You're a Lion!

Motto: Let's try this!

8 percent of the UK population are Lions.

Lions are very sociable cats. They enjoy being with their families and relatives. They like socialising and having fun as a way to be close to their loved ones.

Lions are graceful and skillful in sport or leisure activities that interest them.
Lion strengths

Lions are generous, friendly and great communicators so they are pretty good at knowing what's going on.

As natural performers, they like to join in with people and have bundles of enthusiasm, making them popular team members.

As children

Often active and energetic, Lions enjoy activities and are usually the life and soul of a party, and if there isn't a party, they'll create one!

Lions love the outdoors, puddles, forests, you name it! They see life as full of adventures and experiences to try out and enjoy. Fun-loving Lions respond well to playing and surprises but they may need to be encouraged to rest and recharge their batteries from time to time!

As young people

They're usually popular and enthusiastic with a zest for life. They dislike routine and conflict - they may try to please everyone, which is difficult all of the time.

As a boyfriend/girlfriend

They're usually great fun to be with. They enjoy being with groups of people, not just as a couple.

As a boss

Energetic, caring and flexible. People-focused. Can be risk takers. Generally keen to share their thoughts and create a fast-paced and fun environment. Tend to like and offer freedom and independence to their team members.

Tips for Lions

Don't play all of the time - recharge your batteries.

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.

The book The Buzz explains the ideas further and applies these to the lives and choices facing young people.
