When animals pair up, certain patterns tend to emerge, based on each animal’s natural tendencies. For couples, a greater understanding of each other’s natural tendencies and communication styles is important, especially when it comes to dealing with deeply emotional subjects like money.

How Lions get on with other Lions

Lion-Lion relationships are the most dynamic of all the animal combinations – quite literally fireworks. Lions are such intense people, everything about their relationship is bold and combustible.

Lion & Lion relationships can be highly productive as both are task-oriented, highly motivated and find little need to get distracted with emotional baggage. Healthy Lion-Lion relationships also require mutual respect for each other’s point of view and a willingness to compromise.

As Lions enjoy leading and getting their own way, it is important to be mindful of being overly competitive with each other and being unwilling to compromise. Because Lions tend to be intense, critical and tactless, in Lion-Lion relationships, there can be too little warmth, positivity and intimacy. Because Lions are so outcome focused, they also mustn’t forget to enjoy the journey!

How To Better Communicate with a Lion

  • Everyone loves to be flattered! This is even more effective when you flatter Lions by acknowledging their particular needs. Lions need to be right, respected and to look good intellectually.

  • Style-wise, Lions like conversations to be productive so be brief, to the point and spell out the bottom line.

  • If you want your partner to make changes or do something different, since Lions think their way is always best, you have to demonstrate why your way is better.
