The Monkey is the ninth sign in the Chinese zodiac. People born in the Year of the Monkey tend to be charming, witty, and full of beans. They never stop eating, but their high energy helps them burn off calories. Monkeys are good listeners. They love to help solve problems. If you work with a Monkey, watch your back. Monkeys love to play practical jokes. On the other hand, it is nearly impossible to trick a Monkey. Monkeys prefer urban living to rural lifestyles. The slow pace of the countryside bores the Monkey. These people tend to have a great memory and are highly intelligent. Never underestimate a Monkey. They are always trying to improve themselves. If a Monkey has to wait too long, he may abandon a project. Monkeys aren’t the most patient people. They firmly believe that the grass is always greener on the other side.
