There is no debate that Virgo is a critical sign. Whether this is a boon or a bust for people who interact with them depends on the Virgo. For example, I work with two Virgos. They are both critical thinkers with keen minds. I’m fortunate to be able to run my ideas through their filter.
Virgos are efficient and can save you a lot of time and pain. The have the ability to catch your errors on all levels. Provided you can bear this, it’s a tremendous help.
I realize there are people who want to make their own mistakes but there are circumstances where mistakes are costly. For example you don’t want to print a million copies of something that contains a typo. In a case like that, it’s foolish not to run your copy by a Virgo.
I have definitely met Virgos who are absolutely insufferable. They can’t go three feet without criticizing you (or themselves) and they feel all pristine about it too.
What are your experiences with Virgos and criticism?
