Character of the Monkey

The Monkey is eager to learn, cheerful and energetic. The Monkey is the most vivid sign of the Chinese zodiac. These people always have new ideas and all sorts of plans. The purpose of this is in most cases that they themselves get better or that they get their way. The Monkey is a star in manipulating others.

The Monkey can also be very erratic. They always have their own agenda. These people are generally intelligent and astute. However, they are not always wise. In principle, these people could well have a managerial position, but others are at the mercy of their whims. De Aap is social and likes it when there are many people around him. These people are optimistic in nature and are independent. They will not shy away from a challenge, but will gladly accept it, and they are also prepared to take risks.

The Monkey is an extroverted and noisy personality, who especially love himself. In addition to many friends, children will also want to be at the Monkey. De Aap hates routine and a fixed structure and constantly needs new experiences, new incentives and new challenges.

Work of the Monkey

The Monkey does not fit well into the business world, because business partners can do little with the sometimes crazy plans of the Monkey and the capricious nature. The Monkey will not keep a job quickly, they often change jobs because they do not like routine.

De Aap can thrive in a profession in which they can use their inventiveness and cleverness. They need a job where there is always enough variety and challenge. The Monkey can be ruthless if they want to achieve something or if they have to compete.

In addition, they are often an asset to companies thanks to their cleverness and great imagination. Once they have a goal, they will fully go for it. A profession as a journalist, teacher, entrepreneur or therapist would suit the Aap well. We also see De Aap in professions as accountants, because they have a good sense of finances. Handling money well is another story.

The Monkey in love


Character in love

The Monkey enjoys new challenges and new conquests in the field of love. These people love the idea and the feeling of being in love. The Monkey harnesses its full talents through the guidance of a partner, but the Monkey is not easily caught. He is constantly in need of new stimuli and experiences because he will focus his interest differently on something else. Their interest must be constantly maintained.

The Monkey can handle conflicts in relationships badly and would therefore rather flee than fight for them. They are humorous and charming partners. Once the Monkey has chosen the right partner, he will do everything to maintain this relationship. De Aap is looking for a partner who has an open mind and is not too sensitive.

Perfect match

The Monkey fits well with the Rat and the Dragon. These three animals fall under the “doers” of the Chinese zodiac. These people are energetic, active and practical. They are ambitious and focused on the future. Just like the Monkey, the Rat is resourceful. De Aap then provides the strategic side, while the Rat provides innovative ideas. Just like the Monkey, the Dragon is also resourceful, intelligent and active. These two will go well together.

Other good combinations

Monkey – Horse
These two may first have to pronounce some things and clash in each other’s dominance, but if this has all been given a place, this can become a long-term and stable relationship.

Monkey – Rooster
These two are fine with each other, but it is not a love affair.

Monkey – Pig
These two enjoy the pleasure and excitement that they can find and experience with each other. However, when problems do occur, it appears that this is not an excellent combination.

Don’t do better?

The Tiger. The Tiger is spontaneous and intuitive. De Aap, on the other hand, is more closed on an emotional level. As a result, the Tiger gets the feeling that the Monkey is calculating and he has the feeling that the Monkey is slowing him down. The Monkey, on the other hand, does not understand why the Tiger reacts so spontaneously to everything. Although they are both ambitious in their own way, they cannot find each other in this.
