Egyptian, Roman, Greek, and Japanese mythology are intense. So is Norse mythology.

As long as there are crazy gods with cool powers, they're pretty intense.

I love mythology as a whole and all the various cultural types, but Greek mythology is definitely a favorite of mine, especially after reading the Percy Jackson series. Japanese and Norse mythology are pretty fascinating too.

Do you like mythology?
Of course!

Do you want to study it?
I read bits and pieces from time to time... I guess that's studying

What culture's mythology is your favorite?
Hmmm... each one has its joys. I like guess as someone has pointed out earlier, the study of christian myths. All mythologies have common threads and similar stories. Almost all for example, have a flood myth. There's typically a bird like creature of huge importance, a snake or dragon of great importance,etc...

What mythological story is your favorite?
It's hard to pick. Personally I love the stories that involve tricksters. Usually trickster gods are ones most like us. Weak and not particularly good at anything, but verrrrry cunning. From Brer Rabbit to Odysseus, they're all great. The other types of stories I like are the ones that are just fully of symbolism. The Rape of Persephone, the story of Kali being formed on the battlefield, Gilgamesh... All very heavy on the metaphorical bend. But today.. This moment in time? Hmmm... what about Ratatoskr? The squirrel that nibbles on the world tree in Norse myths.

I like mythology and folklore. I remember some Greek, some Irish, some African, some Caribbean, one Indian, Hindu and one Australian.

I'm more familiar with Greek and Roman mythology than any others (discounting my own religion, of course). My favorite stories are the Trojan War and The Odyssey.

I have an absolute love for Egyptian mythology. So much so that I have many many books on the subject. I have also visited egypt once and hope to visit again just because it's such an amazing place and the mythology is absolutely astounding.

Greek/Roman without a doubt. Then again I haven't much ventured into anything else. I like where I'm at, what can I say. I actually am in the process of changing my major to Classical Studies with a concentration in Greek, so yeah. Picking a favorite is hard. I have a soft spot for Hades and just his overall story, but I find Apollo fascinating. He's a brat and arguably meaner than some of the others when it comes to his 'punishments'. Dude doesn't like to be rejected. I can't really pick a favorite story since there are way, way too many. Those two are my favorite Gods though, and I guess all the myths they come with.
