Personality is a personal attribute but can it be influenced by your birthday and Feng Shui. Read this article to find out more about you.
Your personality is united with your birth year and is known as your birth element. The energy or “chi” developed from this element has its own set of personality traits, which manifest themselves as the Yin and Yang of energy. While Yin and Yang are at opposite ends of the spectrum some individuals are not as specifically defined, and have personality traits from both. Knowledge of your own personality based on the Yin or Yang energy allows you insights that bring harmony into your home and personal interactions with others.
Yin and Yang Traits
You may understand more, when people comment: they fight like cats and dogs, bringing meaning to the polar opposites of Yin and Yang. They can form relationships and work together in an atmosphere pleasing to both and the old saying “opposites attract” can add a balance to their differences be it at work or play. As an individual, they are in their true element with others of the same Yin or Yang personality.
The Balance of a Yin and Yang Personality
At the core of anyones own personality, we can discover what sets them apart if we know what to look for. Each of us has our own unique character traits and ideals, and the balance between a Yin personality and Yang personality can be accomplished. If we look around our own home, we may see a comfortable sofa and thick rugs, cluttered with possessions that establish you as an earth element and a Yin personality, or perhaps a Yang personality with a minimalist view towards decor. Another scenario is the Yang personality living within a harmonious palette of burnt orange/red, with objects that would relate to a fire element individual. By knowing our personality of Yin and Yang, we can strive to incorporate harmony and balance in our lives.
Yin Personality Traits
They manifest themselves as the quiet introspective type and often are seen as shy and non committal. They are happy plodding along focusing on personal forms of entertainment and easily abstaining from a night on the town preferring a night spent in the comfort of their home. Because they are mainly attentive to working out personal problems, they tend not to acknowledge the creative side of their partner, if he or she has a Yang personality. The Yin person is quietly loyal and somewhat dependent. Part of their nature is to hold on to things which no longer have relevance, thereby cluttering up their home and creating stagnant energy.
Yang Personality Traits
This extroverted individual has a tendency to become involved with other peoples lives, at times, making it impossible to separate the accompanying stress that comes with it. They possess idealistic natures with high levels of energy. Socially outgoing, they have innate confidence and self worth.
