About This Quiz

The Myers-Briggs personality test isn't just useful in determining human personality types for purposes of hiring, firing and promoting people in large corporations. Here at Zoo, we have learned it can do so much more than that. We have recently found out a series of algorithms that can tell us, with the help of some carefully selected Myers-Briggs questions, what Australian animal someone is.

Of course, we aren't suggesting that you, dear test taker, are an Australian animal seated at a computer. We all know that only South American animals can do that. Nevertheless, we believe there is a deep and profound correspondence between certain Myers-Briggs personality types and specific totemic Australian animals. Humans have a longstanding connection to our wild cousins, especially the totally weird animals of Australia, and it isn't unreasonable to see ourselves in the animals of that island continent, just as we see them in us.

This quiz will only take a few minutes of your time, but by the end you will have an important piece of information you can give to the HR person at your next job. Instead of talking about how you are an ENFP or an INTJ, you can just say "I'm a wallaby!"
