Personality Traits and Characteristics Tiger

Tigers in Chinese Astrology are known for being very loyal to the ones that they love and being very passionate for the causes they care about to the point that they will bare their teeth. They are also known for their sensitive and caring personality. However, when things get tough, Tigers tend to be rash and rush into problems without thinking things through. Tiger signs also are fiercely independent, and do not want or accept help when the going gets tough.

The fierce, independent, and strong personality makes leadership positions naturally fall into the Tiger's lap. However, due to their rash and swift decision making, Tigers need to consider the gravity of the decisions that the make and the consequences of them. This is very important when other people are under the leadership of the Tiger and could be very heavily affected by the outcomes of the decisions made by the Tiger. Due to the fact that when they want to get something done, they want to do it immediately, it's in their nature to operate solo on projects. As a leader, however, Tiger people have the qualities of being tolerant and fighting for humanitarian causes. A Chinese Tiger, however, becomes extremely stressed easily, and does need love, attention, and support during these phases. At their very worst, Tigers may be susceptible to Histrionic Personality Disorder and Paranoid Personality Disorder.

Any career path would benefit from the Tiger's fierceness and independence, and the best paths to channel this would be drivers, teachers, explorers, and politicians. However, they need to watch their fierce nature, since this can come into conflict with figures of authority, whether it be educator or a supervisor. Tigers also make excellent parents since they lead by example, and they usually set a good example for their children to follow. Those with children may need to watch their Tigers when they become teenagers, since the independent streak may manifest as rebellion.

With love and sex related issues, the Tiger is in search of true love. Their restless nature should keep things interesting, as well. For a compatible match, the Tiger should look for the Dog and the Horse as a partner. The Tiger should avoid potential partners with the Monkey. Although the Tiger likes to be secretive about matters, they need to communicate with their partner from time to time in order to prevent any suspicions from arising. The Tiger also tends to rush into one relationship after the other, without really ever taking time to themselves. However, when they find that special someone, they are fiercely loyal to that person, and in turn, expect nothing but complete loyalty back. If you flirt with the partner of a Tiger, you can expect the Tiger to start displaying territorial behavior as well, since their partner is theirs, and no one else. Tigers do not share at all. However independent they might be, when injured, they do need love, care, and sympathy during their time of need. Parents of children born as Tigers can expect independent behavior at a young age since nothing brings more pleasure to a Tiger child than learning to do tasks for themselves, and receiving heaps of praise.
