Every animal in the Chinese Zodiac has very different characteristics and traits. If you were born in the year of the Dragon, you need to know the Dragon characteristics of this sign.
In this article, we are going to explain what those born in the year of the Dragon are like, focusing also on the different dragon traits, and, to finish, we are going to let you know which is the Chinese zodiac dragon compatibility.
Year of the Dragon traits
If you were born in the year of the Dragon, you are characterized by power and wealth. The Chinese emperor himself is a Dragon. They are touched by a magic wand that provides them with the ability to achieve everything they want. They are creators and makers and have a special tendency for fortune.
The Dragon is a synonym for self-trust, magnetism, attraction, charisma, and action. Thanks to those characteristics, they dare to have impossible dreams which result in great works and projects.
People born under the influence of the Dragon sign are usually popular and trendy. Their aura —a mixture of intelligence, talent, and energy— makes people admire their words and ideas, which is a popular Dragon personality trait.
However, the Dragon can easily be influenced by bad habits, egocentrism, and luxury that usually carry terrible consequences. They are prone to wasting money and have a tendency to be broke. The Dragon's narcissism requires constant attention, and if they don't have it it will lead to frustration, discouragement, and depression.
The Dragon's personality is influenced by the element that characterizes it:
Those who were born in years that end in 0 or 1 are more cautious than the rest. They usually consider the consequences of their actions more than other Dragons. Metal Dragons have a tendency for inactivity, for their wise instinct tells them to analyze the risks of every situation.
Dragons born in years that end in 2 or 3 are influenced by the element of water, which is Yin, while Dragon is Yang. This kind of Dragons have a balanced temperament and reject luxury and power. They focus their positive energy on humanist and altruist actions. Their generosity is boundless.
Those who were born in the year of the Dragon that ends in 4 or 5 are less self-confident and it is more difficult for them to make decisions. The wood element brings apathy and discouragement. Dragons born under this element's influence are constantly fighting against these feelings. If there is someone who can win this battle, that is the Dragon.

Fire influences people born in years ending in 6 or 7. The Dragon is under a mixture of double Yang influence that could enhance his tendency to bad habits. They usually get carried away by passion and luxury and can't handle their own ego. However, they are unstoppable if they can control their energy.
The Earth Dragon in the Chinese zodiac is born in the years that end in 8 or 9. Dragons influenced by the element of Earth are unpredictable and surprising. However, they tend towards isolation and are usually overwhelmed by their own contradictions. It is hard to get along with them due to that special temperament.
Chinese zodiac Dragon personality
One of the most important Dragon traits is their inflexibility. It is not simply stubbornness, but something deeper. They are completely sure that they are superior to anyone else. Therefore, they are always right. Disagreeing with a Dragon means getting in trouble, so think about it before doing so.
Their reactions are not always good and they may respond with anger. Dragons are so impetuous that they can't distinguish between bad reactions and admirable behaviours. Besides, they can fool whoever they want and make people feel admiration and devotion to them.
When they surrender to love, there's no going back. However, Dragons don't always believe in love. Sometimes they are not willing to offer their love if they are not sure that the other person deserves it. Some end up alone. But when they give themselves to love, they love with all their heart. Here is the romantic side of those born in the year of the Dragon.
Natives of this Chinese zodiac sign are great workers and this is one of the most valuable Dragon characteristics. They dream big and usually achieve the goals they set. However, nothing is ever enough for them. They always want more. That is the reason why dragons always succeed in wonderful things.
Chinese zodiac Dragon compatibility
According to the Chinese Zodiac, Dragons have great relationships with the signs of the Rat, the Monkey, and the Snake.
Besides, the Monkey's wit and the Dragon's power favour their love. The Monkey helps the Dragon cross the limits, and they both learn to enjoy life together.
Snakes are easily seduced by the power of Dragons. Their subtle charms will win their heart over, leading to a successful relationship. The snake will balance the worst aspects of the Dragon's nature.
The Rat is the other sign that also helps balance the Dragon's life. They share ideas and points of view. They have a lot of things in common, and that is the key to success in their love relationship.
Among the most known Dragon eminent personalities we can name Rihanna, Sandra Bullock, Liam Neeson, Bruce Lee, John Lennon, Nicolas Cage, Salvador Dali, Sigmund Freud, Joan of Arc, Martin Luther King, Robin Williams, Dr. Seuss, and Frank Sinatra.
The Dragon is 100% incompatible with the Tiger, the Dog, and the Goat (Sheep).
