About This Quiz

If you were an animal, which one would you be? Humans are animals, but we know our own nature too well. Instead of comparing ourselves to others, in this quiz we're going to figure out which animal is your kindred spirit. You might think you have more in common with a gorilla, but is it possible you're more of a sloth? 

As we go through this kindred spirit animal quiz, we are going to do our best to figure out with which animal you share the most traits. You might have the instincts of an apex predator, but you might have the motivation of a sea slug. The only way to figure out which animal embodies your true spirit is to answer these questions as honestly as you can. 

After we figure out which animals you like the most, the behaviors you share with our furry friends, and the inner workings of your animal instincts, we are confident we will be able to figure out which of the world's animals is your kindred spirit. Once you know, you'll have a whole new way to approach your life. You'll know if you are meant to hibernate or fly high through the sky.
