While you're here, would you like to know your Chinese zodiac animal?

     
 
{{answer_29628475}}, your Chinese zodiac animal is the Rat!

Rats are a mixed bag, full of contradictions: quick witted, charming yet aggressive, talkative, honest—yet narrow-minded—and frivolous with money. You’re not romantic, yet you’re loving and sensuous.

 
{{answer_29628475}}, your Chinese zodiac animal is the Ox!

Ox people are hard workers. You’re intelligent, hold family dear, full of self- confidence and hold yourself to high standards. You tend to see things in black and white, and while you come across serene, people should watch out when you get angry.

 
{{answer_29628475}}, your Chinese zodiac animal is the Tiger!

You’re daring, a born leader, noble and brave—and always unpredictable. You’re confidence borders on arrogance. You love adventure and excitement. You’re shrouded in mystery, passionate and romantic.

 
{{answer_29628475}}, your Chinese zodiac animal is the Rabbit!

As a rabbit person, you have good taste and an artistic flair. Your sweet and sentimental nature makes you popular with others, and not surprisingly, you don’t like to argue. Your partner and friends are lucky, because you’re loyal.

 
{{answer_29628475}}, your Chinese zodiac animal is the Dragon!

You are a noble creature, a perfectionist, and naturally, you think yourself perfect. You’re inflexible, always believing yourself right. That’s okay, because you usually are. Your advice is wise and you’re admired wherever you go.

 
{{answer_29628475}}, your Chinese zodiac animal is the Snake!

You’re a philosopher. You have charm and manners, making you irresistible. You’re swift to make decisions and you’re prone to relying on instinct and sentiment rather than facts. You tend to exaggerate, even lie if you think you can get away with it.

 
{{answer_29628475}}, your Chinese zodiac animal is the Horse!

You have a rebellious streak. You’re restless, full of energy. You also have a dual nature. You can be arrogant, yet sweet-tempered and modest. You have the need to belong, yet you want to remain independent. You crave love, yet often feel cornered.

 
{{answer_29628475}}, your Chinese zodiac animal is the Goat!

Of all the Chinese zodiac animals, you are the most creative. You’re a dreamer, caring and romantic. You’re a bit insecure at times, even though your charm acts like a magnate. You’re overly concerned with your appearance, so lighten up. You look great.

 
{{answer_29628475}}, your Chinese zodiac animal is the Monkey!

Clever, energetic and optimistic by nature, the monkey is all about flexibility. The good side of the monkey: intelligence, confidence, charisma, creative and a born leader. The dark side: a big ego, snobbish and crafty.

 
{{answer_29628475}}, your Chinese zodiac animal is the Rooster!

No one can fool you and nothing gets past your notice. You’re not a game player, but forthright and straightforward. You like to have your ego stroked, and why not? You’re attractive and a bit flashy.

 
{{answer_29628475}}, your Chinese zodiac animal is the Dog!

Dog people make the best friends. They’re honest, generous and faithful, yet they don’t like to mix with others. Honour and tradition are important. They’re intelligent and fight injustice, yet they can be judgemental at times.

 
{{answer_29628475}}, your Chinese zodiac animal is the Pig!
