Do you have the tendency to hurt peoples' feelings with icy sarcasm if they seem unaware of their own stupidity? Do you have at least one ex who is absolutely afraid of you? Do you like to have control over the television remote? Do you hate it when people on the bus or strangers in restaurants ask you personal questions? Are you honest to a fault? Have you burned more than a few bridges in business and personal life when you've had enough? Have you overcome incredible adversity to become a success? If some of these traits describe you, you just might be a Scorpio!
