About This Quiz

While many people have given credit to the Star Wars franchise for coming up with the "dark side" theory, there is evidence that it has been in existence long before that. Freud referred to the same thing as id, but it has also been described in Machiavellianism.

Your dark side is said to be the most aggressive aspect of being a person. When people go to this side, they have been said to be acting on instinct or impulse and any number of unpredictable things can happen. Some people commit various crimes, while others betray or lash out at their closest friends. There are some people who argue that there is a positive to having a dark side and that some people find it very attractive.

There are approximately 600 species of venomous snakes in the world, but which one of them best represents your dark side? Will it be an animal which can be found at your local zoo, or will it be an exotic animal which can only be found in its native homeland? If you would like to find out who your slithering friend is, then this is the quiz for you!
