Scorpio Man Personality Traits
What is the first expression you gave when someone told you that he was a Scorpio? Whether you believe in astrology or not, you may already have preconceived notions about a Scorpio, especially a Scorpio male. Are weird, passionate, sexual and vindictive some of the words that come to your mind? I am sure you would have heard about these Scorpio male personality traits from either someone else or from the internet.
There are undoubtedly thousands of blogs and articles out there which talk about a Scorpio man’s personality and most of them give you a decent picture of a Scorpio male. However it probably won’t get better than to understand a Scorpio male personality from a Scorpio himself. So let us see what a Scorpio man is all about.
- Mysterious and Charming
Every blog you may have read will talk about how mysterious a Scorpio male is. This is indeed true. A Scorpio man is probably the most mysterious of all the people in the zodiac other than his female counterpart. The reason for this is that he is very secretive. Added to that is a Scorpio’s famous (or infamous) all penetrating gaze that can make almost anyone feel naked. While a Scorpio male can read most people like an open book, he is one person you can never ever read completely. He is so deep that it may take a lifetime for you to understand him.
A Scorpio man is also sometimes referred to as the James Bond of the zodiac. This is because of the mysterious and confident aura he emits around him which draws the opposite sex to him.
Talking about being secretive, Scorpio men are the ones who are most commonly accused of being highly secretive (at least I get it all the time from people around me). They do not open up easily to people around them since they don’t trust people easily. A Scorpio man may know you for a lifetime, but still won’t reveal all his secrets to you. Even the most socially active and talkative Scorpio man has his secrets and will never talk about it. He is willing to die for his secrets than revealing it to even his closest people. Giving up his secret is like taking out a part of his body.
There is no other sign in the zodiac which can come close to a Scorpio male when it comes to being passionate. A Scorpio male is considered the most passionate and the best lover you can find. Unfortunately, most people limit their thoughts to sex and romance. A Scorpio male is passionate not only in the department of love, but in everything he does. If he is doing something he really loves, he will put his heart and soul into it which is immediately evident to a person. If you see someone talk very passionately about anything, he may probably be a Scorpio. He loves passionately and he hates passionately. There is no middle ground.
- Tough yet soft
Most blogs you read mention this in a line. A Scorpio male has a very tough outer shell but is very soft inside. His emotions run very deep and he knows that. This is probably the reason why he puts up a tough facade in order to not get hurt. This tough, yet calm face is also the reason why people don’t easily approach him. This, coupled with his non-trusting nature is the reason why he has few friends in his inner circle. It is indeed very tough to get into his inner circle, but if you are lucky enough to make it there, he is one guy who is willing to sacrifice himself for you.
- Emotional and Intelligent
Scorpios are often notorious to make decisions through their hearts. However, this is not true all the time. It is true that Scorpios are passionate and make decisions which appeal to their emotions. However, Scorpios are masters of both emotions and logic. As much as a Scorpio man tends to take an emotional decision, he is also very good at looking at the entire situation in a logical and analytical way, and if he sees it right, no one can stop him from taking that decision.
- Wise and Mature
It is also said that Scorpios in general are wise beyond their age. This is true again. A Scorpio guy may not be a Math or economics Wiz, or a rocket scientist, but he is one of the most intelligent and wisest people you will find. You may compare a 25 year old Scorpio male’s wisdom and maturity to a 35 year old male of most other signs. It is difficult to understand why this is so. It is just that what most people have to learn through years of experience, he already knows.
Let me explain this. A Scorpio person is a deep thinker. When he is dealing with a challenge or facing issues, he tends to withdraw into his shell unlike others who voice their problems. Once he withdraws into his shell, he tries solving problems in his own way in a focused manner. He doesn't like anyone interrupting in any way when he is thinking deep, as he likes to be left alone. So, when someone tries to interfere his problem solving process, he tends to get agitated and irritated. When his "problem solving" cap is not on, he is generally a warm and a happy person. This frequent change in his behavior is generally perceived as his mood swings.
One of the personality traits of a Scorpio man is that he is highly ambitious. He may never tell you what his goals in life are, but he does have certain goals he wants to achieve at any cost. However, though Scorpios love to lead a good life surrounded by luxuries, the end goal necessarily need not be money oriented. A Scorpio is more oriented towards achieving something that gives him an emotional and more importantly, a spiritual satisfaction. Most Scorpios in general also have high standards about themselves and people around them. They demand high quality from themselves and people around them.
A Scorpio easily attracts and is attracted to power. This does not necessarily mean that a Scorpio wants to be in the limelight. In fact, unlike certain other zodiac signs who like to be in the limelight while wielding power, a Scorpio man rarely craves to be at the forefront. A Scorpio man is ruled by Pluto, lord of the underworld. As such, he prefers to stay away from the limelight. He is one person who prefers to be at the back end of the stage while he pulls the strings.
This is one negative trait for which he is most famous for. But before describing it, here is a clarification. A Scorpio is a very warm and friendly person… as long as you do not cross him. He is willing to give his life for you if you prove your trustworthiness. However, never ever make a mistake of stepping on the wrong foot of a Scorpio man. Unlike his female counterpart who may forgive you for your foolishness of crossing her, a male Scorpio rarely forgives you and even if he does, he will never forget it. Some Scorpio men go to any extent to have their revenge. You may never be able to gain a Scorpio man's trust again in your lifetime. As the cliché goes, he can be your best friend or your worst enemy.

Best match for a Scorpio man
Most astrology blogs claim that the ideal mate for a Scorpio man is either a water sign such as Cancer and Pisces or an earth sign such as Capricorn or Virgo. However, I would refrain from saying that. Honestly speaking, a match can never be made from sun sign compatibility alone. For example, some of my best friends are Scorpios, Libras, Leos and Sagittarius. I have also seen Scorpios marry air or fire signs and living happily. If you need to do a compatibility check, it needs to be done at a whole different level. It ultimately also depends upon the environment in which a person is brought up, and his/her belief and value systems among so many other things.
So these are the most common Scorpio male personality traits. Having said that, each person is unique in his/her own way. A sun sign can only give you the strong traits of a person and not the entire personality. Hope this little (or rather long) article helps you in understanding a Scorpio man better. Now you don’t have a reason to call him weird. Is a Scorpio woman similar to her male counterpart? Well… To be honest, both are entirely different species. But yes, both are similar in many ways too.
PS: You may see some evolved Scorpios who are nice and warm, and you may also see downright vengeful and nasty Scorpios. To understand these different types, you can also read my hub http://karthikkash.hubpages.com/hub/Totems-of-A-Scorpio
