The Scorpio Boss - Traits and Characteristics

Scorpio is the eight sign of the Zodiac calendar and includes those born between 23rd October and 21st of November. Known for their intense and unyielding nature, Scorpios make for rather complicated relationships, something which you are likely to share with your boss as well.

Immensely determined

Scorpios are famous for their courage and tenacity - qualities which you will begin to appreciate in your boss when you see him/her being awarded the most difficult jobs by the highest management in your company. A Scorpio is not afraid to take up a task, no matter how impossible it may seem, and will see it through till the end. In keeping with their fixed sign, people of this zodiac are also extremely determined and will not opt out of a course, come what may. All these qualities make a Scorpio useful not only to lead a team of professionals but also to do some quick fire-fighting when a company is in the midst of a crisis. Being courageous and determined in their own right, Scorpio bosses will also expect the same from you. So instead of being squeamish and indecisive about taking up a project, put your best foot forward and go ahead with confidence, no matter how difficult it may seem to you initially. Remember a Scorpio boss is not here to win the most popular boss prize – he/she will put you through the grind if that is what it takes to bring out the professional best in you.

Secretive and cautious

One of the first things you are likely to notice about your Scorpio boss is his/her reserved and cautious nature. Unlike a Cancer boss, he/she will rarely ask about your kids’ school or enjoy a coffee break chatting with employees like a Libran chief. Rather your Scorpio boss will come off as secretive and unwilling to give a clue to people around him/her as to what is going on in their minds. So don’t try and put intrusive questions to your boss if he/she bears this zodiac – you will get nothing out of them and only end up irritating them to a temper.

Curiously enough, behind that appearance of a cool and collected exterior, a Scorpio is actually capable of experiencing tumultuous emotions and intense passions. In fact a Scorpio’s secretive nature is a kind of defense mechanism since wearing one’s heart on the sleeve all the time and laying it bare for all to see is akin to inviting disappointment and disaster.  This is because individuals of this sign are known to love and hate strongly; in their personal lives at least, these people are known to exult in relationships lived on a perpetual emotional high. At the workplace, you may see some evidence of this trait in the zeal and intense involvement with which your boss takes up a project or galvanizes his/her employees into doing their best.

An extreme temperament

A tendency to move between extreme emotions is yet another consequence of a Scorpio’s intense nature. While a Scorpio boss might be able to keep a better handle on his/her emotions at the workplace than a Scorpio lover, sometimes this trait can reveal itself in the way that a boss may be sharply critical of an employee on one day and then full of praise the next. Unlike a Libra’s poise and balanced temperament, a Scorpio thrives on emotional extremes and will think nothing of playing mind games with his/her employees if it means getting the best out of them.

A highly perceptive mind

One of the ways in which a Scorpio boss is able to get a grip on employees is by his/her powers of perception. The keen mind of a Scorpio allows them to judge a person with an amazing acuity. In fact Scorpios have an uncanny knack of looking straight into the heart of people and learning the truth about them. It is perhaps this curious ability which has lent shades of the psychic and occult to the bearers of the sign and particularly its women.  So if you are keen on making a good impression on your Scorpio boss, your best bet is to be honest about yourself, since he/she may be able to look through deception and if there is one thing that Scorpios hate with all their hearts it is deceit and dishonesty.

Possessiveness and bent for jealousy

A Scorpio is highly possessive about their loved ones and though as a mere employee you may feel that this is hardly relevant to you, be careful of toying with their allegiance. Scorpio bosses might not take kindly to your fraternizing with the ‘enemy’, in other words, their competitors for the top managerial position or perhaps the HRD officer of a rival company. Once you have agreed to work for your Scorpio boss, he/she will expect you to honor that in letter and spirit. Unlike a Libran who can view things will equanimity, don’t expect your Scorpio chief to understand that your lunch date with the head of another department was just about enlarging your circle of professional contacts. For a Scorpio boss, you either belong to them completely or you better have nothing to do with them at all. And indeed if you are trying to score a sneaky one over your boss, make sure that you have an exit plan ready. The Scorpio is legendary for their streak of vengeance. If they believe that they have been cheated or shortchanged they will go to any lengths of getting even with you.

Though working for a complex personality like a Scorpio may seem rather daunting at first, there is a lot in it for you. You are not only exposed to the workings of a brilliant mind but can learn a great lesson in drive and determination by watching your boss in action. You simply need to work with honesty and industry and leave the mind games to someone who can do it better than you.
