Strengths: alertness, flexibility, observation
Rats are sociable, optimistic and jovial. They know not only how to make friends with anyone, but also how to be a truly good friend. Rats make brilliant spouses, both male and female, very tender, industrious and sagacious.
Any job they do will result in a success, because they easily adapt to changes of the circumstance, have very acute instincts and never stress out. Even if they achieve enough to sustain a thrifty lifestyle, Rats will never stop working hard or doing their best. They are not afraid of difficulties; they face challenges with an open mind and a positive outlook. In fact, for them, disasters are only a chance to exercise in resourcefulness.
