The Tiger Character:

The Tiger person is a rebellious, colourful and impulsive character arousing every sort of emotion in those around him. The Tiger loves being the centre of attention. His enthusiasm and love of life is infectious to others. At his best he is warm, sensitive and sympathetic. At his worst he is obstinate, unreasonable and selfish and finds it difficult to be ignored.

The Tiger person has a super ego. In his prime he will be absorbed in the pursuit of success and the fulfilment of his dream. His life will be volatile however either at the very top when he succeeds or the very bottom when he fails, fighting for every inch of the way. His journey will be filled with every conceivable emotion in the spectrum. Money, power and fame means nothing to the Tiger if his ego has been dented. He will go to great lengths to seek and get revenge which parallels his mean and bullying nature.

At heart the Tiger is a romantic. He loves the outdoors and hates the constraints of indoor activity. He is playful yet passionate and sentimental all at the same time. Every Tiger has a humanitarian touch to him.

When the Tiger is feeling dejected he craves bags of sympathy. Do not try and rationalise right and wrong with a Tiger, logic doesn’t appeal to him much. He loves to hear words of wisdom and will hang on to every kind word of advice given but does not necessarily take it.

The Lady Tiger is a charming, vibrant and absolutely disarming person because this act gets her good reviews. Tiger women love to debate and argue but are not able to take criticism well. Taunting her will only sharpen her claws as she is always ready for a fight.
