You're a Falcon!

Motto: Everything's negotiable

3 percent of the UK population are Falcons.
Falcons are the fastest animals in the world, flying up to about 120 miles per hour and like them a Falcon personality can also be fast with words and actions, moving quickly from idea to idea and task to task. Falcons migrate and often like to try out new experiences. When they speak, Falcons are loud!
Falcon strengths

Falcons are imaginative and spontaneous problem-solvers who love learning new skills. Alert, outspoken and always interesting company, they find it very easy to communicate, making them natural negotiators. Falcons are accident-prone risk-takers who enjoy variety and action and who tend to leave things until the last minute. They get bored easily and soon like to move on to something new.

As children

Imaginative and creative, Falcons often have a great sense of humour and strive to be different with their own unique sense of style. They like nothing more than to push boundaries and enjoy negotiating changes in the rules.

As young people

They're adventurous, direct and assertive. They tend to ask why? Often popular but can be a threat to some teachers or adults who don't always appreciate their original thinking!

As a boyfriend/girlfriend

They try hard to impress their partner and they're usually witty and clever company.

As a boss

Energetic, visionary, direct and flexible. Task-focused and can be risk takers. Generally keen to share their thoughts. Create a fast-paced and fun environment and like people who can 'fly by the seat of their pants'. Tend to like and offer freedom and independence to their team members.

Tips for Falcons

Don't judge yourself too harshly; you can be your own worst critic.

Personality-type theory has roots in the work of Carl Jung. It was further developed as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator©.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and MBTI are registered trademarks. It has been researched and applied across many areas including conflict resolution, business (team building and leadership), course/careers choice and communication. The breadth and depth of this work make personality type a very useful approach for young people and their advisers.

The Buzz quiz was developed by icould partner David Hodgson to help teenagers make more informed course and career decisions, boost self-awareness and help us better understand each other.

See our interview with Buzz Quiz creator David Hodgson to find out more about personality and careers.
