The Monkey's Personality:Sharp, Smart...

People born in a year of the Monkey have magnetic personalities and are witty and intelligent. Personality traits like mischievousness, curiosity, and cleverness, make them very naughty. Monkeys are masters of practical jokes, because they like playing most of the time. Though they don't have bad intentions, their pranks sometimes hurt the feelings of others.

Monkeys are fast learners and crafty opportunists. They have many interests and need partners who are capable of stimulating them. While some like the eccentric nature of Monkeys, others don't trust their sly, restless, and inquisitive nature. Although they are clever and creative, Monkeys can't always exhibit their talents properly. They like to accept challenges and prefer urban life to rural.

Good Health for Monkeys

With the legacy of bad luck from the previous year, Monkeys may not get completely free from bad luck until the autumn. With pressure from hard-work, you may quarrel frequently with family members. Thus you may begin to think 2017 is an unlucky year. Just doing your own thing, however, will have a bad effect on your career, your friendships, and your family. When arguments happen, view the problems from the perspective of others.

To relieve pressure when you are upset, do some exercise, such as going for a walk with family or friends. And pay attention to your diet by eating more fruit and vegetables.

How to Build Relationships with Monkeys

Monkeys are not very quick to settle down into relationships, as they tend to be promiscuous and easily bored. Once Monkeys find the perfect partner, however, they commit to him/her in every possible way. Since Monkeys are sociable and love to talk, it's easy to relate to them.
