For A Answers:
Your bird fits the "Extrovert Bird" profile. An extrovert bird is energized by being around others, be it people or its feathered flock mates. Extrovert birds can become bored without their people or other birds around. Given the opportunity, an extrovert bird will lift its foot to be picked up (even with people it doesn’t know) rather than sit perched in its cage or on its playgym. Extrovert birds generally enjoy social situations and don’t like to be left out since they like being where the action is.
Extrovert birds often prefer more frequent interaction, while introvert birds tend to prefer more one-on-one interaction with their favored people. Extrovert birds fit the standard Myers-Briggs personality test’s definition of “extraversion,” that is, a tendency to act, then reflect, then act further. (Example: Your Amazon parrot rushes over to steal your pen the moment you leave it on the table, holds it in its foot as if to behold its shiny loot it and then proceeds to dismantle it.)
Introverts, on the other hand, tend to reflect, then act, then reflect. (Example: Your African grey parrot carefully watches you write with the pen, then casually strolls over to retrieve it when you put it down, waves it in its foot and then waits for your reaction.)
Extrovert birds might need a fairly consistent schedule, such as 30 minutes of playtime and interaction with you in the morning and an additional one hour in the afternoon, so that they can relax and keep themselves happily entertained in the interim … knowing that social hour is just around the corner.
