Quick! Think of the first 3 words that come to your mind when you think of Scorpio.
Passionate, strong-willed, and determined OR obsessive, uncompromising, and stubborn?
Technically, passionate and obsessive, strong-willed and uncompromising, and determined and stubborn can be considered as synonyms for one and other, but when being used to describe someone, these words have different connotations. Someone who is a Scorpio would probably be more likely to use the first set of words to describe him or herself and other Scorpios. On the other hand, someone of a different sign would likely choose the second set.
Scorpios are almost always considered to be the most misunderstood sign of the entire zodiac. This is partly the fault of the Scorpio because he or she likes being mysterious and does not usually give out to much information regarding who he or she is on the inside. For this very reason, Scorpios are not easy for other signs to figure out. Therefore, other signs kind of have no other choice but to assume things about Scorpio that are not always true. In fact, most of the characteristics others associate with Scorpios are not true to every extent. Sure, we can be obsessive, uncompromising, and stubborn at times, but it is usually for a good reason.
Obsessive is used a lot when describing a Scorpio in love. Other signs may see Scorpios as being obsessed with their partner when in reality Scorpios just have a tendency to come off strong when in love because of how strong their feelings can become for a certain person. Scorpios are also extremely protective when it comes to their loved ones, adding to the feeling of them being obsessive.
Uncompromising and stubborn are two other words that would likely come up when another sign is trying to describe a Scorpio. Scorpio is a fixed sign and this can often come off as being closed-minded. In actuality, once a Scorpio has his or her mind set on something, he or she will stop at nothing to get it. Usually, Scorpios use this trait in a positive way. They are not using it just to seek revenge, but instead to accomplish their goals and better themselves.
As a whole, Scorpios are so much more than what meets the eye. The first impression of a Scorpio is not always who they truly are. This should not be mistaken for Scorpios being fake, but instead, other signs should realize that it just takes more time for Scorpios to let anyone see them for who they are on the inside. If you are one of the lucky people who has been let in by a Scorpio, you should know that it took a lot of courage for that Scorpio to do so and to open up to you. It is definitely not something that should be taken for granted because it is not something that happens very often.
I challenge anyone who is of another sign to try and see Scorpios in another light than they may have in the past. However, don’t beat yourself up too much if you can’t figure us out, it is not a job for the weak.
