About This Quiz

Within any culture resides the one true fact that our soul is the one treasure we hold. No one can take it from us. No one can claim it except for ourselves. That therefore makes it the one thing that can ultimately shatter when the world hurts us somehow. It could be anything: it could be a thief breaking into our house, or a loved one breaking our heart. When the soul breaks even a little bit, a piece of ourselves tends to die, and we then spend months -- even years -- trying to rebuild everything.

That means that naturally we often have defense mechanisms or "guardians" from within protecting us. We sometimes call them the protectors of our personality, or the actions we choose to ensure we don't get hurt somehow. We're all different, so it makes sense that everyone's defense mechanisms operate differently. What you have to ask is just what protects you? Mythological creatures often do reveal how we protect ourselves related to our personalities, and there's just something fantastic about them. Imagine you have three of those mythological creatures; what would they be? You can find out right now here in this quiz! Find out which magical monsters guard your soul from the hurt of humanity!
