About This Quiz

It's hard to watch a Jurassic Park or Jurassic World movie these days and not root for the dinosaurs. At some point you realize they're the true heroes, just trying to live their lives while people keep making it difficult for them. No doubt you have your favorite dinosaur from those movies, or maybe even one they didn't actually include in the film. Let's face it; dinosaurs were pretty cool. Lizards that were bigger than elephants? That's all kinds of awesome.

Maybe you've always felt you related in some way to one of those prehistoric beasts. Heck, maybe you never even considered it before.  But make no mistake, your personality absolutely leans more towards one kind of dinosaur than another. The way you look at the world and interact with the people and things in it? There's some very Jurassic stuff going on in there. Probably Triassic and Cretaceous, too. 

How do you determine what your inner dinosaur is? That's easy! Answer these questions as honestly as you can, and we'll pick apart your answers like a scientist harvesting DNA from a preserved mosquito to build you into the dinosaur you never knew you were! Take the quiz and see!
