The great thing about astrology is that you can choose to take it seriously or not even pay attention to it at all. Naturally, the disadvantage of placing your faith in the Zodiac is having to confront the aspects of yourself that you might not want to know. Just one example: A recent survey conducted by YouGov revealed that many people disagree with some of the most fundamental characteristics associated with their astrological sign.
Over 1,000 adult U.S. respondents were given a brief personality profile of their sign to read, and they were then asked to say whether they agreed or disagreed with it.
Sagittarians were the most likely of the 12 zodiac signs to disagree with their profile, with 43% of Archers believing the description was incorrect. They are not to blame: Being told that we are impatient and frequently overpromise and underdeliver is also not something we would enjoy.) Lions came in second, with forty percent of Lions disagreeing with their profiles. In the meantime, 77% of Virgos and Taureans concurred with their respective descriptions. This, in our opinion, is an excellent illustration of fire signs that are combative and confrontational looking for something to argue about while earth signs that are more stable and even-keeled are looking for points on which they can both agree.
For the record, these descriptions only included a list of each sign’s strengths and weaknesses—only sun signs. It’s really considered common on the off chance that you don’t see your entire self reflected in your sun sign — that is the very thing that your introduction to the world outline is for. Since 48% of all respondents agreed that astrology cannot accurately predict a person’s personality, we don’t think any Sagittarians were hurt too much.
