I am not really into hippie-dippy stuff like fortune-telling or astrology. But sometimes, I like reading them and taking all these personality tests to see if they actually describe me.
I learned about Doubutsu Uranai 動物占い – animal fortunetelling or animal divination – from Ate Jen. I have certainly never heard of the Japanese talking about this. I know they are big into the blood type personalities (I am type O, by the way). I thought this was pretty interesting — and the pictures on the site were too cute to ignore. Here is my result:
You are Yellow Lion, who looks cheerful, straightforward and precise, but at the bottom of your heart, you are very cautious towards other people and do not take your guard off so easily.
You are always thoroughly on your guard.
You hardly express your emotions, but can act in line with the others.
Although this make you look sociable, you are not truly coming out of your shell.
You tend to be rather a lonely person, and work hard without taking notice of the surrounding situations.
You dislike being interfered, and do not depend on or show your weakness to others.
You tend to endure your struggle all on your own.
You are very responsible person, and puts great effort in improving traditional things.
You don’t go rushing into things on your own, but try to work by keeping well balanced with others.

You don’t brood over as well.

It will be important for you and your partner to respect each other.
If I entered my so-called “real” birthday (October 9), I still get the lion, but green this time. I like the yellow one better, because the green lion sounds so…boring.
