    If you have ever noticed this question is everywhere! What I want to know, does what animal you choose shed light on your inner thoughts or pesonality, or is it just for fun. Are there any studies which discuss this. I goggled it and all I got was horoscopes :/ Also any theories on how this question ever came into being?


    Why is hate so ingrained in humans? For the supposed enlightened species we are very limited to such primitive behaviors. Peace is a fleeting in our society.

    I don't think there is any in depth answer as to how this question came into being. Just a bunch of friends hanging around talking about random things. I'm sure lots of people have thought it up independently of each other.

    As far as if there is a deeper meaning behind one's answer you could probably find someone who thinks so but how true it is probably depends on the person answering and their reason for what they pick. For example I tend to answer eagle and you could read something into that about grace, beauty, endangered, freedom or even patriotism for the USA but I really just think it'd be fun to fly.

    Man can will nothing unless he has first understood that he must count on no one but himself; that he is alone, abandoned on earth in the midst of his infinite responsibilities, without help, with no other aim than the one he sets himself, with no other destiny than the one he forges for himself on this earth.

    all that jumping around seems like loads of fun.

    This thread seems very suitable for the Pseudoscience section, unless someone can find a way to turn it into a scientific discussion. Would anyone like to try, or shall we move it?

    You can move it, I thought that there might be something to it. I guess it was a miss.

    You like to be seen as dominant/strong yet cuddly & innocent at the same time. A deadly foe in disguise.

    Mice are small and weak, prey not predator. Stone is cold and hard.


    You have a desire to appear aloof and 'separate' yet feel insignificant.

    You are NOT insignificant. You are a lion.

    non conformist, places great value on physical strength and agility yet at the same time for frivolous and not serious purpose.

    exotic rare one of a kind creature. You have a healthy (all be it inflated) ego but are more romatic than arrogant despite appearances.

    Why thank you, ToR. That's probably one of the nicest things that's been said to me on a forum, haha. Though in my view, mice may be small and weak, but they are not insignificant; so many little lives have been lost to the cause of science, many for the vast benefit of human health. Every one of them was valuable in their own right.
