There is no animal type that shines brighter in the spotlight than the fun-loving, gregarious Peacock. All Hunters love to be excited, but there are two that stand out for their capacity when it comes to fully appreciating the world’s sensory pleasures; and no one would ever confuse the flamboyant Peacocks with the gentle Butterflies.

The Hedonist

Cookie Monster

Today, me will live in the moment unless it’s unpleasant, in which case, me will eat a cookie.

– Cookie Monster, Sesame Street

There is a tragic irony in striving for immortality in a moment; regardless of however many times a Peacock basks in glory, the moment never lasts as long as they want it to, and there will always be other people, i.e., other Peacocks, seeking the spotlight… Preorder The Power of Personality to learn more!
