Here is an interesting low down on what people really think about you versus what you’re really like, based on your zodiac sign:

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, you are a pro at looking calm and collected on the outside. Someone looking at you might come to believe that you never run into emotional waters or get aggressive.

However, on the inside, you might not be as laid back. You are competitive at heart.

You are not someone to be messed with no matter how passive she can seem on the outside.
