The test measures the following facets:

Deviation from Doctrine: The Imperial Creed demands unwavering faith in the Emperor and obedience to its dogma. Discontent with the rigid bureaucracy, questioning the Emperor's dream of unity, or believing blind faith is a weakness all suggest a rejection of the established order, a potential first step towards deviance and rebellion.

Susceptibility to Chaos: Chaos thrives on negative emotions and forbidden knowledge. Fascination with the taboo, hearing voices, or believing individuality trumps obedience opens one to Chaos' corrupting whispers. The desire for something beyond what the Imperium offers weakens resolve and makes one vulnerable to the insidious promises of the Chaos Gods.

Iconoclasm: The Imperium venerates tradition and ancient technology. Embracing new ideas, especially those challenging authority, or believing reliance on outdated technology hinders progress, suggests dissatisfaction with the established way of doing things. Questioning authority and tradition can lead to a rejection of the imperial structure, paving the way for heresy.

Xenophilia: The Imperium views all alien races with suspicion, often as outright threats. Believing peaceful coexistence with Xenos is possible, studying their technology, or finding value in their ideologies goes against the core tenets of Imperial xenophobia. Openness to Xenos suggests a rejection of humanity's supposed superiority and the Imperium's militant approach. It is therefore heresy.

Tech-Heresy: The Adeptus Mechanicus administers all technology with an iron fist. Challenging their monopoly, experimenting with forbidden technology, or believing alien technology could benefit humanity are heretical stances. They suggest a lack of respect for the Adeptus Mechanicus' authority and their control of knowledge. Seeking alternative technological solutions or tampering with the forbidden risks unleashing catastrophic consequences.

Total Heresy: Your overall degree of heresy. Higher scores indicate a higher likelihood of being purged.
