5 Things to Know About Your Gemini Friends

Those born under the sign of Gemini often get a bad rap because they're seen as erratic and changeable. And with their dualistic personality, Gemini are complex. But if you can learn to flow with the twin aspect of your Gemini friends, you'll have true friends for life. Check out the following traits of most Geminis:

1. Smarter than the average bear

Geminis are well informed. They do their research on topics that interest them, and they're able to store information in their heads as if they have the Internet in their brains. This also means a Gemini is usually the smartest person in the room. Rarely will a Gemini work to prove her intelligence, she'll just ignore whoever doubts her. It can be intimidating.

2. Life of the party

Geminis are fun, and they want to make every occasion a good time. They need to play, laugh, hold court, and hang out with their friends. With their wide understanding of many topics and love for information, Geminis are great guests at a dinner party. When they're "on," the party will continue, and you'll be glad for their company.

3. The evil twin

Geminis often have a shadow component to their personality that is strikingly different from the social, happy, friendly, and talkative person we love so much. It's not uncommon for Geminis to seem cold, distant, and unavailable, and in truth, no one can freeze another out quite like a Gemini can. If you have a strong sense of self, don't take it personally, because the pendulum will swing back to warmth and love soon enough.

4. Confidence

Gemini people exude confidence because they know how valuable they are to those in their lives. Because they take the time to be well informed and skilled at what they do, they trust themselves.

5. Sense of humor

Geminis have a wicked sense of humor and the ability to laugh at themselves when they're wrong, which they rarely are. They don't mind being the butt of a good, smart joke for the sake of real fun, and they're willing to look foolish to get a laugh. If you like clever, thoughtful humor, hand out with a Gemini.
