Taurus personalities tend to crave stable lives that look like your typical path to success, with a good job, a nice home, and an enviable car. But they aren’t flashy in their approach to life.
As one of their most prominent traits, they know that anything worth having needs to be worked for, and they are willing to put in the hard effort day in and day out to get what they want from life.
While Taurus are characteristically very focussed on their vision for future success, at the same time, they are highly empathetic and in tune with other people.
Combine this with their generous nature and they make the perfect friend whether you are just looking for an ear, or someone to help you move house.
Taurus Personality & Character Traits
1. Tenacious and Perseverant
Taurus tend to believe in the old adage that slow and steady wins the race, and they are able to persevere with things and see them through to the end in a way that others can’t.

When Taurus really makes up their mind about something it can be impossible to shift. They will dig their heels in, and nothing will sway them.
This means that Taurus always follows their own moral compass and is rarely led astray by the suggestions of others.
But it also means that they sometimes stick with things much longer than they should.

8. Practical and Down to Earth
Taurus are imminently practical.
