What is your personal ikigai?

What is your personal ikigai?

"Ikigai" is a Japanese life philosophy that means your "reason for being." It's the driving force that gets you out of bed in the morning and helps you face the day with enthusiasm. Your ikigai helps you find happiness both in the present and the future.

At TerraYou, we've created this test to help you pinpoint exactly what brings you the most joy and purpose in life by identifying the unique form your ikigai takes. Through careful study, we have identified six major ikigai categories: artistic expression, connection, independence, personal development, professional success, and social responsibility.

The test identifies which of these six ikigai categories you identify with the most. They are designed as a framework to help you further explore the diverse ways in which you can find fulfilment. You can concentrate on the aspects of your life you'd like to improve or nurture, ultimately building yourself a life brimming with joy and purpose.
