The IDRlabs Lion King Test (IDR-LKT©) was developed by IDRlabs International.

The IDRlabs Lion King Test has been developed by professionals experienced with personality typology and psychological assessment. While the characters considered by this test are fictitious, this quiz does use genuine psychometric items and analysis to ascertain the test taker’s closest resemblance to one of eight possible character matches.

Tests related to the Lion King franchise, whether they are professional, educational, or free online quizzes such as this, are merely first glances at some aspect of your personality. In the case of the present test, your results will give you a clue as to your personality match with one of eight possible characters (Simba, Nala, Timon, Pumba, Scar, Mufasa, Zazu, and Rafiki). Generally speaking, no test ever created can match your personality with complete accuracy or replace educating yourself about the relevant personality theories and models. For more information regarding the above characters specifically, you can consult official Lion King franchise materials.

As a character test centered on the movie Lion King, the present test yields descriptions such as the following: Simba – Simba went through an entire journey to become who he was born to be. As a cub, he was quite inquisitive and adventurous. He was lively and very playful. He optimistically envisioned his future life as a king with much power and self-esteem. He could not wait to be free to exercise his autonomy, which later led to danger. Together with Nala, they went to the forbidden Elephant Graveyard, where they met the hungry hyenas. The young Simba defended Zazu and acted bravely when he told the hyenas to fight someone their own size. He also tried to protect Nala by making a roar to scare them away. The older Simba shows courage in confronting Scar and in engaging in a battle with the hyenas.
