The Monkey Personality

People born in the year of the monkey can cope with almost any intricacy with a sober mind. Ambitious and knowledgeable as they are, they can achieve great success in whatever career they decide to embrace.

They like to appreciate and show their wit and bravery. They take it for granted that other people are nothing in comparison with them, and they never conceal their happiness and pride. But sometimes their cleverness may overreach itself. When they are playing petty tricks to get something profitable with the least effort and money, or putting forward some shrewd proposals, people may become suspicious of their motives and moral qualities.

Though fun-lovers, they never waste time in doing something to no avail. They're good at using well-chosen fictions when chatting with different people on different occasions, and taking advantage of other people's weaknesses to control them. As they are perfectionists, it's difficult for their inferiors to please them or take money out of their pockets, unless they have done something perfectly.

Most of the people born in the year of the monkey have the spirit of working in earnest, and they are good at managing financial affairs. If political or economic circles want to achieve certain aims, it is wise to recruit such people. But only when they're fully on your side, can they be ideal cooperators.

They are full of humor and resources, which makes it easy for them to get what they want. But few people dare to believe in and make friends with them because they're generally complicated and mutable and seldom care if they have violated the interests of other people.

To do them justice, they are somewhat indispensable in the real life. Their talent-for managing money matters is the admiration of the people born in the year of the mouse, and their wisdom may inspire and enlighten "dragons." Besides, people born in the rabbit, sheep, dog and ox have much respect for their versatility, and the "pigs" and "rooster" like to have them as cooperators.
