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. These people, although strong-willed, have a severe competitive spirit about them and have the ability to block all emotions and people out from their lives, which can be viewed negatively. Those born on this day live a faultlessly scholarly life and are attracted to compatible people. As these individuals grow older, they start becoming more emotionally amenable to people and situations around them.

Health
People born on January 23 like to believe that they are their own boss and that they know better about their own health than anyone else does. This could swing either way as these people might be extreme fitness fanatics or may believe they do not need an exercise routine at all. They often seek medical advice as a last resort and they should make it a point to get their health checked regularly.

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.
