Who Are The 5 Most Critical Zodiac Signs? Any Guesses?

Pressure is one of the biggest triggers for criticism; whether it be in a work situation with an important upcoming deadline or even amongst friends. Whenever we feel stressed, we tend to lose our footing and this can see some of our most unsavory traits rearing their ugly heads. The quest for success and perfection often make many of us very prickly and even mean. Saying things we regret is a definite part of human nature, yet some of us go completely overboard and quickly fall into a critical rampage which can offend and hurt other people's feelings.

Each and everyone of us have our own individual traits which form the basis of our personality. While many people will value and admire the traits you have, you can equally expect a significant number of other people to dislike you on behalf of these same qualities. This isn’t necessarily to say that the latter group is more critical than the first but more so to indicate that all have our individual preferences.

These 5 zodiac signs are the biggest critics

That being said, there are certainly people who are much more detracting than your average person, likely a result of personal experiences and their zodiac signs personality. These types often belong to the most direct and honest zodiac signs, so they’d probably admit that they’re a critical person. In fact, more often than not, they are their own biggest disparagers and can be very harsh on themselves.

1) Virgo

Virgo is the most critical zodiac sign

The highly perceptive and analytical Virgo tops our list as the most critical zodiac sign. This demanding sign picks up on the smallest details that no one else sees or hears, using each piece of information to come to a conclusion. More often than the negatives weigh more than the positives and they aren’t afraid to let people know if necessary. 

2) Capricorn

Capricorn can become merciless 

Another earth sign takes the second place, with Capricorn knowing how to act critically of others if they feel it’s warranted. As such a goal-orientated and successful zodiac sign, Capricorn rarely finds the time to actively seek out and criticize other people. However, if someone gets in the way of a Capricorn’s goals, they’ll unload all of the pent-up anger on them at once. 

3) Scorpio

Scorpio is known for being brutally direct

While the two preceding earth signs act more so on reason, Scorpio acts purely on emotion. This highly passionate sign is extreme with its emotions, ranging from unadulterated affection to jealousy, aggression and resentment. Needless to say, it’s better to avoid a Scorpio in the latter mood as they’ll aim to destroy your spirit with their direct, critical and even malicious words. 

4) Cancer

Cancer snips when their insecurities take over

Cancer experiences fluctuating moods and emotions. This emotionally sensitive zodiac sign is renowned for its lack of confrontational skills and so often Cancers will direct the criticism towards themselves. The combination of their vast imaginations and their tendency to have periods of insecurity causes them to be highly self-critical people when life isn’t perfect.

5) Libra

Libra gets critical when superficiality takes its toll

As the sign known for being diplomatic, gentle and fair-minded, it may be a surprise seeing Libra round up this list. Libra will seldom say anything to actively hurt another’s feelings, the issues for this superficial sign is rather that they place too much emphasis on appearances. They want to be loved by everyone and when this naturally doesn’t come happen, they are known to drown themselves in self-pity followed by self-criticism.
