This Is Your Most Annoying Quality, Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Humans are complicated, multi-faceted creatures.
As sweet, and funny, and gosh-darn lovely as our kind can be, we all have our flaws.
And some of them are not pretty.
Being the accurate science* that it is, astrology is often a solid place to start when you're seeking to get a better idea of your personality traits. Same goes for your most unattractive qualities.
So, in the name of good old self-reflection (hey, we all need it from time to time), we've written up a list of every star sign's most annoying characteristics.
Are you ready?
Here we go:
Capricorn, December 22 - January 19:
Common complaints about Capricorns tend to be related to their tendency to be unyielding in their views.
Once a Cap has made up their mind on something, they are unlikely to consider other alternatives. Therese Tucker - a psychic/medium - tells Bustle that Capricorns deeply feel that "their way is the right way". Sure, this might be accurate occasionally, but constantly assuming you've got the answers gets tiring for those around you.
Aquarius, January 20 - February 18:
Distant and aloof
Our water-loving pals like to silently reflect on what's going on in their world, and this can mean they appear withdrawn at times.
Some may find it tricky to build a deep connection with an Aquarius because of their logical approach to emotional encounters. It can come across as a wee bit insensitive if you're turning to an Aquarius for a shoulder to lean on.
Pisces, February 19 - March 20:
It's great - healthy, even - to be in sync with your emotions. Let's get that much straight. But sometimes, the fish sign can be overly sensitive to interactions that probably don't warrant their attention.
Pisceans are big feelers. They fall in love quickly. They fantasise about fairytale endings. And they let their minds run away with them. It can be a sweet trait, but it can also be confusing to outsiders who don't share their emotional responses to most situations.
Aries, March 21 - April 19:
Aries, you have an ambitious side. And while that is generally quite impressive - kick your goals, mate - there are times where it slips from motivation to aggressive competitiveness.
No one likes to share a room with someone who constantly views them as a rival to be beaten. Lighten up a little, yeah?
Taurus, April 20 - May 20:
You're not surprised to learn the bull is associated with a headstrong nature, right? The Taurus has little interest in shifting their routine or beliefs and is set on doing things their way.
This sign also has a tendency to prioritise their comfort above all else, which can quickly lead to self-indulgent, lazy behaviour.
Gemini, May 21 - June 20:
Ah, good old Gemini. These guys get a bad wrap a little too often; they're generally quite likeable, actually. But the duality of the Gemini personality can throw people.
Indecisiveness and an unpredictable nature makes it difficult to trust the authenticity of a person, which is where some Geminis might struggle.
Cancer, June 21 - July 22:
Listen up little crab. You have a glass-is-half-empty approach to life because of insecurities, and that's not great.
You tend to get wrapped up in your head, then struggle to express how you're feeling, instead acting out in bursts of frustration. That's hard for everyone else to read, Cancer.
Stop hiding your emotions, give yourself a little love, and take a big ol' breath.
Leo, July 23 - August 22:
Okay, Leo. You won't like this, but your level of confidence comes across as plain cockiness.
You're proud. You love attention. And you're not above a little (big) boast session.
When you're winning you make sure everyone knows about it, and on the other side of the scale, you don't take setbacks very well.
The arrogance act is frustrating for others to be around. What they don't realise, however, is you play up this side because you're so tough on yourself.
Share the spotlight a little, and give yourself a break in the process.
Virgo, August 23 - September 22:
Impossible to please
For a sign associated with the virginal traits, Virgos are incredibly focused on satisfaction.
A Virgo will settle for nothing less than perfection, and it's incredibly tiring for the mere mortals around them. You better believe they'll correct you on your bad grammar, honey.
At times, this critical eye can be helpful in the way of pushing friends and family to achieve. But most of the time, it's annoying and feels like nagging.
Libra, September 23 - October 22:
Libras are always partnered off because they tend to rely on others for their sense of contentment.
"They are so committed to relationships and partnerships that they start identifying as that unit, rather than as the self," Tucker told Bustle.
This habit is frustrating for outsiders because people want to see their loved ones reach their full potential, rather than latching onto a partner and forgetting about their own goals.
Scorpio, October 23 - November 21:
Extreme (in every sense of the word)
A truly passionate sign, Scorpios love intensely but if you get on their bad side they will come at you with that stinger.
They have a combative nature and will waste no time turning on those who they feel threatened by. They're often ruled by a distrust of others, and they hold dearly onto their sense of power.
Sagittarius, November 22 - December 21:
For a Sagittarius, it's all about the joy of an experience. If something isn't enjoyable for them, they will throw it away and move on.
This ability means they have difficulty understanding when others dwell on a negative situation. At times, this can come across as brash to others.
And if you push a Sag on a topic they don't agree with you on, they're likely to get defensive and shut down.
*Okay, so maybe it's not a literal science.
