About This Quiz

There are spirit animals and kindred spirit animals, but the most important are the totem animals. For each person on earth, there's an animal that looks out for our every move and our every decision. After you play along to our word association test, we will be able to let you know which animal guides your spirit. 

In order to take our word association test, you will need to know the rules as well as a prized Airedale terrier at a dog show. Instead of asking you questions, we will give you a word in ALL CAPS. Your job will be to choose the word you associate most with the word we've presented. You don't need to be an English major to have a ball during this word association test. You just need to let us know how your mind puts words together. 

Although word association tests have been used for psychological purposes, we only want to figure out which totem animal guides your life. Seeing the way your brain associates words will show us your animal instincts without the howl and growl of too many words. Are you guarded by the animal you think you are, or are you guided by something else? Associate these WORDS, and you'll know!
