About This Quiz

According to the Cambridge Handbook of Personality Psychology, your personality is defined as "the set of habitual behaviors, cognitions and emotional patterns that evolve from biological and environmental factors." They are broken up into factors known as the "Big Five," which together, constitute the human's personality. 

When you think about it, humans are just one of the many different types of animals, and if we have personalities, then why can't the other animals who we share this planet with. While we all have our unique personalities, many of us share our traits not only with other humans but also with other animals.

Some animals immediately stand out for the way that they have been portrayed both in literature and in film. Snakes, for example, are said to be opportunistic and untrustworthy, eagles are seen as confident and brave, while owls are seen as patient and intelligent. 

Which one of the many animals in the kingdom matches your personality? Well, if you take this quiz, not only will we tell you which animal it is, but we'll also tell you what traits they are and how you two are alike. If you would like to find out what animal has a similar personality as you, then you can take this quiz!
