Duke are a true rebel, fond of adventure and everything that excites their spirit. You look for a way to be free, and you’re the one who constantly changes. You believe life to be an adventure, and the freedom to be your core, something your life revolves around. It’s not all about the life, as ultimate freedom requires you to be on the move, constantly active and weary of the events around you. The freedom is what Duke believe brings out their true self, talents hidden within them, and they’re right, as for their personality goes, trying out new things is a must, but beware, as this can also lead them into thinking there is no border they cannot cross. Indulging in the unhealthy and dangerous things can turn out to be your downfall, and one way or another, you may find your freedom to be not as good at least when observed by the ones in your community.

Duke are not focused, and this may lead to their life turning into a messy, unorganized event, but they do exceed in communication which opens the doors for them to be anything from the politician to the salesman. Yes, you can also find your talents to be useful as a lawyer or PR, but this would require you to dedicate yourself to one thing, which you may find hard. To the people around Duke, youthful enthusiasm, overreacting, and open minded way of life will be attractive quality as these are infectious by the definition, which means some may find them just as good as they believe to be.

As for your relationship with a significant other, well, you look for a person to keep up with your pace, and this can be hard. The downside is that you are fond of shallowness, and you can fall in and out of love as frequently as one can. Duke are not a person one can trust, and definitely not a person to commit, but that doesn’t mean they won’t try, and perhaps, they’ll run into someone who is as active and as quick as they are. As for your social skills, well, it’ll definitely help when in need of, but you must be aware not everyone can see with your eyes, and some people require things to be a bit more specific.

Duke need to think about their self-discipline, and improvement, as this is one of the problems they’ll encounter given their personality is not as disciplined, but as a long as they live in the border, and as long as they respect the healthy limits, the success is guaranteed, in every area of their life. To some, you may seem like the one who has no respect, but it doesn’t have to be that way, so make sure you pay attention to details. Your work may not be meticulous but you can at least double check and hope people will see this as your effort to be within the line drawn by them.
