You're a Polar bear!
Motto: I know exactly what I'm doing
Polar bears are strong and determined. They are at the top of their food chain and they can enjoy being the boss. To hunt for food, they have to learn and perfect their skills.
They also like to perfect their skills and then use them throughout their life. Polar bears can spend a lot of time on their own and be perfectly happy while in their own company.
Polar bears are quiet and steady workers that pay attention to detail and like to stick to something until they get the job done. They are great at making decisions and following plans or rules, and usually like to be able to use skills that they've already learned.
Intense and serious, Polar bears are trying to make sense of their world. They prefer solitary interests that require precision and skill rather than team games and hobbies.
Polar bears value routine and structure and like to learn by being shown and correcting privately. They are keen to research and gain knowledge on subjects in detail, often becoming an expert in the things that they learn.
Often more adult than many of the adults around them! They value their independence, privacy and personal space. They're dependable, loyal and responsible.
They're usually more practical, loyal and sensible than romantic and spontaneous.
Direct and fair, respect and follow procedures, expect deadlines to be met, task-focused.
Take a break sometimes and praise people around you.
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.
