    Owls might find it difficult to handle the pressure of upper-level management or of owning their own business. They are often attracted to roles where their specialist expertise is recognised and of value – positions such as investigative work, scientific evaluation and analysis.

     

    An Owl is usually a patient and considerate creature, willing to support like-minded types.  These characters have a modest demeanour and are somewhat shy and retiring.  Owls will tend to listen rather than talk and may sometimes have difficulty expressing their views. 

     

    Security and stability are important to Owls and they tend to be consistent in their work effort.  Methodical and organised, they like to plan and structure their activities. To be seen as knowledgeable on their subject and proficient in their particular area enhances their self-esteem and confidence.

     

     Owls are good at research and will tend to immerse themselves in information to support their position.  They like to study and intellectual challenges stimulate them.  Owls usually monitor and critique their own performance fairly carefully – but they may have difficulty acknowledging their mistakes.  Creatures of this type are often intent on doing things a certain way and may require help in finding short cuts or starting new initiatives.

     

    Owls are not naturally confident individuals, so they will benefit from genuine appreciation and reinforcement from their colleagues.  They need to be careful that they do not get too bogged down in the detail of their assignments.  These characters are not particularly interested in pleasing others; in fact, they sometimes avoid close personal relationships.  How well a job is done is often more important to Owls than how quickly it is carried out.

     

    Experience tells us that Owls often prefer to keep a low profile. They appreciate opportunities to verify a decision – sometimes they need reassurance that what they are doing is correct.  Characters with this profile may not be that comfortable if they have to sell things or if they are exposed to risk.  They appreciate having systems and procedures to follow. An Owl is not inclined to cut corners – they pay attention to the detail.
