About This Quiz

Since the 1940s, the Myers-Briggs personality test has been used to classify individuals based upon their traits. With each four-letter combination, a classification can let you know if you are more introverted or extroverted, more nurturing or feeling, or more perceptive than judging. However, many people believe that animals have similar personality traits to humans, and we thought it would be fun to see which animal your Myers-Briggs type makes you resemble the most. 

As you paw, claw or nest your way through our questions, we are going to try to figure out your personality type and the animal that you have the most in common with. We will need to know how you react to certain situations, how you present yourself in your everyday life and how you feel about some of the world's most popular creatures. Once we get a good feel of your qualities, we'll correlate your combination to the known personality traits of animals from around the world. 

While lions love their naps and their alone time, wolves need to express themselves and belong in a pack. As long as we have a heartbeat and an attitude, every living creature resembles each other in both large and small ways. How do you see yourself fitting into the animal kingdom? Answer our questions, and we'll let you know!
