Everyone’s probably heard of the Myers-Briggs personality test, where you can determine if you are an introvert, extrovert, empathetic, and various other traits. They’re useful in understanding more about yourself and how you see the world, but did you know dogs have one too? After all, it’s not uncommon for man’s best friend to act like its owner, and the various archetypes that exist in your dog’s subconscious can be an indicator about what personality it has.
A dog’s personality is often based on how it acts and responds to various situations and stimuli, and that’s what the dog personality test tries to measure. So they’ll ask you questions like “What toy does your dog play with first?” “What is your dog’s walking style?” and “What does your dog do when they are alone?”
Then the personality types come into play based on your answers, and they include: “The Boss” “Dreamer” and “Empath.” While it’s a fun way to get to understand your dog, it should be taken with a grain of salt, as you as the owner are taking the quiz. Not your dog. Although if you can get your dog to read or understand what’s on a computer screen and answer questions, then you don’t need a test, because your dog is smart!
If you want a test that your dog can do, there are various challenges that you can give them to test their IQ points. Such as hiding treats, giving them puzzles, and running them through obstacle courses to get their toys. Figuring out how smart, or silly, your dog is can be fun. Most dogs were bred to be intelligent, and you can really see the smarts behind their eyes and see if it’s real. Plus, the tests will get you closer to your fido!
