About This Quiz

Calling ALL dog lovers! Are you curious to know what dog breed you are based on your Myers-Briggs personality type? Take this quick and easy introspective personality quiz to find out what dog breed best suits your personality! 

The Myers-Briggs Personality Quiz was developed based on Jung’s theory of psychological types. According to the Myers & Briggs Foundation, the test was originally developed to "help individuals grow through an understanding and appreciation of individual differences in healthy personalities, and to enhance harmony and productivity in diverse groups." Much like the Myers & Briggs Personality Quiz, this test was developed to help individuals gain an understanding and appreciation for their inner dog breed! Much like human beings, dogs have very distinct personalities and temperaments. This is why finding your dog breed based on your Myers-Briggs personality type makes perfect sense! 

Since the beginning of time, dogs have provided people with companionship. Doesn’t that make you wonder what kind of dog you would have been? Would you have been the African Hunting Dog known as the Basenji? Or are you the calm and comforting Greyhound? Perhaps, you are an independent and protective Chow-Chow? Maybe even a friendly and confident Golden Retriever? Only this quiz can tell you! Take it now and share your results with family and friends!
