Virgo Character Assassination

Here is some gratuitous information about me. I am a virgo and I can tick every virgo trait in the book...
Antiseptically clean
Insufferably neat and tidy
Organised to an unsettling degree
Surgically precise
Stickler for accuracy
Unerringly punctual
Always right
Photographic memory
Obsessed by minor detail
Do things to excess
All or nothing, no half measures
Highly addictive
Research things endlessly
Hyper-critical of everyone and everything
Most critical of myself
Intolerant of others’ failings
Harbour a grudge forever
Almost impossible to get to know properly
Astoundingly loyal
Capable of extreme tenderness
Intense
Highly demanding
Judge a book by its cover
Compassionate
Often cautious
Worried and anxious
Incurably sentimental and romantic
Deeply nostalgic
Wear my heart on my sleeve
Low self-esteem
Compulsive collector
Compiler of comprehensive catalogues
Creature of habit

Whew P.V., you assassinate thyself with impunity!
But there's an underlying obviousness here. You lay your cards on the table as neat and tidy as you will.

I'd have to say your character assassination is a not-so-veiled attempt at getting a grip on things, which is admirablle to say the least. Hiding from the truth about oneself is not a character failing you have listed, and for good reason.

It seems to me that these observations are only half-truths, in that Virgos can often contradict themselves. A good example would be your ability to be extremely tender and loyal and compassionate and deeply nostalgic, sentimental and romantic.

These are not what I'd consider failings in any sense!

I'd say your list is a provisional one; subject to change.

And so it goes in life.

Pat - fascinating that you should have more than half of them! You also picked the ones which I think people find most infuriating about Virgos. The "almost impossible to get to know" one is about having contradictory traits, I think. I know I would like to eliminte a few
too!

Wow, so I'm not unique!!

Pat said...

Yes, you are unique in your own perfect way!

Infuriating is one way to describe my effect on others. Stinging, petty and vengeful are what I would have eliminated. I am also immune to bullies and relish taking them down which makes me popular at work....which is why they tolerate the other nonsense I suppose?

Lately with my "Course in Miracles" training I am making myself NOT respond immediately. Great results so far.

Perfect Virgo said...

Pat - well we are both unique! "Stinging, petty and vengeful" might come under my 'harbour a grudge' heading? Very interesting about not responding immediately, I would do well to follow that code. I always feel ready for an immediate response, probably because the Virgo tendency is to prepare fully for any eventuality...

I'm afraid I am easily steam-rolled by bullies and wind up sulking in silence and licking my wounds. That's not a good trait either.

I did see this once and meant to come back and somment. It was during one of those hanging on times. I think Im still stuggling to get out of...funny how virgo and Libra have a lot of the same qualiies :)

Perfect Virgo said...

DG - we do have similar qualities. You are a little bit later than me then and I'm a late Virgo. I always knew from your posts, comments and e-mails that you would share a lot of my approach. Tough isn't it! :)

GEL said...

Many of these traits I share, but I'm not convinced of astrological significance even though I am a Virgo. You see, I also share many traits of other signs!

I see you opened your blog in the same month and year I opened my other, older blog, although many open blogs on a holiday. Glad you're here!

Perfect Virgo said...

Silvermoon - I know a Libran who was born 3 weeks overdue and they have classic Virgo traits too. So it might be linked to conception date rather than actual birth date?

With all this talk of astrology I don't want to sound like a white witch! In fact I have no interest in that whole sphere, purely in character traits.

My start date was Christmas Day I seem to remember. What fun I must have been having!! An interesting coincidence though, these similarities are strangely comforting.

Confession: My other older blog was actually originally opened in Oct, but I got cold feet and banished it about a week later, after one or two posts. The person, in real life, who had recommended opening a blog, wondered were mine disappeared to. With no pressure, that person encouraged me to re-open the blog. I mulled it over and decided to do so, on Dec. 20th, 2004. Ironically, that real life person doesn't choose to read or comment on my blog, preferring email communication!

Oh, as for Dylan's "Simple Twist of Fate", I'm very into music. My other blog is based on music. Each post is a title to a song and that title relates to my post in some way or another. I chose post titles that usually are of songs I like, but sometimes the choice is simply the best fit for the post topic. If you're curious about me, that blog is a mix of writing, art, and everyday things. It's blog title is "Good Vibrations" and its url is www.Green-EyedLady.Blogspot.com. My posting name for that blog is GEL (short for Green-Eyed Lady).

GEL said...

Its not "it's". I have no time to proof for blogs. I must do it for work. I concede. You're so right about traits. I am a Virgo!! LOL

Jane said...

hmmm...

Perfect Virgo said...

Jane - hmmm indeed. This list is actually quite horrible now I look at it again. I would never have anything to do with someone who displays these extreme traits - easy to see why some virgos turn out tobe rather unpleasant. I am hoping you will beg to differ there!

fathorse said...

My how you've changed!

Perfect Virgo said...

Bern - actually I can still see all those traits in me. Some are closer to the surface than others. A few are unpleasant so I hide them in polite company.
