You're a Barn owl!
Motto: I'll work it out myself
Barn owls are symbols of intelligence, determination and wisdom; qualities usually shared with the INTJ. A Barn owl hunts quietly over grassland looking for small animals. INTJs can seem to be flying high, thinking big ideas quietly, while paying attention to the small details to solve problems and develop plans.
Patient and methodical, Barn owls are great with complicated situations and working on things for a long time. They are natural planners and imaginative problems solvers that are often good at being careful with facts. They are keen to research and gain knowledge on subjects in detail, often becoming an expert in the things that they learn.
Intense and serious, Barn owls are trying to make sense of their world and usually value routine and structure. They prefer interests that require precision and skill rather than team games and hobbies and enjoy the opportunity to create new ideas and opportunities. Barn owls like to learn by being shown and corrected privately.
At their best, they're clever, creative visionaries with the determination to achieve their goals, which means they may be considered distant, private and argumentative.
They're usually quite independent but can appear tougher than they really are. They often like to share their passions, ideas and beliefs.
Visionary, direct and organised. Detailed planners. Strategic and challenging. Like to stretch themselves and their team members. Tend to like and offer independence to their team members but will expect success in return.
Forgive yourself for not always reaching your own high standards.
