You are a Raven Survivalist! (The Artful Dodger)

Picture of a Raven


Universally admired for their sharp intelligence, ravens have a striking presence that exudes confidence and energy. As is typical of bird personalities, their high metabolisms make them edgy and unable to remain in one place for long, and nothing gets their juices flowing more than an intellectual or physical challenge. Sleek and well groomed, ravens do not adjust well to repetitive work. When they find themselves in this predicament, they become unsettled and perform poorly, unless they find a way to make the work more creative and challenging. Ravens can definitely be show-offs, but they don't have quite the same preoccupation with physical beauty as peacocks. Instead, they prefer to impress others with their abilities, like card tricks and setting sports records. This is perhaps why, unlike the more powerful eagle personality, the thought of flying solo terrifies them. It's not that they can't survive without friends and family, but it’s hard to be the smartest guy in the room when there’s no one else around!

If there’s a downside to being a raven personality, it’s that they 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. They are consummate voyeurs and are always collecting information about themselves and their neighbors.


A Raven Survivalist is the type of person who sees the big picture and instinctively knows how to manipulate it to benefit themselves. Highly analytical and intelligent people, the Raven Prepper would rather talk his or her way out of a disaster scenario, rather than bully their way out.

This type of survivalist is more likely to befriend another survivalist and borrow from his survival stash, rather than doing their own hard work. With extreme confidence in their ability to control situations, they don't like being on their own, and prefer small groups they can control. With this reliance on others, ravens get into trouble when real disasters hit and the preppers they thought would be around to help have scuttled into the woods.
