Famous People Born On August 22nd

Astrologically, August 22nd individuals fall under the sun sign Leo but characteristically, due to their Leo Virgo cusp birth date, they have traits of both the zodiac signs. While the former makes them confident and outgoing, the latter is responsible for their sometimes reflected introvert behaviour. Another conflicting characteristic feature of those born on this date is their mix of logic and instinctive feeling. These individuals may think from the heart but when it comes to taking decision, they follow the advice of their mind. However, what stands strong for these individuals is their concern and compassion for loved ones, associates and themselves. They are quite sensitive but at the same time sensible too. Though these people are practical and fun loving, their unwillingness to concede to errors cannot be overlooked. Other negative traits of these people are their dominant, egoistical and inflexible manners.
