The 5 Harshest and Most Critical Zodiacs Of The Horoscope

There’s always at least two ways of looking at a situation, as the famous “glass half-full or glass half-empty” question demonstrates so clearly. While the way you describe a glass of water doesn’t necessarily decide whether you’re an optimistic or pessimistic person, it does help us to understand more so what qualities we look for in other people first. Who are the 5 most critical zodiac signs?

 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.

The 5 Most Critical Zodiac Signs

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

Too perceptive

1. Virgo

The highly perceptive and analytical Virgo tops our list as the most critical zodiac sign. This demanding zodiac 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. Virgos are perhaps even more critical of themselves however, as they come to realise that they too are humans prone to swaying emotions and irrational actions. Virgo, this is one of those things you shouldn’t be ashamed of.

Merciless when held back

2. Capricorn

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 criticism on them at once. This is the point of no return, as this zodiac is known for being unforgiving and condescending with people in their bad books.

Brutally direct

3. Scorpio

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. Scorpio is perhaps one of the meanest zodiac signs when they get into these uncontrollable states.

Insecurities take over

4. Cancer

Despite not being quite as volatile, perhaps, as Scorpio, Cancer remains a water sign that 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.

Superficiality takes its toll

5. Libra

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 zodiac 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.
