    Default Animals have personality right?

    I was wondering if animals/pets have the four letter personality that people do?
    what do you guys think about that?

    Well, no. Because they can't take the MBTI without the ability to read, and they are a lot more biologically based, less capable of independent thought. But they're still sweet, warm, and caring.

    I don't think the same rules apply to it, but animals certainly seem to have distinct personalities. The dogs my parents have had were all different in personality, and my cat is certainly different from most cats.

    Squirrels appear to be ESFPs if that helps.

    Animals most definitely have personality. To say otherwise is simply a demonstration of mankind's perceived superiority over other lifeforms.

    (And most people don't really have personality, either.)

    Yeah, my cat is an ESFP. Almost every animal I've met has had a personality, and if you look into their eyes, you can see some spark of personality in them.

    And if you end up not liking at it, at least you can be ensured of a short life span, when you dodge back and forth between cars on the road.
