About This Quiz

We think our hearts are so special that only our spirit animals should guard them. Of course, we are not talking about the heart that beats in your chest. Having a spirit animal in there would be only slightly uncomfortable. When we want to guess the spirit animal that guards your heart, we are talking about the pinnacle of your soul. 

During this quiz, we will ask you a series of questions designed to get to know the kind of heart you have and the animals you love. After we get a good feel for the type of spirit you have, we'll be able to pair you with the spirit animal that looks out for your heart. Although you might think of yourself as being guarded by something cute, does your heart actually require the protection of something more fierce? 

In order to correctly match you with the spirit animal that guards your heart, we are going to need your complete honesty. We cannot think of anything worse than being paired with the wrong spirit animal! Choose the response that represents you or your feelings best, and we'll let you know which animal makes sure your heart never truly gets broken!
