THE WOLF PERSONALITY
No animal has been as misunderstood as the wolf. Cast as a bloodthirsty villain in folklore and children's stories, wolves have enjoyed a special mystique that has engendered fear and respect throughout their range. The rugged wolf is athletic, good-looking and brimming with self-confidence. A close relative of the domestic dog personality, it is stronger and more aggressive, managing to generate notoriety wherever it marks its territory. The wolf's dark reputation is mainly due to jealousy of its consistent success in work and romance, and a wolf in full stride is quite impressive. Firing orders at subordinates while on the phone to customers, no one can get the job done quite as efficiently as the wolf. With an innate understanding of the value of teamwork, it's always ready to take its place in the chain of command either as leader or as simply a member of the pack. When a wolf decides to innovate, it makes sure that it has the backing of a capable team. The wolf is clear-headed and strong-minded, always willing to compromise in the interests of getting a job done.
Wolves are facially expressive and readily communicate their emotional states with body language. They work hard at developing their social relationships, although unlike their cousin the dog they are quick to anger when they sense threats to the social order. When confrontations occur, they sometimes react suddenly and violently, barking displeasure at offending subordinates. Close companions know to avoid their biting tongue until they resume their normal gregarious behavior. Wolves are intensely ambitious and never shy from hard work. Socially adept, they function well in leadership and management roles as well as in jobs requiring vision and strength of character. Being a natural motivator, their instinctive understanding of group dynamics serves them well in goal-oriented tasks.
THE WOLF SURVIVALIST
Wolves are considered by people in the prepping business to be the top of the line Prepper. These are people who spend long hours at the shooting range or socializing with other Preppers, and always have survival in the forefront of their thoughts. Their mission is to prepare themselves (and family) for any potential disaster, including EMPs, nuclear attacks or riots and general mayhem in their neighborhood. They are evangelists whose goal is to get everyone they know (and everyone they don't know) to become Preppers too. The Wolf is a proud gun toting member of the NRA, and capable of achieving anything they set their minds to in regards to Prepping. They’re the ones at the shooting range, taking special ops classes, and seem like over-the-top Preppers to the 97% of people who have to be dragged into Prepping. The wolf's main problem is that their ego is so inflated -- and confidence so high -- that they may take the more complicated road when the simple path will do. They will fight to the death to defend their sovereign rights and will do the same for their neighbors. While intimidating in appearance, many are actually teddy bears at heart who care deeply about the plight of others.
