Rat Chinese Zodiac Sign - Characteristics, Personality, Meanings and Compatibility

Characteristics and personality of the Rat
Rat has charm, extraordinary aggression and belligerence. At first glance, appears to be calm, serene and cheerful, but appearances are deceiving. Behind all this lies a constant internal movement and deliberately cultivated aggressiveness. Most Rats produce permanent confusions and chaos. They are also stubborn.

Rats love the company of friends and enjoy every kind of gossip. They like bad-mouthing others therefore they have mostly acquaintances rather than actual friends. Sometimes they can be risky gamblers and gourmets. They don’t want to miss something. They are constantly terrified of falling asleep and missing anything important.

Although the Rats live intensively in the present, at the same time they care deeply for the past. Male Rats but especially female Rats will often fill their cabinets with completely useless stock, which they later calmly throws away or simply destroys. They use even their last cash to buy completely irrational things.
