How Human Are You? offers an interesting look at the way the behaviors among different species of animals are replicated among human beings. The show identifies the different actions and activities that both animals and people engage in when trying to exist in a group, including asserting dominance, flirting, and even bullying. Scientific explanations behind these behaviors are offered.

Some of the similarities between animal and human behavior is surprising. The explanations behind some of our human behaviors, including being seduced by good looks vs. good ideas, and choosing style vs. substance, is also a little uncomfortable to think about. Nonetheless, it also reminds us that we, unlike animals, have the capacity to make different choices if we want to.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
