Personality Traits and Characteristics Rooster

In Chinese Astrology, the Rooster is known for its characteristics of eccentricism and being a perfectionist. Roosters are mostly what you see is what you get since they do not have deep layers to them. However, they do have a good sense of intuition and can tell if someone is lying to them. People born under the Chinese horoscope sign of the Rooster also are very proud people and they usually have a lot to be proud of! Roosters are usually very ambitious and will continue with their projects until they succeed. They also like having all of the attention to themselves. If someone draws attention away from the Rooster, woe be to them! Roosters are egotistical, and need to be aware of how others perceive them, even if they usually do not care on how they are perceived.

Good career choices for the Rooster include: financial advisor, stockbroker, insurance agent, and military operations. They are very good at handling money and usually do not have to worry about financial troubles. Roosters, however, do not like taking risks, either career-wise or financially. Stability and pragmaticism is therefore extremely important to them, and they are most likely to base a carrier choice on this rather than something they would perceive as being "fun." Roosters do need to watch what they say on the professional front, since they do have a tendency to be extremely blunt, and this may not look good for either the Rooster or for the company they represent.

Roosters are highly extroverted. They will have plenty of acquaintances. However, they do have a strong tendency to be highly conservative and narrow-minded. If there is one thing that the Rooster is known for, it is for its perfectionism. They maintain high standards for themselves both personally and professionally, and expect others to have high standards as well. These characteristics of the Rooster's personality may get a bit out of hand when they deal with other people, since the Rooster becomes frustrated when it sees the disorganized way that others live. The Rooster cannot and will not tolerate messiness, whether in the household or in the checkbook. If the Rooster is not careful, it can find itself subject to a number of emotional stability issues. Common issues that a Rooster might face include Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Narcissism.

Compatible signs for the Rooster are the Dragon, the Ox, the Tiger, the Pig, and the Snake. Incompatible signs for the Rooster include the Rabbit and the Rat. With love and sex concerned, the Rooster needs to remember to be gentle in relationship as it does have a tendency to point out the faults it finds in its significant other. However, they do not like playing mental games with their significant other and will expect the same in the relationship. Parents who do have Rooster children will be pleased with their ambition and neatness, however, the Rooster child may need to have what they say watched since they do have the tendency to say things without thinking them through first.
