In the Persian Myth, the deeds and sins of each soul are weighted, which determines its destination. If the soul has done more good deeds than sins, than it goes to heaven. If the soul has done an equal amount of good deeds and sins, then it goes to Purgatory. If the should has sinned more than doing good deeds, then it goes to hell.
In the Algonquin Myth souls are also sorted into the good and the evil, but their destinations are different from the Persians. Instead of 3 locations that souls go to, there are only 2, but only one is fully described. While the souls travel to the afterlife in their canoes, a storm comes and sweeps away all evil souls. This leaves only the good ones, which eventually make it to the island of the blessed, or their heaven. It is not said what happens to the evil or sinful souls.
In the Tibetan Death Myth, souls have many opportunities to be sorted and distributed into different eternal resting places, much like that of Persia. The soul first experiences a light of emptiness, and is expected to bathe in it. The soul may try to flee, but fate holds it back as in Persia.
