* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Heroic Myth Index
[/COLOR][/SIZE][/B]



Name: ________________________________


Directions:

 You may use columns 1 & 2 to indicate on your Greek gods’ behalf (and /or your own) how often you think they would agree with each statement as descriptive of themselves by writing in the blank beside the statement number:

1 = Almost never descriptive of me
2 = Rarely descriptive of me
3 = Sometimes descriptive of me
4 = Usually descriptive of me
5 = Almost always descriptive of me



 Work as quickly as is comfortable; your first reaction is often the best indicator.
 Please do not skip any items, since doing so might invalidate your results. If you and your group can’t decide, just make your best determination and go on.

Heroic Myth Index Scoring Directions


Directions:
 Under the name of each archetype are six blanks with numbers corresponding to the questions on the HMI. Transfer your responses (1-5) to the columns below. For example, if your answer to question 17 was 5 (“Almost Always”), put a 5 in the blank next to 17, the first number in the column under “Innocent.”

 When you have put a number in each blank, then add up the columns. Your total score for each archetype will be between 6 and 30.

 When you have completed scoring the instrument, you will be able to see which archetypes your gods seem to represent.

 Remember that no archetype is any “better” or “worse” than any other; each has its own characteristics, gifts, lessons, etc., and each can be represented by a “good” or a “bad” character.
