About This Quiz

Your Myers-Briggs personality type can help you understand your personality and temperament on a deeper level. Invented in the 1940s, the famous psychological exam can tell you exactly how you approach the world and the traits you use to do it. Lucky for you, it also can help you understand which type of household pet you're most similar to, be it a dog, cat, goldfish or hamster.

While our animal quiz might not be made from the same stuff as conventional psychological tests, we do feel that the answers you provide will give away both your Myers-Briggs type and your inner beast. It's the correlation of the two that sees you pawing or clawing your way through each day. Whether you're introspective or outgoing, trusting or not, we'll find the pet that speaks to your soul.

Make sure you use your animal instincts to choose the answers you feel represent you best. Will you be purring, swimming, running on a wheel or getting a belly rub when we're done? Take this quiz to find out which domesticated pet you really are!
