The truth hurts.

Conflict and conflict-making situations are all around us and it’s not hard to find yourself in the middle of it. If you have what’s known as a high-conflict pattern of behavior, you tend to increase conflict rather than resolving or decreasing it.

If this sounds familiar, then chances are that this way of behaving will only increase rather than lessen. The more you seek (subconsciously or consciously) to flame the fire of conflict, the more normative it will feel until creating high-conflict situations becomes a way of life for you.

When you have a high-conflict personality type, you will act and think in very aggressive ways such as all-or-nothing thinking, out-of-control emotions, extreme reactions and behavior, and blaming other people for everything. When you’re a high-conflict person, everything is high drama and about you. You never keep your dissatisfaction to yourself, you never suck it up, and you don’t avoid drama, you stir it up until it takes over.

Having a high-conflict personality isn’t a personality disorder, though they do share three characteristics:

  1. They lack self-awareness, especially regarding how their behavior affects other people.
  2. They usually don’t change their behavior, even when they see the negative results of it.
  3. They project onto others the responsibility for problems in life or blame other unseen forces.

People with high-conflict personalities (HCP), unlike those with personality disorders, often become obsessed with a Target of Blame (usually someone close to them or someone in a position of authority) and will take aggressive action against that person, including lawsuits, complaints, gossiping about them and even in extreme cases, violence to get that person to go away or change their behavior so the HCP will stop feeling so threatened.

HCPs also try to get other people to be Negative Advocates to help in blaming the Target of Blame and enable the HCP to avoid looking at their own behavior in a critical light. Here are the zodiac signs with the worst personalities.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You've been known to be passive-aggressive with people you don't know if they do something that annoys you. If they take too long paying the cashier at the grocery store, you'll push your cart into their back a little, or if the drive-thru clerk called you "Ma'am," you'll "Ma'am" them right back. You rarely let things go if you feel you've not been treated in the way you should be treated. You take minor annoyances as personal attacks and you react in a negative way.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Compromise and flexibility seem impossible to you and you sometimes feel that you won't survive if things don't turn out exactly the way you want them to. You see conflict in terms of one simple solution (yours) and you rarely take the time to thoroughly look at the situation, look at things from someone else's point of view, or even consider other options rather than the one you came up with.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You're socially gifted but you tend to be rather controlling with your friends. People shouldn't feel that they are walking on eggshells around you and should feel comfortable enough to say what they need to say without inspiring your wrath. You and your friends need to feel that you can be your true selves with one another without causing a meltdown.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Your emotions are sometimes way out of proportion to whatever issue is being discussed. It's great that you get emotionally invested in certain issues but when you get overly emotional about your way of seeing things, it tends to catch people off-guard with your intense fear, anger, sadness, and sometimes even joy. It doesn't matter if it's in real life or comments on social media, there are times when you need to pull back from going full throttle with the overly passionate emotions.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You expect to be treated like a queen and when you're not, all hell breaks loose. There are going to be times when you're not going to be first in line or get into the VIP section. It's okay, you don't have to start a war just because you didn't get your favorite room when the hotel is overbooked. Be grateful for everything you have and be gracious even when things don't go your way.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You might not appear to lose control of your emotions but underneath that calm demeanor, you can be an emotional manipulator. You may not be aware of the power you have over others and how devastating it can be to them when you use their emotions for your own bidding. You don't like it when other people take advantage of you, so don't do it to other people, especially out of a feeling of spite and revenge.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You generally hate conflict but it you and a friend or loved one disagree on an issue (even a minor one), you've been known to immediately end your friendship. You'd rather not have a relationship with someone than feel that they're not on your side. Your conflict resolution style is to just end things before they get really ugly but it's not fair to the other person who doesn't get to explain their side of things.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You're one of the zodiac signs with the worst personalities because of your intense drive to control or dominate those closest to you. You never let go. You can be possessive to the extreme and you don't let go even when the other person feels like they're being strangled.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You never take responsibility for a problem — it's always somebody else's fault. You're able to rewrite the narrative so that you're the victim, not the perpetrator. You never see yourself as doing something wrong as you're able to throw the blame onto someone else. By never accepting responsibility for anything negative, you're able to build your self-esteem and self-worth but you're building them on a very shaky foundation.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

There are several places that you can't go to because you caused a scene there or did something awful and unpleasant. You've been able to spin it your head that it none of it was your fault, but if you think about it, it's kind of odd that you can't go to most of the businesses in your own neighborhood. Is just bad luck or are you maybe a little harsh when you feel the service you're getting isn't up to par?

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Most of the time you're totally chill, but there are times when you just lose it. If you're described as a hothead or someone with a hair-trigger temper, that's not something to be proud of. It means that you aren't in control of your emotions or your actions. You need to dial it back and try to have that chill attitude even when you're challenged.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

While you aren't really one of the zodiac signs with the worst personalities, you tend to associate with those who do. It's because you can be extremely passive and you kind of admire the HCP person's energy and passion. What you may not be aware of is that being around someone like that can be exhausting and can chip away at your self-esteem. It's probably best to put some distance between yourself and a high-conflict person so they don't make you a target for their aggression.
