Virgo Traits

Things Virgos Should Watch Out For

Critical, clean, and hate disappointment.

Virgos are super critical. They are critical about themselves and others and this can often come across as being mean and lacking empathy. Virgos are their own biggest critics, they give themselves a very tough time and this links in with their need for everything to be perfect and their need to do everything the best they possibly can. Virgos are critical of themselves and they also expect these high standards of others, they are only critical because they put so much hard work in. This critical behavior can come across as being judgemental but believe me, they are not judging you they just care. If a Virgos is putting the effort in to criticize you and tell you practical ways to help your situation it is because they care not because they are trying to insult or upset you.

They are neat and clean all of the time. These individuals love everything to stay in place, even in a mess everything is often in its place. This organization flows through into their belongings, the hygiene, and their everyday life. Virgos appreciate order and this can be a little overwhelming for someone who is not so used to having everything in line.

Virgos HATE disappointment and failure. Virgos are so afraid of failing that they will work themselves to the bone. This is dangerous as it can be hard for Virgos to slow down and stop, failure is not an option for a Virgo and this can often mean that they will carry on working even if they are stressed or tired. Virgos need to remember that failures happen and they do not reflect on you as a person, allow others to support you and learn from your failures rather than beat yourself up.

Tempers, defensiveness, and needing the upper hand.

 These individuals do have a venting raging temper. It does not always happen and Virgos are often very chilled and go with the flow but once angry they will often vent and they will not stop talking. Virgos have a lot of feelings and when they are upset or angry they need to get all of these feelings out and make sure that they are being understood. Virgos always need to be right and this often means that they will talk and talk and talk until they have justified everything. A Virgo’s temper can be scary, it is often logical practical and very to the point, these individuals can get mean because they are so used to be critical of themselves it is easy for them to use this critical thinking in a mean way towards others, not that every Virgos does, but they can have a lethal tongue if they do. 

Virgos love to have the upper hand. They are sneaky and some Virgos are so stubborn that they won’t want to admit this but once in a while, Virgos are a little sneaky. They over-analyze everything making them very good at calculating their actions. Whilst this is a good thing a lot of the time it also means that they have the ability to think 10 steps ahead of everyone else and often try to manipulate events to go in their favor. Virgos are very clever and will sometimes play dumb to then surprise people later on or give them the upper hand, however, this should not be mistaken for their humble nature as Virgos are also humble and will not talk about their achievements so only the Virgo will know whether they are intentionally holding back or not.

One of Virgos biggest problems is how defensive they can be. Virgo people are very critical of themselves as we have already discussed. This habit of being so critical on themselves and so hardworking can make it very very upsetting when someone or something damages their self-image or work. Virgos will often defend themselves when there is really no need and this can be confusing for those who are not used to it but the Virgo is just verbally expressing the critical nature inside of them. When a Virgo is being defensive instead of arguing with them try to slow the situation down and support them by reminding them that they are fine and their personality is not being attacked.

After putting so much time into things Virgos will often burn themselves out and need space alone to recharge. 

It has been said but it needs to be said again as it is important Virgos are critical. They are critical about themselves and those they care about, in a relationship they will care about the other person as much as they do themselves. If it seems as though they are being judgemental about your food choices, they aren’t they are being critical because they care. In the same way that they would be critical about their own food choices, they are being critical about your food choices because they also care about your health and want the best for you as much as they want the best for themselves.
