The Eagle Personality

Portrait of an Eagle Personality

Scientific Name

Aquila chrysaetos

Collective Term

A convocation of eagles

"There is an eagle in me that wants to soar, and there is a hippopotamus in me that wants to wallow in the mud" ~Carl Sandburg

Universally admired for their soaring spirits, the eagle has a striking presence that exudes a powerful sexual energy. As is typical of bird personalities, their high metabolisms make them edgy and unable to remain in one place for long. These fascinating creatures are natural explorers and traveling is their greatest love; nothing gets their juices flowing more than a flight to an exotic locale.

Sleek and well groomed, the eagle's looks are striking. However, they occasionally have minor aesthetic flaws - perhaps a bald spot or big nose - but they nevertheless exude a strong sexual energy that turns heads. They enjoy most outdoor activities and have a particular affinity for extreme sports like sky diving, rock climbing, or bungee jumping.

Outdoor jobs are coveted, and eagles enjoy working in the hot sun as a construction worker, serving in a natural setting as a park ranger or piloting the friendly skies. The proverbial legal eagle, they also enjoy the creative freedom of litigation, police, and detective work.

However, eagles are truly at their best when performing for others. Like the wild eagle whose aerial displays attract a large audience, they are in their element when singing, acting, or telling stories. Their enthusiasm for life comes at a price. Eagles are always on, proving tiresome to their families and coworkers.

Like other birds, eagles tend to be flighty and emotionally jittery. Avoiding commitment, they prefer to keep moving, often for no other reason than the sheer joy of exploration. More than any other animal eagles love to travel (predictably preferring to fly), rarely alighting to integrate with the locals. They are consummate voyeurs and prefer to people-watch with their eagle eyes.
