Recognizing Turkeys

In Sandra Boynton's classic book, The Compleat Turkey, she gives five rules that you are dealing with a turkey:

Rule Number One:
A turkey spends a great deal of time improving others.
Rule Number Two:
A turkey takes its work very seriously.
Rule Number Three:
A turkey considers itself exempt from any rules.
Rule Number Four:
A turkey's beliefs are determined not by principles but by situation.
Rule Number Five:
A turkey never gives up.
 Of course, this is Boynton and so you simply have to look at the illustrations which I will not reproduce.
