You're a Lion!

Motto: Let's try this!

Eight percent of the UK population are Lions.

Lions are very sociable cats. They enjoy being with their families and relatives and like having fun as a way to be close to their loved ones. Lions are graceful and skilful in sport or leisure activities they like.
Lion strengths

Lions are generous, friendly and great communicators so they are 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.

Lions:
  • Enthusiastic with a zest for life, often active and energetic
  • Fun-loving and enjoy being with groups of people. Usually the life and soul of a party - if there isn't a party, they'll create one!
  • Respond well to playing and surprises but may need to rest and recharge their batteries from time-to-time
  • See life as full of adventures and experiences to try out and enjoy - love the outdoors
  • Dislike routine and conflict - may try to please everyone, which is difficult all of the time
As a leader

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

Find out more about the Buzz Quiz

The Buzz Quiz was developed by Education and Employers' partner David Hodgson to help young people make more informed course and career decisions, boost self-awareness, and better understand others.

Find out more about personality and careers in our interview with Buzz Quiz creator David Hodgson.

Explore these ideas in more detail and see how they apply to young people's lives and choices with David's book The Buzz.

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.
