Each person has a unique way of responding to compliments. Some feel shy and blush, others giggle and glow with happiness, while some feel weird and uncomfortable when given a compliment.
The truth is, deep down everyone likes a good compliment, but the outward reaction depends on the type of person they are. As you already know that your zodiac sign is a great indicator of your personality and behavior, so it is no surprise that different zodiac signs have their special ways of handling compliments.
“I can live for two months on a good compliment”— that’s the renowned writer and humorist, Mark Twain’s response to a compliment!
Let’s find out how your zodiac sign responds to compliments.
How The Zodiac Signs Respond To Compliments
1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Love compliments; they have an insatiable appetite for praises so they try to fish for more!
Aries get excited when they receive the right kind of compliment. Aries are enterprising, courageous and very ambitious. If you compliment them on any of these traits that they are proud to possess, they will be on cloud nine! They become so excited when complimented that they try to fish for more in subtle ways.
2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Tongue-tied, confused and not very comfortable receiving compliments.
How should they react? If they say too much, it might indicate that they are fishing for more praises. If they say too little, they might come off as a rude person. So they better stare at the ground while the compliment continues. However, they never forget the people who appreciate them and always treat them with kindness. Taurus might not be comfortable receiving compliments, but they are good at singing their own praises. If the situation demands where they need to remind others of the value they bring with them, they confidently highlight their virtues.
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Not sure how they should react, depends on their mood.
Gemini’s response depends on their mood. Some days they are good with being praised and take it in the spirit that it was given, but on other occasions, they may brush it off as fake words. At times, they even get super embarrassed. What they despise are praises with an agenda. They can be pretty brutal if they suspect something of that sort. So it’s best not to say anything if you’re not sure how they will take it.
4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
*Feels gooey inside* Positive affirmations motivate and encourage them greatly.
This zodiac sign loves compliments in a different way altogether. They feel warm and mush, and at times, they get all teary. If you compliment them about something they have been worrying about– like praising them for their work or telling them that they make an awesome parent, it can actually bring tears to their eyes! Cancer is a family-oriented sign, so when compliments come from loved ones, they become especially happy. It inspires them to be kind to you, so expect flattery and maybe a present as well!
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
“Oh! This sounds great, keep going, give me more!”
The act of complimenting was invented thinking about Leo’s personality! They are so hungry for praise that they become ecstatic at receiving any kind of compliment. You’re likely to get a full-body reaction from them- their lips stretch into a broad smile, their eyes light up, and they’ll probably give you a hug or a peck to express their gratitude for your kind words! Leos are proud souls and love basking in the spotlight. So if you keep showering them with lavish words, you’ll end up making a lifelong friend.
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
No sign of joy or surprise in their body language.
Virgos are the realists. They are practical-minded, have a good sense of who they are and are skeptical too. So if your compliment states the obvious, they don’t give much of a reaction. And if you are trying to flatter them with flowery words, they won’t fall for that and might bluntly brush it off. If you want to impress them, give them something real and tangible and not just meaningless words. However, they appreciate kindness so they will never be rude.
