Insightful and spiritual, you are an Owl!

You use your senses to guide you and most enjoy working in solitude, only venturing out when necessary. A logical thinker, you appreciate data and insight, and you will state your opinion persuasively. Others find you trustworthy and hardworking, as you take your responsibilities seriously. An observer of the world – you love to generate ideas and are able to turn your head to see problems from different angles.

Decisive and bold, you are an Eagle!

You are a natural born achiever and a problem solver who loves to take charge of a situation, cutting straight to the point. Full of energy and spirit – your storytelling is second to none, but your always ‘on’ personality can turn into restlessness when bored. Others admire your visionary and risk-taking nature – and turn to you in times of crisis. You love having lively, challenging conversations, turning any discovered theories into plans.

Your CharityComms superpower – you are born to lead so consider becoming a mentor.


Outgoing and talkative, you are the parrot!

Your flock is a large network of collaborative relationships that inspire you to innovate and vocalise.

Intelligent and independent, you are a crow!

Original and possibly eccentric, you trust your own opinions above others and others may see you as a bit of a guru! Your drive for knowledge means you can easily while the hours away on a new idea or theory. Not the leader of the pack as you dislike controlling others and you are a true introvert – preferring to forage alone, while getting lost in your own thoughts.

Flamboyant and the centre of attention, you are a Peacock!

If there is someone to start talking first, it’s going to be you! Your enthusiasm and positivity are infectious, but you don’t like being limited by time. You thrive in a social environment, preferring to speak face-to-face and this allows you to easily influence your peers. Others think your preening borders on the obsessive, but you accept this criticism as an inevitable consequence of being totally fabulous!

Artistic and intelligent, you are a Penguin!

Unable to fly, your excess energy is suited to writing and creative pursuits. When it comes to intelligence you are a dark horse and become animated, but modest when mentally challenged – you love a puzzle! Others admire your writing style which is your ideal outlet of expression. You are a team player, so don’t be alarmed if you find yourself huddling with others to preserve motivation.

Sensitive and loyal – you are the dove!

You dream of a better world and your overriding drivers are to create harmony and help others.

Passionate and Flashy, you are the Flamingo!
