A Leo Profile: Traits, Characteristics and Personality

The Leo profile includes not just a creative and enthusiastic personality but also one that loves, loves, loves appreciation and being at the center of everyone's focus.

If you notice a flamboyant man who is the center of attention, laughing and entertaining other guests at a party, he's probably a Leo. It's easy for them to do because they posses an almost magnetic pull on people. The Leo profile includes their ability to dress to draw attention to themselves. Unfortunately, it doesn't always mean they have impeccable clothing of fine quality. Sometimes it means they use bright, garish colors and over the top designs to get the attention they need. Their personality is warm, friendly and their exuberance is contagious. Leo's tend to have more ability to sway others than any of the other Zodiac signs.


Because of their ability to lead and influence others, Leo's make great bosses. They're also hard working individuals that give 100 percent to the job. Make certain you let them know how much you appreciate their work, their help or their leadership and you'll hold the heartstrings of the Leo boss or employee forever. They strive for that appreciation. They tend to be great at organization and excel in creating the most efficient method of bringing people together to achieve a task.

The strength of their personality is a double-edged sword in the workplace. On one hand, the Leo profile includes a take-charge attitude that makes them natural leaders. They love a title and a job that gives them the prestige, followed by of course, admiration. Their personality and drive is infectious and they can turn around a company and set it on smooth sailing. On the other hand, they are high maintenance people that need a lot of stroking. Sometimes that leadership turns into bullying or they become an overbearing know it all of the office staff. If you look deeply, you'll notice that their outward self-confidence may only be covering some insecurity. Use praise liberally if you have to give constructive criticism. The Leo profile indicates a real need for handling with velvet glove management as the iron fist makes them tend to borderline on obnoxious.

The Leo profile includes a love and passion for the arts. Of all the Zodiac signs, they tend to be the most creative and artistic. This may account for their flamboyance and flair to create a presence. Many Leos are involved with the arts and make great musicians, artists or artistic managers. They know not only music and art but also how to influence the people around them.

While most Leo's are loving, warm individuals that would do whatever it takes to make sure everyone around them has everything they need, some walk on the dark side of this dominant personality. These individuals tend to be overbearing, bossy and carry the need to always be right. They feel entitled to do whatever they please, simply because they please to do it. Leo's also hold a grudge if they think you slighted them in some manner. The grudges carried by Leo's sometimes span the rest of their life because they don't forgive easily once they feel wronged.

If you've married a Leo, expect him to romance you and bring tokens of his appreciation. He'll give someone he cares about the shirt off his back. Whatever you do, don't try to steal away the spotlight. It's one sure way of ending a relationship. The Leo profile shows he needs appreciation and the center of the universe of those closest to him. He'll tell you how embarrassing your behavior was, secretly harboring resentment for you taking his place in the sun. His passion and devotion to you, however, is well worth giving up your 15 minutes of fame.
