People born in the month of January are highly productive and the credit goes to their determined and focused attitude. They are willing to put as much effort in any job as they can and success comes to them through their hard work and perseverance. They are smart and self motivated people, who can inspire themselves to give their best and achieve the goals they set their eyes on. Achievement comes through struggle for them but they do not let it dissuade them and are tolerant enough to take things to the end. Another strong attribute of January-born people is their decision making capacity as they are keen observers and base their decisions on observation rather than taking rash ones. 

On the personal front, January-born people are of reserved nature, though they can exhibit a good sense of humor at times. They have the ability to generate happiness though expressing their love does not come easily to such people. The main problem with these individuals is that they lack on the social front, as they feel uncomfortable amongst new people.
