Personality Traits:
People born under the year of the Rooster tend to hide their conservative natures via a display of aggression and self-confidence, however they are very "dignified".  Roosters come in two types: those that are very somber and those that are very communicative.  They love to be the focus of attention, showing scant regard for the feelings of others and as a result they are often susceptible to flattery and sycophancy.  Other personality traits include: vigilance, decisiveness, straightforwardness and accuracy.  They have a love of debate and dispute, but can also be very critical and forthright.  Roosters tend not to be very creative or adaptable, but still like to be noticed and especially to be given awards.  However they are excellent with money and are great purists to the degree that they will not allow for human weaknesses.  Their minds work along scientific lines and generally they are genuine and "well meaning".

The year of the Rooster: is one of a huge dissipation of energy, with only a precarious balance, which can often lead to arguments.  It is a cautious year where no-one wants to listen to anyone else resulting in many disagreements and "frayed nerves".  However no-one will undergo too much hardship.
