Your Chinese sign is the Dog if you were born in the Chinese Year of The Dog.
The Dog's theory on life is materialistic and relies on a special ethic sense. The Dog has a special flair, and when (s)he encounters unfairness, (s)he bristles completely. The Dog is against dishonesty and oppression. It's not a good idea to provoke him/her considering the proverb "The dog that barks does not bite" because it isn't true in his/her case: the louder (s)he barks, the harder (s)he bites.
The Dog is combative and cynical. In his/her opinion, the pessimist is just a well-informed optimist. Nothing takes him/her by surprise, not even the worst scenario. The Dog doesn't really believe in people's kindness and (s)he generally doesn't trust unknown people. However, if you've won his/her heart, the Dog will be a reliable friend to you.
The Dog likes moving in the open air, away from the urban crowd. In the evening, nothing pleases him/her more than sitting by the fire while reading a book.
Philosopher and realist, the Dog does not imagine that (s)he can change the world. To avoid being disappointed, the Dog chooses his/her friends carefully, after (s)he has checked them thoroughly. In his/her closed world, in which affection is the most important, the Dog is finally him/herself: an eccentric and funny fellow.
