Most people have a particular affinity to one or two elements in the Five Elements system. These characteristics often manifest in their personality traits, behaviors, and tendencies. In this post, I will explain the characteristics of Water type people.
Water type people have a strong affinity to the Water Element, which manifests in self-sufficiency, privacy, solitude, and a search for truth. Water type people often have the need to be alone. They tend to be private and do not feel comfortable talking to strangers. Compared to Wood or Fire type people, Water type people are not as quick-tempered or volatile. Water type people tend to be persevering, patient, and genuine. They generally do not like confrontation. However, when it comes to something they truly believe in, Water type people can be highly opinionated and hard-headed.
Water type people tend to have relatively large kidneys and a relatively large urinary bladder. Their affinity with the Water Element sometimes manifests in their relatively small forehead and deep-set eyes. Water type people tend to become easily suspicious and critical of others. They do not easily open their hearts, so it takes time to really bond with Water type people. But once you become friends with them, the friendship tends to last long.
