What kind of animal are you? - page 5

In an Interview recently, I was asked a strange question, "If you were an animal what kind of animal would you be?" Initially I laughed out loud as I thought it was a trick question or a joke but... Read More

    Something tells me the dog breed is important. Based on my family's pet, chocolate lab can't possible be the right answer!

    "Yes, ma'am, I am mostly motivated by food and naps, and I only enjoy teamwork that involves me getting all the attention."

    Or perhaps, my friend's dachshund?

    "If something changes, I will be the first to know about it. I will make sure to yell loudly so everyone else is aware, even if it's just someone using my pen. Also, I will eat anything."

    I still think I'm a lemur. Friendly, a little quirky, curious, and slightly escapist. Don't forget the dark circles under the eyes!

    I have been asked that question before but, never in a job interview. I've always wanted to be a Blue Whale.

    Hmm, a lot of people want to be blue whales for some reason. There must be something about them I'm not seeing....

    I wonder if the question was reversed and they asked me what animal does your current manager remind you of?

    I would have to say a snake, or a slug, or a worm! Yep I know not really animals but these are the descriptions that came to mind when I thought of my previous manager

    I would like to be chimpazee.This is because they live in groups, gather food together and love to groom each other.I watched the movie on T.V,and I was so facsinated to see that in time of danger they alert each other and even try aggressively to attack the stranger.After the incident is over,they will sit together and start playing,grooming,eating e...t.c.This lowers the heart rate,and even has a calming effect.When humans are in stress we tent not to groom and socialize,instead we go to barber shop,massage,shopping beach to calm ourself.Anyway I admire the chimpazee lifestyle.It is very intresting.

    This could be a fun question if you didn't really care if you get the job or not. Just creep them out for the heck of it. You could be weirdly specific, and say you would want to be that talking horse from the Pippi Longstocking movies. Or say you'd want to be that cat on the news that knows when the nursing home patients are going to die.

    I wander what good naming a mythical animal would be: Unicorns, Sasquatch or Bigfoot, Dragon, Flying Pig, or a Griffin
