In last article, we saw the various types of personalities viz. Eagle, Dove, Owl, and Peacock… We briefly touched upon the general personality traits of all these different personalities.
Now, let’s understand each personality in detail and the actionable on our part to have a smooth relationship with the personality.
Today we will deal with Eagle.
Well, each one of us will have certain perceptions about bird Eagle. While many of them would be common perceptions and some would be personal choices or experiences.
So generally we look up to Eagle respectfully. a Bird that flies High.. not seen very commonly around us and hence mostly we have seen Eagle in pictures and Movies.
Another observation about eagles is that the Bird is never seen in flocks. Most of the time we seem him flying all alone. There are some really inspiring stories around the Bird Eagle..
Today lets talk and understand the Eagles in humans and how they impact us.
Eagle is a noble hunter. An aggressive bird – person. They are independent, ambitious and task-oriented people and like to do things in their own way, so result-focused goal setting is ‘natural’ to them. They are authoritative, controlling, daring, strong-willed, determined, goal-centered, direct, forthright, demanding and self-confident.
Typical eagle behavior
They are bold, fast-paced, energetic, dominant, forceful, highly analytical, accountable and decisive. They are motivated by challenges, power, winning, competition, achievement, and success – a natural leader.
They are not afraid of failure and just see it as a challenge to bounce back. They value competency, action, concrete results and personal freedom. They prioritize taking action and achieving immediate results. They are persistent in achieving goals, even if it means making personal sacrifices to get there. They take risks. They like being productive and making progress. They are natural achievers and place an emphasis on shaping the environment by overcoming opposition to accomplish the result.
Extreme Eagle Behavior:
They may be blunt, stubborn, can lose sight of the big picture and can be insensitive to other people’s needs.
They can be sometimes dominating, demanding, aggressive, pushy, impatient and volatile
They may be autocratic, argumentative, controlling, dictatorial and judgmental
They might be poor listeners, abrasive, irritable and belligerent. Eagle influenced personalities are power-hungry, ruthless, egocentric, unpredictable and paranoid.
What turns on Eagle?
Eagles love to accept challenges, create action and achieve results. They are driven to overcome opposition in order to accomplish goals. They are quick to seize opportunities that allow them to assume control of their environment. If they know that there are rewards and recognition available for those who produce the best results, they will be among the top performers. In pursuing their goals, Eagles sometimes regard the opinions of others as obstacles rather than helpful suggestions. They possess a remarkable ability to thrive in difficult and demanding environments.
What turns off Eagle?
Eagles are irritated by anything that they perceive to be a waste of their time. They have little tolerance for long, repetitive discussions, particularly when firm decisions are not reached so that tasks can get underway immediately. It is best not to mention anything to Eagles which can’t or won’t take place until well into the future, because they will become frustrated if they can’t start on it right away. Plan ahead what you want to communicate to Eagles, and say it as briefly and to the point as possible. Avoid telling Eagles more details than they actually want or need to know. It frustrates them to have to read through apparently irrelevant information to get to the bottom of any message.
Having authority, lots of action, challenges, being the best, making decisions, deadlines, goals, public recognition, responsibility, competition, independence, important tasks, negotiating, opportunities to gain status, practicality, power and control, productivity, speed, taking charge, winning, leadership roles, hard work, taking tough decisions.
Indecision, slow-pace, bureaucracy, excuses, small talk, irresponsibility, dependency, lack of initiative, overly sensitive people, apathy, irrelevant information, long-explanations, having little to do, delay in decision making, having to follow orders, close supervision, obstructive practices, self-pity.
Eagles are motivated by:
Competition – real or imagined, important goals that must be met within a deadline, roles to keep them challenged and busy, authority to negotiate and make some decisions, independence without close supervision, tough assignments, leadership roles – formal and informal, opportunities to achieve higher status, public recognition for their accomplishments, productivity and initiative in others.
Eagles prefer to:
Compete to win or to achieve targets. Have the authority to take the decisions necessary to achieve goals, solve problems physically, work without a lot of assistance, make decisions that save time, handle strong pressures, meet tight deadlines, get right to the bottom-line, be given clear instructions, negotiate conditions, break rules if necessary, live and work in an environment that allows them to be in control and create results.
What to watch out for:
You may lose sight of the big picture. You may not pay enough attention to details, leading to lack of adequate planning. You may choose goals for the thrill of the chase or from being impulsive, rather than well thought out goals that you really want. You can be inflexible, impatient and easily bored with detail, which can make you take needless risks. You can be stubborn and sometimes too confident for your own good.
Use your natural goal-setting ability to your advantage – write them down and take the time to plan properly. Regularly review your ‘big picture’ and make sure you are still heading in the right direction. Be flexible enough to change your track if necessary. A change in plan is not a failure. Consider other people’s feelings and let them help you achieve. As an eagle, you will find success because of your own natural ambition, drive, and motivation.
