Personality Traits & Characteristics of Famous People Born on May 24

Personality
People born on this day can be charismatic and charming one minute, and then suddenly turn irritable and quick tempered. These individuals can often go on tangents regarding just about any subject. Impulsive by nature, these people often take last minute road trips or impulsively purchase expensive designer items. Because of their inconsistent moods, they are prone to experiencing bouts of depression and anxiety over their demeanor and chronically impulsive behavior.

Health
Because they are prone to impulsive actions and inconsistent moods, it is not uncommon for these individuals to suffer from mental illness. Borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder are common ailments.

Career
Often indecisive and rarely self-assured, people born on this day often go from job to job without ever settling on a career field. Because of this, they may find themselves frequently collecting unemployment. They may also find themselves living on pay check to pay check and often picking up second jobs to cover their bills. Because of their inconsistent nature, these individuals do best in jobs with much flexibility in their schedules and hours, such as jobs in food service or hospitality.

Relationships, Marriage & Children
Although they are flighty and indecisive in other areas of their lives, people born on this day are wholeheartedly dedicated to their life partners.
