Scorpio Characteristics, Traits and Personality

Office settings that require a yes man don't fit well with Scorpio characteristics.

Of all the zodiac signs, this one has the most direct personality. When asked for an opinion, the Scorpio personality feels like the boss really wants to know what they think and is often surprised to find that isn't necessarily the case. The Scorpio characteristics don't allow them to mince words or sugar coat their assessment of the situation. They analyze everything carefully before speaking but fail to deliver their beliefs gently.


Some smart bosses accept the Scorpio's assessment of a situation, because the boss knows they have a keen intuitive grasp of situations and more often than not are correct.

Employers also know the Scorpio characteristics include fierce loyalty to those that treat them fairly. The Scorpio is one of the most loyal of the Zodiac signs and backs that loyalty with both words and actions, but you have to earn their respect. The Scorpio employee never needs someone to tell them to complete a task. They're very self-sufficient and often complete the work of others simply to get the job completed.

If you work for a Scorpio, you'll either love or hate these characteristics. If you work hard and do a great job for a Scorpio, you'll know that when they offer praise, it's sincere. Don't even think of crossing them. They respect someone that states their beliefs and has facts to back it, but have no use for a sneaky backstabbing individual. There's no room in the Scorpio's life for petty gossip. There's always too much to do and they believe it's a waste of time.

If you have a Scorpio as a friend, you have a very loyal friend indeed. However, don't run to him looking for sympathy if you have a problem. That is, unless you first tell them you don't want a solution, just words of kindness or condolence. The Scorpio will sympathize but secretly looks for a way to insert their solution into the conversation. It might help if you listen. The Scorpio characteristics of keen insight and acute mental focus often find offbeat solutions to problems that others overlook.

You might think that the Scorpio is an uncaring individual because of their tough exterior and direct manner. This is simply not true. Emotions run deep in the Scorpio personality and often they can't express them openly or choose not to do so. If they love you, they love you deeply but if you cross them, they keep score. The emotionally wounded Scorpio either leaves your life forever or finds a way to settle an emotional injury. The Scorpio retaliation is one of the worse of any of the Zodiac signs. It leaves the object of his anger devastated with an often well thought out plan for revenge. Don't ever let that cool exterior fool you, the Scorpio emotions run deep and strong. If they're angry, they leave a path of carnage.

The Scorpio characteristics include intelligence, isolationism, fierce independent thinking and buried intense emotionalism. If you have a Scorpio as a friend or lover, don't expect to pull the wool over their eyes. Those piercing eyes can see right through you. If you're lucky enough to get close to this more introverted personality of the Zodiac signs, you'll find a true friend that helps move mountains when it's necessary to solve your problems.
