What’s My Spirit Animal?

We’re all civilized now, but a time stood not long ago when Mankind was much closer to Nature and all her children – when humans hunted and foraged and scavenged and explored just as animals did. Even today, this primal memory lives within us, storing deep in our minds the wisdom and instinct honed from the earliest days of Man.

Our ancestors spent a lot of time around animals. In the process, they learned to take note of many of their admirable traits: the courage to face against scores of predators attacking one’s home; the patience and resilience to live throughout long, tough winters; or the desire to explore the world in search for greener pastures.

These traits resonated with us, and so people adopted various animals into their personal and group identities over the ages – symbols of their proudest characteristics or members. For the Native Americans, the ‘spirit animal’ even acted as a guide to bring out the best qualities in a tribesman. To follow one’s spirit animal was to take a journey toward growth and self-discovery.

Gone are the days where you and I needed to fight off carnivorous beasts for our next meal, or chase wild game to the point of exhaustion, although much of the wilderness is still in our souls. Our spirit animal lives on.

It is a savage remnant, yearning to be expressed. Perhaps it can add a touch of nuance to your perspective on life, or serve as a symbol of your greatest strengths, or even act as a guide to your untapped, hidden potentials as a person. You might be braver, stronger, smarter, or more resilient than you think.

All of us hear the call of the wild. In what voice might you answer back? A great roar? A shriek to pierce the skies? A subtle, fear-inspiring hiss? “What’s my spirit animal?” you may finally ask. Take this quiz to find out. Enjoy!

About our Spirit Animal Personality Quiz

The practice of discovering and following the guidance of spirit animals stems from shared Native American culture. As their tribes lived so closely among the marvellous creatures of the wilderness, many animals became key figures and symbols for different tribes and communities.

Spirit animals took on a much more mystical and active role in American Indian culture compared to the tutelaries and familiars of other mythologies. Dreams depicting critters such as deer, oxen, horses, or cattle might be taken as the appearance of a tribesman’s spirit animal granting him a message. The message might be the start of a long journey, or a quest for self-improvement, or even an actual message to deliver to another tribe’s chieftain.

In essence, however, spirit animals helped a person mature and take on great feats, exemplifying the traits which they or their tribe needed from them the most. For a tribesman of enough merit, they might even take the moniker of an animal significant in their lives as part of their name.

Just look at such influential Native American heroes like Sitting Bull, Black Hawk and Standing Bear. Now those are formidable names – it’s only natural that only formidable people can earn them.

Finding your spirit animal can be a uniquely insightful kind of exercise to learn new aspects of your personality, especially that instinctual, primal side to which many of us usually don’t pay attention.

It’s precisely because we tend to ignore our primal side that we can end up surprised at what our animal spirit guide is. In fact, that’s the reason we’ve worked especially hard on this quiz. Think of it this way – since a spirit animal is a symbol for many of Man’s best traits over the millennia, perhaps your best traits are just waiting to be discovered. We hope you’ll learn something cool about yourself with this quiz!

How to Find Out Your True Spirit Animal

The mysticism surrounding the concept of spirit animals can put some people off, especially if you’re skeptical of myths, legends, and the occult, in general.

Other spirit animal sites do approach this subject predominantly through a New Age perspective, and come with their own cool, compelling suggestions to finding your true spirit animal. However, we believe spirit animals can be fascinating ways to learn more of one’s habits, attitudes, strengths and vulnerabilities regardless of perspective, and built this quiz for anyone to enjoy. We hope you did.

Did our quiz rouse a bit of curiosity in you? Splendid! If you’re interested in finding out more about discovering and connecting with your spirit animal, here are a few suggestions.

First off, take note of your dreams. Interpreting your dreams can lead to some insights on what your unconscious mind is concerned about, and some animals can feature prominently in them. Try to note which animals appear as you dream.

You could also try observing animals while you’re awake. Which ones attract your attention? How often do they appear over a period of days or weeks? Do they appear in the films you watch or the books you read? Paying attention to animals can help you be attuned with nature.

Try to observe your own habits afterwards. Note the times you’re awake or most active. Keep track of your diet and eating patterns. Figure out the activities and hobbies that you’ve been wanting to do for a while. These are actually great tips for a healthy lifestyle, too. When you’ve noted all of these habits down, compare them with the habits and behaviors from other animals.

If you’d like to follow these suggestions, we also recommend filling out a little journal. For anyone on a path to self-improvement, journaling regularly can be a great way to declutter and organize the mind.

FAQ Spirit Animal

Do I need to go to the wilderness to find my spirit animal?

Being around nature can be really helpful in finding your spirit animal. You might even need a break to get some fresh air and sunlight if you’ve been staying in your home or in the city.
However, you don’t have to go deep into an untamed forest to seek your guide. You can make the most of the nature around you – meditating in small gardens, watching animals scurry in a park, spending the weekend at the beach or zoo, all of these can be great, too.
If you’re so inclined, you can also try hiking. Taking a stroll in the woods or mountains can clear your mind to focus on your animal guide. Just be careful in the wilderness, okay?

Is my spirit animal permanent?

According to Native American beliefs, a tribesman’s spirit animal can change depending on the circumstances. Perhaps when a guide senses that you’ve finally accomplished all the trials of its journey, another guide will rise up to bring you another journey filled with new challenges. Change always occurs in life, after all, and the primal aspect of your personality might be reflecting that.
It isn’t uncommon for someone to keep only a single spirit animal as their steadfast companion throughout life, however. This might be a testament to some strength or virtue that has remained constant as they age and mature.

Can I have more than one spirit animal?

Simply put, yes. It’s possible for you to have multiple spirit animals. As human beings, our personalities are hardly ever simple. We’re complicated creatures with different, sometimes even contrasting traits and behaviors, and the appearance of more than one spirit guide can be a representation of that. This is particularly relevant for people who keenly experience their emotions.
It turns out that a lot of people like more than one type of animal. This isn’t a game of Pokemon, though. Spirit animals aren’t something you can just catch and ignore. They’re valuable figments of your psyche that can help expand your understanding of your personality.
