For the Peacock personality bird type, life is about living. It’s all for the spirit adventure, where fun prevails above all else. Peacocks believe that you only get one chance at life. They’re not wrong. This is a ‘bigger than life’ personality.

It’s hard to miss a Peacock. Their energy is infectious and so is their outlook. They’re the ‘go big or go home’ type. Peacocks need to be recognised.

Here are some other tell-tale signs you’re in the company of a Peacock (or you’re one yourself).

The performer, the showman (or woman)

Peacocks are confident and friendly. In conflicts, they’re noisy and dramatic. This bird type is more bark than bite. Under stress, Peacocks are apologetic and friendly, but can become manipulative. ‘I was only joking’ is a common statement.

The good news is, Peacocks love to solve problems. They won’t just leave something unresolved. If anything, they’ll create closure by saying: ‘let’s just forget it and move past on.” Peacocks are great teammates.
