Surviving your SERENGETI,7 Skills to Master Business and Life-What animal am I?

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Select Realtors-Buy a home in Washington DC. Sell a home in Washington DC SP98364271

Just took the quiz for the Surviving your SERENGETI,7 Skills to Master Business and Life to determine what animal I am? Twenty one questions were asked. For some reason I am curious to find out how they came up with the questions to determine the animal that I am? By the way did you know that 21 questions was a hit song by the Rapper than Entrepreneur 50 Cent? And 21 Grams was a 2003 American drama film directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu and written by Guillermo Arriaga that started Sean Penn and Naomi Watts. Thought I share this with my dedicated three readers who read my blogs on a daily basis.

Anyway on a 1-10 scale,1-5 Strongly Disagree and 6-10 Strongly Agree.

Some of the questions were

  • Fear doesn't keep me from taking risk.
  • I always strive for accuracy.
  • I am a very good listener.
  • I am an "outside fo the box"thinker.

Can't give you all the questions. Besides I want you to go and take the quiz too-LOL. Anyway after the answering the 21 Questions I discovered that I am The Graceful Giraffe. Lion has always been the animal that I know I am. Besides my last name is Folayan. Pronounced Fo Lion. (Something new you learned about me today). Even though I spent like seven years in West Africa (Nigeria),I never saw a Lion nor Giraffe. But Mosquitos loved collecting free blood from me. Anyway as I was reading what it is "The Graceful Giraffe,I discovered that I am a Girafee. This is what some of the stuff mentioned about yours truly-The Graceful Giraffe.

  • They seek to make others feel like they’re the most important person with whom they can spend time, and always put the needs of others first.
  • They live according to personal standards that are higher than any given code of conduct, and incorporate dignity, honor,and respect in extending grace to others—even when things have not gone their way.

Am I a Giraffe because I am 6ft tall? I seriously doubt it. Besides there are many people in the world way taller than me. But I am curious to do my research and learn more about the animal that I am-For some reason I feel like I should've said this another way. Anyway you all know what I am talking about. And I can't wait till March 1,2011 when Stefan Swanepoel book hit the stores.


I encourage you to read the first two chapters of SURVIVING YOUR SERENGITY, take the quiz to which animal you are, and participate in the challenge on Active Rain. 

The hard back book, Surviving Your Serengeti: 7 Skills to Master Business and Life is available for purchase already at Amazon for as low as $10.99 or $12.39 new and also if you like Kindle version of books, the Kindle version is available on Amazon's website for $9.99.  The book should be in book stores nationwide on March 1, 2011.

Lanre, I thought I'd be a wildebeest but am a crocodile! Congrats on being a giraffe even if you insist you are a lion but we probably share some of the same characteristics of all the 7 animals in the book. I look forward to reading the entire book as well!

Dear fellow Giraffe - You would be one of the "normal" height giraffee but I am a 6-ft personality in a 5-ft body. LOL.

I'm not sure if I'd like to be a Giraffe but these days, I kindly accept the personality that I am.

Lanre: Cheers on discovreing your hidden Serengeti animal. I'd prefer more choices myself and that doesn't sound like a lot of questions. Sure is catchy though. Peace,

Lanre--No wonder we get along so well.  We are both giraffes as several other AR members are.

The book arrived yesterday, but I have not opened it yet.  This evening.
