Here’s Why People Are Intimidated By You, Based On Your Zodiac Sign


(March 21st to April 19th)

People very quickly pick up on the fact that you’ve already seen and experienced so much in your lifetime, and they often get into their heads and start worrying that they’re going to bore you or that whatever they have to say won’t be interesting to you.


(April 20th to May 21st)

You have an ability to quickly connect with almost anyone, so people feel like if you’re not immediately warm and comfortable with them, that it must mean something is wrong with them.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

People are used to seeing you happy, lively, and enthusiastic. So if they catch you on a day when you’re stressed or anxious about something (because you’re human and it happens), they start worrying that it’s because of something they did.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

People get uncomfortable around you because you’re the kind of person who makes people feel like you can read every thought going through their brain, regardless of what they’re actually saying to you out loud.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Your enthusiasm is contagious, but it can also be difficult for people who disagree with you on something. You’re so passionate about what you believe in that people are often afraid to say something if it’s not directly in line with what you think or feel.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

As analytical of a person as you can be, your face and your mood are both incredibly hard to read. People think of you as a very intellectual and interesting person, but the thing that makes them nervous is that they can never tell how you particularly feel about them.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

You get along with everyone, which at most times can be great, but it can also mean that some people worry that they’re not measuring up to your standards and feel pressured when they’re hanging out with you.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Your energy (around everything that you do) is seriously magnetic but also seriously intense. You’re a hard worker and you put your whole heart into everything that you do, so people also hesitate around you out of fear that they’re somehow getting in your way.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

Your straightforwardness at once impresses and terrifies people. They know you’re the person to go to when they need honest and candid advice, but they also know that you don’t sugarcoat anything and aren’t afraid to be truthful, which can be scary to one’s self esteem.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

You don’t do the fake-nice thing, which makes people both like you and feel nervous around you. You’re very clearly focused and ambitious, and what intimates that about people is they don’t know how to fully relax around you.


(January 21st to February 18th)

You can be very hot and cold with people. Sometimes you’re incredibly friendly and other times you’re very aloof and uncommunicative. People never know what side they’re going to get and they don’t know how to handle you when they’re used to the friendly side and then they experience the detached side out of nowhere.


(February 19th to March 20th)

You’re a very warm and kind person, but you’re also a bit of a flip flopper with your opinions, so what intimidates people about you is never knowing if what you’re saying is what you honestly think or if you’re going to change your mind next time they talk to you – it makes people uncomfortable to feel like they can’t get a good grip on how you think and make your decisions.
