Personality traits, such as creativity, dependability, intelligence, and calmness make them very charming to be with. They are more comfortable when left alone or stay at home. Though they love to be in groups, they do not want to be the center of attention. They are reserved and quiet, most likely because they like spending much time in their thoughts. Goats like to spend money on fashionable things that give them a first class appearance. Although goats enjoy spending money on the finer things in life, they are not snobbish.

If goat people are in mental and emotional good spirits, this should have a positive affect on their physical health. Eating fresh and organic produce, and eliminating red meat from their diet when possible, is an effective way to keep healthy. They should get out among nature and commune with the great outdoors.

Relationships.  Generally speaking, goats are private. Therefore, it may take time and effort to know those who born in the year of the goat. Goats would be the one to decide with whom to share their own personal things and when to do so. This is likely to be the reason why most goats have few intimate friends.
