About This Quiz

At the top of every food chain is a predator, one whose tactics may seem extraordinarily brutal to a casual observer. Wolves, for example, gang up on a group of larger animals like a moose or bison and collectively pummel it to death. Or take a shark, who silently stalks its prey in the water until it can get an angle from which to land a clean, forceful bite that immediately kills its prey.

While these acts may seem savage on their face, for the animals, they are a natural part of life. A shark wouldn't be able to survive if it couldn't fiercely dismember its prey. A hawk that couldn't swoop down and snatch a small lion cub for dinner wouldn't live very long. In that light, the seemingly vicious way these animals hunt is merely a method of survival.

Humans use anger as a method of survival, as well. When we feel disrespected, slighted or embarrassed, especially by other people, it's common for us to react with anger. Some people even feel their anger will have an influence, although as we all are aware, getting angry rarely makes a situation better.

Now that we've established the connection between anger and predators of the wild, let's match you to a specific one! Answer the questions below, and we'll show you your rage spirit animal.
