丁 fire people can be pictured as a candle light in the night.
Just like a candle light, 丁 people are mild, conservative, courteous and passionate. These people do not have strong personality. Neither hot nor fiery, they often do not let others know their directions or movements so as not to stir up people’s attention. So, most of the time, others will not know what 丁 people are thinking.
丁 people are quiet, warm and unhurried. They have very high endurance and tolerance levels which is totally different from their 丙 fire counterparts. In order to get along with 丁 people, patience, and sensitivity must be exercised. One must also be careful not to be too frank.
丁 people are not negative or lack self-confidence, but instead, they are hiding their thinkings and feelings in their heart, just waiting diligently and attentively for the right opportunity to come. They wait for right time, just like in a situation where a fire waits for the various conditions to reach burning point.
The nature of 丁 people is just like a small fire, from ignition till burning everything to ashes. Their contemplation is profound, behavior is careful and cautious and their thinking is a careful planned advancing army, planning every matter to completion.
丁 people will have a tendency to be very close to those who know them well. They dedicate their hearts even to the extent of sacrificing themselves. Being thoughtful of the feelings of those people who are close to them, they will not tell the truth or reject them, even if they are aware that they might lose out. This is like a fire sacrificing himself to bring warmth to those near them.
Shortcomings of 丁 people are that they tend not to display their inner qualities or feelings before reaching burning point. This may cause others to misunderstand them and think that they are indecisive. They tend consider every matter in details over and over again. They also tend to become suspicious easily and hence the might over-estimate themselves.
