About This Quiz

People always seem to go on about cat people versus dog people. Cat people are uptight and reserved, dog people argue, while cat people argue that dog people are messy and obnoxious. While these criticisms both may have some merit, what about all the other animals? What about rabbit people, turtle people, or bird people, for instance? 

It turns out, you can find out a lot about yourself when you identify your inner animal personality. Sure, you may feel like a dog person today, but what about if deep down, you're a cat? Or perhaps you're actually a snake? A tarantula? Fortunately, you won't have to give up your pet when you uncover your results. After all, dogs, cats and even snakes can live together in harmony. Instead, you might find out that you need to spend more time outdoors (dog personality), or perhaps should invest in an armchair for quiet contemplation (cat personality). Maybe you'll find out that your intellect and guile is wasted at your current job and you should actually be heading a Fortune 500 company (snake personality). 

Since the enduring dog versus cat debate may never die, it's time to ask another, bigger question. What type of animal personality are you? Answer the following 30 questions to find out!
