Virgo Characteristics, Traits and Personality

The Virgo characteristics include the important fact that they are very discriminating but they are not always as prudish as they sometimes appear to be and as much as people believe they are.

During the ancient times, the woman who was no man's property was known as a Virgin, as she has the right to simply just say “no”, but now in today's time, Virgo's are known to people as those who are extremely discriminating, and this especially so when it is the subject of personal desire. However, when Virgo thinks she is ready to say “yes”, her passion will be everything except prudish.


Virgo is one of the most alert Zodiac signs. They know when there is something wrong with their environment, a situation or an individual. This is the reason why they make such good critics as they are natural, and this is one of their Virgo characteristics that people love about them. The mental process of a Virgo individual might not be as creative as some others, but there aren't many other zodiac signs that have sharp thinking abilities like Virgo's have. Virgo's have the ability to easily distinguish good from bad and to tell the difference between right and wrong. They are known to be “clean freaks” and everything must be spic and span and in top shape, but don't be surprised if they have a hidden messy closet.

Something a Virgo might say that represents their Virgo characteristics very well is “perfect is almost good enough”. A Virgo is very employable because of this trait they sport, but they might be fussy about the kind of work they do. It would help though, for you to be a little less critical and also less judgmental. They also tend to set limits on a certain subject before it actually happens, which can sometimes be a problem. If they set their limits too high they expect too much of themselves and are disappointed if they are unable to meet those expectations.

When it comes to the Virgo characteristics, their greatest strength would be that they have an ability to focus all of their attention on one subject, where as their weakness would be that their need for utmost perfection and the fact that they often don't settle for anything less than perfection tends to sometimes get in the way of them enjoying themselves. This happens in most cases and this is the reason why you will find that a Virgo will be up doing something, rather than sitting down with company and having a conversation.

Zodiac signs tell a lot about people, and they are normally 99% accurate. Virgo's element is earth, their sixth house is work, and their key planet is Mercury. Other than being the perfectionist, a Virgo is a wonderful, loyal friend to have. An impatient friend might find their traits annoying, but a true friend will stand by them and not worry about petty things like the way they choose to make up their bed in the morning, even if it does take them twenty minutes!
