Can your birth season affect your mood ?

Do you grow up to be more irritable if you are born in winter ? Image Credit:
The time of the year in which you were born may play a role in determining your temperament as an adult.
There has long been a connection between the way you feel and the time of the year, but according to the results of a new study conducted by researchers from Hungary the season in which you were born can also play a significant role.

To determine just how much your birth season affects your mood in later life the research team evaluated the temperaments of 4,000 people and then matched that data against their birth dates.
The results indicated that people born in the summer months are more likely to experience rapid mood swings than those born in the winter. Those born in the spring or summer were also generally politer in demeanor and those born in the winter tended to be more irritable.

Elements likely to contribute to these differences include the outdoor temperature, the amount of nutrients available and the light exposure levels at the time of your birth.

"Season influences how likely parents are to procreate," said study author Xenia Gonda. "So there may be both environmental and genetic reasons."

technically #19 ZOD, it would not be the same time since you are born 9month later. i know its not the same time but the correlation is the same. i was born 9 months after conception, ergo, by this theory my personality is based on when my mom got pregnant

I was born on a hot summer morning. I prefer the coldness of winter though.

So your sister turned into a crab? Well actually she's a Sagittarius...but I always did think she seemed more like a Cancer.

I like to think my being a miserable human being is based on my own choices than it is the time when my dad knocked up my mom. Pretty much this. Either that or involuntary conditions.

How does this apply to capricorns born in tropical countries? this bears repeating. there are plenty of places in the world that actually don't experience the traditional four seasons. mayber even most of the world.

What these dingbats call science is what I call crock. Do the same scientists believe that astrology is accurate at times? They certainly give off that sense of mysticism. The problem with their study is that they do not take environment, upbringing, social class, and other factors into light. Those things really matter. The season one is born in means very little.
