Gemini personality traits include independence, adaptability, and a love of social situations. That last aspect seems to be the only thing most people focus on when talking about characteristics of Gemini, but talking is just one of the many things that Geminis are good at. The Gemni starsign is represented by "the twins", with the concept that there are two distinct sides to the personalities of this sign. Indeed Geminis are at the same time social, opinionated, and talkative, but they are also very restless and impulsive and can have a hard time committing to any one person, career, or decision. Indecisiveness is a hallmark of Gemini. With so much going through their minds at all times, it can be hard for members of this sign to focus on any one thought for too long.
There are also some negative characteristics of Gemini. While they are indecisive by nature, they can also be impulsive. Perhaps it is their restlessness and excitability that are to blame, or maybe Geminis are just tired of overthinking everything. Also, some signs see Gemini's talkativeness as them being flighty, gossipy, and superficial.
This is a very independent sign. Of all of the Gemini personality traits independence might not be the one that comes to mind first, but it is truly their individual energy that makes things happen in their lives. Geminis do not like rules, and following routines is not one of the characteristics of Gemini. No rules, no limits, no routines. That is the Gemini way.
Yet, most people seem to like Geminis for their friendliness and openness to share good advice with anyone who will listen. Gemini can be a very motivational sign if they can learn to lead by example. The chances of them leading any other way are slim, though they can be very persuasive, if not a bit manipulative as well.
