About This Quiz

The Myers-Briggs personality types are used in a variety of settings, the world over. Developed off of theories of Carl Jung, the Myers-Briggs personality types rate testers on a series of qualities, determined by a set of questions intended to tease out their hidden qualities. These types, which are represented by four-letter acronyms for the four quadrants of personality qualities determined by the creators of the test and Carl Jung, are used by some companies in hiring decisions, some matchmakers and dating sites, and even private clubs looking for the "right sort of recruit". We're pretty sure it's the secret method used by the sorting hat at Hogwarts.

One thing that the Myers-Briggs personality test won't tell you is your animal profile, specifically if you are a wolf, bear or lion. This is why some human resources professionals use additional tests to determine the qualities of potential recruits, but they need not do that. The truth is that we can determine if you are a wolf, bear or lion just by using our patented modified version of the Myers-Briggs test. That's right! Without having to take two tests or, frankly, look in a mirror, you can find out which of these majestic animals you are. Give it a try! It's the best quiz for you, paws down.
