You're a Seal!

Motto: How will that affect everyone else?

3 percent of the UK population are Seals.

Seals can be imaginative, supportive and playful around their social group. They can also be quiet and careful on land, wondering whether to jump in and trust their instincts or suss out a person or situation first.
Seal strengths

Seals are great at multi-tasking, often working on many things at once and love learning new skills. They are full of enthusiasm and interested in thinking behind an idea, and looking at how things affect people.

As children

Seals are emotional dreamers that can be clingy toddlers, needing a parent to reassure and support. Often sweet and affectionate, they like to look after younger children around them. Mostly easy-going and good-natured, Seals see people as more important than rules and tend to have a few good friends.

As young people

Seals have strong inner values and beliefs that they like to live by - others can sometimes see them as sensitive, complex and deep. They travel through their teens trying to work out who they are and want to be.

As a boyfriend/girlfriend

They're usually romantic and loving and expect the same from their partner. Can be funny. Likely to be very sensitive to criticism.

As a boss

A natural coach, Seals are quiet and caring bosses. They are people-focused, often bringing original approaches to their role.

Tips for Seals

Don't get lost inside your thoughts; involve others.

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.
