Capricorn Personality, Traits and Characteristics

What do we know about the typical Capricorn Personality?

When looking at the Capricorn sign, you see a sea-goat or a mountain goat with the tail of a fish. What does this tell you about the Capricorn personality? The fish tail allows all Capricorns to ascend to the heights where they need to be. They know how deep the water can get, but they will make sure that they swim there if they are forced to.

The Capricorns understand that the less you have, the more you have. They appreciate what they have and will not wish for more.


Capricorns become wise from a very early stage. Since they carry around so much baggage, this is the one sign out of all zodiac signs that people would find themselves leaning on. We all look for a little comfort in our lives when things seem troubled, and most of the time it is the Capricorn that absorbs our bad energies and makes us feel better. This Goat understands how life works, and this is thanks to being wary of trying to rely on other people for help. The Capricorn is born at the peak of its life and from there it is only downhill. These individuals understand what power is and they know who to strike at in this world to get further, but they simply don't care. They go on with it, ignoring a lot of things.

The Capricorn personality wants pleasures to enjoy, and these Goats also want to enjoy the epicurean delights in life. The Goat is used to denying itself gratification for quite some time in its life, but the second it achieves a goal the whole world will know. Once the Capricorn is at work, sensual distractions and temptations will not distract it. Compared to other zodiac signs, the Capricorn personality is organized. It knows exactly what to hand over to those more inferior individuals, but it also knows what to hold on to for itself.

The Capricorn serves its time in society and their success is not there to gratify themselves. It is simply there for others to see and for others to note. The Goat takes their position very seriously. The Capricorn represents itself in a dandyish way when it comes to dressing. They like to remain unaffected, elegant and casual. They are unmoved by what you may think of the way they dress.

The Goat refuses to pay attention to their psychological blueprint. If they do find themselves in therapy they would rather prefer to have a behaviorist or functionalist approach rather than going into some kind of deep analysis of what makes them tick. They prefer to fix other things rather than digging into the past. They refuse to bring up situations that are long gone and over, simply because they are powerless to make any changes to them.

Another thing that should be added to the Capricorn personality is the fact that this Goat only believes in things that can be seen. There is not much patience when it comes to entertaining. Although these Goats live their lives the wrong way round, once they rid themselves of all the burdens they are clearer and freer to start their lives.
