Giraffes are graceful, well-groomed individuals who move with confidence and elegance found only in the big game animals. Michael Jordan is a typical giraffe. Tall, good-looking, and successful, he stands heads and shoulders above the rest of the animal kingdom. In full stride, giraffes look like they're flying -- their long legs pumping as they gallop effortlessly through life.

Giraffes are not arrogant but have an extraordinary need to be the center of attention. Although their highly visible frames make them somewhat self-conscious, they would never dream of hiding their height by stooping. Even though they might capitalize on their size they perpetually worry about what other people think, knowing that they're an easy target for jealous backbiters.

Since most of the giraffe's self-confidence is the product of its physical stature, it is fastidious about its appearance. A giraffe's tastes in consumer goods are refined and expensive, leaning toward Armani and Mercedes.

Giraffes prefer to spend personal time shopping or showing off the latest fashions and enjoy being the center of attention. Their aloof behavior is designed to enhance their image, and they certainly could be accused of being too self-conscious.

Even so, giraffes have little need for worldly goods other than personal possessions that serve to enhance their prestige. They have a definite taste for quality and would rather own a few prized possessions than anything else. Their ambitions are limited to having a comfortable living environment, close friends, and universal admiration. Their living spaces tend to be untidy, large apartment or sparsely furnished loft being the giraffe's preferred living environment.

When and if they work, giraffes are able to make a good living with their physical attributes alone. This makes them well suited to be models or dancers. Their heightened aesthetic sense makes giraffes a natural for the creative arts, including writing and acting, and as athletes they have no equal.

Intellectually, giraffes are no owls, but then they've never had to rely on their wits to compete in life. Instead, their graceful presence and charm have provided them with a serene and gentle passage. When necessary though, they display a sharp wit and have an engaging sense of humor.
