At a small social gathering recently, the hostess had prepared a few “games.” One of the “games” was something that I had never experienced before, but was certainly interesting. She displayed pictures of SEVEN different animals on the table. Each animal represented a particular response that a person might have when trying to deal with a difficult situation. Each person was asked to choose one of the animals and explain why they chose that particular animal. There were only 8 of us there and we could choose any animal, even if someone else had already chosen it. It was very interesting to see what each person chose and hear what each person had to say. Here are the animals and what they represented. Which one best describes how you would deal with a difficult situation? Tiger – attack first Turtle – Turn inward and remain silent Hummingbird – Fly away quickly Skunk – Fight dirty Rattlesnake – Attack if provoked Puppy – Whimper and cry Peacock - Make a big scene. Which one best describes YOU?
