For Capricorns, people either love or hate you. They tend to suffer from resting b**** face, so there's a misconception at the start. And as nice as the Capricorn personality can be, for people close to this zodiac sign, everyone knows there's some truth to that RBF.

The fact is that the Capricorn zodiac sign, born of the 10th House, has additional negative personality traits that are usually hidden from the world.

If you know a Capricorn, they're either your best friend or someone you can't stand to be around. There are even a few who are both at the same time. It takes a lot to put up with them.

Here are 5 personality traits of Capricorn that can be off-putting to others.

1. Capricorns never forgive.

Caps are notoriously unforgiving. They can hold a grudge longer than most people can hold onto a job. They can patch things up and be civil, but there's no going back to how things used to be once they've gone sour.

No amount of apologizing or trying to right your wrongs will restore your friendship back to where it was 100 percent. It sounds intense, but Capricorns are very guarded people. If they find out you're capable of hurting them, they won't let you get close enough to do it again. 

2. They can be a bit of a know-it-all.

It's not that Capricorns think they're better or smarter than you, they just think they're better and smarter than everyone. The people around Capricorns usually go to them for advice since they're known to knowledge, which can boost their egos.

A Capricorn will do their best to retain some self-control when it comes to blurting out random facts or correcting people, but don't count on it.

3. They can also act condescending.

If you don't know something they know, they can be a bit condescending. It can get even worse when it comes to things they're super-passionate about.

Say something that's not true about a Capricorn's favorite show, movie or artist, and they will school you like you've never been schooled. 

4. Capricorns have pessimistic personality traits.

It doesn't matter what the situation is — Capricorns will always expect the worse, even when it comes to small stuff. For example, every time they go to Starbucks, Capricorn expects the barista to pronounce their name wrong, because they always do. So, they don't even give their real name anymore.

It's a horrible habit, but what can they do? Hope for the best and then get let down? As if.

5. They one of the most skeptical zodiac signs.

Capricorns won't believe something just because someone says it's real. Like Virgo, they have a tendency to always research points other people make, because proving them wrong brings them great joy.

With their skepticism, they not only prove that you were wrong, but that they were right and saw through your nonsense.
