Tigers are brave, bold, sensitive, dynamic, fierce, and independent.
The Tiger person can often be found heading the charge, shouting, “go!” whenever there’s a mission to be accomplished, and others admire them for their steely nerve and stout hearts. Tigers like to be independent and do not enjoy being told what to do, so it is common for them to conflict with authority at least once in their lives. Tigers are adventurous and do not like to be tied down.
On the negative side, they can be over-sensitive, overly opinionated, and mistrustful. They will not back down, even when walking away is the best thing to do. They can sometimes have an explosive temperament that can win them plenty of enemies.
However, this sign can be soft, gentle, and warm-hearted when you have won their trust, and they make loyal friends and firm allies.
Career-wise, the Tiger likes to try their hand at many things, especially in the earlier part of life. Acting, writing, singing, dancing, circus performing, travel agents, musicians, and pilots are exciting prospects for a Tiger native. They can become easily bored by jobs, and hence they have a tendency to hop from one to the other until they find something they consider stimulating enough to stick with, in which case they give it their all.
