About This Quiz

History has a ton of interesting tales to tell, but in one regard it really falls short - real history is lacking in monsters. As much as we want to hear about the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot, there's not a lot of evidence that we've ever been graced with fantastic beasts. Fortunately, mythology is up to its swords and sandals in monsters of every kind - terrible beasts that breathe fire or can turn you to stone with a glance. Some are giants, others are incredibly small, but very few of them are pleasant to be around. It's the heroes of mythology who have to take on these monsters and save the day, which tends to happen more often than not. 

The creatures of mythology often represent some of the darker sides of humanity, and there are some lessons to be learned in the challenges they represent for the heroes that fight them. But what do they represent for you? Which of these mythological beasts is most like you when you lose your cool? Everyone gets angry sometimes, right?
