The Tiger has a reputation in Chinese astrology as having a strong and noble aspect to his character, emitting trust and power. People born in the Year of the Tiger are assumed to obtain some of this creature's honorable and assertive characteristics. Western astrology describes a Capricorn as possessing calm and reserved qualities in their personalities. So, a typical Capricorn Tiger is presumed to acquire much integrity and assertiveness within their cool characters. The Tiger's influence makes these Capricorns strong of mind, trustworthy and reliable. A Capricorn Tiger also has a less-serious and more frolicsome side to his or her personality.
The Capricorn Tiger is straightforward, open, and honest, as well as being friendly, but they can be a little shy. They will usually have to get to know others quite well before they are prepared to relax in someone's company. The Capricorn Tiger's confident exterior hides quite well their inner emotions. These personalities have no problem talking about anything, but when asked about feelings they often clam up. These are private people who always seem to put on a serene persona that is a reflection of how they want others to see them. Only those extremely close to these individuals ever view their real emotionally sensitive state.
A Capricorn Tiger personality has a presence, but it is not overpowering. They are insistent without being pushy, and motivating without bossiness. These character traits allow the Capricorn Tiger to usually get their own way by the charm and gentle persistence. Some of them even have a knack of being able to make the other person think the request was their idea initially. In relationships, these personalities will use all their charisma to woo partners and can be among the most romantic of all Capricorns, although they do tend to be a bit undemonstrative, especially in the company of others.
In a work situation, Capricorn Tigers are happy to take on a bit of responsibility, but do not do well in stressful jobs. They like to do their tasks and then forget about them, and not allow work to invade a home and personal life. A Capricorn Tiger loves his or her home and family and prefers to spend as much time as possible with them. To relax, these people enjoy anything that does not use much energy. They are often book and movie fans who favor staying in rather than going out socializing to wind down. They appreciate good food and like to experiment with new tastes and exotic dishes.
These dependable and charismatic Capricorn Tigers have only one main weakness to their personalities: their loathing of changes of routine; in fact, their dislike of changes of any kind. A Capricorn Tiger likes to know what he or she will be doing and when. If they have an alteration in their usual daily habits, it can provoke their weak spot, and they may be prone to be short-tempered and moody for a while until they adjust. They can also be restless following change or upset due to the Tiger's excitable influence.
