People who are born under the Taurus sign are often labeled as many things ranging from short-tempered through to downright aggressive. However, there’s a lot more to the Taurus personality than just being a hothead all of the time and they possess many unique and distinctive traits and characteristics that many have no idea about. So to give you a better sense of what it really means to be born under the sign of the Bull, let’s dive into the Taurus personality by revealing 12 unique characteristics, to know why TAURUS is actually the best zodiac sign of all.
Reason #1: Taurus is independent and incredibly self-reliant.
Taurus is independent and strong at all levels – physically, emotionally, and financially. They like to do things their way. They are perfectly fine with being alone, this way things get done the way they want them to be done, and certainly aren’t afraid to take on a new project or lead others. Taurus is not a follower, but they are not the brave one either.
They often prefer to work on their own rather than in a group. Taurus are independent enough to make their own decisions without getting back to you for an opinion. They don’t go around looking for sympathy from others. They don’t look to others for support. If things don’t go right and life throws them lemons, they ‘make lemonade.’
Taurus are proud of their ability to get shit done for themselves without having to rely on the charity of others. They believe in creating their own future rather than simply leaving it up to fate or chance. They are self-starters and go-getters, they prefer to make their own luck.
Reason #2: Taurus are powerfully resilient.
Even when they get knocked down, they don’t let anything KEEP them down for long. They can get through anything!
The gift of the Taurean is resilience, fixity, and endurance. Taureans are often accused of being too fixed in their opinions and too slow to embrace change or mental motivation, but their insights have settled slowly, taking time to mature, and thus carry a strength of permanence that is resistant to superficial movement. The Taurus is extremely tough and resilient and able to get back up no matter how many times they fall over in life. A Taurus is the most resilient person in the world who is forever ready to take challenges in spite of all the pressures build up.
Giving up is not a Taurus thing. They’re also often a ‘rock’ in their family and a source of strength for their loved ones. In relationships, Taurus will stay put through heaven and hell. They don’t give up easily and will work hard to keep their love alive. Stubborn Taurus never gives up and always holds their ground – even when they’re wrong, which sometimes drives people crazy.
Reason #3: Taurus is a REALIST who deals in FACTS.
Taurus stay with both feet in the ground, do not fly in the air, and dream about sandcastles. They aim for exact and real things. They are firmly grounded in reality and prefer to look at things objectively focusing on facts, not fiction. They are keen-witted and practical more often than intellectual, but apt to become fixed and stick in their opinions through their preference for following accepted and reliable patterns of experience. They are tactful in choosing anything for themselves be it work, relationships or clothes. They want everything which is good, they strive to get it and eventually they acquire it, without much effort.
They’re sensible-minded and don’t start pointless drama. The Taurus is generally pretty cool-headed and calm and chills about things most of the time. Taurus tries not to get too caught up in the petty drama and meaningless gossip. They prefer to focus on the things that are most important including their friends, family, and chasing their dreams! If a situation seems like it getting too headed they’ll try to take some space rather than get involved in trivial fights.

Reason #4: They’re one of the most honest signs in the zodiac.
One of the most refreshing things about a Taurus is that they will tell you exactly how they feel about you to your face. Taurus is honest, truthful in life, and good for their word. Taurus doesn’t like to play games and they tend to be very direct and honest with people. To some, they can sometimes come off as a bit blunt but those closest to Taurus respect and appreciate their honesty and straightforward approach. You always know where you stand with a Taurus and they’re not the type to be ‘two-faced’ or manipulative.
Reason #5: Taurus is loyal until the very end to those who have earned their trust.
Taurus can’t love someone until they can trust them first.
Before Taurus will give you their heart you’ll have to gain their trust first. It can take a while to truly earn the trust and loyalty of a Taurus but once you do you can consider them to be an ally for life. The Taurus sign is widely considered to be one of the most loyal in all of the zodiac and it’s for this reason that many trust them with their innermost secrets.
They are clever in the sense that they choose their friends wisely. They will let others get close to them, but only so close as they want them to. They never share their weaknesses or secrets with anybody as they always want to appear strong and respectable in their social circle.
Taurus would do just about anything for their loved ones.
Taurus is the most loyal sign, so they value meaningful relationships of mutual respect and love. They love to see their friends and family happy and will move mountains to make sure that this is the case. There is nothing stronger than Taurus’ loyalty. No matter how the table turns, they will not be swayed to change their sincere feelings about you. If they love you, it’s usually forever.
They will tolerate the absolute worst for love. They are calm, but only until over-tested. A Taurus may not get to see you on a regular basis, but they have your back regardless. Their loyalty survives long-distance relationships, and their capacity for love is long-lasting and mighty.
Reason #6: Taurus has a sixth sense for detecting bullshit and can sniff you out if you’re being ‘fake’.
The Taurus has a powerful ability to sniff out bullshit, liars, and anyone that’s being ‘fake’. Since they are honest with you they expect the same courtesy in return, if you’re fake with them they’ll have no time for you.
Reason #7: Taurus is focused, determined, and knows how to HUSTLE.
Taurus, like all the fixed signs, has a strong will and great determination. Once a Taurus sets his/her mind to doing something, there is nothing in the galaxy that can stop them. They will pursue their identified goal until it is reached – even if this comes at a great personal sacrifice. Taurus is a worker. International Worker’s Day was established in the U.S. on May 1, 1886, while Neptune was moving through Taurus.
They’re ambitious and hard-working. The Taurus personality doesn’t believe in relying on ‘luck’ to get what you want in life. Instead, they believe in careful planning, fierce determination, and being willing to execute something right through till completion. Never underestimate the abilities of a Taurus who has set their sights on a goal… Taurus hustle very hard for things they want. Their fierce determination combined with a relentless work ethic allows them to achieve big and make it to the top!
Reason #8: Taurus is reliable and the one that you want to have around when the shit hits the fan.
Sometimes you just need that one ultra-dependable and reliable friend that you always know that you can count on no matter what. And for many people, the Taurus is just that. Taurus makes great friends and employees because when they tell you they will do something you can count on them doing whatever it is they say they will do. Taurus is considered to be one of the most reliable Zodiac signs.
Not only is the Taurus reliable they are and you will never be let down by a Taurus. They’ll never disappear just because things get a bit rough and they will often swoop in to save the day when they see their loved ones in trouble. No matter what you’re going through, they won’t leave your side. They have a protective nature, which can sometimes be a bit possessive, but if you’ve been taken under their wing, you’ve got someone looking out for you for life.
Reason #9: Taurus is often called upon for advice because they are FULL of common sense.
The Taurus is well known for their practical mind and it’s for this reason that they often find themselves being called upon by friends and loved ones who are in need of a second opinion or just some damn good advice. When problems arise you can count on Taurus to give you a healthy dose of common sense. Taurus is very, very patient.
They will sit and listen to you rant for hours without getting offended or annoyed. They have the patience that is needed to guide others in the right direction, especially for those who are very lost and confused. Taurus is also good at solving problems, stripping down to basics, and then recognizing where the priorities lie. Value is important, and Taurus has an innate sense of quality.
Reason #10: They set high standards and have a taste for the finer things in life.
Taurus set extremely high standards for themselves and become viciously self contemptuous when they fail to meet them. They try to keep their emotions in tight control, but months of suppressing negative feelings eventually erupt in a Taurean outburst. Taurus does not accept mediocre in their life. They are always looking to experience the very best of things. They aren’t overly flashy but are big on quality and they are willing to work hard to ensure they can live comfortably.
Taurus strives for comfort and the good life. Taurus engenders art, luxury, finances, and valuables. Taurus is all about the pleasures and sensuality of life. If there’s one way to impress a Taurus, it’s by appealing to his or her five senses. From being surrounded by the sublime beauty of a waterfall to indulging in fine cuisine or being wrapped in a luxurious fleece blanket, Taurus enjoy their creature comforts and the beauty surrounding them.
Taurus knows how to pamper themselves and they often have a taste for the finer things in life. They are full of grand plans to make it big and live the good life. They are the sign that tries to keep things simple, and that includes their hobbies and recreational activities.
Reason #11. Taurus WON’T take a shit and if you attack them they will fire back HARD.
Taurus will not take any crap from anyone. They are allergic to stupidity. Since honesty is such a big trait of the Taurus it’s also something that looks for in others… and if you’re lying they can almost always tell. Taurus hates arrogant assholes that think they know everything but they just contradict themselves. Taureans are inherently placid, so it is rare for them to lose their temper and display anger and aggression. When they do, fearful as they become, they lose touch with their true strength and display their vulnerability.
Taurus has a stubborn side that doesn’t back down easily.
Taurus can be a stubborn creature at times especially when they truly believe that they are in the right. They are strong-minded individuals with firm convictions and when they’re convinced of something it can take a lot for them to change their minds. It’s only when the Taurus is provoked that their aggressive side tends to come out but when it does… well let’s just say you’re not going to want to be on the receiving end of it. Like the bull that represents the Taurus, their rage can be enormous and when they are attacked they tend to fire back twice as hard and without hesitation.
Reason #12: Tauruses are classy and the best people to have in your life.
You will most likely find Taurus have a unique style about them whether they are dressing for a high-profile meeting or just slacking in the house. Taurus woman is classy, tasteful, and practical. She prefers powerful statement clothes such as earthy tailor-made suits, designer accessories, and tasteful shoes that will rarely go out of style. Taurus men are classy and sophisticated and you don’t have to impress them with extra make-up. They will like you the way you are. That been said, you can put on a truckload of makeup, show up shabby or just be your natural self.
Taurus is very patient; they don’t run behind success. They take one step at a time and patiently work towards their goal. They are great listeners. It comes in handy to them in their love life. A Taurus partner is a partner for life. Dependable, reliable, and solid they will be loyal and faithful. They are also generous and will shower their loved ones with many gifts and luxuries. If you need sound financial advice, you are safe in the hands of the Taurus woman. She is practical and calculating hence; she rarely makes hasty financial decisions.
Taurus makes the best friends. They’re supportive, genuine, and a whole load of fun. They’re not afraid to call you out on whatever it is you’re up to and will always be the wake-up call you needed. They accept you for who you are. They won’t judge you for the mistakes or choices you’ve made. Above all, they will make you laugh. Being the free souls they are, they have a spark about them that makes them the most enjoyable company to be around.
