Alert, outspoken and always interesting company, they find it very easy to communicate, making them natural negotiators. Falcons are accident-prone risk-takers. They enjoy variety and action and tend to leave things until the last minute.

  • Enjoy pushing boundaries and negotiating changes in the rules
  • Easily get bored and like to move on to new things
  • Adventurous, direct and assertive – tend to ask ‘Why?’
  • Often popular but can be a threat to some teachers or adults who don't always appreciate their original thinking!
  • Try hard to impress
  • Usually witty and clever company
As a leader

Energetic, visionary, direct and flexible. Generally keen to share their thoughts. Create a fast-paced and fun environment and like people who act instinctively. Tend to offer freedom and independence to their team members.

Personality-type theory has roots in the work of Carl Jung, the founder of analytic psychology. It was later developed by Isabel Briggs Myers, as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator©, and David Keirsey's Temperament Sorter. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and MBTI are registered trademarks.

The theory has been researched and applied across many areas including conflict resolution, team-building, leadership, career choices and communication.

Our animal type describes our preferred behaviour. We can all learn to adapt and change our behaviour to suit the circumstances and challenges we face.
