They can also be, for no good reason, ill tempered, curt and snappy with anyone at times.

People sometimes find it difficult to understand them, as sometimes they are willing to listen to their problems patiently and sympathetically and even go out of their way to help them, but another time, they can also be adamant, impatient and tough to the same person.

Often, they romanticize the past and go on nostalgia trips and talk about the `good old days.' They can very easily live in the past. They should always remember that time keeps changing and they must change accordingly.
