About This Quiz

Before the Myers-Briggs type of personality testing, there was Carl Jung. While Jung tended to work with words and memories, the Myers-Briggs test focused more on the way people think and interact with the world. Although we will use a lot of words to figure out your Myers-Briggs type, we will also get a glimpse into your animal instincts. 

Although we do not expect you actually to howl or growl while answering our questions, we do hope that you'll tap into the unconscious way that you conduct yourself. To compare your personality type to those found in the animal kingdom, we'll need to know what you have in common with those that live in the wild. You might picture yourself as a polar bear, but are you really more like a parrot? 

With 16 types of personalities on the Myers-Briggs scale, it will take some careful analysis and comparison. Try to answer our questions without thinking too hard, and we'll make sure to average your responses fairly. Then, we'll let you know which animal you live your life most like. 

Your personality animal is not your spirit animal, but it's just as important. Knowing your Myers-Briggs animal can give you a brand new way to look at yourself. Will you see fur, scales or feathers looking back at you?
