We're all familiar with the term 'Ego'. Some of us think of this word in a negative way, thinking of selfish people or people who have huge, inflated egos. Some of us may think of ego as a good thing, that part of us that makes us proud of who we are, fierce in defending ourselves, and strong in the face of enmity. Ego might well be different things to different people. So how powerful is YOUR ego, and what kind is it? Answer these questions to find out.

You Have the Ego of a Duck
It seems like your ego isn't very strong, and in fact may be a bit on the lower end. On the one hand, this may mean you have high self control. On the other hand, you may be judging yourself because you think society thinks of you in a certain way. Either way, you don't have to put your head underwater, preen your feathers a bit and let people compliment you. We're sure you won't overdo it, that's not in your nature.
You Have the Ego of a Cat
You keep your ego at a reasonable level. Not unlike a cat cleaning itself, you won't let what others want from you in the moment interfere with your inner focus. Sometimes you let your ego get the better of you, but that's usually only among close friends and family, and you trust them to accept that. You show empathy to others, and that makes you a better person to be around.
You Have the Ego of a Peacock
Your ego is large and in charge, and you have no qualms about showing the world what you are worth. It's hard for you to hide the good things about you. Remember, there is always someone better, stronger or smarter, so modesty is a great trait to have as well. Be aware of how people around you respond to this kind of pride. Don't be ashamed of your accomplishments, you deserve to be complimented for them. At the same time, don't lord it over those who are not as fortunate.
