Magical, mythical me - Are you a brave lion, intelligent owl, playful panda or a mixture of all three? Reimagine yourself as a mythical creature with magical powers to match.

Question quest - Questions are an essential part of learning about and understanding ourselves, other people and the world around us. And different questions reveal different answers. Explore which are most useful, and why…
