Collective Term

A bouquet of peacocks

Though it is beautiful, sexy and nattily attired, the peacock persona is simple and uncomplicated. For reasons that date back to its youth, it has developed a taste for being at the center of attention -- craving the balm of constant praise and reassurance. A great deal of the peacock's time is spent in perfecting strategies that can enhance its personal status, and whether it's shopping for clothing or going to the gym to improve its already attractive body its preening borders on the obsessive.

Perched on top of a peacock's lovely neck is a rather small head, decorated by a shock of perfectly coiffed hair. Their designer wardrobe is obsessively maintained, and they spend a great deal of time primping before going out to strut their stuff. At heart, a peacock is an exhibitionist who enjoys nothing more than showing off and parading on the beach in skimpy attire. A great deal of money is spent in the pursuit of their beauty, and plastic surgery and body piercings are sometimes used to enhance their appearance.

Sporting events are fastidiously avoided, but peacocks do spend an inordinate amount of time in the gym perfecting every aspect of their well-developed body.

Natural primpers, peacocks flourish in all facets of the personal care business are well suited as models, dancers, actors or fitness instructors. Because of their love for beautiful objects they could excel as decorators or cosmetologists, while industrious peacocks can even become architects and designers.

As their beauty dims later in life a peacock might reexamine their priorities, return to school and learn a new trade. Most peacocks evolve different animal personalities to better cope with the fading of their luster as middle age approaches.
