Last week in one of my classes, we took a personality test. I searched and found the same one online (or close to the same). He doesn't use the animals, just letters, and you can decide the degree of your trait. I'm curious to see how the rest of you turn out. It takes a few minutes, but it's interesting. I have more info on the interpretations that I'll post later.

The site has some religious stuff in it, but I linked you right to the test. I don't think you'll encounter anything preachy.

Let me know how you do?

I was pretty even on the scores for captain, steward, and navigator, with steward being the highest, but quite a bit lower on social director. How do those match up with the lion, beaver, otter, and retriever?

I scored very high, and only 1 in difference, as a Steward (47) and Navigator (46), and somwhat low as a Captain (26) and Social Director (18)... so how do these relate to the animal test? I'd definately say this test was precisely me! =)

The animal correlations:

A/Captain is the Lion. The lion likes to take charge, get things done right away, and can be controlling. The lion is a leader and often inspires others to follow. They can also be very pushy and intimidating (thing army generals).

B/Social Director is the Otter. The otter is the "life of the party." This is the one that is described as having "shallow friendships." The description given in the reading we got was that an otter will often say she will bring the chips to a party, but forget- not because she forgot the chips, but because she's at another party. Think of the person trying to convince you to "just try it" because it looks fun, even if it's dangerous. Otters are also very verbal and tend to attack verbally. They also are optimistic and creative.

C/Steward is the Golden Retriever. The GR is the sensitive, feeling person. This can be good, but can go overboard. The GR will often have few friendships, but they are deep. They avoid confrontation, enjoy routine, and value loyalty. They are the nuturers. GRs are not very spontaneous b/c they are so loyal and don't like change. They also tend to take other people's problems on themselves.

D/Navigator is the Beaver. Think accountant. A beaver must have everything in its place. Beavers have a very hard time with change and imperfection. The have to have everything just right. The beaver will take the longest to finish this quiz.

The couples with the most marital problems are the Lion/Golden Retriever combo if they don't understand each other.

Most people are a combination of two different animals. The traits are only a problem if one stands out over another.

Now for my results! I am a lion (28 points). My second one was a Golden Retriever (23 points). Otter was 20 and Beaver was 10. The original test I took didn't allow you to give values to each trait, so I was worried about my lion score, but I think they are more evened out this way.

An interesting tidbit- I asked my sister, dad, and his gf what they thought I was. My sister said lion without a doubt, but his gf said otter. My daddy said he loves me just the way I am.
