You don't unless you have a force sensitive character give you a Force test. However, no one does these publicly anymore due to the threat of being executed, and the time it takes to test every single person asking for tests, so your best bet is if your faction has a force sensitive player who tests faction members.
He's unhelpfully expressing his frustration over all the newbies who join with the sole intention to become a Jedi. There's a lot more to SWC and it does get annoying. :P
Anyhow, you would have to find out from your faction whether or not they have anyone available to test players. But for every race, the chance is so slim that you should probably base your decisions on what else you would like to do since it's extremely unlikely your character is Force Sensitive.
People who's first question after joining is "how can I be FS", or "how do I know I'm FS", or "how do I become a Jedi", should do everyone a favour and quit at once. It's frustrating and annoying to see that people only want super-powerful characters. Usually they only join because they think Jedi are super powerful (while they forget that there are countless of ways to skin a Jedi). Also, such people usually are terrible RPers with the force, just my own experience.
And yes Syn, it IS annoying. All these kids who think they're "Annie"... pfffffsh! Humbug I say!
I rather be like Han Solo, least he was really cool and not dependant on some weird energy field to be cool!
And I say, Zantek, although I have little experience here, that it's all right to be curious about your character. The best thing to do, however, is to go different routes with your character.
By clicking on "Members" on the top right of your screen, then "Faction" under the "Manage" heading, you should be on your way to finding a faction. Once in a faction, you should be able to find some pretty neat-o (excuse the lingo) people and things to do. Choose your faction wisely; then again, you can always quit if you don't like it.
Hal, Rika, To each his own. If he aspires to be a Jedi, let him. Even Anakin, not knowing he was force Sensitive and realized he could do other things in his carerr, was hoping to be a Jedi. Nothing wrong with that.
I do agree however that if someone plays this game with out keeping an open mind on this, And only want to achieve Force Sensitivity, then they may as well quit becouse the chances of being force sensitive is slim. And even if you do become FS at a later point, you will not be as powerful.
Remember also Boba Fett and Jango Fett and even General Grievous were all not FS and they were able to fight and Kill Jedi.
As far as a faction to join... You could join the Jedi Praxium. They have both non-FS and FS characters. This way both your possible paths are presented to you and they support the RA.
If your looking to be active you could even join one of the Riviera Groups. They seem pretty active.
Regarding Force Sensitivity, I think it should exist in the game, it is after all Star Wars. If there is no Force Sensitivity, then I should just play a Star Trek Sim( I dont mean anything by this, please dont flame me for it). But I do understand all the Vets frustration and I do think the odds of becoming Force Sensitive should be much lower than it is now. And even display a BIG BIG Warning about Force Sensitivity on the Join Page this way all new members are aware of what is to come of their character and stop trying to achieve and worry only about the Force.

I'm new to scw and i don't know a lot of things but (for my experience in other star wars games) a jedi isn't an overpowered charecter in his firsts steps of the force. A jedi master possibly yes, but he's a master of the force. Equally for the dark side althogh their powers are more combat oriented.
