MASTERY, CHALLENGE, INDEPENDENCE
Although they can appear self-sustaining and emotionally detached from the people around them, Eagles are very sensitive and can easily become devastated by ridicule, especially from their peers or people they respect. While they don’t actively seek conflict, neither will they shy away from it and often enjoy a robust discussion or good debate. They make very good independent learners and can be avid readers who enjoy assignments that let them use their own initiative and intelligence. Driven to excel and become proficient with all tasks, Eagles will strive for excellence and won’t settle for anything less. They will only share their work when they they believe it be of high enough quality, and also when they believe you are worthy of sharing it with in the first place!
At school, the Eagle is the one most likely to be doing their own thing disregarding actual expectations. An expert in their chosen area of interest, at work they like to display extensive knowledge of their chosen subject whist ignoring topics that hold no appeal to them. In business they are drawn to roles requiring superior knowledge, expansive thinking and creative problem solving. They can make excellent leaders, using their formidable organisational ability to motivate others efficiently and expertly, but they have to be careful not to upset people with their sometimes overly pragmatic approach to convention.
