    How to answer the "What animal would you be" interview question?

    I hate this question and my wife has an interview tomorrow and knows someone that works for the company and they told her that this is ALWAYS asked. What in the hell do people want to hear when they ask this? What is the purpose...to just see how well you think?

    I'm sure there's some psychological reasoning attached to the question. There is zero fact behind this, but I would say, e.g, if someone says they're a "lion" then it displays characteristics, like strong, confident but perhaps arrogant, hasty etc. I guess what she really wants is a middle ground kind of animal (depending on the job I guess) like a horse or something.

    Very weird question tho...

    Odds are you have to give an explanation as to why you'd want to be that animal, which would give insight into your thought and reasoning processes and personality.
