About This Quiz

If there's one thing we're good at as a species it's comparing ourselves to other species. You can be hungry like a wolf or sly like a fox. You can lie like a dog and be quiet as a mouse. You might be as brave as a lion or as stubborn as a mule. There's a never-ending list of animals and the qualities we ascribe to them that can be applied to humans and the way we act from time to time. Some good and some bad. All of them are meant to make for a better visual, though, a better comparison of who we are and why we act a certain way. 

Ideally, if people are making these comparisons about us it's for good reasons. You can't go wrong with being told you're strong like a bull. But you want to avoid being told you have the manners of a pig. There is a middle ground, though. There are animals that aren't always bad and aren't always good, those mischievous creatures that are sometimes troublemakers but still clever enough to be admired. Sometimes those make for good comparisons, especially when your dark side comes to light. Want to know which mischievous beast you match up with when your dark side comes out? Take the quiz and see!
