What’s Your Story?: Five Animals, One Decision

There are five animals — a lion, a cow, a horse, a monkey and a rabbit.

If you were asked to leave one behind, which one would you leave behind?

This “personality test” was attributed to the Japanese by ING Direct USA Chairman Arkadi Kuhlmann, in NYT column “Corner Office” on 10/30/2010.

I decided to leave the lion behind.

It turns out each animal stands for something different: Lion for pride; cow for family; horse for work; monkey for friends; rabbit for love.

So I’d left pride behind. I’m OK with it, given other choices I can’t live without.
