One of the most difficult things for human beings to do seems to be handling confrontation, whether they are being confronted or doing the confronting. People have a very hard time dealing with one-on-one, in-your-face confrontation, and to combat this feeling, many avoid the awfulness of the truth by acting overly sweet and kind.

The message being, "How can you hurt me when I'm so sweet to you?" It's a defense, and many of us do it. When we don't want to be told what to do, instead of going to battle for it, we slip into the old pattern of getting what we want through manipulation. And really, how easy is it to tell someone to go to hell after they've just told us how handsome we are? That's the manipulation and "kill them with kindness" attitude I'm talking about.

And who are the zodiac signs who kill their enemies with kindness? Depending on your personality traits determined by astrology, it shouldn't be too hard to tell.

But when dealing with someone you might consider an enemy, it's crucial to how you play your cards around them. You don't want your enemy to come at you, but you also want to manipulate them to perhaps... never return?

One great way to deter an enemy is by letting them feel you are perfectly fine with everything they do and that you are in acceptance of them. This kind of kindness will certainly render your enemy futile and irrelevant.

"Kill them with kindness," they say, and for some, that's the strongest route for defense. Why counter-attack? You could get hurt! Nobody wants that, so instead of showing up your enemy and perhaps getting slammed for your efforts, why not just flatter them into submission? Human beings are pure ego, so it should be easy enough.

These 6 zodiac signs have the personality traits to win their haters over every time. 

1. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

When you are as naturally resentful as you are, Capricorn, it's only fair for you, in your mind, to try and get what you want with kindness. Say for instance someone has what you want; you don't just want that "thing," you want the person who has that thing dead, which is truly abysmal thinking.

Being that murder is a tad uncool and has such nasty consequences, you decide to sweet talk your way into their hearts, for the purpose of acquiring what you want from them. You're not a thief, just a really, really good manipulator.

2. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You are incapable of kindness, but very capable of BSing someone to death. You're so naturally insincere that people are flabbergasted by you, which works for you, ironically. Because you've never committed to one single idea since you were born, people automatically figure that if you've even shown the slightest amount of interest, you must be sincere.

You don't kill your enemies with kindness, you kill them with silence, which can be take as kindness to the right kind of moron. Truth is, you kill with kindness because you can't find the right words to tell a person what you really think.

3. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

If only you had the nerve to actually tell the truth, maybe even once in your life. If you could only just speak honestly instead of the unending barrage of lies that filter through your lips on a daily basis, maybe we'd believe you when you sugarcoat everything you tell us.

Libra, we see you, we have your number. Don't even bother sweet talking us; we know you too well for this kind of patronizing behavior. You kill your enemies with kindness because you are way too scared to deal with the reality of relating to others.

4. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You are royalty in this department, as no other sign is as capable of telling outright lies as you, Cancer. You have no intention of letting down that "I'm a great and kind person" act, and should you have to deal with someone you don't like, you simply pour sugar all over them, letting them feel they are special, rather than the sniveling piece of garbage you know they are.

You are obvious in your ways and your sticky sweet flattery usually just turns people so far off of you that they end up running for their lives. Score!

5. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

At least when you kill us with kindness, you let us know it's just an act. And chances are, we're down for that just because you lay it on, which its laughable, and we find your antics to be entertaining and humorous.

Nobody on earth takes you seriously, Scorpio, which is probably why you have to thrust your bad attitude around all the time. When we don't accept the bad attitude, you're smart enough to lay on the honey, because we are as stupid as we look.

6. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Oh, without a doubt, it's you, Aries. You blow both hot and cold, but when it comes to self-preservation, if you get a feel for your enemy and you come to think they could be flattered into shutting up, that's the way you'll approach it them.

You have always had a way with words and you have learned to finesse those words into some major flattery. Kindness comes naturally to you, as naturally as does war, and you will fight, even if your weapon of choice is flattery and false kindness.
