People born under the year of the Monkey tend to be generally good at "mastering anything" they put their hands to, and they are also successful. This is possibly due to a combination of personality traits including: charm, cleverness, quit wittedness and their love of a challenge. They are also crafty, competitive, envious and have a flexible character. At times they are capable of great dishonesty, they can be both self-centered and narcissistic and can often have a superiority complex, believing themselves to be above others. They always manage to give good reason for their deeds and with a total and unshakeable belief in themselves, they feel that they always know best and are seldom discouraged. Although they have a complete lack of impartiality they do have good intellectual skill and good memories. The monkey has an avid inquisitiveness but likes to find the easy way out of any problems.

With all of this success around no-one will know what they are doing. A haggling and shamming it year full of luck and one where no-one will accept no for answer.
