About This Quiz

Ancient peoples often wrote of goddesses shape-shifting into an array of creatures like swans, lionesses and wolves. For instance, according to Roman mythology, Metis, the wife of Zeus, could transform into anything she desired. In a shape-shifting duel with Zeus, she morphed into gigantic, feathered creatures, scaly, reptilian entities and even a tiny fly. Meanwhile, Native Hawaiians revered the deity Péle, the goddess of volcanoes, who could forge entire landscapes and likewise assume any form her heart desired. 

Today, these ancient goddesses still manifest their magic in the souls of modern-day women. That means without even knowing it, you may be harboring a fiery dragon or sparkling unicorn deep inside. Sure, maybe you can't turn into a werewolf at the snap of your fingers--still, you have a special, mythical essence lurking within. So, which type of mythical creature represents your inner goddess: the clever sphinx or the ardent dragon? The caring unicorn or the free-flowing mermaid? Take the following quiz to find out which creature stirs within you, just dying to get out.
