    Monkeys have the classic profile for roles where the customer service ethic is important and where they are promoting, training or motivating others.

     

    A Monkey will thoroughly enjoy social activities as well as exploring new places and developing alternative ideas.  Characters with this profile are natural communicators, recognisable by their expressive style. They enjoy interaction and can initiate conversations in the most unusual places, displaying little fear of strangers.

     

    Monkeys are naturally positive and optimistic: they are good at promoting ideas and creating enthusiasm for projects.  They want to influence the thoughts and feelings of colleagues, however they may have difficulty listening.  Characters such as this are often “talkers” with a real feel for their audience.

     

    Freedom from routine and repetition is important for Monkeys, because they become bored very easily.  They are not particularly comfortable with tasks that demand tedious, methodical routines, preferring creativity to a set procedure. Creatures of this type like to interpret the rules and regulations to give themselves maximum flexibility. Monkeys tend to be quite transparent characters; their facial expressions often reveal what they are thinking.  However, their impulsiveness, coupled with their desire to help others, can sometimes impede their ability to organise themselves. They are not very inclined towards self-discipline; Monkeys can have difficulty establishing their priorities.

     

    A Monkey can increase his/her effectiveness by developing their self-discipline and paying greater attention to detail, particularly with routine, repetitive tasks.  This type need to be careful that they do not over-estimate what they can achieve.  They are usually popular characters and can often turn their hand to a range of different tasks. Monkeys are capable of gaining the confidence and respect of other creatures and they usually make a favourable first impression on most animals that they come into contact with. Status, prestige and the trappings of success are important to them – they thrive on variety and change.
