    Chinese Zodiac

    Ok... so I'm always fascinated to see how the different personality determiners all intertwine with each other. My Chinese Zodiac, Rat (Wood), fits me spectacularly well... I've listed the 12 animals with corresponding years and a link to a description. Check it out and post your comments... your MBTI type and Enneagram type are also welcome!

    Ox
    Tiger
    Rat
    Rabbit
    Dragon
    Snake
    Horse
    Ram
    Monkey
    Rooster
    Dog
    Pig

    The specific dates vary, and you also have to take into account that the Chinese New Year is in February, so to find out your animal, use this table: Chinese astrology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Thanks for sharing!


    Personally, I am an ENTP, 7w6, Wood Rat (Feb 5, 1924 to Jan 23, 1925 | Feb 2, 1984 to Feb 19, 1985):

    Rat people are so charming and attractive they are always surrounded by friends and admirers. They can also be lone tumbleweeds, seldom making lasting friendships. Known as Perfectionists, they never want to lose face. It takes an understanding friend to get them to "put on the dancing plumes." Rat people have vivid imagination and are known for creating extraordinarily magic moments in time. Not surprisingly, the sensitive Rats have the gift of insight and clairvoyance, so you better watch out what you think around them! Rats enjoy being leaders and pacesetters and usually enjoy extraordinary success in life.

    Wood rats don't care about firecrackers and whiz-bam-boom special effects. Still waters run very deep! Somewhat introverted and shy in social gatherings, Wood Rats nevertheless make a big impact when it comes to career, finance, and entrepreneurial projects. A big ego keeps this one focused on the big picture, talking only when necessary to make the next move. The enterprising Wood Rat knows and lives the rules in human dynamics: compromise, flexibility, "playing it by ear," the Golden Rule, and generosity. In the Love Boat, don't expect the Wood Rat to whisper a lot of sweet nothings; again, still waters run deep. They don't need words, they ACT their love, showering affection, kindness, and respect on their loved ones, who love them in return.
    Yeah... I think this might be the reason why I don't seem like the stereotypical ENTP.

    I'm a Dragon of the Fire element.

    I still have doubts about my MBTI and Enneagram but Fire Dragon fits me very well, aside from being introverted. I think this might be because fire is very "yang" but I also have a lot of "yin".

    FIRE DRAGON - 1916, 1976, 2036

    The most righteous, outgoing and competitive of all Dragons, the Fire Dragon will expect a lot from everyone. But while he may be demanding and aggressive, he is also blessed with enormous energy and has a lot to offer in return. The trouble is that he may go around with an air of superiority plus authority and make people fear or shy away from him. His leadership qualities are often marred by his desire to be treated like the Messiah. Fire matched with his forceful lunar sign will give him overzealous and dictatorial inclinations. He pushes too hard even where there is little resistance.

    In reality, he is an open and humane person given to impartiality and uncovering the truth at all costs. His criticisms are objective and he has the power to arouse the masses with his vibrant personality. A natural empire builder, he will look toward the supreme order of things, with himself at the helm, of course.

    Because the Fire Dragon is often enveloped by insatiable personal ambition, he is short-tempered, inconsiderate and unable to put up with anything less than perfection. He also overgeneralizes or jumps to conclusions, frequently lumping people into categories without allowing for or even perceiving their individual differences.}

    Nonetheless, here is a performer of the highest degree who could easily be a source of inspiration to his fellowman and a personality who will catch the public eye - when he learns to master his negative traits and communicate more humbly with others.

    The Tiger is associated with the spring and the Chinese element of wood. Their direction is the east, their best color is green, and the planet that rules them is Jupiter. Their guardian animal is the azure dragon. Tigers are generally healthy, but they are prone to problems with their liver and gall bladder. Tigers are members of the third trine, along with the horse and dog.

    Tigers are strong people. They are deep thinkers who are very sensitive and have great sympathy for others. They are very brave and powerful. Tigers are gifted speakers and often turn their strengths to helping a worthy cause. Tigers are productive, enthusiastic, honorable, and very dynamic. They are magnets for people and fight to the end for what they believe in. They thrive on personal contact and long for their ideal soul mate. Relationships are of the utmost importance to the Tiger and they will do their very best to make sure any romantic partner is extremely happy. Passionate and affectionate, the people that a Tiger loves are guaranteed a sincere and stimulating relationship.

    Tigers are very stubborn and they do not like authority, especially if it is coming from someone older. They do not even like to be given advice and will only listen if it is coming from a person they love and trust. They be very rebellious, rash, and often make poor judgments. Tigers can be moody, prone to outbursts, and have terrible tempers they have to learn to control. Though very loyal, a Tiger is a dangerous thing if he finds he has been betrayed. Tigers are prone to being anxious and need someone who can calm them without provoking their temper. They can be restless, always looking for a new cause to poor their energy into, and sometimes are very impatient.



    deep thinkers, gifted speakers, does not like to be betrayed, yes; everything else no

    Yang Wood Dog here..

    Chinese Zodiac Dog
    The second last sign in the circle of the Chinese zodiac is that of the Dog.

    Its important to a Dog that everyone around them is happy, and they will do their best to ensure it. While this can be a great trait in a friend, it can also lead to some very nosy behavior as they strive to get to the root of your every problem. Dogs are also known for their unsolicited advice. They are sensitive and take any insults to their friends as a personal offense.

    A Dog's home is his castle, and you'll always find it neat, organized and very clean. They favor inexpensive furnishings, but then again they're not really spendthrifts in any area. Dog's are more likely to save their money away.

    They are determined and somewhat stubborn people. Once they start on something, they will make sure to complete it before moving on to something else. Sometimes this tendency to be single-minded can make a Dog lose sight of the bigger picture.

    Careers in law enforcement, politics, law, acting or teaching are all very well suited for anyone born in the year of the Dog. A Dog can always be relied on, and will put in extra effort no matter what the task.

    Friendly and loyal Dogs can get along with just about anyone, though will find that relationships work out better with Horses or Tigers. There will likely be conflicts between a Dog and either Dragons or Roosters.

    So it's looking like hit or miss – no rhyme to the reason. Interesting. For those of you who it doesn't fit very well, how close is your birthday to February? Perhaps you are close to the cusp and maybe either the animal directly before, or after, your animal fits you better?

    Metal Horse.

    Chinese Zodiac Horse As we enter the second half of the 12-year cycle, the Horse takes the 7th position.

    A Horse is a very social animal, and can hold their own in any conversation. They prefer to be the ones doing all the talking, so will use jokes and humor to keep the attention squarely on them.

    Horses don't mean to be gossipy, but will have a hard time keeping any secrets as they love to talk and share what they know. Feel free to go to a Horse for honest advice, just take care with what you tell them.

    The laid-back demeanor of a Horse can often hide the fact that they are extremely intelligent, and will catch on to just about anything with no effort at all. Because they master nearly everything with ease, a Horse will get very frustrated with obstacles or unexpected challenges.

    A Horse will always be impulsive, and very quick to try something new, usually without thinking.

    Gregarious Horses are drawn to jobs that let them socialize, like instructors, publicists, sales reps or bartenders. They will always put their full energy into their jobs, which can sometimes lead them to over-work themselves.

    You'd think the friendly Horse would be compatible with anyone, but they should not be paired with Rats or Monkey. The best relationships are with Dogs or Tigers. A Horse will throw themselves into any relationship, which may or may not difficult for their partner to handle.

    I usually think this with the western sign, Gemini.

    Yeah, it also depends on your elemental alignments and yin vs. yang (supposedly)

    Like for me, having yin diminishes more of the yang tendencies that some fire dragons are supposed to posess (like aggression and narcissism)

    Yin, Snake with Earth as my element

    MBTI - ISTJ

    Snakes are people who are very deep. They think deeply and they feel deeply. These people have a great amount of wisdom though they may not always share it. They can have a lot of compassion for other people and are intense and passionate about everything in their life. Snakes are prone to physical beauty, and sometimes they run into trouble from that but if they are careful about whom they let in, then they can find the lover they are yearning for. They can be very graceful and elegant, are cautious and responsible, and always have a strong sense of purpose. The Snake is a very creative person who is strong, ambitious, and sensual.

    Snakes have their bad sides, but as long as this is understood and controlled, they will do well in life. Snakes can be very vain and selfish, lack trust in others, and sometimes seem very cold. They can be jealous lovers who are sometimes suffocating and overly possessive. They can be hedonistic loners who don’t trust anyone else’s judgment but their own. They are prone to doubting themselves. Snakes sometimes have a tendency to try to control the people around them and can be manipulative. This can often get them in trouble, but if they reign in their controlling tendencies and learn to trust in other people, they can find great fulfillment in their relationships. Snakes are often prone to bursts of temper, another thing they must learn to control.

    I don't know much about Chinese astrology, apparently I'm a rooster and...'yin water'
    I looked it up, though, and yin and water seem to negate some rooster traits


    Roosters are always honest, and don’t always know when to temper their honesty with a little tact. They can be blunt, to say the least. A Rooster would expect the same from others and can be quite put off if they find someone hasn't told the complete truth about something.
    I do generally value honesty, but I lie to some people and do use tact. However, I like for people to tell me the truth and I don't react nicely when I find I've been lied to. And it doesn't really matter what the truth is, I just appreciate it.

    They are very social. A Rooster loves to talk, and their favorite subject is themselves. They can be very entertaining in social settings as long as the conversation doesn't continue to linger on them for very long. Roosters can brag like no other.
    I don't brag much and I don't particularly enjoy talking, but I've noticed I can be very self-absorbed.

    Like their namesake, people under this sign like to preen and look their best at all times. Not only do Roosters keep themselves looking fine, their homes will also be neat, tidy and decorated in style.
    I'm not gonna spend so much time making myself or my environment look absolutely spectacular.

    Independent and determined, a Rooster is full of confidence and will be hard-working no matter what the task is. Advice can be welcome, but will seldom be attended to. Their confidence makes it hard to believe someone else may know better than they do.
    Independent, yes. Determined...well, I'm very stubborn when I figure out what I want. I'm not much of a hard-worker, though. I'm usually skeptical of advice given to me.



    A Rooster will excel at jobs requiring that extra edge of personal charisma. Salespeople, public relations experts or teachers offer the right environment for a Rooster.
    I don't consider myself to be charismatic or to be that great with people.

    Those with delicate personalities may not be able to take the non-nonsense approach of a Rooster. Oxen or Snakes can usually deal with a Rooster, whereas Rams or Rabbits will not be too happy.
    I don't really think I'm a harsh person.
