Every individual is unique with a different personality that is formed by one’s nature, culture (upbringing) and education. Personality is basically who we are and what we identify with as ‘self‘. There are many factors influencing our characteristics and temperament such as biological and social differences as well as individual experiences.

Each sign has certain characteristics, good and bad as well. Bad is not necessarily something fully negative. Once we identify the weaknesses of our zodiac signs it gives us a chance to reflect on the things we might want to improve on. Let’s see what are the negative characteristics of each zodiac sign.
#1 Aries (21 March – 20 April)
Of all the signs Aries are the most impatient, so much so that their motto should be ‘Now, now, now!’. They tend to demand things instantly. Because they often don’t think through situations rather hurry to do things, they can arrive at a decision to quickly later regretting it. Impatience can also block their way to success.
Aries born tend to get very dominant at times thrusting themselves too much on others. They have a hard time accepting when things don’t go their way and it is very difficult to control them. After all, they are born leaders. They hate waiting for others to get the work done. Occasionally they can get egoistic.
Aries can get a little aggressive if things don’t work out the way they want them to. This impatient and headstrong nature can be childlike and immature. They don’t like taking orders from others and following rules are not their strong side either. They prefer having things in their own ways much like stubborn kids.
Arians fiery, passionate personality can be easily explained by the fact that they belong to the Fire signs. On the positive side fire element gives natural positivity, enthusiastic and energetic personality to the Aries-born. However Fire has its negative aspects as well, making Arians quick to anger and often very impulsive.
Aries often possess strong and powerful character, or even dominant nature which can turn into possessiveness. They might have envious and jealous thoughts in love life or business matters. They must be careful with this bad state of mind as it can hold back their progress and learn to focus on thoughts of love and kindness.
One of the biggest qualities of the Aries people is that they are go-getters. They want to succeed and are very ambitious but sometimes they can put too much pressure on themselves. When they are working they never pause until the work is done. This tremendous amount of drive can make them over-achievers in anything they set their mind to tackle.
7. Hurrying to do things
Due to their fiery temper Aries tend to hurry to do things, and get impatient as mentioned before. Once you are aware of this personality trait you can improve on it. When you have a very important matter to decide, take plenty of time in arriving at a decision. Try to establish a quiet and calm state of mind before settling important matters.
The energy of the Fire tend to influence the Arians personality, making them unpredictable just like fire. What is the most difficult them to handle is criticism and facing obstacles. Perhaps they seem unpredictable on the surface but deep inside they are loyal and devoted friends and lovers, fighting for their causes and for their loved ones.
9. Straight forward
Aries have a very straight forward approach towards life which can make them self-involved and self-centered. This attitude may also mean that they care less about others feelings. Aries are straight forward in the matter of love as well. They are devoted partners and don’t take betrayal lightly.
No wonder why is the symbol of this zodiac sign is the charging ram. The stubbornly persistent personality is a key to their success but it can also be an obstacle. They can be pretty inflexible and not open to any suggestions. They usually do what they think is right.
