What are you up to, exactly?
If you live in this world, then you've probably encountered a manipulative person.
We've all had those experiences, whether it's with friends or intimate relationships, that you find out what it means to be played. Most of us aren't even conscious that we do it, it just happens and we leave the situation utterly confused.
All of us have different personalities and have perfected our ability to keep our flaws at bay, especially when it comes to social situations. And we all have that really manipulative side of us that, of course, we can't deny.
Whether or not we are conscious of it, let's face it, it's a survival skill we, unfortunately, need to pull out sometimes.
It's funny because more often than not, we find ourselves getting annoyed at the very things we ourselves do.
Some of this behavior comes out when we drink or maybe it's just your personality all the time. Regardless, we are all manipulative in one way or the other.
Depending on your Zodiac sign, some people can be more manipulative than others.
Your willingness to manipulate will range differently in various situations and of course, with different people.
When each of these 5 zodiac signs find themselves in sticky situations, they're most likely to do their best and manipulate the entire thing.
Some are more stubtle than others, but nevertheless, they're the signs to watch out for (or at least keep a close eye on).
1. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Although she's extremely resourceful, don't be fooled. A Scorpio is really distrusting and secretive.
Say she's your best friend all throughout high school and then suddenly, she finds a reason to not trust you. She'll secretly start hanging out with other people. Lo and behold, by the time you turn around, she'll already have a new best friend. (OUCH).
She tends to be extremely jealous when she sees you're in a relationship and figures you already made the decision that it — not her — takes full priority. She'll leave herself out and then blame YOU for it. Yeah, she's an excellent leader and extremely persuasive.
In the end, she'll have you scratching your head, wondering if it was you who did wrong. She's the manipulation expert and she knows it.
2. Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
A Cancer is deeply intuitive which can, of course, be a blessing. However, in some cases, it can be your worst nightmare. A Cancer is HIGHLY imaginative and will blame you for scenarios that NEVER happened.
You'll honor her as your bridesmaid and instead of appreciating that, she'll sit at your bridal shower and compare your reaction to the gift she gave you, to your reaction from everyone else's gift. Then, she'll find ways that you didn't react the same and claim that you like the other gifts better than hers.
She's the girl who can find reasons to hate you because of what you did to her when you were 5 years old, and even though you're getting married, she still thinks you're the same person. Sorry, but her emotional nature can become hard to deal with when she's manipulating your friendship.
3. Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
A Gemini is seriously thoughtful, but this can take a turn for the worst. A Gemini is extremely indecisive, which is why she masks her indecisiveness by making, what seems to be, confident decisions. However, the minute you turn around, she'll probably be resenting you for the decisions SHE made.
A party is actually the worst atmosphere for a Gemini, because she's so social and seems to be ready for whatever the night has in store. However, she'll go home with you that night and probably become very serious and end up regretting what happened. Not cool, girl.
4. Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
So, your girl Pisces is totally selfless and willing to help you out at the drop of a hat. However, it totally makes you question whether or not she's actually for real. Sometimes she's so desperate to help others that you almost wonder if it's for selfish reasons. Here's the bad news: sometimes, it is.
She'll want you to go out every night because she knows you're going through a rough time, only for you to realize she's using your vulnerability to make things easier for herself. Because the Pisces woman tends to err on the quiet, reserved side, if you're in your own hard place, she has time to be the 'cool' girl for once.
Later though, she'll come crying to you about all the chaos she finds herself in, even when she's the one that creates most of it herself. Playing the victim is her M.O.
5. Leo (July 23 - August 22)
A Leo woman is crazy passionate, but most of all, she LOVES to take charge. She's the girl that will argue to the DEATH to prove that she's right even though she's wrong. One respectable thing about a Leo, though, is that she's pretty upfront with what she's doing. This goes for when she's totally being manipulative, too.
She owns her actions and won't shy away from telling you how she feels. For this reason, her actions are considerably meaner and hard to decipher. It's like, she's so upfront that she'll tell you she likes the same boy you do and will continue to go for it even though she knows you liked him first.
She's the girl who will compensate her pure LAZINESS with her big mouth. Meanwhile, you're like, but you didn't do the work? She'll be all, "of course I was working on stuff for it ALL DAY!" Then you're all, "so where's some of the work?" and then she'll start yelling at you about something that happened yesterday. Okay, Leo. Nice cover.
