Scorpio Man: Personality Traits & Characteristics of the Male Scorpio

Posted on December 23, 2019

A man wearing a bed and black button up stands in front of a rose bush. He looks to the right and smiles.

There’s nothing quite as mysterious and intriguing as the Scorpio sign in astrology.

The Scorpio man is vampiric in nature, reclusive, passionate, and compared to most, wild.

This man may seem to be out for himself, but that is only because he is fiercely dedicated to his small wolf pack and little else matters for him to feel like he is achieving his life purpose. While there can be bubbly Scorpios, there will always be parts of the Scorpio personality that fearlessly and obsessively contemplate the finality of life and how people cope with death. They view their own morbidity as healthy and try to help others overcome and face their deepest fears. If you can get over how intense they seem at first, you’ll find someone who is very self-aware as well as one of the most intimate friends you will ever have.

The Scorpio personality male adults exude is often a little rebellious because they want everyone to find the truth of who they are and not be controlled by outside forces. This is why they approach each situation as if it’s a covert operation. When you’re on their good side, hanging out with a Scorpio can be exhilarating. But get on their bad side, and you might want to watch your back because all that passion can quickly turn to anger.

The Scorpio is a chronic sleuth when it comes to the deeper secrets of life because their ruling planet is Pluto, the planet most closely associated with the subconscious. Scorpio men can be a bit manipulative when it comes to seduction but they also don’t hide their intentions or feel they need to be fake. They really don’t put up with fake-ness and will challenge you if you’re putting up a front. Don’t let their quest for dark secrets fool you, they are as loving and loyal as they come.

Personality Characteristics of the Scorpio Man

The loyalty of a Scorpio man makes them extremely dedicated to their careers. They will strive for excellence and work rigorously often blowing the competition out of the water. This is not necessarily because they are competitive, but because they love to find out how to go all the way with things by removing their own inner blocks to excelling or pursuing the pinnacle of human experience.

The extreme nature of the Scorpio man can be their power and their demise. If they know their own mind, they can channel their need to be either friend or enemy with things in a healthy manner such as detective work, being able to focus creatively without distraction, or fostering relationships that enrich their career and life. If they are not self-aware, they may be prone to obsession, overly dramatic, and too caught up in conspiracies or dark ideas.

But a characteristic Scorpio male adults share across the board is their sensual and charming nature. As Water signs, they are intuitive and more concerned with emotional richness than monetary gain. That being said, they will splurge if something inspires them.

The Scorpio often feels like they are the outsider or that people don’t understand them and in some ways, that is true because they are stricken with the gift and curse of genius. Most Scorpios understand the workings of human nature on such a deep level that they can move the pieces of life to their liking just by pulling on people’s innermost desires.

They are cunning but not inherently deceptive. They will often break the law if they feel the law isn’t upholding a true sense of justice for one reason or another. Scorpios excel in careers such as theology, criminology, creative writing, investigatory work, and end of life services.

Scorpio can handle the heavier parts of life without feeling overwhelmed which is why they are often the ones going in to clean up a crime scene. They are drawn to violence not because they want to hurt others but because they want to understand where it comes from to dismantle it. They are extremely sensitive and loving at their core.

The Scorpio Man in Love

Having a Scorpio relationship requires you to give of your time as they expect to dive into the depths of your relationship and soul. A Scorpio man in love will move heaven and earth to impress you and make you feel safe, heard, and cared for.

They don’t waste time either. They already see you walking down the aisle when they meet you and they feel a deep connection with you. Just be prepared for their extremely possessiveness nature and jealous tendencies that require you not to have a roving eye. If you’re not one that can commit, you’re going to have a real nightmare if you’re dating a Scorpio because they are all or nothing people.

The tell-tale signs a Scorpio man is in love would be that they act like there is no one else in the room, they offer all their time to you, and they share their secrets with you. The great thing about dating a Scorpio man is that they would sacrifice anything to keep you happy and they are known to have a very strong sexual appetite making them great lovers. If you’re someone that is more cerebral and less physical, you may want to think twice about dating a Scorpio man because they will want to spend a lot of time getting to know you intimately.

If you are trying to attract the eye of a Scorpio man, show them your intelligence along with your favorite outfit. They love a strong perfume as much as a strong-willed partner. Ultimately, Scorpio men in relationships think of themselves as a loyal servant to their Queen or King and enjoy creating and exploring both of your fantasies. Dating a Scorpio is not like dating other men, so reading the Scorpio love horoscope can help you understand their emotions day-to-day.

Scorpio Compatibility & Communication

The Scorpio man speaks without holding back which means they are going to be the one that talks about taboo topics or says what everyone else is thinking but too embarrassed to say. They use words that conjure emotions because it’s a part of their game. They are able to make people feel things just by their exotic word choice. They play with words as a conductor brilliantly leads an orchestra.

They love to get people to open up and it can be very healing to have even one conversation with a Scorpio. They aren’t afraid to pull out the skeletons and uncover how they may be affecting your life.

If you’re going to have a healthy relationship with a Scorpio man, don’t try to hide your feelings from them. They appreciate honesty and bond with people who are unapologetic about their true feelings. A Scorpio becomes very animated when they feel they are uncovering the truth, so get ready for them to show emotions and don’t back down when they do.

Working or living with a Scorpio is like a soap opera because they explain things with such passion and love with such openness. They will probe you with questions, and if you’re not up for deep conversations, they would rather you just say so instead of building inner resentment.

Scorpio men get along best with other Water signs who feel things as deeply as they do, although their inner darkness is often a bit too much for sweet, sensitive Cancers. They also like the Earth signs who, similar to them, search for their soulmate and want to be joined at the hip.

Scorpio men often take things personally which can make it challenging to have a Scorpio man in the family. They really feel hurt when people shut them out because they take it as a permanent gesture so whether you’re dating them or related to them, don’t ignore them or they may never get over it.

At the end of the day, Scorpios are independent and do not like to be controlled so allow them to be themselves and you’ll get on fine.
