The Giraffe Personality

Portrait of a Giraffe Personality

Scientific Name

Giraffa camelopardalis

Collective Term

A loft of giraffe

Giraffes are graceful, well-groomed individuals who move with confidence and elegance found only in the big game animals. Michael Jordan is a typical giraffe. Tall, good-looking, and successful, he stands heads and shoulders above the rest of the animal kingdom. In full stride, giraffes look like they're flying -- their long legs pumping as they gallop effortlessly through life.

Giraffes are not arrogant but have an extraordinary need to be the center of attention. Although their highly visible frames make them somewhat self-conscious, they would never dream of hiding their height by stooping. Even though they might capitalize on their size they perpetually worry about what other people think, knowing that they're an easy target for jealous backbiters.
