    I like you Butterfly one. There are a few analogies to be made there.
    Man, I'm all for this thread, I'm just saying to reduce the nitpicking, you should eiter limit it to archytypes or be open to several types per animal depending on the description of said animal by the contributor..

    Glad you liked the buttefly one

    How about ENFP for the archetype of the Black Cat?
    And an INTJ for the Snow Owl

    I've had cats all my life and some of them have mimicked my behaviors. We've had two cats who have imprinted on my husband. Our ISTJ cats. One we called "The little fire starter." and another "The house frau." The German appellation because she was a bit of a Nazi in her insistence about it all. (I know.)

    They would tell my spouse when it was time to perform certain daily tasks, then "follow in front" to lead him to his chores. One we have now helps him shovel snow, rake leaves and helps me dig in the gardens. But she's more disruptive/playful than earnest about getting it done. Must be INFP.

    We've had two male cats that I swear were raised with puppies, who met my husband at the garage door when he came home and walked him to the door telling him everything that happened during the day. They also followed us, dog-like, when we went for walks.

    I've had four black cats and all of them seemed INFP to me. But I have known E cats as well.

    Tortoise shell cats are sometimes called "naughty torties" for their contrary behavior. And a couple of cats I've known were so totally laid back that they fall off of things dozing in their lazy reveries.

    I'm not good at typing but I do notice distinct personalities in various animals I've owned.

    The primates also mimic humans. Or is it vice-versa? I once watched a gorilla at the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago mock a man who stood watching him. It was very sly and clever.

    In general:

    Dogs - ESFP
    Cats - ISFJ

    Lion - ISTJ
    Cheetah - ISTP

    Chimpanzee - ENFP
    Gorilla - INTP

    Animals types. INTP = raccoon? I'd like to go with sea otters but they seem a bit too graceful.

    For a time when I lived in Maine, I bred Bengals. While some breeders use cages/pens, mine were raised underfoot - subjected to strangers visiting, a dog (our Sheltie/Eskimo mix who adored kittens) and being put in their place by older cats. As a result of both the breed characteristics and the upbringing, they grew to be some of the most gregarious (E)/idiosyncratic (N) cats I've ever known.

    I used to get Christmas cards from the people to whom I'd sold kittens - generally outlining what their cat had done over the year and proclaiming "Best Cat Evah." My small way of giving back to the world.

    But could someone explain to me how four small 9-wk-old kittens could lift a 25-lb, tile-framed bathroom mirror from the wall and send it crashing to the floor? (ENTP ringleader?)

    Anyway, the petite female I owned - Snorkey - had the face of an angel and the soul of a drill sargeant. I once walked into the kitchen and found her walking around with an Exacto knife clenched in her mouth. "Psst. Everybody run - Snorkey has a knife and she's taking no prisoners."

    Snorkey absolutely refused to have a litter of kittens unless I was home to tend to her. And as soon as I was home, sitting cross-legged on the floor, she would climb up onto me and flood my lap with amniotic fluid. And that, people, is self-control.

    Mango, the male, was OTOH an absolutely gorgeous tri-color-marble with the brains of an arborvitae. He had an unfortunate habit of falling off the ledge of the porch while being petted.Occasionally, he also walked into doors.

    Mmm, I'd say a raccoon is more likely an ENTP
    They're always up to some crazy stuff and highly, annoyingly so adaptable.

    I would consider the fox probably more INTP-like

    I could go with that, although INTPs are also very adaptable.

    I'm drawn to crows as well. but they're too damn raucous to be INTP. Still, I do have a collection of crows above the cupboards in my kitchen.

    I used to have a photograph from the early part of the twentieth century of two of my uncles sitting on the grass. One of them had his companion crow perched on his shoulder.

    The only bird I ever had perch on my shoulder while I walked around was a bantam hen.
