Their personality depends on the element that influences their sign:
Those born in the years ending in 0 or 1 are the toughest kind of Pig in the Chinese Zodiac. Their gullible nature is substituted by an inflexible personality. Sometimes even too much. They don't get fooled so easily, and they move away from toxic spaces where they can be criticized and badly influenced. They know how to pick their environment well.
Those born in years ending in 2 or 3 are influenced by the Water element. This Boar has a much more introspective nature. For this reason, when the sign of the Pig and the Water element are combined, a very crafty and serene personality emerges. They are always willing to help others by offering them peace and balance.
Those Boars born in years ending in 4 or 5 are influenced by the Wood element, which gives balance to their inner world and reinforces their intellectual strengths. They are very creative and intelligent people, always awaiting their training and eager for knowledge. They have an innate talent for the performing arts and are always looking for beauty.

Some consider them very selfish and stingy people, but in reality, they are not ambitious beings. They are just too strict and have an obsession with getting the most out of their money.

Year of the Pig (Boar) personality
If we could use one word to describe the Pig's nature, it would be 'love.' Love is their cornerstone, and that is why they give their body and soul to the person they love the most. That leads them to be sometimes somewhat naïve, and to suffer more than one disappointment that they do not always know how to deal with.
At the same time, they like luxury and going overboard. However, boars are also excellent, disciplined workers. They like to live well because they know what it's like to work hard, and they work hard to live well. They are realistic, responsible, perfectionist, and only set goals that they can achieve.
In fact, the key to always being optimistic and happy is that they are not ambitious, but rather conformist. It is difficult to find a Pig that is extremely successful, powerful, and wealthy. They always tend to have little money, because they are generous and like to have a good life. Since they don't usually long for great things, they never feel the frustration of needing something and not having it.
Health is a weakness of those born in the year of the Pig. They are very sensitive, so they are usually nervous and anxious. They don't tend to have a healthy lifestyle and eat and drink too much. They sometimes suffer from heart problems.
Chinese zodiac compatibility
Those born in the year of the pig or boar are most compatible with the Rabbit, Goat, and Tiger.
With the Rabbit, they are a very balanced couple, because the Pig is generous, thoughtful and affectionate, and the Rabbit, intelligent and sensitive. This sign gives Pig peace and stability, as well as a big dose of affection. Besides, both are easily contented.
The Pig and the Goat complement each other perfectly because they find in their point of union the perfect mix of affection and passion. The Pig tends more to excesses and sexuality is very important to them, but the Goat will grant them a more spiritual perspective.
The boar's union with the Tiger is surprisingly positive because although they have different personalities, they find balance thanks to their willingness to work and their commitment. People born in the year of the Pig will understand the impulsive Tiger and offer him warmth, while the Tiger admires Pig's fidelity and good humour.
The least compatible signs with the Boar are the Horse, the Monkey, and the Snake.
