The Gemini starsign is represented by "the twins".  Literally based on the twin brothers Castor and Pollux of Greek mythology, Geminis seem to have two distinct sides to their personalities that work well together while remaining entirely different.  Geminis are well known for being social creatures - they love being out and about and meeting new people.  At the same time they are loyal to those they are closest to and are known for giving great advice and being genuinely interested in other people.  Geminis are often restless, impulsive, and easily bored but they are also witty, imaginative, and clever.  And while they seem to need to have people around at all times, one of the major characteristics of Gemini is their independence.

It is hard not to notice a Gemini.  Without trying they attract attention from all directions.  This is most likely because the Gemini star sign is filled with huge amounts of energy.  Many Geminis are so excitable and curious that they fight sleep like an infant would.  These traits also make it difficult for members of this sign to stay focused on any one task long enough to accomplish it in a reasonable amount of time.

Rules and restrictions are not very compatible with the Gemini starsign.  These individuals need to find their own limitations as they go, they can't simply take the advice of other people who have been there before.  Exploration and a need to know everything that is going on around them are key Gemini personality traits.  Some find this to mean that Geminis are deviously gossipy, but this is not necessarily true. 

It's true that Geminis are talented in the arts of persuasion and manipulation, but overall they are very generous with friends and love to give advice - something that they do surprisingly well.  More than anything, members of the Gemini zodiac sign are able to make boring situations fun, and that is why people like to socialize with them.
