Scorpios are fun, smart and sometimes strange to be around. I would know – I’m a Scorpio. But I also see a lot of people perceive my astrological sign as something bad. I guess there’s a rumor out there that we are vengeful and scary. 

While that’s not entirely wrong either, we do have some great qualities, just like any other astrological sign. 

Here are some things you should know about Scorpios.

Scorpios are Funny… In Their Own Way

Scorpios are naturally sarcastic and witty. I’d say we prefer dry humor over full-on jokes. Of course, some of our comments come off as mean sometimes because we can’t really turn it off. However, Scorpios have a great sense of humor and can be endlessly entertaining if in a good mood.

Scorpios Have Strong Opinions

Okay, so this might not be the best thing ever, but that’s who we are. Scorpios stand by their opinion and are not easily convinced otherwise. We don’t like being told that we are wrong. In fact, the more you do, the more convinced we’ll be that we are actually right. 

Scorpios are Independent 

Just like we don’t like being told what to think, we don’t like being told what to do. Scorpios live their life in their own way. We like to rely on ourselves and we own our choices. So, no matter what anyone says is right, we will do what we know is best for us. 

Scorpios are Emotional

You didn’t see that one coming, did you? Yes, we are emotional, maybe even more so than other signs of the Zodiac. However, no Scorpio will ever admit to that or show emotions to anyone. Okay, maybe the people in their closest circle. But even then, it will be rare. 

Scorpios Let Very Few People In 

Scorpios are well-known for only having a few close friends instead of a huge group of people. That’s true. Becoming friends with a Scorpio can take a really long time and they won’t easily let you in. And if you break their trust in any way, they will sever all ties to you. 

Scorpios Love Learning 

Scorpios are looking for passion in every area of their life. And when they find it, it becomes an obsession to them. So, you’ll often find a Scorpio learning something new or improving something they already know. 

Scorpios Are Motivated

As I already mentioned, we are looking for passion in everything. So, our career will likely be something that we are absolutely crazy about. And, you know, we get obsessed. This is why Scorpio is known for being one of the most determined and driven signs of the Zodiac.

Scorpios See The Best in People

Until proven otherwise, a Scorpio will always treat everyone as if they are a good person. Even if their instincts tell them that they are wrong, they will give the benefit of the doubt to anyone. 

Scorpios Can Be Weird

It’s not uncommon for Scorpios to have strange tastes in music, food or anything else. Scorpios can also act weird. This goofiness is interesting to other people, but they can also think it’s too strange and awkward. 

Scorpios Are Good Friends

When you become friends with a Scorpio, they will be there for you no matter what. We are great listeners, but we won’t meddle with our own opinions or experiences. What a Scorpio can give is an objective advice. 

All in all, Scorpios personality can vary based on numerous different factors. But these are some common traits that connect us all.
