About This Quiz
Your soul is what makes you you. Because of that, it's important to pay attention to how you nurture it. There was once a time, and you'll still see evidence of it, when it was "cool" to say you had a dark soul, or that you had no soul at all. Why were people bragging about having no soul? In some cultures, that's a very serious accusation. But it was during a time when self-deprecating humor was considered cute and made people — especially celebrities — seem relatable. At one point, the word "adorkable" was used a lot to describe people like that. But thank goodness that time of internet history is behind us.
Since your soul is so important to who you are, it's nice to have another being that you feel really reflects it. The various horse breeds around the world are perfect for this role. Horses are strong, powerful and downright beautiful. Of course, some come with more hardships than others, but you know what? So do people! No being on earth has it easy, so your soul will not be reflected by anything that resembles perfection. Which horse breed reflects your soul? Answer these questions to find out!
