People often misunderstand an Aries, and for a good reason. With their intensity, strength, passion and other complexities, pinning down an Aries can be a difficult challenge.

But don’t judge these guys harshly, they have a lot more to offer than we can see. You just need to give them a chance to show you who you are.

First off, meeting one is likely to be a life-changing experience. Odds are that you will never forget the experience.

And also, here are 9 things you should know about an Aries.

1. They Like Being Understood

Not shocking, considering that many people have it all wrong when it comes to Aries folk. If you can understand an Aries, or make it seem like you do, you will make them very comfortable around you. With so many people judging them and criticizing them, these people really appreciate people who “get them.”

2. Sensitivity

Despite their obvious strength, Aries guys are pretty sensitive. They can overthink minor things, and they tend to think deeply about things to the point of making themselves insecure.

Also, it might seem like they are making rash decisions but in reality they think things through and examine every situation from all possible angels before making a final decision.

3. Strength And Independence

An Aries loves the challenge of bettering themselves, which means they have learned to be strong and independent. They can work with others, but they like doing things their own way. So, understand them if you cannot match up to the energy around them.

4. They’re Not Cruel

An Aries would never intentionally hurt another person, even when wronged. In fact, when choosing between them and other people hurting, they prefer to bear the pain themselves.

They care about the feelings of others, and will often hide their feelings for the sake of other people. They will also not waste an opportunity to show their love to others when necessary.

5. They Are Smart

One of the reasons many people find an Aries intimidating is that they are usually very smart. This can make people insecure around them, especially when they are a lot more accomplished than you are.

With their obvious dominance over things, they can make you look back at your life and feel unfit to be around them. But know that they don’t look down upon anyone based on such issues. So, if they are good to you, focus on that.

6. Brutal Honesty

And why wouldn’t they be? They wear their hearts on their sleeves. What you see in an Aries is what’s on the inside. There are no two sides to people of this Zodiac sign.

7. Commitment

An Aries will take work and career very seriously, and they are not afraid of any such commitments. They want what they do to make a difference in this world. That is also why they will go after anything that offers the promise of success. It’s also why they are so keen on bettering themselves because they understand there is no better way to use their time.

8. Generosity

Even when they do amazing things for you, people of this zodiac sign will not expect compliments for their effort. They are pretty generous with compliments themselves, however. That’s both ironic and endearing. They want those around them to feel better about themselves.

9. They Remember How You Made Them Feel

An Aries always remembers what you made them feel, even the little things. This can work to your favor or against you based on what actually happened. So, be good to an Aries, and you can bet that they won’t forget it.

There you go. An Aries might seem complicated, but that’s hardly the truth. Deep down, there is nothing intimidating and complicated about people born under this star sign. I think that’s clear from what we’ve just seen.
