Those born in the Tiger years are powerful, courageous, and deep thinkers. Traditionally, Asians believe that boys born under this sign may be destined to become rulers.

Narrow-minded by nature, it is difficult for tiger people to trust others. They are highly respected, and yet they tend to resent their elders and any one in authority. A tiger person can be stubborn and selfish -- even mean. However, tiger people show a great deal of sympathy for those they love.

Although exceptionally competent, they are often given more credit than they deserve for their achievements. Decisions baffle them, and many times they wait too long to make one.

Asians believe that everyone must guard against three "disasters" in life: fire, thieves and ghosts. It is believed that tigers are capable of protecting people against all three, and so tiger people are usually free of these threats.
