If you were animals what would you be?

As you know that I have been posting self awareness exercises where you compare yourself to different things like cartoons, and fruit so that you show your qualities through them. Today it is animals. Which animal closely resembles you in personality? When I was young I would automatically say a dog, because a dog is a man's best friend, and I have always been very loyal to my friends. I went through a period of learning who I was, this self reflection was the best thing I ever did for myself. I found out that I was like a turtle, I had a big protective shell to hide under. When life got a bit too rough for me, I would hide in my shell (I was very shy and very timid) Then when I decided to let go of my shyness and experience the world, I found that I was like butterfly who was once a caterpiller in the protective cocoon and now has matured and has become a beautiful butterfly spreading her wings and truly knowing herself and embracing life with strength and beauty. Which animal are you and why? both answers are need for a rating and especially for best response

scientifically, a psychologist told me that i am a fox. i am sly, clever and knows when to attack or when to retreat. basically i am a very flexible person. my responses to a situation can vary according to my mood, the person that i encountered, or the surroundings. i can be very timid or very aggressive depending on the situation. i can be a pushover at times but i know when to show my strength. that's so me actually. but i would really like to be a hamster. cuddly and yet quite. you know, hamsters try to mind their own business and that's what i want to be

I would have to say a turtle. I hide all my feelings and myself in general in a very hard shell that almost no one can get through. I have been hurt so many times that I am afraid to let anyone very close to me. My husband and my son are closest to me and know the most about me. My parents don't even know all that much about me.

My reason for having a bunny is because we both have the same personalities. Quiet, sensitive and loving. I'm always like this. Very kind and understanding. But today, I learned that I should stop being a bunny forever. I need to be a dragon. I know dragon doesn't exist. But that's how I like to be. I am practically breathing fire with the state I'm in. I want to be tough and strong forever. I'm tired of anyone stepping on me.

I never was very good at these kind of things. I would likely have said a dog because of it being man's best friend... but after reading what you have written, I'd probably have to say a turtle as well...in my protective shell...because I tend to be shy, and slow too like a turtle. lol Of course I'd also have to say that the butterfly would be my choice because of their free nature, and beauty....

I think I'm more of a cat. I like to be alone, but don't rile me. I will attack to defend myself. Like some cats, I will also attack to protect my friends. I love to have my back & head scratched like a cat.

Let's see...... I would be blue bird, something small which could fly but also looks precious. I'm pretty useless with these things, as I don't know what to choose all the time but this one I would say a blue bird. (I would say robin) but blue birds have a very nice singing voice. (so I could dream) ~Joey

I would be a cat. I am very independant which is the most prominent aspect of most cats personalities. They are also clean, cuddly and intelligent.

Wow, I would have to say a phoenix. I've always been fascinated with the phoenix's power to rise above the ashes and start life over again. With some of the things that have happened in my life recently, I would say I really feel like a phoenix now.

I would say wolf. If you saw me with my pack you'd know why. I act very much like them.

At one time I would have said an elephant, because I was big, but now I would say a female Lion. While they do have mates they in fact other than to bear cubs do not need them. In an other way there very self reliant, they hunt, kill their food, they share, they live in prides, and if the male is no longer useful he is pushed out. I like their independence and lack of fear of any living thing. The male lion may be king, but only because the female allows it.

I would say I'm a cat, because I'm intensely curious and playful. I dreamed I was a cat once, and it was so much fun being a cat, in the dream, I played with some crumpled up newspapers and a ball of yarn. I could also jump really high and run fast. It was almost the most fun I've ever had in a dream. I actually like dogs better than cats, but I just feel more like a cat.
