No matter how bad problems may seem, they will try to work them out honestly, yet sometimes impulsively. They prefer to solve all their problems on their own rather than seeking help.
Pig people don’t make many friends but they make them for life, and anyone having one as a friend is fortunate because they are extremely loyal and treat their loved ones with great kindness.
The pig is a peace-lover, strong and straightforward. They are quick-tempered, yet hate arguments and quarrelling.
They don’t talk much, but have a great thirst for knowledge. Although they can appear well informed on the surface, upon further investigation they often reveal rather limited knowledge.
