About This Quiz

Speaking of interesting exercises in psychology, it's a uniquely human ability to sit at the top of the food chain and marvel at all the creatures beneath us. Although we have the power to eat most of them, we also have the ability to relate to them and to view them with fascination. Throughout history, cultures have placed symbolic value on a number of animals, and the ancient Celts were no different. 

While the Celts might not have been a force in the 1940s when the Myers-Briggs personality test was created, there's a distinct connection between your Celtic animal and your personality type. After you share your traits, your feelings about animals and the way your tribe sees you, we'll be able to give you the lowdown on both fronts. Your results will give you both your unique personality type combination and your Celtic animal. 

Once you take this quiz, you'll understand yourself better than ever before. Not only will you have a deeper connection with your ancient animal, but you will also know the basic foundations of your own psyche. We can't think of anything more exciting than learning about our souls, and we hope you'll get the sort of wisdom you seek.

 Do you seek like an introverted duck, or do you seek like an outgoing wolf? Only your answers will tell!
