If you score fewer than 8 points, you may not actually have a grace. But if you do, it might be the Calming grace. Or it might be the Intellect grace. Either way, you need other people to protect you, and you prefer to take the path of least resistance. You have a calm countenance that soothes everyone around you. You excel at puzzles, solitaire, and knitting, and you are probably very well-read. Calming grace celebrity: Nurse Helda Intellect grace celebrity: Prince Raffin
