The leading characteristic that best describes the Monkey personality is a spirit of innovation, best evoked1
in the West by Renaissance2
artist Leonardo da Vinci who was born in a Monkey year.
Extremely curious and thirsty for knowledge, Monkeys are never happier than when absorbing facts and information and, possessed3
of a near photographic memory, usually retain all that they have learned.
Bored with mundane4
, day-to-day details, they are love confronting a challenging problem that calls upon their considerable genius.
Famous people born in the Year of the Monkey: Julius Caesar, Daniel Craig, Bette Davis, Jake Gyllenhaal, Eleanor Roosevelt, Betsy Ross, Diana Ross, Will Smith, Elizabeth Taylor, Harry5
S. Truman, and Leonardo da Vinci.
