Bet you think this post is about you.

We all have at least one person in our lives who think that they are everything and that the world revolves around them. They can be completely self-centered in a way that’s kind of charmingly obnoxious. Heck, even their horoscope can indicate the same.

When someone has a huge amount of self-importance and confidence, it can sometimes be easier to just agree with them. If they think so highly of themselves, they must be great.

The problem with people who are so full of themselves and conceited is that being that way takes up a lot of their time and interest and if you're around them, you can feel as if you almost don’t exist. You want to be able to share what’s going on in your life or get some guidance for your problems, but your arrogant friend is so self-absorbed that they don’t even ask about you.

Some self-centered people are savvy enough to know that they must occasionally show some interest in other people. You can tell it pains them to stop talking about themselves for a minute and actually ask you how you’re doing. But if they talked non-stop about themselves they’d look like a jerk which wouldn't play well with their self-image. It’s fun when they try to direct the conversation to you.

“Enough about me. What do you think about me?”

Unless you’re the ruler of a kingdom, you shouldn't be 100 percent concerned with yourself.

Naturally, when it comes to being completely self-centered, some zodiac signs are more self-absorbed than others. Loving yourself, cherishing your strengths, and celebrating your victories are all good things, but don’t do them to the exclusion of others. Everyone is worthy of attention and being allowed to shine. If you’re always the sun, you’ll forever shut out someone else’s shine.

Here are the most arrogant zodiac signs, ranked from most to least.

1. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Well, it's no surprise that Leos are at the top of the list. Sure, they're full of themselves, self-absorbed, and sometimes downright conceited but it's usually justified. If they weren't the charismatic beings that they are, they wouldn't have so many followers, friends, and supporters.

Leo's ego is so big it can actually cause some bumps in the road of their success. Once they've got an idea in their head, it's hard to get them to change their mind; they think they're right about everything, even things that relate to other people. The biggest factor that makes them so full of themselves is their arrogance; they don't just think they're all that, they know it.

2. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

One of the reasons that Sagittarius wants to see the world is because they're convinced it revolves around them. Sags are a charming, inquisitive, and optimistic; however, the difficulty comes in the fact that they think their delightfulness should make up for their not-so-attractive qualities like self-centeredness and vanity.

They think everyone should use them as an example and they don't understand when people deviate. A Sagittarius individual is perfectly happy pontificating their theories (on everything) because they're sure everyone around them is as entranced with them as they are themselves.

3. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Tauruses don't believe in compromise. Why should they? They believe they're always right. They're self-indulgent to the point where they're completely oblivious to the needs and feelings of other people.

A Taurus's problems trump everyone else's and should always be dealt with first, and if that means other people's problems go unattended, that's the way it is. Taurus individuals can be so self-absorbed that they can come off as callous and unfeeling to other people. They do care, it's just that they're at the top of the list.

4. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

It's very difficult for an Aries to take another person into consideration. It's not that they don't care, it's that they only have so much bandwidth to deal with emotions and things that they come off as insensitive. They're too busy to care about other people and they're not great at sensing when another person is in need.

If asked directly for help, Aries is right there, but you do have to spell it out for them as they're not the most intuitive sign in the book. If you put Aries' impatience together with their self-serving attitude, you can see why they might come off as one of the most arrogant zodiac signs.

5. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

While no one is more giving to the earth and its peoples, Aquarius can be surprisingly self-absorbed. They can't deal with other people's emotions, but lord help you if you cause them any pain and don't immediately try to help them — they can be huge babies. They're good listeners but so stubborn that it can be pointless to try to change their mind once it's been made.

If they get a creative burst and are working on something that's important to them, good luck trying to get them to listen to you or help you in any way. What they're doing is the most important thing, even if what you're doing is just as prestigious or beneficial.

6. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos are know-it-alls and perfectionists, so it's hardly surprising that they can be incredibly conceited. They know they're right and they're not about to hide it; they want the world to know how brilliant, creative, and awesome they are.

On the other hand, the traits that make them self-centered can turn and Virgo can beat themselves up for not being perfect enough or not knowing everything. It can be tricky for Virgo. Luckily, no matter how self-absorbed and full of themselves Virgo gets, they'll always do whatever they can to help somebody out or to fix a problem.

7. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios aren't the most self-centered of the zodiac signs unless they feel slighted or betrayed; then, a whole new side to them emerges. When you cause a Scorpio to lose their trust in you, you set off a powder keg of vengeance and repercussions.

They hold a grudge like no one else and feel it's their duty to right a wrong perpetrated against them. If their partner breaks up with them out of the blue or a business partner cheats them, they'll become obsessed with teaching that person a lesson and/or having their revenge.

8. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

As with lots of things, Gemini is equal parts selfish and self-centered. Their self-centered attitude usually comes out with their conversation because they love talking about themselves and they love hearing people talk about them (in positive ways).

The good thing is that they have a sense of humor about themselves, so when they're being self-indulgent, they don't take it too seriously. They can laugh at their own expense and can take a joke. They know they're flawed, they just know what they're good at and that there's no reason to deny it.

9. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras are self-centered in the way that they are always trying to improve and are never happy with the status quo. They know they have some admirable qualities but there's always room for improvement, and when you stop growing, you might as well be dead.

They're great at seeing things from all perspectives, not just their own, and they really try to consider other people and the effects that their decisions will have on them. Libras can be self-indulgent but that's really more about self-care.

10. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces is too selfless to be too self-centered. In fact, Pisces could actually be a little more self-centered for self-preservation if nothing else. They are easily influenced and very forgiving, so they tend to put others first most of the time.

They're very intuitive and that helps to make them know exactly what someone else needs. Pisces are compassionate, kind, and rarely (if others) put themselves first. They'd never do anything that would hurt another, even if they themselves benefited from it.

11. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns are too wise and practical to be full of themselves. They understand how the world works and don't believe that their needs are more important than those of others.

They may put too much focus on their work and their goals and their drive may be mistaken for self-centeredness. Capricorns want to get things done and they want everyone to benefit from them, not just themselves. It's all about the greater good with Capricorns.

12. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers may be emotional but they don't think that their feelings are more important than anyone else's. Cancers are a very loving and protective sign and they tend to put other people's needs above their own.

When they do something for someone else's good, they don't expect anything in return. There's no quid pro quo with them — they don't do things so that they'll be praised and rewarded, they do them because they're the right things to do and they'll make life better for someone else.
