I am a bat! (I loooooooooove bats)
Collective Term: A cauldron of bats
Being an airborne personality, the bat tends to be vulnerable in the company of ground animals. However, it is not a true bird and hasn’t mastered the art of smooth controlled flight, so it often appears clumsy in social situations. Hence the term acting batty. As compensation for its awkwardness, it seems to have a built-in radar that allows it to read the intentions and motivations of others.
Identifying bat personalities is not difficult. Being nocturnal, they come alive at night and prefer dark nondescript clothing. Underground clubs and dimly lit bars are their favorite haunts and they never have tans. They are intelligent, spiritual, active individuals and use their full range of senses (other than their poor eyesight) to carefully evaluate all situations.
Bats have a habit of flitting in and out of social situations. Swooping down to interact with others, they’ll quickly fly off to resume their bat lives. Tending to be unassertive and aloof, they take flight at the first hint of a confrontation and seek comfort in their personal spaces that are decorated in unusual but comfortable ways. The bat’s sixth sense gives it a number of advantages in its work, and its insightful nature enables it to understand others better than it understand itself.
In the romance department, bats are enamoured with the idea of love more than they are with its colder realities. Decidedly untraditional, they are prone to flights of extraordinary fantasy. And it’s not the traditional Ken and Barbie type of romance that tickles its fancy either. It’s the Bram Stoker kind: dark, moody and gothic.
Bat personalities do have an enormous sense of loyalty and if you ever do a favor for a bat, it will never relax until it has paid you back. This powerful sense of quid pro quo is one of the defining characteristics of the bat personality and you should consider yourself lucky if in a bat’s good graces. Bats have no strong yearning for parenthood since the kind of ego gratification that comes with having one’s own children doesn’t appeal to its karmic temperament.
They are quite happy to satisfy their maternal or paternal instincts by adopting or merely babysitting. If they do have children, they prove to be perfunctory parents: methodical and somewhat unimaginative. Still, they place great emphasis on ethics and morality and insist that their children be indoctrinated in the values of good citizenship.
