The Negative Personality Traits Of The Gemini Zodiac Sign, According To Astrology

Born between the dates of May 21st to June 20th, the sign of the twins, Gemini, is often regarded as being the zodiac sign with a “split” personality. To many, it is believed that the Gemini personality is fun and outgoing, yet, in a second, they can switch to being aloof homebodies.

There is some truth to these Gemini traits. Even though Gemini is ruled by Mercury and prone to talking about things, there is also a mysterious side to them. It's a side we would think is more often to come from Scorpio.

But the Gemini zodiac sign has a very go-with-the-flow personality, and they always searching for the next adventure. Guided by the air, this zodiac sign is able to adapt to any situation and succeed.

While they are fast communicators, and have some of the most intelligent viewpoints, this can at times be outweighed by their negative personality traits. Here are the 5 personality traits of Gemini that can be off-putting to others.

1. Geminis can be sarcastic.

Geminis are the pros of verbal irony and sarcasm. Even in the most serious of situations, their wit and dry humor will be the first response from this sign.

The sarcasm can be annoying, especially if you’re seeking genuine advice from them. They may offer it, but not after first speaking in a way that makes you feel irritated or annoyed.

2. They can be flighty.

Geminis, like other air signs, hate to be tied down. As a result, they rarely seek commitment and would rather be single or alone to explore what life has to offer.

Even in committed friendships and relationships, Geminis will find themselves searching for different friends or even different partners, and won’t hesitate to leave if they find something they believe to be better than what they have.

With their carefree personality comes a penchant for impulsivity. They are quick to jump into situations without thinking of the consequences and making additional plans in the event things don’t work out.

Often, Geminis find themselves in trouble as a result, and will become moody if they can’t figure a way out of the situation. Ironically, this will also cause them to attempt to solve the problem in an impulsive way as well.

4. They can be materialistic.

Like the other air signs, Geminis are attracted to beauty, intelligence, and charm. However, this doesn’t always transfer to inner beauty.

Geminis assess what is beautiful or charming on the surface and pursue those things under their quest for freedom. This can often lead to casual hook-ups and acquaintances, which is often their preference.

5. A Gemini can get anxious from time to time.

Many Geminis have issues with anxiety. Due to their impulsive nature, they can find themselves in stressful situations that are difficult to handle. When this happens, they either shut down or lash out at those around them.

Even though Geminis have some negative personality traits, their positive attributes outweigh the negatives. If you’re a Gemini, you can avoid this side of yourself by making plans before your next spontaneous adventure, and remembering that everything on the surface isn’t golden.

Geminis may have their negative traits, but like all zodiac signs, they are also really good people.
