Are you a Virgo? Are you organised? A perfectionist? Do you like to be in control and sort it out your problems by yourself? If this ticking all the boxes then you’re a definite Virgo. Here are 15 signs that you’re an absolute Virgo through and through.
1. You’re a perfectionist
A Virgo just wants everything to be perfect and to be to the best standard it can be. It’s easy to see how this can annoy other people, but honestly, good isn’t good enough. We want the best and we’re not letting ourselves settle for less.
2. You can be “picky”
Well, picky may not be the right word for it. For Virgos, they just seem to know what they want and know exactly what they don’t want. We’re just more in tune with ourselves?
3. “Analytical” is your middle name
This one is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, being analytical and observant is really useful when it comes to working and other tasks. On the other hand, you also tend to point out the flaws of other things and the people around you – and if you don’t vocalise it, you’re definitely thinking it.
4. You’re incredibly organised
A Virgo has a knack for keeping it organised, whether its dates, work, or the state of their room. If a Virgo’s room goes past the cleanliness threshold a deep clean and tidy-up is guaranteed. Virgos have a lot on their mind and a mess can make it difficult to focus on the key things.
5. That being said… there is one exception
Virgos may be organised AF but that doesn’t mean they have all their shit together. You may excel in one aspect but there will always be something you’ll flop at. Whether it’s hiding the mess in a closet or developing a bad habit. You’re just very good at keeping it under wraps though.
6. Don’t make it too complicated
As we know, a Virgo is a perfectionist and this means that they can also be stuck in set routines or be adamant on doing something a certain way. This can actually create more work or end up over complicating a project or problem. Sometimes it’s important to take a step back and breathe a little.
7. You’re in denial
The thing about being a Virgo is that we tend to not show our true emotions to people. Everything needs to be okay for a Virgo, and this can cause us to slip into denial about problems. A lot of the time you can be having a breakdown inside and your friends and family will be none the wiser.
8. You look at things realistically
You’re a realist, not a dreamer. Sometimes being a Virgo can make you come across as pessimistic but you’re just looking at things realistically so that you don’t set yourself up for disappointment. It’s better to appreciate what you can do right here and now than dreaming big about the future.
9. You give pretty solid advice
Your realism makes you a good friend for giving advice. You can see things objectively and have the common sense to say what’s needed.
10. You have a hard time reeling in your inner “control freak”
If you’re a Virgo you can be a bit controlling, but it comes with good intentions. You know what you’re good at and you want people to achieve that same vision. Just try to reel it in a little when working with other people because it can get a little overbearing.
11. You’ve probably spent a day organising a collection before
And don’t deny it. Whether it’s an entire day organising your CD collection or your entire bookshelf into a specific order. Let’s be honest, you enjoyed it and it was strangely therapeutic.
12. You may have trouble sleeping
A Virgo has a lot on their mind and when it gets too much, it can be hard to fall asleep. You may accidentally give yourself insomnia because at night you worry and over-think.
13. You can be “indecisive” about certain things
People may think that a Virgo is indecisive but in reality, they’re taking the time to think about every option. They want to weigh all the pros and cons to make sure they’re making the best choice.
14. You have a competitive streak
It doesn’t show up all the time but once there’s a challenge you’re out for blood. Whether it’s academically or playing a game – you want to show off your intellect and abilities. But this also means you can get frustrated if things don’t go your way.
