The monkey is resourceful, charming, persuasive, amusing, sociable and cunning.
The always charming, super-energized monkey is the party animal of the Chinese zodiac. They have an insatiable appetite for fun and activity. Having a good time comes very easily for them in any crowd. They are optimistic, witty and blessed with a razor sharp mind.
While monkeys love to be the center of attention, they are good listeners as well. Their bottomless curiosity ensures they will be knowledgeable on a wide variety of topics. Their intelligence allows them to address complex tasks and situations with ease. Monkeys are show-offs who love nothing more than to bedazzle those around them with their antics.
Most monkeys do not have a highly developed sense of morality. Indeed, if its fun, they?ll do it. Their primary goal is the pursuit of their own pleasure. Monkeys make pleasurable, exhilarating lovers, but beware of the possibility they will stray. Monkeys will try anything once, and if it is the slightest bit entertaining they are sure to try it again. The monkey?s self-serving attitude may be trouble for many other signs of the Chinese zodiac. They are very hedonistic and lacking in self-control. If they cannot find a party they will start their own.
