Rats are known for being industrious and sniffing out opportunities. This is the first sign of the Chinese zodiac, and as such, they are often born leaders. Because of this, they often think of themselves first before others, and this should be watched for. They are fussy and detail-oriented, but are quick to become angry and love to gossip and dispense their opinions. Often ambitious and supportive of friends and coworkers, rats are often successful in their careers and don’t like to switch, but will if another offer is better.
A common rat trait is to be unwilling to apologize or acknowledge their mistakes, yet they’re
very fair in business dealings.
