On the other side they can have a reputation for being conceited, a hothead and possessing a sharp tongue. While Dragons frequently help others, rarely will they ask for help.

Dragons prefer to live by their own rules, they know how to gain respect, and being in charge or giving orders comes naturally, and if left on their own, are usually successful. They’re driven, unafraid of challenges, and willing to take risks. They’re passionate in all they do and they do things in grand fashion and are most happy in jobs that allow them to express their creativity. They are high skilled specialists and have strong opinions, although their innate aggression and competitiveness can sometimes lead them into dangerous water.


Dragons will give into love, but won’t give up their independence.

Dragons enjoy others who are intriguing, and when they find the right partners, they’ll usually commit to that person for life.
