Does anyone else do this?

Does anyone else kinda mentally make up fursonas for their non-furry friends? Because I always find myself just boredly sitting in class imagining what their fursona would be, lol

I can't imagine other people as furries for some strange reason. I have a difficult time even imagining those I know who are furries as their fursona. I don't know why it is either. I sometimes fantasize about myself as my fursona, which I prefer so much more, instead of my physical self. I feel that I'm a goat on a mental level and have a spirit likened unto a goat, so of course I can view myself as one, but not with anyone else and there respective fursona or would be fursona. It may be do to the fact that I don't know their true mental and spiritual state and thus I can't see which animal they would be. I also feel that chosing a fursona is sometimes a personal choice and not just an intuition, so some people choose a fursona simply because they like the species. For example, you can't predict someone would have a Pokémon fursona based on how they act, but they could very well choose to have a Pokémon fursona. I know it's simply imagination, but I sometimes have a litteral mind and think on a true and realistic level instead of an illusional world.

This is how I think of it too, because like you said many people don't display their entire true self on the outside.
For instance, someone who doesn't know I'm a furry said they thought I would be a red panda, and I was like, "what?!"
Though maybe I will make a red panda alt character on second thought lol

I did it once before, imaging what kind of animals my friends would be based on their personalities or body types.

YES. I thought I was the only one who did that! xD

I basically take their personalities, talents, likes, etc. into consideration, and then use that to decide what animal they'd be.

yes ive done this a lot lol

it's interesting to think the reverse too of what other animals people would think of me of
and it depends on what kinda personality and acts i have shown
some say dog, some say cat, or tiger or lion or even dragon or dinosaur
i think those are the main animals maybe also my obbsession with chickens would get me associated as one or the phases that i go through focusing on drawing one kinda animal and other people picking up on it

I do it sometimes, but not often. It's usually based around how they look and act, rather than what animals they like.
I do, however, have a page of notes on my phone that's just a list of what animals some fictional characters would be in a furry AU. I've started doing this with basically every new fandom I get into that has human characters.

I tend to do that too, occasionally.

I do this all the time. I like to imagine what type of animal a person would be taking into account both physical characteristics and personality.
The other day I found that my sibling has been doing it as well, even though he isn't a furry.  :fox-:P:

Yes. I imagine what it'd be like if everyone were to become an animal.
If it's a big person, big animal.
Smaller person, smaller animals.
