October Born Personality

October-borns are raw and authentic people. Their powerful personalities help them achieve great things in life without having to work hard as much as everyone else.

They shine so brightly that everyone wants to have them in their corner. They attract people with their charm and grace, cultivating as many meaningful friendships as they can manage.

October-borns live for connection and bonding. They derive their own fulfillment by caring, giving, and sharing. They can be social when they want to, but most times they like to retreat and offer themselves some peace and quiet; this is one of the ways they can get in touch with themselves and feel alive again.

October Birthday Traits

October is associated with so many traits. Some of which are not as good as we had hoped. We have classified the traits into positive and negative traits below.

Positive October Traits

October-borns are known to be very friendly and hospitable. A mini chat with an October-born person who you run into by chance could leave you feeling a lot better. They know how to make people feel at home and well at ease with them.

They are very understanding and accommodating; they are not dismissive or inattentive. They place a lot of value on human relationships and tend to preserve theirs to the best of their power.

Negative October Traits

Being considerate and compromising makes them vulnerable to hurt. Most times, doing all these things doesn’t guarantee that the people they chose to put first will stick up for them when their turn comes around.

October-borns are not always very decisive; they can spend hours upon hours trying to pick that one thing, weighing all their options, and analyzing the whole situation.

They may not be as much of an open book since people who are getting to know them might struggle quite much during the talking stages.
