For peacocks, life is about living. It’s all for the adventure and having a bit of fun. Peacocks believe that you only get one chance at it. So, go big! ‘Go for the good things in life.

When you’ve made it, take a bow and embrace the applause that goes with it because you deserve it. Being recognised is a nice feeling, isn’t it?’ Well, that’s how peacocks see it.

How to engage with a peacock

Do accept the fact that they like talking about themselves

Do understand that they exaggerate everything

Do understand that they are emotional.

Do appreciate they like to touch and cuddle

Do appreciate they like to have fun

Do accept the fact that they are unorganised

Do accept that when they’re down, they’re really down.

Don’t expect them to take a logical approach

Don’t lock them into repetitious tasks and environments

Don’t expect them to be good listeners

Don’t expect them to be quiet for too long

Don’t expect them to let you have the last word

Don’t expect them to be a homebody.

 

The actor... the dramatist… the entertainer.

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

However, peacocks love to solve problems, which is a positive character trait. Likely, the conversation will end in a peacock saying, “let’s forget it and all be friends.”

Ahh, we could all use with more of those types of relationships.
