They're in for a big surprise.
No one wants to feel that they’re undervalued or underestimated. We all want to feel worthy and appreciated. However, when you’re underestimated, you’re given the opportunity to show your doubters how you really are a force to be reckoned with.
People judge us all the time and most of the time they judge us for things that we have no control over. You might be super-athletic and people assume that all your talents are physical and not that you’re also extremely bright. You’d think that people would know by now that clichés and assumptions are usually incorrect, but still, they seem to fall back on them.
When someone underestimates you — whether it’s based on your gender, the way you look, or something else — they’re spurring you on to prove to them how wrong they are. This can act as motivation to really show them what you’re capable of.
If you underestimate someone in a fight, you’re sure to get beaten. Your guard is down and you’re shocked when they kick your ass.
Throughout our lives, we have many fights: fight to be heard, fight for our rights, fight for justice, and the fight of opposing forces. You may not enjoy conflict but no matter how much you try to, you can’t avoid it. So, if having your opponent underestimate gives you an advantage, then let them underestimate you all they want.
They can talk smack about you with others or insult you to your face, but at some point, you’ll show them exactly how wrong their assumptions about your abilities are and how, in the end, you’ll triumph, whether it’s a work project or a marathon. If you set your mind to do something, people better assume you’re going to kill it.
Here's what people underestimate about you, based on your zodiac sign.
You don't understand it when someone tells you that you can't do something. It actually motivates you to try harder and work at it even more. When your ability is doubted it only fuels your already incredible drive and focuses more on succeeding at that whatever you weren't thought capable of doing. People tend to underestimate your stubborn streak and they go on underestimating you as you cross the finish line.
People tend to not take your vision seriously. On the surface, you may seem a bit rigid and inflexible but you're actually surprisingly creative. You've got big ideas and the wherewithal to complete them. You may not show your work as you go along, but that's okay because the finished project is always sure to amaze. Those doubters are in for a big surprise when you prove to them how wrong they were about you.
People underestimate your strength of will. While on the surface you're a charming social butterfly, underneath you have grit and a strong character. You're a survivor and can take care of yourself and the people that you love. You're also an advocate for social justice and will fight passionately for the things you believe in. You will not be swayed from your convictions.
You love your friends and family passionately but if someone does something that hurts you, you'll never forget it. When you flip from feeling positive towards someone to feeling negative, they need to watch their backs. You may just stop talking to them or you might talk about them behind their back. People underestimate that you never forget a slight or a misdeed.
People tend to underestimate the lengths you'll go to for attention. You will not be ignored. If you have to upstage somebody to get the focus back on you, you will, even if you need to play dirty. You're so naturally likable that your hunger for power may not be obvious, but it's there alright.
You're not one to broadcast your incredible skills so people tend to overlook how amazingly capable you are. You will come up with a solution to almost any problem and you can fix what's broken. You like being able to be awesome under the radar as it allows you to work in peace without other people interfering.
People underestimate your ability to get it done. You present as someone who is lazy and unmotivated, but the truth is once you put your mind to something, you do it. You do what you need to do to achieve your goals; you make plans, you act on those plans, and you accomplish. When people underestimate you, it lights a flame under you. Failure isn't an option.
On the surface, you seem to be almost indifferent but the real you feels emotions very deeply. If someone causes you pain, you'll make it your priority to make them regret hurting you. It can take months or years but you never forget. If they knew the extent of your dark side, they'd be scared.
People tend to underestimate your ability to work the system. You come off as very free-spirited, going place to place without a plan; in actuality, you're fully aware of every deal, every secret discount, and even the people you need to manipulate to get what you want. You want what you want, when you want, it but you don't want to pay extra for it.
People tend to assume that you're stiff, reserved, a rule follower at all times. What they don't know is you have a huge capacity for fun and excitement. When you're feeling good, you're the true life of the party. You can charm the pants off someone when you're feeling it and that's a good talent for you to have because you're extremely sexually adventurous.
Everybody assumes because you're uncomfortable expressing your own emotions or listening to the emotions of others that you have no heart. In reality, you have a big heart and you feel things much more deeply than people think. They may underestimate your capacity for love, only to be surprised when you express it.
People assume that you're lost in your own world, but actually, you're much more present than they know. You're paying attention; you're just waiting for the right time to strike. You want people to underestimate your awareness, that way you'll make a greater impact when you take action.
