About This Quiz

Your Myers-Briggs personality type is a sure fire way to tell you a lot about yourself. Invented in the 1940s, the famous psychological battery can tell you exactly how you approach the world and the traits you use to do it. However, what you may not know is that your intricate personality type also relates to a number of animals. In this case, the cat or the dog. 

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. We believe that it is the correlation of the two that sees you pawing or clawing through your days. Once we figure out your personality type, finding out your animal will be a breeze! 

As you go through our questions, use your animal instincts and your either introverted or extroverted ways to choose the answer you feel represents you best. When you've finished, we'll tally them up, interpret your results with scientific precision and give you our peer-reviewed result. Will you be purring or getting a belly rub when we're done? Scroll down to find out which domesticated pet you really are!
