Welcome to the systematic and analytical inner world of the Owl. Owls have a preference for introversion and enjoy their inner world of thoughts more so than the company of other kids. They are wise, competent, and typically easy-going with a knack for solving complex problems in unconventional ways. They’re happiest in unstructured environments where they are free to think, tinker, and figure out how things work. Owls tend to be quiet observers who are satisfied by watching people or activities but don’t necessarily participate unless invited. They are calm and reserved, even during crisis — these are the kiddos who stay level-headed and resourceful when others’ emotions are running high. They can adapt to most situations with ease because their needs are easily determined. They hate being told what to do and don’t want to tell others what to do either. 

With a world full of questions, their goal in life is to figure things out as honestly and as accurately as possible. They tend to challenge the status quo, opinions, and/or beliefs in adults, no matter how important the person. They are quick to find inconsistencies in conversation and welcome criticism or disagreements, considering them constructive rather than personal. Motivated by reason and logic rather than feelings, they tend to remain objectively detached through any discussion. As a result, Owls can unknowingly offend others by their harsh criticism and can appear uncaring. It’s helpful for adults to understand that their critical analysis of the world is a means of understanding and improving things, and they’re not intentionally mean or harsh. Their brain is naturally analytical, logical, and objective. It can be challenging for others to understand the depth of all that is happening behind their calm exterior. However, when given the right environment, these kiddos while thrive. They desire nonconformity, ample quiet time, independence, and the freedom to tinker on whatever they’re contemplating. Their curiosity for how things work mixed with their critical analysis is a powerful combo that can solve many problems and make the world a better (and more functional) place.

INTROVERTED

FLEXIBLE

LOGICAL

These kiddos gain energy by being in their heads, with their own thoughts, ideas, dreams, and visions. They prefer quiet. They talk less and more slowly unless they are talking about their favorite subject, in which case they can appear to be more extroverted. 

These kiddos make decisions based on logic and facts and value accuracy. They can remain objectively detached from feelings and emotions to solve problems. They search for answers and explanations and have a sharp eye for inconsistencies and mistakes. They are more concerned with critically analyzing people and situations as a means of improving. 

Prefer spontaneity and a loosely held schedule because the unplanned and unexpected brings an abundance of joy and excitement. They enjoy having the ability to work, play, and have fun all at the same time. They are pressure-prompted and will get their best ideas at the last minute.

A LOOK Inside the OWL's Brain

INTROVERTED

FLEXIBLE

LOGICAL

It’s good to know what ingredients make up your kiddo’s personality; however, it’s also helpful to understand how this plays out at home. 

As Owls receive information into their brain, their focus is on analyzing the accuracy of data. Their brain creates working models of how data is understood to be true. These working models are naturally formed in the Owl’s brain as they observe and analyze the facts, data, and inconsistencies of life. As they grow older, more and more of these models are created, constructing a system for data to be tested, classified, and stored. This processing system is in-depth and complex and typically not evident to anyone else as it’s happening internally. Owls frequently get lost in their thoughts and are usually not aware of the intensity of their thinking. To understand this unique brain wiring, here’s an example. 

Think of the working models in their brain as a sort of complex internal Rubik’s Cube system. If you’ve ever tried solving a Rubik’s Cube, you know that one, it’s complicated, and two, there are many methods to solving it with varying levels of difficulty and algorithms. Some methods are straightforward while others require memorization of a specific algorithm. But once it’s solved, you understand it. 


Think of an Owl’s brain as a network of thousands of Rubik’s Cubes. As they receive new information, the data is classified and assigned to the correct Rubik’s Cube for how it can be most accurately understood. This Rubik’s Cube system becomes the testing ground for analyzing, categorizing, and storing information. For the sake of understanding, let’s keep it simple. Say a third-grade Owl has learned addition, subtraction, and multiplication, and their brain

Think of an Owl’s brain as a network of thousands of Rubik’s Cubes.

This Rubik’s Cube system becomes the testing ground for analyzing, categorizing, and storing information. For the sake of understanding, let’s keep it simple. Say a third-grade Owl has learned addition, subtraction, and multiplication, and their brain created a Rubik’s Cube for how to solve each problem. Now they’re ready to learn division, but division cannot be solved or categorized using the addition, subtraction, or multiplication Rubik’s Cube formulas their brain currently has. Now, the Owl is perplexed. This new information does not fit any current models, but they still believe it to be true. 

Effortlessly, the Owls brain does something remarkable. It starts to re-evaluate and re-organize the entire mental Rubik’s Cube System to understand how, why, and where this new information fits into the system. They do this by asking themselves questions: What is the evidence that this is true? What problems like this have I solved before? Once they understand, their brain creates a new Rubik’s Cube specifically for storing data and referencing how to solve division problems in the future.  

This Rubik’s Cube System becomes the working model in which they test accuracy and solve complex problems. The older they get, the more sophisticated and extensive this system becomes because their brains are hard-wired to figure things out on a deeper level. Because of this, they appreciate precise language and will not hesitate to correct others if words or terminology is misused. 


With such an impressive, complex brain, Owls are the kiddos who invent new gadgets or understand perplexing theories and concepts and then go out and apply their knowledge to solve problems in the real world.

Unlike other birds, Owls have special feathers that allow them to fly without making any noise. 

It’s a myth that owls can rotate their heads 360 degrees. These birds can actually turn their necks 135 degrees in either direction, which gives them 270 degrees of total movement. They see everything! 

The eyes of an owl are not actual “eyeballs.” Their tube-shaped eyes are entirely immobile, providing binocular vision which fully focuses on their prey and understands depth perception.
