Personality Traits Associated With Your Zodiac Animal
Now that you know what you animal’s zodiac sign is, let’s look at the personality traits associated with that animal and see if any of them describe you.
Are you disciplined, a fact-checker, hardworking, industrious, a social butterfly, and a very good speaker? If so the rat’s personality definitely describes you.
Unfortunately, you have a tendency, based on your sign to be critical, selfish at times, dictatorial, hard-headed, and be willing to take on more tasks than you can handle.
Have you ever been told that you are very logical and methodical? What about dependable and hardworking? Do you have a very calm manner about you even when faced with challenges?
If so, these are all excellent traits processed by the ox. Unfortunately, at times though, you can be stubborn like and ox, and have a “one track mind.” Try to see things from all points of view in the future.
Are you a very colourful person and love to live life to its fullest? While trying to be the “King of the Jungle,” you are also very generous, sincere and giving. Just like a tiger though, at times you can be very agitated, jump to conclusions, and want things instantly, without much patience.
As a very small creature, you tend to be very quiet and soft-spoken. Rabbits, like to be at home and in their natural surroundings. There, they feel more confident and tend to tasks that make them happy such as grooming, cleaning, and spending time with family. Sometimes though, the rabbit can feel moody and lazy and give in to self-indulgences.
Does your personality sometimes seem a bit overpowering to others? If so, it is because you were born under the sign of the dragon. Dragons always make their points known in life to others, and are very passionate about issues they believe in. They are short and direct to the point which often times makes they seem uncaring, rude, demanding, and misunderstood.
Do you like to meditate or get lost in deep thoughts a lot? If so, your calm, wise-beyond-your-years manner can be attributed to the snake. While you are always thinking about life’s issues quietly, you can come off as a loner, introvert, scheming, and non-trusting of others individual.
Do you excel in sports or other competitions? Are other people drawn to your cheerful personality? If so, the horse is one of the most popular animals in the Chinese Zodiac. While great competitors, they can come off as showy, rude, easy to lose interest, and able to be steered or swayed easily.
While you always like to be around others for comfort and security, this is typical of a heard of sheep. Your mothering instincts like to come out as you are always willing to care for others and assist them with any needed tasks.
Because you are always understanding and peaceful, sometimes you can have a tendency to worry about other people’s problems which can leave you moody and non-focused for your day.
Are you always on the go because your day is always different and changing? Being born under the monkey sign means you have a tendency to be flexible, yet organized when it comes to solving problems.
Your intelligence needs to be stimulated, and while taking on problems helps, you also like to be social with others. At times though, you can be “out for number one,” and appear selfish to others.
Are you an early bird who always likes to get a head-start on your day? If so, the rooster in you is making an appearance as you live out your day in a responsible and reliable manner.
You like to be punctual and always strive for perfection in all that you do. Sometimes, this can alienate others as you can come off as having a large ego, and having an abrasive personality.
Are you honest, loyal, and have the ability to make and keep friends? Dogs are known as “man’s best friends” for a reason. You have the personality that everyone wants to be around and enjoy your presence for many years. Just like dogs though, at times you can be lazy, stubborn, and when threatened – tend to “bite” back.
Do you like the simple things in life? Do you work hard in life to enjoy the peacefulness and calmness that your home provides you? If so, the pig in you is coming out.
Pigs triumph though all challenges due to their resolute nature and are always dependable. Sometimes though, their hard-work can be over done and they can be materialistic and indulge themselves too much.
