Why Are Gemini So Stubborn?

Gemini are so stubborn. Gemini zodiac signs are some of the most intellectual and versatile people you might meet.

Gemini aren’t exactly known for standing their ground. They aren't thought of as single-minded people. But the Twins have a dark side, and it's their will to stick to a decision. From ghosting someone they no longer like to refusing to change their habits, Gemini are more stubborn than most zodiac signs.

Why are Gemini so stubborn?

Gemini are intelligent, and they know it, so when they make a decision it sticks.

Gemini don’t stay angry for long; they are a very “forgive and forget” type of individual. But this means that people mistakenly think Gemini are pushovers and easily yield to others in conflict.

This cannot be more wrong, as Gemini, despite being unable to rage for a really long time, can be incredibly headstrong.

Their flighty nature might mask it, but Gemini can hold a grudge like no one’s business. Just because they don’t appear angry anymore, doesn’t mean that they have forgotten what you have done.

If you really piss them off, you will need to be the first to apologize, otherwise, Gemini will take your transgression to their, or your grave.

Like their secret double side, it might seem this stubbornness comes out of nowhere.

Because one minute you are laughing with a Gemini, you might’ve gone a little too far with a joke, and then bam, you are marked for life. A Gemini’s spontaneity, lightheartedness, and bubbliness masks a lot of their more impassioned emotions.

Geminis are born between May 22 and June 22; they belong to the air element along with their sign partners Libra and Aquarius.This dual sign is most commonly known for being flighty, impulsive, curious, and well, a little erratic.

Here's why Gemini are so stubborn, per astrology:

Gemini are so stubborn because they are smart.

Geminis are stubborn when it comes to speaking their mind. They always have something interesting to say, and they are constantly questioning and interrogating what people normally wouldn’t look twice at.

They always have ten books in one hand, eleven different projects, and twenty different documentaries going on in the background.

They know their stuff, and despite their forgetful, spacey nature, do not forget what they learn.

This makes Gemini charismatic and artistic personalities, such as Kanye West, Marilyn Monroe, and Angelina Jolie. Controversial, bold, yet game-changing, Gemini’s don’t like it when people second guess their expertise.

For example, Kanye West is a Gemini that is so stubborn. West has said and done some uh, one might say problematic stuff? But there is no denying the sheer confidence in which he says it. No matter one’s opinion on him, no one can argue that Kanye West is one of the most charismatic personalities that currently exist and that despite split opinions on his music and art, his genius is evident in every album he puts out.

So by god, don’t second-guess a Gemini’s intellect, because they will never live it down. Mostly because you might actually be in the wrong, but Geminis live in a world entirely constructed from their own smarts.

For you to challenge that you not only challenge their brain, you challenge the entire foundation of their existence.

Gemini are so stubborn because they hate authority.

The second a stubborn Gemini senses you are trying to control them, they will try to break away in the pettiest yet meticulous way possible. Individuals born under Gemini want to be free; they want to pursue what they want and go where the wind takes them.

This means that teachers, bosses, parents even have an incredibly hard time managing them because Gemini will fight to their last breath to make sure they can maintain their own autonomy.

This can be really refreshing for example, when your boss or professor really sucks. Gemini use their stubbornness to absolutely verbally eviscerate authority they despise, and watching them take a loser down a peg can be really cathartic for you.

This is less fun when they do this to you know, their landlord, or your squad when you guys are trying to make group plans.

Because the Twins will stick to their guns, and this is what makes Gemini so stubborn ; they think normal rules in the world do not apply to them. This gives them a false sense of invincibility, and they are too stubborn to notice anything wrong with that!

So they are a little hard to count on when you and your friends find yourselves stranded in the middle of nowhere, and need a voice of reason to direct you guys to safety.

Gemini are especially hard to count on when they might not make rent this month because of their impulsive purchases, and their multiple missed calls from their landlord.

Regardless, it is hard to fault the Gemini too much; their agency is really important to them, and sometimes being able to be your own person is worth defending to the near-death. Some can only dream to have the autonomy Gemini fight for.

Why are Gemini are so stubborn? Because their focus is on themselves.

They are the life of the party, so don’t try to take the spotlight away from them.

The Gemini is a great friend because they are constantly introducing you to new things: almost everything is within their comfort zone, so they are totally willing to explore crazy and out of the box ideas.

This, of course, contributes to their big, vibrant personalities. They know how to liven up every social situation, and know exactly where the fun is.

They always know someone who knows someone who can get you and your friends straight to where the best times are.

But then the second their authority is doubted: for example, maybe you guys want to stay inside for once, or want to listen to the suggestion of someone else (a potential interloper in the friend group) who suggested something cool to do during the weekend, the Gemini will lose it.

To give them credit, the Gemini friend is probably right: due to their curious and knowledgeable nature, they probably do know where exactly to go to create the best and the most memories.

But sometimes their intensity is a little hard to keep up with. So the second you lose interest in the Gemini’s performance, they will do what it takes to win it back.

They are stubborn when it comes to having fun. Only they know what the coolest spots are, only they know who are the good and bad people to associate with. And they will not let you forget it.
