Your Chinese sign is the Rooster if you were born in the Chinese Year of The Rooster.
In the Chinese tradition, the Rooster's red comb symbolizes protection against bad spirits. Knowing that (s)he is safe, the Rooster doesn't hesitate to boast publicly, sometimes ostentatiously.
The Rooster is crazy about honors and medals and (s)he likes his/her talents to be recognized for what they're worth, as well as being congratulated on any occasion. If anybody criticizes a Rooster, (s)he immediately comes at that person with his/her fangs because (s)he can't stand being criticized.
The Rooster's main quality is sincerity. A Rooster always says what (s)he thinks, even at the risk of hurting the people close to him/her. The Rooster never reveals his/her true feelings, though, because (s)he cares very much for his/her own privacy and (s)he doesn't accept anybody to meddle in his/her line.
When in public, (s)he is a real Rooster: (s)he walks graciously, elegantly and all dressed up, curious about everything. The Rooster is a good speaker that enjoys being in the centre of attention. To him/her, appearance is more important than what hides beneath it.
To a Rooster, there is nothing worse than being ignored: it simply depresses him/her. (S)He enjoys spending hours in front of the mirror, admiring his/her colorful and beautiful featheriness. Still, very often the Rooster fails to see the woods because of the trees: because of his/her perfectionism, (s)he pays too much attention to details missing the essential.
The Rooster is a loyal and brave friend. (S)He defends the people dear to him/her without hesitation, even if the situation seems hopeless. The Rooster instinctively respects laws and rules and (s)he never crosses them, no matter what. Moreover, (s)he's a real conformist.
