You only have a limited amount of water left - not enough for you and all your animals to escape. If you run out of water all of you will die in the desert.

You realize that if you are to make it out of the desert at all, you are going to have to make a tough decision. You are going to have to leave one of the animals behind so that the rest of you may live.

Analysis

Each of the animals represent the following aspects of your life.

  • The cow represents your desire to help and care for others.
  • The lion represents pride and courage.
  • The monkey represents your desire to create harmony in a group.
  • The horse represents something that you are very passionate about.
  • The goat represents wealth and abundance.

The order in which you sacrifice the animals might be said to represent the importance of these things to you. The one that you sacrificed first is the least important. The one that you kept is the most important and represents what you would hold on to at the expense of everything else.

I found this analysis lacking. There are many reasons why a person might leave various animals behind and the results won't match up to the human reasoning. For example, you have a horse and miles to go...right? My mind says ride the horse and have the monkey ride with you. A horse can cover those miles and you would reserve water usage by riding. So much for the tested theories. A lion could go quite a distance with its strength and stamina, I would not worry so much about it. The goat would have enough water to make it by the amount of water spared by the monkey not needing as much because it too is riding on the horse.

Sorry, I just think this test lacks the ability to really classify human reasoning into some fixed equation.

I'd leave them behind in this order:

1st: Lion (Pride and Courage)

2nd: Cow (Desire to Help and Care for Others)

3rd: Goat (Wealth and Abundance)

4th: Monkey (Desire to create Harmony in a Group)

5th: Horse (Something I'm very passionate about)

I left the lion because I figured that if it was thirsty and scared it might get aggressive. I next left the cow, because it's the biggest animal, so if it got weak from dehydration I couldn't attempt to carry it to water; and the water this one animal would use could be split up between everyone else. I left the goat next simply because it is mostly an instinctual animal and less conscious than a monkey or horse. I left the monkey next because it can't reciprocate the help I give it by helping me in return. I kept the horse because it's an intelligent creature that I can trust, love, and help, and it can help me by allowing me to ride it.

I left friendship, my children, pride and basic needs behind. Just because I thought that I could ride the horse :\

What I do treasure the most is passion and what I treasure least is friendship.

This one's quite accurate
