Which Bird Personality Type Are You?

We love personality tests because they teach us more about ourselves, and now you can learn what your bird personality style says about you.

Yasir Osman of Leadernomics.com says the ‘DOPE [dove, owl, peacock, eagle] personality test divides people into four bird groups, i.e. the ‘neutral dove’, ‘analytical owl’, ‘relational pea- cock’ and ‘decisive eagle’. These bird groups represent different personalities. All the birds have their different basic desires, emotional needs, controlling factors and characteristics.’

What Does Your “Bird Personality” Reveal About You?

The 4 Bird Personality Test was created as a way for people to easily relate to the four personality categories. Because we are familiar with the 4 birds used, dove, owl, peacock, and eagle, we can relate the image of the animal and the typical personality traits that we might assign to each.

This makes it easier to remember your own personality style as represented by a bird. Representing personality styles with one of the four birds also helps you to picture a coworker, friend, family member, or romantic partner as a different bird personality style than your own.

Knowing the personality style of those around you helps you to partner better with them because you can see how they have a different perspective, strategy, and preference than you do. Each bird personality type has a different way of handling relationships, emotions, communication, and conflict.

Richard M. Stephenson of richardstep.com created the 4 Bird Personality test, also known as the D.O.P.E. or dove, owl, peacock, eagle test) ‘based off of the original four personality types test formulated by Dr. Gary Couture.’

We can easily understand the personality traits most closely associated with these four birds. We have seen representations of wise owls, peaceful doves, etc., so we can quickly categorize people as one of these four bird personalities once we know a little about them.

For example the following traits apply to the four bird personality types:

* Dove – peace-loving and kind

* Owl – logical and intelligent

* Peacock – showy and outgoing

* Eagle – bold and decisive

Personality tools like the 4 Bird Personality test can help people to become more aware of their own instinctual responses to conflict. A study by the Marquette University Law School found that these types of personality tests help people to understand the behavior of others, especially when it comes to negotiating conflict.

Knowledge of another’s personality gives you insight into their strengths and weaknesses. It also helps you to learn their preferred way of making decisions so that you can make sure to provide all of the information that they need, help them to manage their feelings about the decision, and try to create a win-win for both people.

Remember as you read the description that this is meant to be a tool used for guidance learning about strengths and opportunities, and helping you to work your best with other bird personalities. Let’s look more in-depth at what your bird personality reveals about you.
