People born in the year of the ox are patient, do not talk much and are trusted by other people. They are however somewhat peculiar and fanatic and get angry easily. As ox type people like to be alone, they usually do not enjoy other people’s company too much. Nevertheless they are dependent on other people, logical and stubborn. They are hot-tempered and although they only talk a little, they are very eloquent in what they say. Ox type people are both physically and spiritually vivid and alert. It is easy to get along with them. Still, they are rather opinionated and hate failing and facing opposition. They are particularly compatible with people of the Snake, Rooster and Rat type.
