This is a bad test. People will choose which animals to release first based on logic and the need of survival. They will not consider the symbolic meaning behind each when making this choice. Who actually would figure that the lion meant pride before they read the answers?

Here's how I took the test:
The lion would go first, cause it cannot help me survive. In fact, it is a theat - it will most likely eat me or my other animals before I release it.
The monkey also serves no purpose. It would go next.
The sheep's fur may protect my skin from the heat. It will also keep me warm at night. It is a useful animal, but not as useful as the next two.
The cow produces milk, to satisfy my thirst.
The horse will allow me to travel across the desert faster- hopefully I can reach home before I die of dehydration and starvation.

When I finished making my choice, I read the answers, but they have nothing to do with my line of thinking. I did not abandon my pride because I value it the least - I abandoned it because it will kill me. What does a monkey have to do with children anyway? Useless animal. The cow makes some sense, but it still does not prove that I value basic needs above my children, friends, and pride. Or maybe it does- when I'm facing death? Horribly inaccurate test though.

I will point out that a flaw in this current test is the way it is executed. You fail to do this test step by step; each step requiring you to dispose of one animal before you reach the end with only one of the original five animals.

Next, you gave the answers away at the very start of the questionnaire. What's the point in that?

er....I think people are missing the point....

The animals have nothing to do with it...
They're symbolic....
You don't eat the animals...or have them help you...

It's about sacrifice...
In what order would you give up these things to survive...



No, I did the test on a different site before where the answers were not revealed until the end. So you see, I made sacrifices without knowing what they were, whereas everyone else here made sacrifices based on what they perceive to be the "common moral good".

What you've done, is essentially the same as getting the answers to your exam paper, copying them down and regurgitating it on exam day and getting full marks. Did you make any real sacrifice? No. Because you knew the answers before hand.

You are in the desert. You are traveling with 5 animals:

A Lion
A Monkey
A Sheep
A Cow and
A Horse

It is a long way more to the safety of civilization, and one by one, you are forced to release each animal, until you are left with only one. In what order would you get rid of each animal from your possession?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The desert represents hardship. Each animal represents the following:

A Lion - Pride
A Monkey - Your Children
A Sheep - Friendship
A Cow - Basic Needs
A Horse - Your Passion

So, in the face of hardship, you will sacrifice each of these things in turn. Your last animal represents that thing which you cling to at the expense of all others.



note:this test is from ancient japanese archetypes


oh i love these kind of tests!

this one is pretty simple. The best one i've come up with is the robin hood one though
