About This Quiz

Each member of the animal kingdom offers a unique set of characteristics and qualities that can serve as a guide for our lives. Our spirit animal will likely resonate with the way we tend to go about our daily activities, highlighting personality traits that are strengths for us.

For example, if you're someone who flits around from one thing to another, barely ever fully arriving in a place before feeling the need to move on again, the butterfly seems like it might be a good fit for you. When you tell us that you are a very social person and someone who knows everyone's business, we'll be assured of this connection.

Maybe you're someone who tends to take their time and prefers to keep things nice and mellow. If that's the case, but you're likely to get into a frenzy if anyone threatens a loved one in any way, the bear seems like a good match for your energy. If you sleep through most of the winter, then it's a done deal.

If you consider yourself to be an intellectual and someone who generally looks at the big picture, the owl might be a good fit for you. If you're at your best late at night and you enjoy spending time on your own, then this choice is looking very good indeed.

Off we go to find the creature that fits you deep down in your soul.
