Scorpio is perhaps the most complex and misunderstood zodiac sign. Scorpios are amazing people, strong-willed, and never afraid to go for what’s theirs. Many people are intrigued by Scorpios but most will never know the inner turmoil they deal with on a daily basis.
What’s problematic for them is that they are always battling between their heart and mind. They are definitely emotional people but they’re also heavily conscious of how those emotions can make them look. They want to be looked at as a soldier so they internalize a lot of their hurts and misfortunes.
Below you will read a list of 13 problems only true Scorpios understand and relate to, you will also find out why Scorpios generally get seen as “evil”.
1. Scorpio’s independence makes it really hard to ask for help and is mistaken for arrogance.
Scorpios are fiercely independent. They like to forge their own path in life and don’t like to ride on the coattails of others. A Scorpio won’t ask you for anything unless they absolutely need you and don’t have any means of doing it without your help. They typically hate asking for help because they see it as a sign of weakness.
Scorpios like to be the boss of their own life and live by the motto, “If you want it done right, you have to do it yourself.” And while many people might take this as a sign of arrogance, truth is, they’re not arrogant!
They just like doing things on their own and for themselves. To Scorpio, Needing help with a thing = you’re a failure.
2. Scorpios have lost friends over a group project because they can’t deal with other peoples’ ideas.
Being a fixed sign, Scorpios are known to be extremely stubborn about their beliefs. Unlike certain other zodiac signs, they do not easily waiver in their nature. This may actually occur as a negative side of being determined. Scorpios spend a lot of effort and time coming to their point of view on a subject.
Because they are so thorough and thoughtful, they feel their answers are correct and consider them to be the best possible view on the subject. They know they are right. They don’t see any reason to change that view. Naturally, it may not be easy to convince Scorpios about something if they believe otherwise.
3. Whenever Scorpios’ friends talk about Hogwarts, they always sort Scorpios in Slytherin.
Well, Slytherin house has always been portrayed as cunning and underhanded, sometimes downright evil. All the other Slytherins are portrayed as either outright bad. But as long as it helps Scorpios on their way to greatness, they don’t care.
Like so many famous Slytherins, Scorpios have an undeniable charm and magnetism that make them the ideal fit for the house of green and silver. Determined, smart, and passionate people, Scorpios would thrive around other ambitious and resourceful Slytherins who care about the same thing as they do: success.
4. Scorpio’s amazing memory ensures that every tiny failure, no matter how small or long ago, haunts them to this day.
Because of both the emotional depth of water and the fixed quality of Scorpio, they have the longest memory of all the signs. Success is Scorpio’s middle name. They don’t want failure and find this to be their biggest fear. People around them won’t notice this kind of trait from Scorpios because they are good at hiding their real feelings.
Usually, when a Scorpio fails, they will surely use their skills that are adapted to be able to move on and leave that certain situation behind them. But that doesn’t mean they can easily let go of that failure ( no matter how small it is). It keeps haunting them.
It’s very hard for Scorpios to leave past failures behind. On the other hand, that same good memory also means they’ve pretended to forget things so people don’t think they’re weird.
5. Scorpio has felt the strain of pretending to be happy for someone when they succeed.
Scorpios are quite arguably jealous and they will do everything to hide it. They are very ambitious and will do whatever they need to attain their goal. They also have a strong competitive characteristic to their personality that pushes them to strive for greatness.
So that they can be a bit envious and jealous of other people’s success. However, Scorpios can turn it into an inspiration of their own and then succeed. There’s nothing a Scorpio can’t do!
6. Scorpio’s default is brutal honesty and that’s not always okay. Apparently.
Scorpios are loyalists. A Scorpio will say things that everyone else is too scared to say. They are loyal to a fault, Scorpios just like the rest of us have bad things to say about everyone. The difference is they would rather say it to your face than behind your back. If someone has something bad to say about you, your Scorpio friend will never immerse in the conversation but rather walk away or defend you until they can’t speak.
Scorpio has firm opinions and thoughts. As a result, they can criticize impartially and sometimes leave a person with hurt feelings after saying unintentionally rude comments. They feel no need to “sugar coat” anything to prevent hurting someone’s feelings; after all, honesty is the best policy, right? Be aware that when they say things that sting, They are only being honest, which is a respectable feature.
Scorpios also command respect, which fits right along with their naturally blunt way of speaking. They’d often find themselves in situations where they would lose friends. Perhaps honest opinions were too much to handle. So if you can’t handle the truth, don’t get along with Scorpios.
7. Sometimes, Scorpio’s feelings don’t make a ton of sense.
Scorpio is complex and they are known to have extreme emotions and like the other water signs, these deep feelings are often hard to verbalize. Scorpio is an exceptionally emotional sign, hitting both the highs and the lows of emotions with scary regularity or sometimes, they can even express feelings that don’t even make sense.
By this emotionally complex personality, Scorpios usually have had to dial down their excitement about something because no one else seems as pumped about it as them.
8. Scorpio has a shit list comprised of people who insulted them or pissed them off exactly once, apparently.
There may be no one else who can hold a grudge better than a Scorpio. Scorpios have powerful memory and tend to remember well people’s remarks and behaviors. Especially for pain, and they can’t stand to let go of anything.
They will never forgive or forget when someone wrongs them, especially someone who betrays them and since they have immense patience, they can wait a long, long time before striking in revenge. Scorpios remember betrayal forever!
9. Scorpios are picky about who they befriend and mistaken as anti-social.
Scorpios can be quite private in ways and they often prefer to keep a smaller circle of friends. Prototypical Scorpios are not social butterflies and will rarely be the darlings of the social circuit. They can be silent on the outside but has a deep well of emotions within.
If you see a person at a party sitting in the corner quietly observing everything, he/she is probably a Scorpio rising. Not that he/she is antisocial; he/she just likes privacy even in a social setting. Yet the Scorpio isn’t an anti-social creature. They are merely socially selective.
Every Scorpio is looking to build a private tribe of people with whom they socialize in a free-flowing, secure, and unselfconscious way that the world-at-large never sees; over a lifetime, that tribe may only contain three, five, 10 people. You can never really know the Scorpio until you have observed them guard down in their chosen tribe and chosen atmosphere.
10. Scorpio’s self-image vacillates between “I’m the best” and “I’m the worst” with almost nothing in between.
Scorpios have the tendency to take everything to the extreme – the good and the bad. It can be very hard for their compromise. They are known for their intense and powerful natures. They are willful, proud, and calm with an electrifying undercurrent of seething intensity.
Scorpio does nothing in half measures and there is no “in-between.” An all-or-nothing attitude permeates their entire life. When fixed on something or someone, the scorpion perseveres. Scorpio never settles. Life is meant to be lived to the fullest or not at all.
11. Scorpios are characterized as tempestuous balls of emotions but you’re actually a very logical person.
Scorpio is a Water sign. Water signs think in terms of emotion. So that, many people characterized Scorpios as tempestuous balls of emotions. Matter of fact, Scorpios can set their emotions aside to think and they’re better at it than the other Water signs, and many decisions they make will be based on their logical mind.
They are logical thinkers and make great leaders, doctors, lawyers, scientists, detectives, and can excel in any career field that requires deep investigation. Scorpios are naturally curious, always add a “how” and “why” when telling a story. Scorpio tends to be logical at a detailed level.
They often sharpen their focus on the details, key meanings, and values in the subject that took their attention. Scorpios are supreme no-nonsense people. They totally decry hypocrisy in all its forms. They believe in seeing and assessing the truth of the situation.
12. Scorpios have worked really hard to reach some goals but immediately gotten bored the second they achieved it.
Scorpio never gives up, they are determined to reach their goal. But once they achieved their goal, they got bored! It’s somehow called “lonely at the top”.
13. Scorpio’s birthday either gets caught up in pre-Halloween madness or is roped in with Thanksgiving.
Halloween or pre-Thanksgiving birthday, for the most part, not many people enjoy it. The birthday cakes are always depressingly macabre, or a decent amount of people will forget about birthday because they’re caught up in the holiday, and sometimes received Halloween decorations as birthday presents, or Thanksgiving steals the birthday thunder? Those problems, Only Scorpios can relate to!
