Things You Better Not Say To or About a Capricorn

There is a lot of material out there about the personality traits of the zodiac signs, and most of these references tend to dwell on their positive traits much more than their negative. While this is good in itself, it is also important we know about the negative parts too as that will help maintain a proper balance.

Have you ever been exposed to your biggest fears? Have you at any time search for the negative traits of your personality? Or are you careful to know that you don't say certain words to certain zodiac signs? Well, in this article, we are going to be intimating you with the Capricorn zodiac sign.

Capricorns tend to want to prove themselves more to other people compared to the status quo, even if they are already doing everything that they can. The reason behind this is because they typically feel very unworthy in everything that they usually do.

Most of the people who are born under the astrological sign of Capricorn need to love themselves before worrying about what other people think of them. This is necessary because this is the only way to the door that leads them to the other side of life, where fun and pleasure can be experienced.

Capricorns also feel the need for material and financial security. These two aspects are important for them to be able to succeed in every step that they make, whether it is about their career or about their personal lives. Usually, Capricorns need to feel that they are being appreciated by people around them because they have the tendency to become loners if they feel worthless around other people.

Capricorns have great traits. They are go-getters and tend to achieve a lot of things during the course of their life on earth. People who are born under the zodiac sign of Capricorn are life achievers and some of them include Joan of Arc, Mohammed Ali and Sir Isaac Newton, they are known to be people with ambitious spirit and very strong too.

They typically have some qualities that the world, and even themselves, cannot always comprehend, which can sometimes create a feeling of unworthiness and insecurity, so it is best to avoid saying some things that might make them feel bad. Capricorns are very sensitive people and as such, you should avoid saying these things to them.

That is a lame joke

Capricorns are conversant people who hold intelligent discussions, if they drop a dry joke during a conversation, you might want to refrain from telling them that you don't find it funny as they get offended easily.

You are too distant 

They might feel you are indirectly telling them how to run their emotional affairs and that is an idea Capricorns don't take likely. They often go through mood swings, so, they focus on taking notes of their moods and act accordingly. They might smile now and frown later.


You are lazy

Capricorns are very hard working people, telling them they are lazy might be seen as you belittling their efforts. Therefore, they will definitely feel hurt  so it's better to avoid using this term when addressing Capricorns.


Your tradition means nothing

Capricorns are known to be lovers of things pertaining to tradition, they are known to prefer old ways of doing things and will find it very annoying if you tend to talk down on their beliefs.

You are irresponsible

Capricorns are law-abiding people and do things by observing protocols. They hardly go against methods or guiding rules when doing things. Telling them they are not careful or responsible is an insult they will most likely raise objections to.

Force them to follow your rules

Capricorns have a mind of their own and as self-willed people, they will not bow to your commands and will not hesitate to rebel if you force your opinion on them. They tend to do things their way and avoid running on other people's ideas or opinions. Forcing them to obey you is another way to get Capricorns pissed off.

I don't need you

Capricorns are very sensitive people. Pushing them away might make them leave and never come back to you again.  Avoid lashing at them when you are angry as they hardly change their minds once it's made up.

What are you thinking about?

Being secretive, Capricorns might find this question annoying and can switch to the defensive side pretty quickly. No matter if you meant well or not, they will see these questions as an invasion on their privacy and will not hesitate to show their displeasure.

You are undisciplined

These three words are a combination you don't want to use while talking to a Capricorn as they will feel insulted. Capricorns are known to avoid conflict and keep to rules. They are not likely to be rowdy so this statement might cause an argument which can degenerate into a verbal altercation.

You know nothing 

This is another statement they will not ignore if it's said to them. They believe they are Intellectual beings and telling them they know nothing can be seen as an insult. To be on the safe side, avoid discussing their level of knowledge if you don't have compliments to offer.

Although Capricorns are very easily angered, they are good at keeping it hidden. They hardly complain or issue warnings but only when they are pushed to their limits that they will finally express their aggression. They will criticize until their opponent is left with emotional wounds. Capricorns know the right words to use in breaking their opponents' emotional defense.

A Capricorn is the type of person who will say something like “I’m not mad, I’m disappointed” in order to cut someone deeper than they need to. They strive to make people feel terrible about themselves when they are angry. They use silence as a weapon until they feel it is no longer effective, and they are master manipulators. When angered they can be extremely mean and unruly, and they can go to extremes when their emotions are not balanced.
