Pig, or Boar, people are said to be sincere, sociable, thoughtful, and intelligent. You are probably a Pig if you were born in 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971, 1959, 1947, 1935, or 1923, but double-check the exact dates if your birthday is in mid-January to mid-February because the Lunar New Year is on a different date each year. "Wikipedia's Chinese Zodiac page":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_Zodiac is a good starting point for more information about all of the signs and their meanings.
