▷ Homestuck Title Test
Yes, I know, another title test seems pretty redundant at this point. A lot of people enjoy thepageofhopes’s Homestuck Title Test, and they have good reason to! It’s very well thought-out and quite consistent. But since the creation of that test, new information has been revealed in the comic itself that calls into question some of the assumptions made, and of course, there’s always the sticky situation of fanon titles. I wanted to take a title test that adhered to what we know of canon Classpects as strictly as possible while still basing its analysis in valid psychological assessments. And then I thought, well, I’m kind of a hobbyist psychologist, so…
Here it is, a brand-new 3.5-part Homestuck Title Test!
Before we begin, you should know that this page is subject to change at any time, and with little prior explanation. I’m a capricious perfectionist. My apologies.
One last thing: this test was a lot of fun to put together, and I might not be the only person curious about this sort of thing, so I’ve included explanations of almost every choice I made about the workings of the assessments. But don’t worry! You totally do not have to read any of that if you don’t want to. I’ve kept them out of this main post and instead written them out on separate pages, which I’ve linked to at the relevant portions of this test. So every now and then, you might see a bit of italics including a link. These are entirely unnecessary for figuring out your title, but I thought I’d give the option to people who would like to know.
There are two portions of the test, one for Class and one for Aspect. Between them, they comprise three psychological assessments (and one very brief self-reflection.) Before we get into the test proper, though, how about you go take the tests and save your results somewhere? You’ll need to take all three tests to figure out your Title. Make sure you save all of your results. I would recommend pasting them into one giant document, but handle it however you wish. And for accuracy’s sake, please be honest!
- Jungian Cognitive Functions Test
- Triarchic Intelligence Theory Test
- HEXACO Personality Trait Test
- Morler’s Maturity Test
Now onto the tabulation of your results!
First, we will determine your Class. For the purposes of this test, the Classes are assumed to follow these active/passive pairs, courtesy of bladekindeyewear:
- Purpose - Active - Passive
- — Standard Classes —
- Know - Mage - Seer
- Change - Witch - Heir
- Destroy - Prince – Bard
- Create - Maid - Sylph
- Steal - Thief - Rogue
- Exploit - Knight - Page
- — Master Classes —
- Embody - Lord – Muse
This test only covers the Standard Classes. I am of the opinion that SBURB/SGRUB/whatever only assigns the Master Classes in the event of a two-player session or under other similarly strange circumstances, so I won’t be including them in this test. If you want to have a Master Class, that’s fine! You’ll just have to make that decision for yourself, because I honestly don’t know how to test for a Class with all the skills and no apparent weaknesses. Now, onto the test itself.
Let’s begin with the Jungian Cognitive Functions Test. You’ll notice your results list 8 functions. However, not all of them need be analyzed for the purposes of this test. What we want to look at are the 4 Perceiving functions. If you aren’t familiar with Jungian terminology, this essentially means the functions that describe how you gather and act upon information. These are the iNtuitive and the Sensory functions, and you can pick them out of the 8 by looking for the ones that start with either N or S. Ignore the others that start with T and F – they aren’t relevant for this test.
So now you’ve narrowed your list of 8 to a list of 4. This list should consist of the functions Ne, Ni, Se, and Si. You’ll need to find the one with the highest percentage of those 4.
Now look at your Triarchic Intelligence test results. These tell you how you best apply your knowledge: Analytically, Creatively, or Practically. Take note of your highest score here, too.
Once you’ve figured out your results, consult the Class Table.
Go to the quadrant headed by your dominant Perceiving function. Once you’ve found it, locate the Class that corresponds with your preferred Triarchic Intelligence. For example, my dominant Perceiving function is Ne, so I could be a Witch, Prince, or Knight. My preferred Triarchic Intelligence is Analytic, indicating the Witch Class. Therefore, I am a Witch!
In the event that your Triarchic Intelligence results assign you a Class that you disagree with based on gender restrictions, feel free to select instead the Class indicated by your second-highest Triarchic Intelligence. So, for example, if my dominant cognitive function were Si and my preferred Triarchic Intelligence were Creative but I really wasn’t feeling the codpiece Class, then I might decide to label myself a Page instead because my second-highest Triarchic Intelligence is Practical, or whatever it happens to be.
That’s it! You now have your (not very) official God Tier Class. Keep reading to determine your Aspect!

Next, we will determine your Aspect. This is where the HEXACO Personality Traits and Morler’s Maturity Test come in. The name ‘HEXACO’ is an acronym for the 6 categories assessed, each of which is associated with a primary Aspect pair:
- Honesty/Humility: fair/sincere vs. secretive/ambitious – Light/Void
- Emotionality: sensitive/dependent vs. secure/confident – Blood/Breath
- eXtroversion: extrospective/bold vs. introspective/reserved – Mind/Heart
- Agreeableness: friendly/compassionate vs. vengeful/angry – Hope/Rage
- Conscientiousness: efficient/organized vs. easy-going/careless – Space/Time
- Openness to experience: inventive/curious vs. consistent/cautious – Life/Doom
Each of these 6 categories contains 4 subcategories that paint a fuller picture of the trait than simply a single score. In this test, each Aspect borrows two subtraits from each of two other traits.
Your Aspect also depends upon your maturity level. If you are mentally and emotionally mature, then your most prominent personality trait accurately describes your Aspect. If you lack either mental or emotional maturity, however, then your current behavior is likely not the right direction in which you need to develop! In this case, your Aspect is the opposite of the one indicated by your most prominent personality trait.
In order to determine your maturity level, read this summary of Morler’s Levels of Maturity. Beginning at the first level, determine whether or not you have surpassed this level of maturity. If you feel that you have, move onto the next level. If not, then that is your maturity level for the purposes of this test.
If your maturity level is Level 1, 2, or 3, your Aspect should challenge you to mature.
If your maturity level is Level 4, 5, or 6, your Aspect should support your growth.
Now that you have your HEXACO scores and your maturity level, you can determine your Aspect. To do so, simply visit this website and input your scores as directed. It’ll give you your most likely Aspect and save you from having to do a considerable amount of really awful math, plus you can save your results at a unique URL that you can return to in case you forget your Title or something.
I’ll run my own scores through the site as an example. After plugging in all my individual HEXACO scores and my maturity level as defined by Morler’s outline, this is what I get. Combined with my previous results, my Title is revealed as the Witch of Light!
The Aspect pairs and the shared subtraits (and the rest of the mechanics behind this portion of the Title Test) can be found here, if you’re curious!
And there you have it! Your very own Mythological Role. Keep in mind that while your Class is unlikely to change with repeated test-taking, your Aspect may vary. I would recommend taking the Aspect portion of the test a few times over a couple of days, if you want to be really accurate. And of course, there’s a certain sense of narrative causality that I can’t possibly hope to recognize here. If situations demand that you be a Lord or a Muse, go ahead! If as a Knight you feel like you’d fulfill certain thematic trends in your life, have at it. I’m not going to claim that I can account for every circumstance with this test.
Note that if you have a canon title, that by no means indicates that you’re identical to that character! What it might mean, assuming I’ve constructed this test correctly, is that you and that character tend to think in somewhat similar ways and might share either a personality trait or some values. That’s it, nothing more in-depth than that.
If you’re looking for more information on a specific Class or Aspect, I would recommend this post!
And that’s all I’ve got for now, though I reserve the right to edit this at any time. If you have any further questions or if you want to critique something about my method, feel free to message me! After all, I am only a hobbyist psychologist. Any feedback is welcome!
