About This Quiz

Long before the Myers-Briggs women took the psychological world by storm with their personality tests, Carl Jung and crew were using many different techniques to see inside the human mind. We're not trying to dive too deeply into your psyche with our word association test. We do want to see if we can figure out which pet would be perfect for you, though! 

As you go through this test, take a look at the word in ALL CAPS. Pause for a moment before you respond, and listen for the first word that pops into your head. Without hesitating, choose it! After enough of them, we'll gather just enough information about the way you think to pair you with the companion that could be your soulmate. 

Try to avoid thinking about a particular animal before you begin. You might think you want a hermit crab, but would a crabitat be too much work for you? Or do you need an animal you can cuddle with at night? Every word you associate will rack up a point in favor of the creature that seems to have been put on earth for you. 

Open your mind, and let the words flow! Maybe there will be a goldfish for you at the end.
