This table shows the meaning of each possible result:

a Black Mage

You are the powerful Black Mage. You use a stave, but you should avoid melee combat, as you are quite frail. However, no other mage uses offensive spells like you can. You focus on harmful spells to assault foes, and you have a variety of hexes to damage opponents. Whether you're sizzling them with flames or freezing them with ice, you take enemies out before they can harm your team.

a Blue Mage

You are the versatile Blue Mage. You start off without knowing much magic, but you learn many spells throughout your quests. You easily grasp the methods adversaries use, and employ their own tactics against them; most of your arsenal comes from magic your foes have used. In addition to your adaptable spells, you are one of the most physically gifted mages, and can fight competently with a blade. Though sometimes underestimated, you prove a useful addition to any team.

a Red Mage

You are the multi-talented Red Mage. You aren't a master of any group of spells; rather, you are a jack-of-all-trades who can fill any role competently. You harness both White and Black Magic to heal comrades and harm enemies. Additionally, you are more skilled in brawls than other mages, and brandish a sword and armor. Though you don't specialize in any one area, your ever-changing combat role will benefit any team.

a Time Mage

You are the crafty Time Mage. You often wield daggers and wear simple robes, but that doesn't decrease your combat versatility. You brandish Time Magic, powerful spells that can hasten your team's actions, slow your enemies, or completely freeze your adversaries in time. This makes you an excellent ally to have in battle. Additionally, skilled Time Mages may learn powerful offensive spells such as Gravity and Meteor, making them competent warriors even when fighting alone.

a White Mage

You are the medically talented White Mage. You fill one of the most important roles in your team, as you skillfully utilize healing magic. In addition to treating wounds, you learn some spells to shield your party from further damage. You brandish a stave, and you aren't the physically weakest of the mages, but you're not the strongest, either. Most groups will travel with at least one White Mage; no one is better at fending off an early demise.

a Summoner

You are a powerful Summoner (also called an Evoker or Caller). Though you are physically frail, you are talented with whips. However, your real strength lies in your ability to call forth powerful creatures to help you battle. Theses creatures, sometimes called Aeons, Espers, or simply Summons, have a variety of effects and attacks, leaving you with many options to choose from. Summons are very powerful, but quickly deplete your stamina, so ensure you select the right beast for the job.

Now that you have your result, check out the abilities and artwork of the numerous types of mages!
