I had a fun discussion about this with the BS01 staff last night. I figured it would be fun to open discussion to BZPower too.
Basically, what kind of animal do you/would you associate with your own personality and why? I don't mean anything serious like identifying yourself as another species, but rather just a simple comparison between yourself and a type of animal. Also, no need to over-think the comparison, as any such comparison is a generalization anyhow.
Obviously I associate myself with wolves, and even go so far as to identify myself as one from time to time. I tend to show respect to worthy authority, and my own life is rather similar to the concept of a beta wolf (an adult wolf who sticks with its pack, biding its time until its ready to live on its own). The comparison pretty much stops there though.
