Personality or character traits can be useful tools to the Counsellor or Therapist in assisting people to better understand themselves.
There are many different types of trait categories. And it is important to understand these do not tell us that all those grouped together under a general trait category have the same traits as one another or are the same in any other way. As we know for a fact that everyone is unique in their individual make-up. Also as people evolve, grow, learn, & develop, their associated traits do indeed change and develop with them.

One well known trait grouping technique is through Astrology and the 12 signs of the Zodiac. So let’s take a short, broad, look at some of the more common traits for each of the 12 astrological signs that may help us to better understand ourselves, and our partners personality & character a little better.

Taurus: tend to be stable & reliable characters with a definite appreciation of beauty, the arts, and indulging in the finer things in life. Taureans are known to be good lovers, both sensual & practised in the art of enjoyment.

Gemini: make great multitasks. Blessed with intelligence which always enjoys a lot of stimulation, & does not tolerate boredom whatsoever! Sometimes prone to being superficial & leaving things undone can be an issue.
