This Sign Is The Saltiest About Their Personality Type

Photographed by Alexandra Gavillet.
The wonderful thing about astrology is that you can choose to take it seriously or ignore it completely. Of course, the downside of trusting in the Zodiac is having to face the things you may not want to know about yourself. Case in point: A recent YouGov survey found that more than a few people take issue with some of the most basic traits associated with their astrological sign.
The respondents, more than 1,000 U.S. adults, were given a brief personality profile of their sign to read and then asked whether they agreed or disagreed with the description.
Of all 12 signs of the Zodiac, Sagittarians were most likely to disagree with their profile, with 43% of Archers deeming the description inaccurate. (We don't blame them: We wouldn't love being told we're impatient and tend to over-promise and under-deliver, either.) Leos were a close second — 40% of Lions disagreed with their profiles. Meanwhile, 77% of both Taureans and Virgos agreed with their signs' respective descriptions. If you ask us, this is a classic example of combative and confrontational fire signs finding something to argue about, while the more stable, even-keeled earth signs look for the points they can agree with.
For the record, these descriptions only consisted of a set of strengths and a set of weaknesses for each sign, and just sun signs at that. It's pretty normal if you don't see your whole self reflected in your sun sign — that's what your birth chart is for. And, at any rate, a whopping 48% of all respondents said that astrology can't accurately predict someone's personality, anyway, so we doubt that any Sagittarian got their feelings too hurt.
