Ben & Matthew react to the LegendFiction Quiz to unlock the magic of storytelling

Mar 23, 2023 | Export, Latest

Ben and Matthew take the Wheel of Legends quiz to discover their writer type. The quiz has four categories: Visioneers, Chalimancers, Wanderiers, and Excalibyrn. Ben and the speaker enjoyed how it looks exciting and epic. They then dive into the quiz and discover their writer type.

Matthew came up Wandery and Ben a Chalimancer – but one of them struggled with the outcome. The quiz shows a spectrum, which they can use to see where their results fall. It’s mean to be a fun way for authors to discover more about their creative side and what type of writer they are.

The hosts of ‘Echoes of Eternity’ chat about their results:

  • The Wandery is an imaginative explorer who seeks to understand the meaning of the world and their place in it. They often excel in the genres of fantasy and science fiction.
  • The Chalimancer is inspired by the caregiver and ruler archetypes and often spends a lot of time developing their characters’ relationships. They are scholars of insight grounded in reality and draw from their own experiences to create compelling stories.

A personality test…for authors? What would it be like to get sorted into your literary Hogwarts house? Ben and Matthew take LegendFiction’s author-type quiz and discuss styles of creativity and the unrepeatable (and necessary) genius of all those called to create.

A personality test…for authors? What would it be like to get sorted into your literary Hogwarts house? Ben and Matthew take LegendFiction’s author-type quiz and discuss styles of creativity and the unrepeatable (and necessary) genius of all those called to create.

About the Show: Echoes of Eternity is a podcast focused on fostering discussion about modern popular fiction in a way that puts us in touch with our deepest longings and how they direct our hearts to God. Each episode we share insights and ideas about the shows, movies, books, and music that make up our storytelling landscape and weigh their merits against the moral backdrop of the Christian worldview.

Some quotes:

“I’ve got a friend, Rebecca Loomis, who’s an author and a designer, and she wrote this book, The Whitewashed Tomb, which I recommend everybody go check out. But we called on the phone, and we were talking about writing and creating, and it just kind of come up that both of us had written things. And so we sent each other copies of things and she wrote this note in the front: Ben, never stop creating stories and art. And I just remember being so encouraged by that simple note that she put in there. And I wrote a similar note in hers where it was like she could see in it and acknowledge that there was something that I was in the process of birthing that was important… Because it’s often a lonely road and it can be rife with challenges and so it’s worth having that encouragement to go and make something and code tell a story because they’re a way that we communicate meaning to each other. It’s a way that we sort of come into contact with those deeper experiences of life and it’s just how can we not look at that and say it’s good?”

“[This quiz] reinforces the idea that we have each person’s unrepeatability, that there is no clone of you. Even twins have their distinct differences, and it’s worth speaking your heart to the world, and it’s worth sharing. And so for anybody who’s got that idea where they’re like, I don’t know, it’s kind of dumb, and this kind of thing, it’s probably not the world really needs you to bring yourself to it. And there are people who are waiting for that beautiful thing that you have to give and who are suffering without it, who need you to speak life and to challenge and to encourage and to uphold.”

“Let’s take a minute to encourage the listeners. And I think that’s part of what makes [your unique creativity] beautiful and part of what makes it important. And there’s something of your heart that you kind of give back to the world and something of your unique perspective and the unique way that God has worked on you and in your life that can be of value to others.
