There are several Spiritual Gifts tests online, here is a Baptist one that I have found that appears to have the complete list, many of the lists that I found did not seem keen to include what some people call the sign gifts, yet this is complete.

http://www.buildingchurch.net/g2s-i.htm

Anyway, here is how I did, in a general order yet several times two or three had the same score. Why not give it a go and see how you do?

1, Discerning of Spirits
2, Evangelism
3, Mercy
4, Tongues
5, Prophecy
6, Exhortation
7, Faith
8, Teaching
9, Knowledge
10, Healing
11, Intercession
12, Leadership
13, Shepherd
14, Ekballism
15, Administration
16, Apostle
17, Giving
18, Helps
19, Miracles
20, Service
21, Hospitality
22, Voluntary Poverty
23, Missionary

I think it all depends on how the writer of the survey defines each gift.

Regular Baptists or should I say conservative Baptists don't accept the miraculous gifts such as tongues, knowledge and healing period. If someone really spoke in tongues in a Baptist church they would quickly remove that person from their church as a trouble maker "disturbing" their service.

Never heard if till now either,


5. Ekballism: "The special ability that God gives certain members of the Body of Christ to cast out demons and evil spirits" in the name of Jesus Christ.
Traditionally, this gift is known as exorcism, which comes from the Greek work, exorkizo, and means to extract by an oath. In spiritual terms this infers the incantations and spells used by pagans to extract the demonic. Scripturally, this term is only used in relation to the demonic to describe the sons of Sceva's work (Acts 19:13). Wherever Jesus, an apostle, or other believer casts out a demon, the greek term is ekballo, which means to eject, pluck out, or send away. This term is command-driven, and not dependent upon a formula. In Christian life, the term ekballism demonstrates the power we have in Jesus, and minimizes the need for a formula to accomplish Christ's work. Ekballism is a term to separate the power of Christ from the confusion of spiritism around the world.
This gift is a sign gift. Jesus gave His apostles the authority to cast out demons (Mark 3:14, 15; 6:13), and the gift was used during the earliest days of the church (Acts 15:16; 16:16-18). Although western society often excuses spiritual powers with rational explanations, there is no reason to believe that evil spirits are no longer at work in our world. However, those with this gift should be discerning in their use of it, and not develop an excessive preoccupation with demons and evil spirits. The Christian focus should be on the victory won in Jesus Christ, and the salvation and abundant life He offers, not the ever-present forces of evil in this world. Scriptures: Matthew 12:22-32; Luke 10:12-20; Acts 8:5-8; 16:16-18; Romans 8:38-39; Ephesians 6:10-12.
