Scorpio Man Personality, Traits & Characteristics

Scorpio men know exactly who they are. They have very fixed opinions about everything, and it is almost impossible to change their opinions about anything. They also relish a good argument about politics or religion, and consider nothing taboo. These men are headstrong and have a deep desire to control absolutely everything in their lives. Scorpio guys don’t like surprises or being left unprepared. Their unwillingness to bend to the opinions of others can make them seem a little bit arrogant.

Scorpio men have an incredibly hard exterior, and you might believe that it is impossible to hurt their feelings. But this steel armor covers a soft interior and they are actually incredibly sensitive. Once their trust has been broken, they are unforgiving, and if a Scorpio man doesn’t like you, their sharp tongue means that you will know about it. They aren’t mean, but life has taught them the importance of protecting themselves.

Likes & Dislikes

A Scorpio man has never encountered a subject that he doesn’t have an opinion on, and he also enjoys sharing his opinion. He doesn’t mind if you disagree with him, as he loves a good argument and debate. Though he sometimes doesn’t know how to let the subject drop. They never accept what they are told and follow the opinion of the majority. They always need to make up their own mind based on the evidence and their own experience.

Scorpio men like to play their own cards pretty close to their chest, and can’t stand others snooping in their business. But in contrast, they are quite nosy themselves and love to know what is going on with other people. They get frustrated when they feel like someone is being dishonest with them or keeping a secret. They also love following clues and putting the pieces together to solve a mystery.

Home Life & Family

Scorpio men are very controlling when it comes to their home environment. They know what they like, and that is what they want. His home is generally tidy, well organized, with the important things on display and nothing surplus to necessity. He can struggle when it comes to letting other people into his space. He can find even the mildest of behavior disruptive, and struggles to make genuine compromises.

Career & Money

Scorpio men thrive in leadership roles. They have an amazing ability to synthesize a large amount of information, keep it in their heads, and use it to make good decisions. Unlike some who crumble under the pressure of being responsible, Scorpio grows. But others can find their leadership style stifling as they tend to be micromanagers. They also don’t do well when they need to be one of the team themselves, as they can’t stand following the directions of others when they don’t agree with them.

Scorpio men are good with money, but no one close to them really knows how good, as they don’t like to share the details of the income and investments. They also probably have their money tucked away across a number of different back accounts and investments in order to minimize his risks.

Scorpio Men in Love & Relationships

Scorpio men tend to be slow when it comes to starting up a relationship, as they need the object of their affection to give them clear signs. They don’t like someone who plays hard to get. He is looking for someone who isn’t afraid to make their feelings clear. Once that bridge has been passed, he then does tend to move quickly, getting serious fast. But no matter how long he has been with someone, he finds it hard to break his suspicious streak, and he is always looking for evidence that things are not what they seem.

Attracting a Scorpio Man

Scorpio men need clear signals that the other person is interested in them, and doesn’t like to play games. The best way to attract a Scorpio man is to show your affection. They also appreciate someone who lets them indulge in their controlling ways and lets them choose when and where to meet up for a date. While they like to take about themselves, they will immediately be defensive if they feel like their date is starting to pry too deeply.


Scorpio men are most compatible with Taurus and Pisces. Taurus is a devoted partner and unlikely to do anything to fuel Scorpio’s suspicious nature. They are also open with their feelings, which is something that appeals to Scorpio.

Pisces’ over-the-top approach to love appeals to Scorpio, and they both move quickly, so before you know it they will have their own place, three kids and two dogs.
