As human beings, we are all inherently emotional creatures. But is it possible for some of us to be completely devoid of emotion? There are a few instances wherein we witness emotional bankruptcy in people during the most unusual of moments. It’s like when something traumatic happens to someone and it just overwhelms a person’s emotional system to the point that it makes them want to shut down. But are traumatic experiences really the triggers? Maybe there are just some people out there who are downright emotionless at their core.
Well, it turns out that astrology has the answer. There are indeed specific Zodiac signs who are known to be quite emotionless – no matter what the circumstance or however a situation might affect them. While this can seem like totally odd and unusual behavior to some, it can be perfectly normal to others. And it makes sense. After all, feelings and emotions have a way of just messing and muddling everything up. And perhaps some of these Zodiac signs relish in the fact that they don’t feel emotions the same way that other people do. Maybe they are able to see it as a strength to be able to shut their emotions off at will.
It’s almost like a coping mechanism whenever it happens, really. When we are overloaded with feelings and emotions, we try to blunt ourselves to everything. If a pain is just far too much to bear, we switch it off. When we get overjoyed and we risk blinding ourselves to the reality of a situation, we maintain a cold disposition. Some of us don’t do it well. And some of us do it so much better than others. Here are the 6 Zodiac signs that are known to be quite emotionless:
1. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
As a Capricorn, you already have a reputation for being very mysterious. You always carry yourself with a certain sense of stoicism. No one ever really knows how you feel about them – and there’s a good reason for that. You are deeply ambitious. You have many dreams and goals that you set for yourself. And you also know that many negative feelings like fear, sadness, and anxiety can keep you from achieving your dreams. And so you have essentially trained yourself to block out these emotions to the best of your abilities. Sometimes, you can be a bit ruthless with your methods. You act without first thinking about how your actions can impact others. And while it may seem guiltless, it’s all part of your unemotional nature.

You have dual personalities. You’ve probably been told this before or you’ve probably already discovered this about yourself long ago.

You are very adaptable as far as your personality goes. And whenever one side of you starts to become overly emotional about something, the other side of your personality takes over and shuts everything else out. You then become an impenetrable wall that houses a vacuum of emotional emptiness.
