People who are born under the Gemini sign can sometimes get a reputation for being a bit, well, all of the the place. But there’s actually a lot more to the Gemini personality than many realize and they possess many unique traits and characteristics that often aren’t noticed at first glance. So to give you a better sense of what it really means to be born under the sign of the Twin lets dive into the the Gemini personality by revealing 12 of the most common traits and characteristics that make them a total BADASS.
1. The Gemini mind is constantly racing with thoughts and ideas.
The Gemini-born are intellectually inclined, forever probing people and places in search of information. Ruled by Mercury, Geminis exhibit a delicious brand of mercurial energy. They are quick-thinking, quick-witted and fast on their feet, much like the messenger god of Roman mythology that rules their sign. They can be wishy-washy, too, changing their mood on a simple whim. Further, the Twins are adaptable and dexterous and can tackle many things at once. The mind of the Gemini is constantly racing and contemplating all sorts of thoughts, ideas and questions. They are naturally curious about practically everything and can find it hard to stick to any one thing for too long because their passions and interests are so diverse. They have the incredible ability to skim a Wikipedia entry about something then talk about it as if you are a scholar on that subject.
2. Gemini is extremely independent and can’t be controlled.
Geminis tend to be extremely independent and self reliant and they like to forge their own path in life rather than live in someone else’s shadow. They will not be pinned down by anyone or any rules. They need to experience the world on their own. Change and freedom are extremely important to Gemini, they will never let anyone dictate them, they are extremely independent and freedom is essential to their mental well being. They need the freedom to be able to live life on their own terms and if you are trying to control them or ‘box them in’ then they will be quick to distance themselves from you. If you find yourself lucky enough to have a committed relationship with a Gemini, don’t mess it up. A Gemini needs genuine freedom and space and requires spontaneity and a little risk. You’re in his or her life because a Gemini chose you, not because a Gemini needs you. Allow him or her room to breathe, thank your lucky stars and enjoy the ride.
3. Gemini is observant as hell and constantly soaking up knowledge.
The Gemini is a curious creature who is constantly observing their surroundings and soaking up knowledge everywhere that they go. They are always eager to learn new things and the experience different things that they see. They are natural investigators with a knack for figuring out the truth… never underestimate their ability to get to the bottom of things! They love sharing their thoughts and their knowledge to other people. Geminis are also known to be superficial and will share these things to you without even studying the situation first. That is why some people tend to think that Geminis are known to be the know-it-all astrological sign.
Gemini has a sixth sense for detecting bullshit and can sniff you out if you’re being ‘fake’.
They have a powerful ability to sniff out bullshit, liars and anyone that’s being ‘fake’. Since they are honest with you they expect the same courtesy in return, if you’re fake with them they’ll have no time for you.
4. Gemini has no patience for overly critical people that do nothing but complain.
Gemini has little-to-no time for serial complainers who insist on poking holes in absolutely everything. If you sound like a broken record just whining about same things over and over and over and over again… then they will get bored and find somebody else to hang out with.
5. Gemini is NOT afraid to tell you exactly what they think.
The Gemini has got a lot of opinions and you better believe that they are going to share them with with the world. Geminis are real; you’re going to hear some of the funniest sh*t around them. People who gossip annoy them, so they won’t bad-mouth anyone. They tell the truth and express their opinions without thinking twice about who may hear them. Geminis will tell you the truth, even if you don’t ask for it. They are the kinds of people that will tell you exactly what is on their mind without any kind of filter… even if it’s not pretty. When Geminis become secretive, you know they care for you. They will soon reveal truths very few people have heard.
6. Gemini is a supportive and encouraging friend.
When one of their friends or loved ones has problems the Gemini often picks up on it instinctively before a word is even said about it… and they will then go out of their way to make sure they are okay. They always know exactly what to say to make someone feel better and are great at giving advice that is actually helpful. If you need any advice, Gemini is the one to ask. They are masters of communication and they can help you get what you need by helping you with persuasion and enthusiasm. They are very generous with their friends, they will spend lots of time with you and share everything with you. Those who have a Gemini friend already would know that they’re the most loyal friends they can ever have. Whether it is fighting for you, or carrying you home when you pass out, they’ll always have your back.
7. Gemini can be an outrageous flirt at times.
Geminis have a habit of being massive flirts sometimes. They can’t help it though and half the time they don’t even realize they are doing it. They’re just naturally friendly people who have a real way with words. Geminis are known flirts but once they are attached to someone they become blind to the rest of the world. A Gemini man flirts because it’s his nature. It is part of his ability to win people over in conversation and debate. A Gemini man may flirt with other women, but his love and loyalty are devoted to his woman solely.
