The Rat type is very sociable. Such people are full of charm and vivacity, and love being surrounded by people. In case of something not turning out as planned, they are able to quickly assess both the hindrances and the new chances, and while others are wondering how to react and what to do, these people have already seen and taken advantage of the opportunity that lies there. They are usually strong-willed and ambitious. On the other hand, they should be careful not to force their ideas on other people. Generally, these people enjoy all forms of social interaction, and no party is complete without their lively wit and humor.
A person born under this sign is extremely hard-working. They want to achieve their goals so much that can seem to be selfish or stubborn, but to those who know a rat - people understand that they believe in what they are doing and approach it whole-heartedly. They are very talented and experienced organizers and are able to handle even the most difficult problems. These people are fair in their conduct and expect the same from those they work with in return. So it is important to remember that these people can be deeply affronted if they suspect that they have been deceived or their trust has been abused. It happened that this type of people can set their goals too high, whether in relation to their friends or in career, but as they are getting older they become more tolerant and wise.
Being in mixed company these people can be open and gregarious and so are welcome to any party. They are interesting interlocutors, usually have a sense of humor and are generous with both their compliments and attention. On the other hand, if such person finds him/herself in a situation where he/she feels that he/she is not being properly understood, a more petty or critical side will probably emerge. It is important to remember that rat people desperately want and need to be understood and others would be wise not to push or corner them since those born in the Year of the Rat jealously guard their privacy.
Rat Love Affairs
In love, these people are often passionate and attentive partners and are not afraid of showing their true feelings. They are overflowing with emotions, especially at the start of a relationship, but if they don't feel the same in return, they may soon grow cool towards their beloved. It is important for this type of person to be completely involved and cared for - they want to be part of their partner's life. What these people need most is security, and if they have been reassured, they become attentive and loving. Actually, these people can make a good company and love to indulge in life's pleasures but they can't stand being rebuked. They have a natural charm, and even though it will take time when such person finds another person that gives him/her the feeling of security and love he/she need, this person will certainly be one of the best partners.
This type of people are very organized and talented, perhaps that is why the Rat makes a good businessman or politician. Such people are often energetic and multi-sided and can usually find their own way. People born in the year of the rat are able to adapt to different environments; it is not a rare thing to find a rat participating in different affairs simultaneously with their main job. These people are excellent tacticians, but they will try to keep colleagues informed in order to preserve their respect and trust.
Unfortunately, it too often happens that as soon as the rat-person earns money, he/she spends it very fast. Maybe that explains the fact why the rat-person is so careful when he/she lends money to others. If you ever borrow money from the Rat, don't be surprised by the high-interests.
