What Pet Should You Get Based on Your Personality?

 

Take this test to find out

 

Puppies and kittens may be adorable to watch, but living with one or two and taking care of them is another story. Are you impatient? Maybe a puppy that will want all your attention 24/7 (or chew through your slippers because they’re teething) is not for you. Not the cuddling type? An exotic reptile might do the trick.

Results:

 

If your answer is:

 

Mostly a: Get a dog or better yet, adopt one

You’re loyal and dependable, extroverted, agreeable, and conscientious much like man’s best friend. You’ll also likely enjoy your dog’s companionship when you do fun outdoor activities or go out for a run.

 

 

Mostly b: Go for cats

You’re pretty independent and you like your alone time same as cats. You’re a good listener and you like cozy, small spaces. Though prone to anxiety and neuroticism, you are a bundle of fun, creativity and attitude!

 

 

Mostly c: Rabbits are your BFFs

Many pet rabbit parents are extremely introverted and are equally prone to neuroticism. But that doesn’t mean they’re not sympathetic or warm! 

 

 

Mostly d: Get a feathered friend

Bird people are polite, well mannered and caring. You like going to social affairs, are expressive and quite the articulate conversationalist. Trivia: experts say females who keep birds as pets are socially dominant.

 

 

Mostly e: A cold-blooded exotic pet will suit you best!

You’re not the most agreeable person but you’re pretty chill and reliable. Your tastes are usually unconventional and you like novel things and ideas. Rational and goal-oriented, you’re also very independent.

 

 

Mostly f: F is for fish

Fish people are go-with-the-flow types, calm and emotionally stable. But they’re also highly detail-oriented, territorial and like their space clean, so they wouldn’t mind cleaning the fish tank every 3 to 7 days a week.
