Personality Traits of Taureans
Every different sign in the zodiac has their specific positive and negative personality traits. If you are a Taurean or are close to one, these might feel very familiar!
Positive: Taureans tend to be extremely generous people and will go out of their way to help a person in need. Friends and family can always rely on a Taurean as they’re extremely dependable. This, coupled with their loyalty, ensures that Taureans make friends for life and make excellent employees. A Taurean’s down-to-earth nature makes them easily likeable and they find it easy to make friends wherever they go. Naturally independent, they like standing on their own two feet, whether it’s emotionally or financially.
Negative: Taureans can be incredibly stubborn and whilst they’re relatively easy going, once they’ve made their minds up on something they can become very unyielding. Another negative trait of the Taurus star sign is their tendency for procrastination and laziness. They’ll do something just only when it suits them! Their loyalty can also tip over into possessiveness which can cause strains in genuine relationships. They tend to be careful with their money but this can manifest itself in the way of penny-pinching.
