There is something that makes each one of us unique and the Chinese zodiac signs are good at revealing what makes us so. They tell us about our good and bad sides and also the parts that seem odd to others.
Some of the signs might be commonsensical and practical folk while others might be more prone to flights of fancy, but what sets you apart precisely is what defines you.
Here are some unique traits that define you:
They are one of the most resourceful and clever individuals with some unique cultural tastes. They might know the way to the most obscure bars in town or some indie music, most people would never have heard of. Their need to get to the deeper and darker side of society sets them apart. Since they are also leaders they will be able to influence others to try their esoteric choices.
They are hard-working, organized, and reliable people, who might seem stubborn from time to time. Despite being caring, others might be wary of them because of their habit of collecting odd knick-knacks. It could be as bad as hoarding, the inability to throw away anything whether or not they see it as meaningful. They have a hard time letting go of old things.
These people are brave and they like to show it. They are very aware of their charming personality as well. While they know how to get what they want exactly, it can come off as aggressive to some people and that is sometimes shocking to people. Tigers don't realize when they transform from fearless charmers to aggressive predators and should be more aware of that. They are overachievers, but they need to be careful not to hurt other people's feelings.
These are quick-thinking individuals, who are hard to pin down. They like having fun on their own, but also like staying close to the family. One of the qualities that sets them apart is their love for sex, which can be surprising for some partners. It is always great to make sure that the partner and you are on the same page about sexual preferences before engaging in anything intense or out of the ordinary.
These people seem like an enigma to those who can't handle a big personality. They are fierce, creative, and dramatic, which can ruffle some feathers at times. They might be too focused on themselves, so they need to learn to pay attention to others. They might be brave warriors commanding their team forward, but for someone not used to their personality, such behavior might seem tyrannical. So, the dragon must learn to balance drive with affection in their personal relationships.
They might seem intense at first glance but they might be rather detached. They don't like to involve themselves in petty matters and are generally wiser than most. They are also good at adapting to any situation, which might seem chameleon-like to others. If they are not careful, they might use their flexibility to manipulate others instead of persuading them. They might seem coercive to some people, even if they only intend to help.
These are adventurous people who want to roam the world untethered. They are sincere and caring but don't know how to be tied to one place or person for long. Their love for freedom takes them farther away from the people they are close to. They can be very unpredictable with their hot and cold behavior. They are charming and easy to become friends with but when they randomly push people away, they leave them confused.
These are smart, dependable and nurturing people. They take pride in their skills at taking care of people. They are also people who might be attracted to an eclectic lifestyle like New Age practices and sometimes go too far with it. They might be forcing people to be on board with their lifestyle by forcing them to adopt it too but that is not a good idea since they might anger more people than influence them.
They have an infinite source of energy inside them. They are constantly searching for something new that would interest them. They are always up for a good time but sometimes it becomes hard to figure out when they are being serious. Unless they are taught to have a strong moral code, their practical jokes can go too far at times. They need to be told when they are crossing other people's boundaries and making them feel uncomfortable.
These are articulate individuals who like to be appreciated by others for their cultured taste. They can be good representatives of organizations and are good at communication, which attracts people to them. However, it doesn't take too long for them to become arrogant. Their inflated ego might become a hindrance to their personal relationships at times, but it is not hard to keep it in check.
Those born in the year of the dog are likely to be loyal and caring like the creature that represents the year. They are great at following orders but might lack self-motivation. They are dependable in a crisis, but in daily life, they can be very complacent. They need to be motivated through external factors or by those who love and care for them. Their lack of initiative might offset their sweeter side at times.
They can be great humanitarians, but that doesn't mean they will do it humbly. They are very affectionate, innovative, and intelligent as well but sometimes they can struggle with personal boundaries. They like to help others but sometimes encroach other people's space without being given permission. They might be the kind of people who give unsolicited advice, though their intention is good. They need to learn to maintain a respectful distance.Disclaimer : This article is for your entertainment / infotainment purposes.
