Personality Traits & Characteristics of Famous People Born on January 23rd

Personality
Their ‘never-say-die’ attitude can be a crowd-puller at times and can also work against the natives of this birth date.

Finance
The people born on this day are reckless when it comes to finances and have the tendency to splurge more than they can save.
