Monkeys are fun and loving people who are always cheerful and energetic. They are very clever. Give a Monkey a boring book to read and he'll turn it into a musical. Better yet, Monkeys will invite everyone to see it free! That's how talented, creative and generous Monkeys usually are.
At parties Monkeys will usually be at the center of attention. Their charm and humor is the key to their popularity. Sociable and diplomatic as they may appear, they can be deceptive sometimes - they hide their opinions of others beneath their friendliness. But they don't hide their emotions. You can probably tell how a monkey is feeling from miles away - they want everyone to know how happy or depressed they are.
Monkeys are very good at problem-solving. Wherever you are, whoever you may be, if you've got a problem pick up the phone and dial-a-Monkey. Monkeys know how to listen closely and work out solutions at the same time. And because of their curiosity, they usually have a great thirst for knowledge.
Monkeys can be unreasonable sometimes, and they have the ability to persuade themselves and everyone around them to believe that they are doing the right thing. Some say monkeys are self-centered and opportunistic, but monkeys couldn't care less - because they are also indifferent.
The monkey has a good chance of becoming famous or well known. Whatever they do, their charm and luck will make them successful. As friends Monkeys are both loyal and devoted, as lovers they can fall easily in love but will get tired of the relationship and look for another. Most Monkeys have one fetish - FOOD. They are not pigs, they don't stuff themselves with food, instead, they just have this habit of eating snacks whenever they like, and wherever they like. And one last truth about Monkeys is that they adore bananas. Go visit your monkey friend's kitchen, I bet you will find some bananas there.
