Wombats in the wild can be wonderfully predictable little creatures, always returning to the same burrow, using familiar paths to navigate their way around. Children of this type also enjoy having the same sort of stability and adjust well to routines. With a strong desire to be a part of a club, group or team, and to contribute in a useful way, you are someone who tends to thrive on approval and generally respond well to the ‘responsible’ approach that is encouraged in Schools.
While you enjoy awards such as gold stars or ticks, ribbons and badges, you also seem to react positively to criticism or scolding, at times trying even harder in an effort to either please or outdo those around you. You particularly enjoy the teacher taking the lead role in the classroom, especially if they are very knowledgeable about a subject, and expect them to be very clear about letting you know what is happening next, and what expected of you.
While Wombats are very good at following clear instructions, they are not always appreciated by the people around them who see them as inflexible and unwilling to change even when change is what is required. This is not necessarily so, and once people, including you, start to understand personality differences and what makes the Wombat so special, you will begin to understand that you were born to organise and keep people on task, and bring a planned approach to work and school.
