"Perhaps you really are an elephant."
- Dr. English and Lazarus, "Mr. Stitch"
We've all encountered people who remind us of animals. They act like bears, baboons, weasels, sloths, and vultures and even sometimes look like these animals. The human range of personality types (about fifty) is rooted in nature's need to maintain diverse ecosystems. Every ecosystem requires the interaction of many different types of creatures in order to remain stable. It needs top predators, other carnivores, small herbivores, burrowing animals, birds, to maintain enduring and healthy populations.
Humans so completely dominate their environment that our social structures have become ecosystems unto themselves, and each of us must find our own niche in a competitive world. Depending on our physical characteristics, we subconsciously adopt personalities that fit with the people in our lives. Thanks to the process of parallel evolution, it's no coincidence that our range of personalities dovetails so tightly to the personality and behaviors of animals in the wild.
Based on this biological premise, The Animal in You personality test is a fun, accurate and whimsical way to determine your animal personality.
