how you're a hypocrite
Buzz, Self

You say one thing and do another.

A hypocrite is someone who acts one way but is really another way; they’re deceitful, two-faced, and deceivers.

Now, no one is completely honest all the time, no matter how they may try. There are times when it’s more important to fit in than cause a scene.

Perhaps you’re a bridesmaid and you’re called upon to make a toast for the bride and groom. The problem is, you think that they’re a terrible match and you doubt that the marriage will last a year, but you’re not going to say that in your toast.

Instead, you’re going to tell a funny anecdote about the bride and then wish them well. Yes, you’re being a hypocrite but not out of maliciousness or the need to manipulate; you’re being fake because in that instance it’s a kindness not to make a scene, and it also goes along with the social cues that should be followed at a wedding.

Not every instance of hypocritical behavior is justified; most of the time, it’s not a good way to be. If you constantly give lip service to something you don’t believe in, then how can you ever be trusted?

If you always pretend to be something you’re not, how can people ever really get to know the real you? No one should be an impostor in their own life. You don’t want to be thought of as a poser, a pretender or a phony.

It’s best if you can be as truthful as possible and have your actions match your words. You might think that it’s okay to be a hypocrite if it advances your career and gets you in with the right people, or perhaps it’s okay if you want to ingratiate yourself with your partner’s family so that they’ll think well of you.

We all have reasons for our less than honorable behaviors. But here’s how you’re a hypocrite, based on your zodiac sign.

 

 

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You like to think of yourself as being very thoughtful and sensitive regarding other people's feelings, and yet, when you feel the need to tell someone the cold, harsh truth, you don't hold back. Where's that compassion when you're reading someone the riot act?

You're extremely stubborn but you tend to judge others when they're rigid and inflexible. You won't compromise an inch and yet you are surprised when someone won't bend to your will. You have a double-standard and it's hypocritical.

You're charming so you think it's okay to be fake when it's in a social situation. You'll be very pleasant and gracious to someone's face and then talk crap about them behind their back. No one is saying you need to be 100 percent truthful, but you cross the line when it comes to being a poser and a phony.

You demand that your friends listen to your problems all the time, but when it comes to their problems, you're too busy or can't be bothered. It's a give and take, not take, take, and take some more without giving anything back.

You love to give orders and direct people but the minute somebody tells you what to do, you blow up. You don't like to be talked down to, so don't be so patronizing with others. You're not the ruler of the Universe.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You're quick to point out the flaws of others but act as if you're being attacked if someone says something critical to you. You can't play the victim if you're always on the attack. We're all imperfect and that's okay.

You hate it when people complain because it makes you so uncomfortable, and yet, you love to complain. You're always able to find some problem or a slight that somebody did that you can go on and on about. If you don't like to hear people whining and complaining, think about how they feel listening to you.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You think of yourself as a good person with a strong moral code, and for the most part, you are... unless someone lies or angers you. A good person can forgive those who wrong them, not make an intense plan of revenge. Your grudges eat at you and cause that strong moral foundation that you have to crumble.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You'd rather pretend to know the answer rather than admit that you're wrong. Not only is that hypocritical, it's problematic because while you're trying to fake your way through a conversation, it's clear that you're speaking nonsense. It would be so much better to ask questions and come clean about what you do and don't know.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You want people to share their darkest secrets with you and yet you have no intention of revealing yours. When people confide in you, it makes you feel powerful and as if you have some leverage over them. It's unfair to others when you refuse to open up and it makes them think that you're hiding something major.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You like everybody and you encourage them to be their true, weird selves... and then you judge them for it. That's just not nice. If someone is going to be their true selves, they need to feel that they're in a safe place but your judgment makes it a very unsafe and untrustworthy space.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You say that you don't need to be a leader and that you're happy to be a follower, but then you end up resenting the people who try to lead you. You don't have to be a follower or a leader, you just have to be comfortable with who you are and not find things to be negative about.
