How to Find Your Spirit Animal – Do the Internet Quizzes Work?

Every week we receive queries from customers and readers asking how to find their personal animal spirit.

No one can tell you what your spirit animal is – you will know. The animal will find you or you will find the animal. You will know.

Among other things, you can soul-search, meditate, go on a vision quest, walk in nature or a zoo or browse the fetishes in our store to help you find an animal you are drawn to.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe’ve been asked if the online quizzes will help you find your animal spirit.  To answer that, I will be the guinea pig (no, that’s not my animal spirit !) and test 9 of the more popular quizzes.

But first for a baseline, here are the animals that are aligned with me.

My Results – The Wolf

You are typically a more nighttime-ish person, you are very intellectual and skilled in sports and other out door activities. You have a lot of friends but you sometimes are misunderstood, and feel as if no one really understands how you are and how you feel.

The Gabby Wild Foundation – What’s Your Spirit Animal?

My results

You are the Snow Leopard!

FC350-lion-jet-begay-1Like the snow leopard, people believe that you are extraordinarily fierce. While you certainly give a certain bite and are not afraid to defend what is rightfully yours, you don’t always “roar”. In fact, the snow leopard is unable to roar. You keep yourself well-protected, as does the snow leopard. They have large paws that are completed covered in fur to keep them warm and act like snowshoes.

SPIRIT ANIMALS AND ANIMAL TOTEMS

My Result

Your spirit animal is the Owl

FF275-owl-marble-gonzalez-1

Characteristics: Intuition, ability to see what other do not see, announcer of change, wisdom

Spirit Animal Profile: The owl spirit animal is emblematic of a deep connection with wisdom and intuitive knowledge. If you have the owl as totem or power animal, you’re likely to have the ability to see what’s usually hidden to most. When the spirit of the animal guides you, you can the true reality and see beyond illusion and deceit.

You are a Wolverine!

Powers: Fighting ability—strength, speed, and toughness

Nobody messes with Wolverines. You’re fearless, assertive (okay, aggressive), and tenacious. You might be a Marine, or a middle linebacker. You’re the best at whatever you choose to do, because you give yourself no alternative.

Your result for The What is Your Spirit Animal Test

The Grizzly Bear

Here’s your results! Your spirit animal has a Nobility ranking of 14 out of 18.

FB525-pm-laiwakete-1Your spirit animal is the Grizzly Bear. No other spirit animal matches it’s size and strength. This creature is among the noblest and most respectable, and you are truly fortunate. It is both fearsome and awesome to behold. It will serve you well, and shows that you have a deeper understanding than most. It is quite rare indeed to have a Grizzly as a spirit animal!***Wondering how this animal was chosen for you? These questions were carefully thought out to see how important you hold certain virtues such as: humanism, self-knowledge, rationalism, the love of freedom and other somewhat Hellenic ideals. Some of the questions were very subtle. Your score was then matched with an animal of corresponding nobility.

PAULA’S CONCLUSION

The tests were interesting, some even fun. Of the nine tests I took, here is the summary of the results:

1 wolf (my wolf animal spirit)

1 bear (my husband’s animal spirit)

2 owls and 1 buffalo (my mother’s animal spirits)

And then there were

2 felines

1 wolverine

1 sloth

So I’d call the online quizzes hit and miss.  I doubt that anyone that knows me would associate me with a sloth yet most of the others were on target or at least in the ballpark.
