What Are Male Scorpios Like? Strengths and Weaknesses
Known for their mysterious air and dark sense of humor, it's no surprise that I've received many questions about the behavior and traits of Scorpio men. Today, I am writing about some of the strengths and weaknesses about this elusive sign. As a Scorpio man myself, these are the traits that I'm aware of.
This is one of the common characteristics of a Scorpio. Scorpios are indeed the most passionate people in the zodiac. While Scorpios are the most passionate lovers, the passion is not limited to romance and sex. Most of the things we do, we do it with passion, may it be our job or hobbies or even romance.
2) Mysterious and Charming
This is another common trait a Scorpio male is famous for. Scorpio men are not called the James Bond of the zodiac without a reason. He may not be as handsome as George Clooney or Brad Pitt in the traditional sense. However, his silent nature combined with his all penetrating gaze (haven’t you heard about our penetrating gaze that can make almost any woman feel stripped?) makes us not only mysterious and charming, but also hard to resist.
Scorpio men are not known to be very good with words when it comes to getting a job done. However, what they lack in words and probably luck, they compensate it through determination. Once a Scorpio has made up his mind about getting something, he will do whatever it takes to get it. And he can go on for a long time (sometimes even years) to get what he thinks rightfully belongs to him. His motto in life is “I never give up”!!
4) Loyal and trustworthy
Scorpio men have a bad reputation for being flirts. While this is true to some extent, a Scorpio man is rarely found to venture into adultery. In fact, if they truly love something (may be a cause) or someone, they will stand by them till the end. He may flirt with a hundred women, but he will always stand and fight for his woman. He is committed to one woman at a time.
5) Warm and Friendly
Many people may not be aware of this trait. While Scorpio men have a reputation of being loners or vengeful, being warm hearted is also their strength. He may appear extremely silent and private, but if you approach him, he actually treats you in a very friendly way. He can be the best friend you can find, of course unless you cross him.
This may not look like much of strength. However, when it comes to separating the real from the fake, he can easily separate them due to this nature. Unlike certain other zodiac signs, flattery does nothing to him. He can easily see through others’ pretenses. It takes an acid test for the person to become his friend. Only the genuine make it to his inner circle. Fakes and superficial people need not apply.
Now, here comes the scary part. If someone told you that a Scorpio male is the most vengeful person you can find, it is indeed true. No other zodiac sign can be as vengeful as him. He can be your best friend, but if you choose to cross him or betray his trust, he can be merciless in getting his vengeance. Some Scorpio people may instantly cut off all ties with you as if you never existed. There are other Scorpios who can take an oath to make your life hell till the end of your (or his) life.
Scorpio men are known to be highly controlling and overbearing. Ask any woman involved with a Scorpio and she can vouch for it. Scorpio men like to be in control of their surroundings. This means, being in control of everything around them. They are also known to have very high standards and expect the same standards from others. Unfortunately, most people find it extremely difficult to consistently match up to these standards. This is what gives them a feeling of a Scorpio being overbearing.
Another weakness of a Scorpio is his jealous nature. This happens especially when it comes to relationships. While every man is known to have a bit of jealousy when involved in a relationship, a Scorpio’s jealousy can sometimes cross the limit. It may at times border on the lines of suffocation for a woman. Any woman involved with a Scorpio should be careful about provoking a Scorpio’s jealousy.
Being a fixed sign, Scorpio men are known to be extremely stubborn about their beliefs. Unlike certain other zodiac signs, they do not easily waiver in their nature. This may actually occur as a negative side of being determined. Naturally, it may not be easy to convince a Scorpio about something if he believes otherwise.
Scorpio men can be quite manipulative. Though this may not be a common trait in all Scorpios at all times, it still is a trait you may find once or twice in a Scorpio. They can be master manipulators if they find it necessary, in order to get their job done. And they can indeed go to any extent in manipulating things and people around them. Remember, they like to be in control?
This should give you a better picture of some of the Scorpio strengths and weaknesses. So, if you are dealing with a Scorpio, make sure that you are in his good books. Otherwise, you may be in for a hell of a ride (or a ride to hell!!).
