What's Your Kindred Spirit?


Everyone's talking about kindred spirits these days. A belief rooted in many cultures is now an internet phenomenon that's caught the attention of celebrities like Oprah.

So, what's your kindred spirit? Are you driven by passion? Security? What creature represents your inner personality? Maybe you're swift and clever like a rabbit, or perhaps you spend most of your time chilling like a sloth. While everyone is unique, we all have similarities that group us into certain personality types. Knowing your kindred spirit can help you spot weaknesses in yourself you might be unaware of. Your kindred spirit can serve as a source of inspiration. Or, at the very least, it could help you decide your next tattoo.

Take this quiz to find out who your inner beast is. Once you know your kindred spirit, challenge a friend to this quiz and see if their inside matches who they appear to be on the outside.

Kindred Spirits Evolved from Indigenous Culture

Though the internet has turned kindred spirit into memes, the concept of totem animals is much older. While the word totem itself comes from the North American Ojibwe language, a belief in tutelary, or protective, spirits appears in indigenous cultures worldwide. Neoshamanism and new age philosophy often reference animal totems, as symbols of inspiration in an individual's life. The concept of power animals was introduced to the new age movement in 1980 by Michael Harner in his book "Way of the Shaman". Ted Andrew's "Animal Speak" (1993) was also instrumental in bringing this concept to mainstream audiences. While totems being used outside indigenous cultures is a controversial idea, they've remained popular topics. This quiz was created solely for fun and is not intended to be disrespectful to or informative of indigenous spirituality in any way.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
