The Goat Personality

The Goat (or Sheep) is the eighth Sign of the Chinese Zodiac, and is a Yin Sign associated with the Fire Element. Goats are genuinely nice people, charming, amiable, and sympathetic to the needs of others. They hate to criticize and always look for the best in people, including themselves.

Sometimes they are too sensitive for the real world; they often misinterpret situations. They can also be very shy, especially in front of those they like. People under this sign can be insecure.

They need to feel loved and protected and are easily drawn into complex predicaments. This being so, they usually shy away from confrontation, pull back when faced with heavy decision-making, and blatantly refuse to take an unpopular stand in a conflict.

The Goat is thought to be the most artistic or creative sign of the zodiac. The Goat is artistically talented and has a great sense of fashion. Chances are that this type will prefer to be a designer or painter, or go into the kind of profession where he/she can make the most of his/her gift for creating beautiful things.

These people are extremely beautiful creatures - they think before acting, and try not to hurt anyone's feelings.
