It's that time again - when the Chinese New Year looms near and you start wondering yet again, what your supposed Zodiac says about you.
Apparently this year, you've found that you not only have a year zodiac but also a monthly and hourly zodiac (known as inner animal and secret animal).
Let's take a look at what your birth year, month (day) and hour are supposed to tell about you.
How others perceive you: rooster
Acute, neat, meticulous, organized, self-assured, decisive, conservative, critical, perfectionist, alert, zealous, practical, scientific, responsible. Can be over zealous and critical, puritanical, egotistical, abrasive, proud, opinionated, given to empty bravado.
Your inner animal - uhh...what you are actually like inside? : monkey
Inventor, motivator, improviser, quick-witted, inquisitive, flexible, innovative, problem solver, self-assured, sociable, artistic, polite, dignified, competitive, objective, factual, intellectual. Can be egotistical, vain, arrogant, selfish, reckless, snobbish, deceptive, manipulative, cunning, jealous, suspicious.
Your secret animal - no idea what this is...perhaps your subconscious? : rat.
Forthright, tenacious, intense, meticulous, charismatic, sensitive, intellectual, industrious, charming, eloquent, sociable, artistic, and shrewd. Can be manipulative, vindictive, self-destructive, envious, mendacious, venal, obstinate, critical, over-ambitious, ruthless, intolerant, and scheming.
So, if we examine what is similar about all of these...nothing.
But if we examine those words that show up in at least two of the animals, then you are:
Meticulous, Self-assured, Sociable, Artistic, Intellectual.
But also Egotistical, Deceptive, Manipulative and Critical.
Ouch. What a list.
It must be hard to live with such a person like that. :)
