Genera and species: Euarctos Americanus
Collective Term: A maul of bears

Description: Conflicting forces shape the bear's nature. Since it is a classic omnivore, this burly beast exhibits two distinct sides to its personality. The carnivorous component makes the bear gruff and powerful, while its herbivorous side reveals a sensitive and intelligent individual.

With their gruff outgoing personalities, their burly physiques and strong characters make bears easy to identify. Their natural confidence and swaggering gaits puts others on notice that a bear is present. They require a great deal of personal space and when they enter a room, the tension level rises. As youngsters, bears excel in sports, although their propensity for laziness relegates it to being an observer and fan in later life. Familiar with the seduction of the couch, their ability to sleep soundly is legendary throughout the animal world.

Although it is aware and intelligent, the bear mostly succeeds from the sheer force of its personality. Rarely challenged to reach its full intellectual potential, it dominates conversations with its intense single-mindedness. However, it is unwilling to argue from a position that it doesn't truly believe in, which makes it a lousy lawyer.

Bearsroutinely enjoy success in all aspects of their industrious lives and their large and capable frames elicit respect and admiration in the workplace. Their natural leadership talents make them suitable for jobs in management, academia and personnel training. General Norman Schwarzkopf is the quintessential bear personality, typifying this breed's no-nonsense head-on approach to life.

Two elements define the bear's style of debate. Never avoid an argument and never back down. Bears will batter their opponents into submission just for the endorphin rush -- for there's nothing a bear enjoys more than pitting every drop of its intellectual juices against the mind of a worthy opponent.

These large carnivores are not the most reciprocating of lovers and their mating habits can be described as intense, speedy and sweaty -- never as romantic or extravagant. But still, they're always willing to get the fur flying, and their mates secretly appreciate the passion and ferocity of their sexual interest.
