school (which my cult leader told me was a bad place), and I almost quit. I remember my caregivers became very frusturated with me because I wanted to be a school drop out.

Luckily, I got out of the cult in the end, and now I am working on myself. I get depressed and anxious at times, but that is probably the process of healing after a cult

I think being in a cult is cool because in fact I'm in one with my brothers and sisters and we call each other brother and sister because we're a second family to each other and only we know what the others are going through at home because we pretty much all go through the same thing in life but our cult only defends each other and can be the kind of people that will injure you if you stare or throw the first lick to one of us are:Freddy,Rosie,Molly,Dawn,and pickles Midnight are all in the cult with me and yes they all have the same last name don't get suspicious because if you do I will personally,RIP YOUR LUNGS OUT OF YOUR CHEST!
