7 Common Gemini Myths Busted

1. They Are Liars

Geminis have a way of seeing both sides of things and are one of the few signs that accept multiple truths can exist at the same time. This can be hard for others to grasp.

Just because they are not “black or white” thinkers, it doesn’t mean they aren’t telling the truth! It may just mean their version of it has more than one answer.

2. They Are Always Late

Geminis do tend to say yes to everything, but it doesn’t mean they will all keep you waiting. Once a Gemini realizes they can’t possibly be in two places at once, they find it much more agreeable to make it to their appointments on time so that they have more time to socialize.

They are thinkers, and one thing they often analyze is themselves!

3. They Talk Too Much

Geminis spend much more time talking than anything else, it’s true.

Before technology replaced in-person conversations to such a large degree, it was quite normal to have long conversations and an important part of our social framework.

Geminis help us hold onto our ability to have face-to-face conversations, which we need in order to have strong bonds and interpersonal skills.

4. They Have a Dark Side

The twins are the symbol of Gemini. This is sometimes thought of as an angel and a devil.

Some might say that a Gemini will turn on you, or that they don’t always have good intentions. This is a gross misunderstanding of their ability to understand different viewpoints.

Just because they can consider things from different angles, it doesn’t mean they are inherently twisted individuals. In fact, they are very loving, lighthearted, free spirits.

5. They Are Irresponsible

Geminis love to keep busy and be involved in just about everything.

Doing so much, it’s hard to store all the information they pick up on a daily basis. If they forget a name here and there, it’s important to realize how many people they meet, and that they most likely haven’t done it intentionally.

They may not prioritize punctuality or perfection because their strong suit is making sure people are enjoying the ride instead of just obsessing over the destination. They aren’t really irresponsible. They are simply artistic souls trying to get their fill of the world in. We could all learn a thing or two from the free-spirited Gemini.

6. They Lack Focus

Gemini has a naturally brilliant mind, which means it works quickly. Their brain processes a lot more information than most people; they can have five different conversations about different topics at once!

While it may seem that they are scatter-brained, they actually have a hyper-focused mind which is constantly observing and analyzing. We may demand that they stick to one topic because that’s what we are used to, but part of their genius is their creative way of being able to change gears and see where the excitement of a conversation might lead.

They help people think outside of the box.

7. They Are Adult Children

It’s possible that people who have forgotten how to have fun or are embarrassed about being goofy and letting loose gave them this reputation.

Geminis value the power of the imagination to help drive innovation and new developments in society. Their unwavering commitment to holding onto their childlike wonder and playfulness is one of their best traits, and this helps them move beyond following the crowd so that they can see new ways of doing things.
