11% of kiddos are parrots

You know those kiddos who talk your ear off and challenge everything you say?! Well, here they are. Welcome to the gregarious, talkative, and creative world of the Parrot! 

They are extroverts who love to talk and question everything - including rules. They need to understand the reasons behind rules in order to comply. They love variety, change, and welcome new experiences without reservation. More so than any other kiddo, Parrots tend to have a good balance of socialization and independence to pursue their creative projects. As curious skeptics, Parrots can spend hours by themselves exploring, playing, and figuring things out, yet they are always ready for a party. They are outgoing and confident in who they are, willing to take risks and regularly seeks new challenges. Parrots are happiest while participating in new activities with other people or talking. They enjoy an intelligent conversation for a chance to gain various perspectives.

Parrot kiddos are truly curious. They want the freedom and flexibility to explore their creative ideas and to use their high energy to bring ideas to life. Parrots are highly investigative and enthusiastic about whatever creative projects they’re pursuing. They tend to have an “I-can-do-anything-I-set-my-mind-to” attitude, which allows them to tackle challenges that other kiddos tend to be afraid of. Due to their persuasive personality and willingness to challenge, they tend to be leaders amongst their friends. They’d much rather be outside exploring nature or playing sports than sitting in a classroom. They find it challenging to sit still because of their high energy and their need for change and real-life experiences. These kiddos must have space for exploration, observation, and opportunities to talk through everything. 

They prefer their world to be ever-changing, flexible, and fun. Parrots welcome change because their focus is on possibilities. They ask themselves questions like, what new things could I learn from this? As thrill-seekers, they need to experience risks and make mistakes in order to learn what other possibilities come forth. Their brain is like a playground of ideas that sees potential everywhere and leads them to endless possibilities and adventures. They need adults who know how to channel their high energy without squashing their creative ideas. Parrots curiosity and creativity, mixed with their confidence, make a powerful combo that can significantly make the world a better (and more vibrant!) place.

These kiddos gain energy by engaging with outside stimuli: people, activities, conversation, etc. They prefer to go and do and need to talk out loud to process their thoughts. You can expect extraverted kiddos to enjoy playing and interacting with friends rather than being alone. 

Parrots naturally focus on the bigger picture rather than the details. They come up with new ideas for doing things and think about future implications for current decisions. They are more interested in thinking about future possibilities than actualities. They are curious observers who can sense inconsistencies; they will notice clues like tone of voice, a momentary pause, or body language that is inconsistent with words. Because of this, they tend to be able to predict what will happen before it happens. 

They 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 PARROT's Brain

EXTROVERTED

BIG PICTURE

FLEXIBLE

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 Parrots receive information into their brain, they maintain a state of curiosity towards life, and they focus on brainstorming possibilities. They have an abundance of ideas and get inspired when they can talk about their ideas. They are not interested in what’s been done before; they want to invent new and exciting ways of doing things. They are natural entrepreneurial-minded and start by seeing, experiencing, and deciphering what’s around them. With this data, they mash-up concepts they’ve learned and create something unusual and compelling. This is why Parrots need to engage in a variety of experiences. Allow them to try all the sports and activities they’re interested in. 

This kiddo’s superpower is generating ideas; however, ideas don’t just appear in their brain fully formed. To understand this unique brain wiring, think of a Parrot’s brain as a popcorn machine. There are thousands of raw kernels, and with the right environment, ideas start to pop up rapidly. As these kiddos are given opportunities to explore, try new things, take risks, face challenges, and find patterns in life, the raw kernels start to pop into bigger ideas. All the experiences, activities, ideas, and projects they engage in as children develop their ability to lead others and act as a catalyst for change as adults. 

With so many ideas being tossed around, it can be difficult for a Parrot to focus and settle on just one. It is unlikely that they’ll follow through on every idea they think of. They are easily distracted and tend to jump from one project to the next, oftentimes without completing it. This can make them seem indecisive when, in reality, they are doing what their brain does best: enthusiastically following the many ideas their mind is creating.

They’ll continue to ask questions until they fully understand it, all resources are exhausted, or something else distracts their attention. There needs not to be an order or system to pursue their ideas — it’s completely satisfying and thrilling to follow their impulses as they come.

Because of their high energy, it may feel like Parrots don’t have an off switch. They talk a lot and tend to interrupt. They tend to grab things they’re curious about or take physical risks without thinking about the implications. Parrots will benefit significantly with patient adults who will teach them self-control without squashing their curiosity and love for life. One parenting strategy that tends to be effective is the book Choice Theory by Dr. Glasser. Implementing this strategy will teach them how to take responsibility for their life and, at the same time, lessen how far they push the limits. Choice theory will help empower and build a positive relationship with your Parrot rather than control them. They learn through exploration and discovery, and they do not want to be controlled. These kiddos thrive with patient adults who will talk through everything and recognize when their curious appetite needs satisfying while keeping them safe.
