Not all Impersonal Imaginers are wise, but they have a high desire to be so—especially to gain book knowledge. They love, in particular, to sink their sharp claws into any abstract or conceptual form of knowledge. They not only ask whooo?, but Where? When? Why? and how much? They are very inquisitive, always gathering more knowledge. They can actually gain too much of it and lose all sense of pragmatism if they’re not careful.
The owl has been popular for thousands of years—probably due to its unusual, almost human appearance. With its large head and staring, deep-set eyes, feathered tufts protruding like ears, and a beak that resembles a nose, the owl seems to possess a unique and ominous aura, setting it apart from other birds. But not all owls look alike. Over one hundred different species of owls are found the world over, including 18 in North America. Their size varies greatly, with the largest having wingspans measuring over 5 feet in length compared to the smallest, which are tinier than a robin.
Similarly, the members of this Brain Type group come in the widest variety of personas, and we can’t emphasize this enough. Impersonal Imaginers often become actors, scientists, lawyers, politicians, doctors, college professors, computer whizzes, and so on, but you may also find them driving an 18-wheeler, a school bus, or a bulldozer. Regardless of profession, however, they are usually highly industrious and will do whatever it takes to get by. Most enjoy being entrepreneurs in some form. Like their owl counterparts, who can see things in the night like few other animals, Impersonal Imaginers often burn the midnight oil. Usually, they get their inspirations and revelations in the quiet hours, when daily distractions are gone.
Owls have amazing hunting accuracy, even in the dark. Their hearing is off the charts as they hone in on their prey. So too, Impersonal Imaginers strive for scientific accuracy in their academic or vocational pursuits. They prize strategizing—calculating how to hit their targets.
Finally, young owls anxiously anticipate leaving the nest. It seems as though they cannot wait to develop their wings and practice hunting. They usually escape the nest even before they can fly (unlike most other birds) as they attempt to “conquer the world” as soon as possible.
Young Impersonal Imaginers develop a passion for knowledge very early in life, as well. Typically very precocious as children, they are anxious to get out of the family “nest” and into the world where they can explore to their hearts’ (and minds’!) content. Once a person becomes familiar with the differences in these four Brain Type groups, it becomes rather easy to identify the Owl children, whose exceptionally inquisitive minds set them apart from other children.
