All across the globe, people have taken various personality tests like the Myers Briggs or the popular Buzzfeed quizzes in order to help them learn more about themselves, so I thought it would be fun to use all this information we acquired and put it to good humor by going around to different spots on campus and asking MBU students one simple question: What is your spirit animal and why?
“My spirit animal is probably a large dog. I can’t really pin down what breed. It’s definitely not a golden retriever because I’m not like happy-go-lucky like those guys are, but I’m definitely protective of my friends. I’m rigid, but I can also be really fun and I like to cuddle.”
“I would say a horse, because I am a country girl and they’re very free and like they’re kind of a beautiful species and I dance, so their movements kind of replicate me dancing also, and the free movements of the horse.”
“I think it’s a rabbit. One day I got told my Chinese new year thing is a rabbit, so I always just ran with it, so I always thought rabbits like to jump, rabbits are very active, rabbits are, you know, when people see rabbits they are always happy, so I feel like when people see me they are very happy, you know, by the response on their faces, so that’s why I would say a rabbit.”
“I would be a bird, because I like to travel and I want to see everything.”
“Cheetahs move very fast, they’re very explosive and that’s what we need to do as pitchers, so I would say my spirit animal is a cheetah.”

“If I were an animal, I would be a dolphin, because I really enjoy the water and I like to explore.”
