Once you learn what kind of animal you are, you can more effectively approach a task. If you're a bird and want to dig, you use your beak and claws and realize that you would be very effective on an archaeological site but less effective if you wanted to dig a den. If you're a bear, you should know that heavy digging is your thing - so if you want to dig, digging large holes is what you do best. And if you're a rabbit, you should know that running fast is what you do well - but if you want to fly, best to get on an airplane. In other words, do what you can do well, and if you don't have an affinity to do what you need for a certain situation, seek someone who can collaborate with you.
