What EVERYBODY Gets Wrong About You, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

why you're misunderstood
Zodiac, Self

They don't know you at all.

We think that we’re an open book and that we are easily understandable, but the opposite seems to be true. People make assumptions about us that are completely off-base or their first impressions of us are beyond wrong and ill-informed.

People tend to generalize about others that they don’t know that well. They might think you’re snotty because you grew up in an upscale area. What they don’t know is that your parents struggled to keep your family afloat which makes you grateful for almost everything.

If someone had a girlfriend that looked similar to you, they may assume that your personalities are the same, too. We all have expectations of people, and sometimes these expectations have very little to do with the person but with our own experiences, histories, and backgrounds. It’s nearly impossible not to look at people with a neutral eye.

But when people make assumptions about us, it puts us at a disadvantage. How can you be your authentic self when others are loading you down with a bunch of preconceived notions that have very little to do with you?

It can take a lot of effort to change someone’s mind when they’ve already decided they know exactly who you are.

People can be judgmental — it’s just the way they’re wired which can make it frustrating when you want them to see you without judgment and prejudice. Physical characteristics can also give people false ideas about us. People who have green eyes are jealous, someone with red hair probably has a hot temper, and everyone knows what long fingers on a man mean.

When you’re talking about the zodiac signs, there are a lot of traits that go with each sign, but that doesn't mean every individual born under that sign has them. Here’s why you're misunderstood and what people get wrong about you.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

People tend to think you're mean. You don't mean to be unkind but you have very little patience and tend to be blunt. When you say what's on your mind it comes across as harsh and unforgiving. If someone isn't going at the speed you'd like them to, you let them know it whether it's by rolling your eyes or doing a dramatic sigh. You're not mean but your self-centered attitude can make you appear to be an assh*le.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

People think that because you're nice, you can be easily taken advantage of. Oh man, they couldn't be more off-base. Just because you have good manners and are warm and kind towards others, it doesn't mean you're a pushover — quite the opposite, in fact. Good luck to the person who tries to put one over you for they're not going to enjoy your wrath when it comes down on their head.

People tend to believe that you never get lonely since you're always the life of every party. But there are times when you need to be by yourself and times when you socialize. And the truth is that it doesn't matter if you're in a crowd or by yourself, you can feel lonely. You tend to cover your loneliness up and you don't talk about it except to your closest friends, but you definitely have your lonely moments.

People think that you overreact to everything. You're very emotional but that doesn't mean that you are constantly in tears or putting your fist through the wall in anger. You have your chill moments and you have times where you put your feelings to the side so that you're there for someone else. It's not all about you and you know this very well.

People think that you're lazy; however, you're constantly working, you just make it look effortless. You like to chill and relax and that's okay because you've earned it.

People think that you never feel insecure and that you're always 100 percent confident in everything you do. But the reality is, you have your moments of self-doubt and your own self-esteem issues. You just try to deal with them on your own because you feel people might think less of you if they saw your vulnerability. But your softer side is what makes you loveable, so stop trying to hide it.

People think that you never have any anxiety. While you may not have much social anxiety, you still get anxious. Lots of things make you uncomfortable, like when people try to control you or you're forced to put down roots. You have the image of someone without a care in the world but that's not accurate. You've got lots of cares, you just don't let them take away your happiness.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

People think you're serious and that you don't have any sense of humor. Just because you can be focused and a hard worker it doesn't mean that you're not fun and funny. Your sly sense of humor manages to make most people laugh their asses off. You can be serious but that's not all that you are — you're hilarious, unique, social, smart, determined, and know how to have a good time like anyone.

People think that you're kind of wishy-washy because you're so accepting of people. However, if you see something that you feel isn't fair or is unjust, you won't just take it. You'll fight for those without a voice and you won't back down until a change has been made and justice has been served. You're an advocate when it matters the most.

People tend to think that you aren't passionate about anything or anyone. This is just not true, you just funnel your passion in your art and other creative projects. When you've thought of the perfect line for a song or the exact paint color combination for the deep blue of the ocean, you're extremely passionate. No one better get in your way when you're feeling inspired.
