What Animal Are You?


Can you see yourself in the animal that you got?



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I took the test and this is my result.

You are a Bat!
 

This is a decidedly nonconformist creature, for as an airborne personality, the bat tends to look down at the conventions of the ground animals. And yet, since it is not a true bird and has not mastered the art of smooth controlled flight, it often appears awkward in social situations (hence the phrase "acting batty"). But as compensation for this social ungainliness, many bat personalities sport a built-in radar which enables them to intuitively read the motivations of others.
Spotting a Bat Personality

Identifying bat personalities is not difficult. Being nocturnal creatures, they come alive at night and can be spotted in underground clubs or dimly lit bars. They prefer the sanctuary of dark clothing and dark corners, and you'll never see a bat sporting a heavy tan. These are intelligent, spiritual, creative individuals who use their full range of senses (other than their poor eyesight) to carefully navigate their way through life.
Bats have a habit of flitting in and out of social situations, swooping down to interact briefly with others before quickly flying off to resume their bat lives. Unassertive and aloof, they'll take flight at the first hint of a confrontation to seek comfort in their personal spaces, generally decorated in unusual but expressive ways.

The Bat's Secret Weapon

A sixth sense gives bats a number of advantages in their work, and their insightful nature enables them to understand others better than they understand themselves. This intuitiveness makes bats excellent psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and palm readers. They respond poorly to direction however, and function best as a sole practitioners in their own business. Preferring to work at night and sleep by day, a bat's job must be flexible enough to accommodate these unusual hours. A creative streak often finds them in the design and architectural fields, and their unique relationship with dark caves makes you a natural archeologist or spelunker.
Although the bat's spiritual side is always on display, they are not overly emotional. Because of their unusual and sometimes awkward approach to life they can sometimes have difficulty finding companions. However, bats respond well to anyone who shares their philosophical perspective, and they love spending long hours in deep conversation. Once they have successfully located a partner, bats prove to be both dependable and committed companions.Â
Bats in the Wild

While often mistaken for birds, bats of course are mammals that have chosen to abandon the world of the terrestrial and adopt the nocturnal, airborne environment in which they thrive. Although a number of other mammals are able to glide , bats are the only ones to have achieved real flight. Highly skilled hunters, bats have been able to infiltrate a variety of geographical niches using all manner of feeding techniques. From the famous bloodsucking vampire to the tiny pollinating fruit bat, their nocturnal flappings evoke an image of a mysterious and vaguely repellent rodent on the wing.


I can definitely relate to aspects of this description.

You are a Beaver!

 
Portrait of a Beaver Personality

Beaver Characteristics
Reliable Ethical Judgemental


Beavers are the workaholics of the animal world. No animal personality places more emphasis, nor derives more self-esteem than beavers do from their careers. They can be found at all levels of the working world, though they perform best in unsupervised positions that require serious responsibility. This makes them ideal for roles as a ship's captain, naval officer, judge, accountant or bank manager. As a handyperson they have no equal: If asked to fix a chair, they'll build one from scratch.

Beaver Personalities are Impeccably Organized
Organized and structured, their determined attitudes spill over into all aspects of their busy lives and they plan for the future almost unconsciously. Decisions made regarding their relationships, careers and families are methodically and practically prepared, and they are most comfortable at work or ensconced in their fastidiously decorated homes. In their spare time, beavers love to busy themselves around the house or tend their precisely manicured lawns.

It is arguable, however, whether the beaver's complex home-building skills require intelligence or simply instinct, much as a bird builds a nest. Today it is generally believed that the beaver's intelligence is overrated and they are often killed by their poor lumberjacking skills.

The Workaholics of the Animal Kingdom
While others are playing, beavers are usually hard at work. They are well prepared for any eventuality and their homes are well stocked with spare water, emergency radios and survival kits. Even the beaver is not sure why it spends such energy in securing its home, but it instinctively feels more comfortable when it does.

Beaver personalities come in all shapes and sizes. Generally in good physical condition, they find time to keep fit even with their busy work schedules. Their conscientious attitudes makes them dependable as friends and a commitment from a beaver is like money in the bank.

The Wild Beaver
The beaver is second in size to the South American capybara as the world's largest rodent. Famous for their engineering talents, beavers are able to create advanced damming systems and intricate lodges. It is arguable, however, whether the beaver's complex home-building skills require intelligence or is simply instinct, much as a bird builds a nest. Today, it is generally believed that the beaver's intelligence is overrated. Contrary to the notion that they purposely fell trees to fall into the water, they are not infrequently killed by having these trees fall on them.

Beavers live in colonies and mate for life. They are preyed on by all carnivores of their own weight or more, and away from the Protection of their lodge, they are relatively defenseless. Today, the beaver receives protection from human hunting, although some beaver Populations have been so successful that control has become necessary.

Love & Friendship
The beaver is an eager lover and its relationships seem to survive the most difficult challenges. Once a beaver has made a commitment to its partner, it will move water and earth to uphold its promise.

Beavers are passionate but hardly imaginative in their lovemaking, for their partners' approval is too important to gamble with risky play. This makes the beaver unique amongst the water mammals who are always willing to get their feet wet. But, even with their conservative libidos, beavers are still attracted to casual relationships with the free-spirited aquatic dolphins, sea lions, walruses, and otters.

If the beaver's partner is looking for someone to rock its world, he or she should keep looking. But if they're looking for a supportive, committed partner who will remain monogamous -- they've come to the right place. However, since the beaver's idea of support is financial rather than emotional, it's not uncommon for its partner to feel alienated and lonely.

Ideal marriages result from unions with sea lions, moles, and mice, all of who appreciate the beaver's hardworking determined spirit. The larger carnivores are to be avoided at all costs; for relationships with lions, bears and tigers are invariably one-sided, with the beaver ending up with the short end of the stick.


Yeah, I relate to this one too :) I'm not a workaholic though, though others might see me that way.

I got penguin. Nothing against penguins, but the associated description doesn't fit at all. Odd thing is I went back and altered my answers significantly and it still comes back as Penguin every time. Screwy test or some other (browser cache?) issue... I neither know nor have the time to investigate.

I like penguins and was hoping to get penguin - I actually think the description sounded a bit like me. That could be wishful thinking because I like penguins, though. :smile:

I'm also a Bat. I relate to some of it, not the romance part though. Definitely brutally honest when it comes to ideas of love (I kind of want to research bats now to see how bats behave with other bats/ animals. They always gave me a "stay the heck away from me" vibe but maybe it's a species thing:kitteh:)

Oh, and I was literally called a Bat about a week back (partly because my room is isolated, cold and dark thanks to a broken light.) So that's a funny connection.
