Characteristics and personality traits of the Water Tiger

Here we have the affable, happy-go-lucky Water Tiger.

Some people are born to interact, bring a smile to our faces and a little ray of that all-time absentee, the sun, to our lives – and this is one such character.

He’ll also be full of ideas, one plan one week another the next – they’re normally well conceived, too, just never actioned.

He’s positive, he’s kind, he’s adorable, he’s loveable, but he does need one thing – a little guidance.

It’ll make all the difference, because his intentions, his ideas, and concepts are all fabulously well-conceived – but the implementation of the aforementioned may well become an ongoing issue for these happy, upbeat boys.

Types of Tiger

Each zodiac sign is associated with one of the five elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. Their predominant element is Wood.

Metal Tiger: Family-oriented, patient, tolerant. Will have smooth careers but must not become overconfident.

Water Tiger: Straightforward, they work hard and go after what they want. Difficult early years, but middle ages will be full of fortune. Should not marry early.

Wood Tiger: Honest and don’t have much to worry about. Their lineage will make them proud.

Fire Tiger: Composed, smart, and enjoy learning. They will meet supportive and helpful figures in life.

Earth Tiger: Extremely intelligent, but often go to extremes and can endure big mood swings. A good opportunity will present itself to the Earth Tiger.


The Tiger is the most compatible with the Pig, for the Pig and the Tiger are willing to make sacrifices for each other and have similar life goals.

Horses are also able to catch the Tiger’s eye, and their relationship will build on mutual trust and respect. A Tiger will also warm up to a gentle and honest Dog.

The Tiger and Pig are the most compatible, while the Monkey and Tiger clash

A Monkey and Tiger have clashing personalities. They want and need different things, and they will constantly argue in a relationship.

Tigers and Snakes don’t understand each other, and the relationship will be full of suspicion and frostiness.
