Personality Traits & Characteristics of Famous People Born on June 1

Personality
People born on June 1 are highly curious. Inquisitive at both social events and at work, these people seek to learn everything they can about human behavior. They easily get bored with extensive details, and prefer to learn superficially about everything, and everyone. A lot of their energy is focused outwards; studying people and perhaps even imitating them to feel like them. Unfortunately, this lack of focus on their own-self can lead them to never learn much about their own nature. As a result, it may seem difficult to them to verbalize their own hopes and dreams, whereas they can list off the hopes and dreams of others.

Health
People born on June 1 are always on the go. With a natural distrust of doctors and medicine, they rarely seek them out. This coupled with their busy schedule, often leads to not getting regular check-ups or not even going to the doctor when they are seriously sick or hurt. This attitude can lead to great health problems later. However, they like to practice preventative medicine by eating right, drinking lots of water, and exercising frequently. The fresh air also revitalizes them, and they are quite drawn to it. These people enjoy being outdoors and gain health benefits from it.

Finance
These people like to have money to splurge, which leaves them in a tight situation financially. They are generous individuals who enjoy spending money on other people, buying them gifts, pampering them.
