When most people consider the word “intimidating”, they picture a person who is big, tough and outwardly scary. Intimidation comes in many forms, however. Often, the most intimidating person in the room isn’t necessarily the largest or the most outspoken. It might be their outgoing energy or their larger than life presence that makes them intimidating. It might be their extreme passion or penchant for success that does the trick. Whatever it is, each sign of the zodiac has some trait that manages to intimidate the others. What’s yours?
Virgo. Virgos are very particular. They have the need to do everything and to do it better than everyone else, which can definitely be intimidating to the more relaxed, easygoing signs. If you attempt to out-perform a virgo, you are going to have a very bad time. They will shut you down and if they feel threatened they will probably be pretty severe about it.
Taurus. There is a reason the Taurus is the sign of the bull. You are stubborn and no one wants to get charged by the likes of you. You’re set in your ways and you will run down anyone who tries to mess with you or someone you love. Those horns of yours aren’t just for show!
Gemini. Gemini, you have a knack of totally surprising people. You always manage to do the unexpected and this is what intimidates people about you. They never know what they’re going to get and they have to be ready for absolutely anything. You’re a whirlwind, Gemini!
Aries. As an Aries, your most intimidating quality is that you are quick to take action. You don’t wait around for things to happen and you don’t wait around for the perfect plan to fall into place. You’re proactive and aggressive and you go get what you want. People can be intimidated by your conqueror’s mindset.
Scorpio. When it comes to physical intimidation, you have no equal. Scorpio takes the prize in all tests of physical strength. They also tend to be quick to anger and can be intimidating because of their violent temper. There is a very good chance a Scorpio may need to take anger management classes.
Sagittarius. You are the most adventurous sign. You are always more than willing to engage in new experiences, to venture off into the unknown, and to try things others would never dare to dream about. You intimidate people because of your daredevil tendencies and your spontaneity. Most people just can’t keep up with you.
Leo. You’re intimidating because of your stature. Leos are symbolized by the lion, which is the king of the jungle, and your presence and attitude isn’t much different. You lord over people with your confidence and your power of will, which makes you intriguing and difficult to resist. You entice people but make them very nervous at the same time.
Aquarius. You’re the great thinker of all the signs, Aquarius. As such, people are intimidated by your mind. You may be quiet and shy at times, but that’s what can cause such concern. People know that even when you’re silent, your mind is always active. You’re always thinking, calculating, and plotting.
Pisces Pisces is the most passionate sign. While this is a good quality to have, it is one that the average person can get very intimidated by. People who don’t have your extreme level of passion and dedication can be put ill at ease by your tenacity. You have an energy inside you that could fuel an entire city.
Capricorn. You can be very severe and generally keep yourself pretty removed from people. You also have the tendency to be close-minded, so people are intimidated by you when they want to approach you with their opinions or new ideas. It’s difficult to make a first impression with a Capricorn because you can scare people off before they even get the chance.
Cancer. The most intimidating sign in terms of personality is probably the Cancer. When you’re in a bad mood or someone has pissed you off, everyone in the room better hit the deck. You can be downright vicious. You’d tear someone apart with your teeth if you had to, and it probably wouldn’t be all that hard.
Libra. Libra, you’re a highly emotional sign. You might have heard the phrase “you’re too much” before. Some people just candle handle the full spectrum of emotions like you can. It’s a heavy burden to bear but you do it, and others simply get scared off by it sometimes.
