The Scorpio Employee - Personality and Characteristics

Scorpio is the eight sign of the Zodiac calendar and includes those born between 23rd October and 21st of November. Marked for their intense drive and steely determination, Scorpios make some of the most indispensible people in a company or an organization.

Highly determined

A Scorpio is rarely confused about what he/she wants and how to get it. If you have a Scorpio in your ranks, you can distinguish him/her by a steadfastness of purpose and an intensity of determination which would be quite unnerving if it did not suit your professional purpose so admirably. Once a Scorpio is given a task and knows that its successful completion will get them what they want, they will set about it with a tenacity and single-mindedness that is rarely found in any other sign.

Immense self-confidence

What sets a Scorpio apart from other determined personalities like a Capricorn or Taurus is their deep and unwavering confidence in their own abilities. More than any other individual of the zodiac, a Scorpio is the master of his/her own fate.  You will find your Scorpio employee entirely self-motivated and single-minded in their desire to reach where they want to. The Scorpio has the power to make or break his/her own life and the most awe-inspiring thing is that they are completely aware of the fact. They rarely work under self-delusions and never lie to themselves about their motivations, weaknesses and strengths. This quiet self-confidence is entirely different from the egoism of an Aries or the self-aggrandizement of a Leo. A Scorpio’s self-assurance rather has the strength and potency that comes from complete self-knowledge. Moreover you will almost never find your Scorpio worker blaming anyone but him/herself for their own mistakes. No one else can be so resourceful and so sure of their own potential.

A keen analytical mind

The immense self-confidence of a Scorpio is backed by one of the sharpest and most perceptive minds in the zodiac. Apart from possessing complete self-knowledge, it is most likely your Scorpio employee is equally perceptive about the thoughts and feelings of others, including you. Most individuals of this sign are blessed with an innate mental acuity which grants them an uncanny insight into what drives people around them, what are their secret failings and weaknesses. And in fact you might find to your cost that your Scorpio is not above using this inner knowledge to get his/her own way while closing a deal or negotiating a pay hike.

As a boss if you can harness the power of a Scorpio’s keen analytical mind and his/her ability to sniff out people, you stand to reap huge benefits for your firm. Add to these their intense drive and steady determination and they are bound to be great successes in almost any professional field but especially those that require nerves of iron and razor-sharp brains.

Desire for power

The most common motivation for a Scorpio employee is power. This is completely unlike the need for security which drives a Taurus employee or the desire to give shape to great ideas which are at the heart of an Aquarian’s professional efforts. Power as signified by position, influence on other people and its external trappings is the chief force which drives a Scorpio employee ahead.

The interesting thing about their desire for power is that it often determines the quality of relationship he/she will share with someone. You may wonder at the quiet, even mild-mannered young recruit who does not raise an eyebrow even when you reject his/her proposal the third time, but this is because for the Scorpio the end justifies the means. Today he/she will calmly endure your tantrums and even incorporate your suggestions but only because they know that you hold the key to their success. A Scorpio is under no delusions that the road to ultimate power lies through you, their boss, and towards this end, they will do your every bidding. If on the other hand a Scorpio employee is treated roughly by a co-worker from whom he/she has nothing to gain, the latter had better watch out. The Scorpio’s capacity for revenge is legendary, aptly symbolized by the Scorpion which carries a deadly sting in its tail. This is one person who will never forgive a hurt that he/she has received and no matter how much water has flown under the bridge, never forget it either. And eventually one day the co-worker will rue the time he had made the mistake of stepping on the Scorpion’s tail. It is because of this hard, unyielding nature of a Scorpion that it makes sense to treat a Scorpio employee, no matter how much authority you have over him/her, with caution and the respect that he/she deserves. For you can be sure that one day your Scorpio will rise to the top and acquire the position of power that he/she had been working towards for so long. And on that day you don’t want to be on the wrong side of the Scorpion.

Highly secretive natures

Scorpios are cautious and reserved by nature and do not feel it necessary to maintain active social relationships like your Gemini or Libra employees. You will rarely find your Scorpio employee chatting with co-workers way past the lunch hour or taking the initiative to organize the office Christmas party. This also means that you would do well not to pry into your Scorpio’s personal affairs or offer advice on how they should go about their divorce.

Interestingly however despite their calm exterior, Scorpios are capable of feeling very intensely. In personal relationships, they are known to love and hate with a strong fervor and in fact are reputed to be rather passionate lovers. At the workplace however you may be allowed only a glimpse of their intense emotions - in a flashing look of annoyance or a deeply-felt expression of gratitude perhaps – because on the whole Scorpios are quite capable of hiding their tumultuous feelings behind a deliberate fa├žade.

So while a Scorpio employee may have his/her own destiny to fulfill, their sharp minds, steely determination and unwavering courage make them an asset to any individual or organization they work for.
