General Characteristics of a Monkey
The mischievous Monkey is a delight to be around but be wary of that wiliness behind the friendly and cheerful façade. Reputed to be the wiliest creature of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac, the Monkey is the ultimate strategist and will plan his way to achieve whatever he wants.
The hyperactive Monkey is always on the move, always seeking the next thrill to be had and the next mountain to conquer. Multifaceted and versatile, witty and always entertaining, the Monkey is an attractive and sociable animal. The Monkey is a great friend to have and you will never have a dull moment. Make him use his nimble mind for good and the sky’s the limit for what the Monkey can do.
Monkeys can also be principled, although their principles may be slightly different from those generally accepted in society. Monkeys sometimes have a peculiar way of looking at life, which no one else shares, and Monkeys simply don’t understand why other people think they are being unreasonable. When this happens, the Monkey will often use their guile to bring people round to their way of thinking.
The Monkey is highly intelligent and knows it. His mental agility allows the Monkey to cruise through life and get away with success without much effort. The Monkey achieves easily so he is self-confident and loves to take on challenges.
On a superficial level, Monkeys are attractive, with fun, magnetic personalities and are usually popular. Extremely likeable, with a wicked sense of humour, Monkeys endear themselves to many people and find it easy to gain support for their causes.
Most Monkeys are versatile and adapt easily to changing environments, situations and people. Like chameleons, they feel as comfortable in a black-tie ball as at a casual barbeque on the beach.
