Leo Personality Traits
Since the Leo is ruled by Apollo the God of Sun, the Leo folks are sunny, enthusiastic, confident and generous. The Leo men have strong male chauvinism and they are face-saving; the Leo women are enthusiastic and loyal to their friends. Leo is the second astrological sign in summer and the hot summer endows the Leo people with courage and resource. With the innate leadership, they always like to command others and have the strong organizing ability, allowing them to accomplish a great deal. However, the over confidence makes them arrogant; what's more, Leo people are stubborn and often overreact, sometimes making others don't know how to get along with them.
A distinguishing feature of the Leo people is their open mind and they try their best to break through the energy limit and overcome difficulties and obstacles, so as to create a new and brilliant situation. Leo people are graceful and attractive; they have grand ambitions, great perseverance, invincible competitiveness and extraordinary courage. Those folks are magnanimous and passionate, featuring heroism and idealism.
Although Leo people always want to make an impression, they are fragile as well because they care too much about others' eyes and they are too sensitive, thus often unhappy; their personality of unwilling to acknowledge defeat is also a source of their unhappiness.
Of the 12 astrological signs, Leo is the one which like most to hear lies but the Leo people don't like to tell lies; even a single white lie will make them flattered. It is said that the emperor in The Emperor's New Clothes
