It is not uncommon to find people talking about two types of Capricorns; both tend to be patient and practical, one tends to have a stronger drive for success and happiness. Capricorns are also sometimes known for being mean but this streak is as often directed at themselves as it is other people.
Capricorns are prone to finding marriage later on in life and once the career path is firmly plotted. However, Capricorns make good partners and provide well for their partner and family. One thing to note is that Capricorns can be awfully strict as parents but will make whichever sacrifice is necessary to help their child progress.
Capricorns work well by themselves and often have an aptitude for science. Capricorns are very independent at work and sometimes isolationist. Capricorns can make good leaders but can also be very slow to accept advice or help. It is usual to find Capricorns working for local authorities, government, publishing or finance.
