Are you a fan of taking online personality tests? Yep, same here! We know, we know, some of them can be based on cheesy premises, while others sometimes garner just, plain bizarre results, but there’s just something so addictive about hitting that ‘Complete Quiz’ button and getting the opportunity to learn something really random about yourself. Hey–there’s nothing wrong with wanting to know what ice cream flavor you’d be!
But, silly, food-related online quizzes aside, we’ve got one for you today that is particularly interesting and–lucky for you–only requires half of a second to complete. It’s called the “Which Animal Do You See?” quiz and it’s got everybody on the Internet talking right now.
Ok, full disclosure, it’s not as hot as the “Laurel or Yanny?” phenomenon, but, it’s way more telling!
All you need to do is stare at the picture that you see at the top of this post. In it, you will likely find at least a couple of different animals, but this quiz isn’t about counting–it’s about using your eyes to determine what animal from the image you see first.
So, let’s do this together; glance up at the image and, as quickly as you can, name aloud the first creature you spot.
Hmmm. Interesting, right?
We’re guessing that you had no trouble naming the animal, but once you look further at the image, you are starting to wonder if you chose the “right” one. Well, luckily, there is no right or wrong answer for this particular exercise. Because it’s a personality test, it uses your knee-jerk reaction to determine a part of your unique personality.
Confused yet? Well, let’s take OUR answer, for example…
The first animal that we saw when we looked at the image was a wolf (though, we’re pretty sure that the lion was a close second!). According to the quiz, those who see the wolf first are “highly-guarded” because they are people who have been “hurt before.”
Kind of a downer, huh?
Luckily, not all of the animals hold such sad, yet telling meanings. Let’s take a quick look at the owl, for example. Here’s what the quiz says…
If you saw the owl, you often find yourself reflecting on your inner self, taking time to figure out your next step.
Hmmm. It sure does make sense, if you think about it. The animal that a person sees first is the one that they most identify with, so, seeing as though owls are typically regarded as “knowledgeable” creatures, it’s not surprising that deep-thinking introverts would be attracted to them!
So, now that you know the basics of how this innovative personality quiz works, it’s time for you to unlock the rest of the meanings for the half-dozen animals that are featured in the image. To get the results, just click on the video below. Wait until you hear what they say about the lion!
We’d love to hear your take on this quiz! Were you surprised by your results? Do you think that the quiz got your personality right? Do you know of any other telling quizzes that you’d like to share?
