Who Are You Calling Chicken? The Year of the Rooster

Personality Traits

If you were born in the year of the rooster, one thing is for sure. Even if it’s only in small measures, there will be an element of exhibitionism in your character. The flamboyant cockerel loves to shout and yell, not caring who he disturbs in his quest for attention. Many people born under the Chinese zodiac sign of the rooster are confident to the point of arrogance, highly driven, and unwilling to sugar the pill when it comes to voicing their opinions.

These personality traits have their advantages when it comes to getting ahead in the workplace. Although their pride can be annoying, their ability to organize themselves and others makes them suitable for positions of power. As a boss or a colleague they can come across as blunt as they refuse to pull their punches, but you can be sure that they will never tell a lie or conceal the truth.


In social situations, the Rooster is unmissable. Whether you like him or not, you’ll notice him. He naturally gets on well with the Ox who is strong and sensible enough not to be swayed by his bragging, and also rubs along well with the equally self-assured Snake. Unsurprisingly, the mild-mannered Sheep gets on the Rooster’s nerves, as does the timid Rabbit who shies away from controversy and conflict, and finds the Rooster’s natural boldness crass and tasteless.

When it comes to relationships, Roosters fare best with Oxen and Snakes, as well as other confident signs that aren’t threatened by the force of the chicken’s personality. When all the bluster is stripped away, the Rooster is actually a very loving sign.


Hens in the celebrity world include Britney Spears, Michelle Pfeiffer, Catherine Zeta Jones and Dirk Bogarde.
