When it comes to the Capricorn man, it seems that he can never leave his ego at the front door.
But why does it always seem like the Capricorn man is always so into himself? The better that you get to understand the Capricorn man, the easier it will be to see why he thinks highly of himself.
Why Are Capricorns So Egotistic?
It’s safe to say that some of the Capricorn man’s best characteristics play a direct role in why he can be so egotistical.
After all, the Capricorn man is goal-driven and expects to do big things with his life. With that being said, it’s easy to see how the Capricorn man can think very highly of himself.
Given the fact that most Capricorn men are extremely hardworking, they tend to have a sense of entitlement for the amount of blood, sweat, and tears that they put into any type of project.
The Capricorn man also likes to see himself as being the king of the jungle, and sometimes, he can actually be right. This goes hand in hand with the fact that many Capricorn men make great leaders, as well as successful business owners.
The Capricorn man loves taking control of every aspect of his life (and yes, that means the bedroom too). He’s definitely the dominant type, but at the same time, knows how to show respect when it needs to be given.
Do Capricorns Like Their Ego Stoked?
Capricorns certainly like having their egos stroked. You probably won’t have any trouble finding ways to whisper words that they want to hear, given the fact that Capricorn men tend to be full of accomplishments.
Just be careful that you don’t go too overboard when it comes to compliments and addressing their wins. Capricorn men love compliments, but they are also very cautious when it comes to being over-complimented. They can see this in a few ways:
- You secretly want something (you secretly want something).
- You might be trying to manipulate him (playing mind games).
The Capricorn man hates it when you play mind games with him. In fact, if you push too hard when it comes to stroking his ego online, the chances are higher that the Capricorn man might even block you, and that’s never a good sign.
Keep in mind that there are other options, aside from stroking a Capricorn man’s ego. You can always roll with the punches, or even better, you can help the Capricorn man to see that there are better options (aside from what he thinks).
How Do You Break A Capricorn Man’s Ego? Proceed With Caution
Now when it comes to the goal of helping a Capricorn man, the goal should never be destroying his ego. If you try to destroy his ego, there’s a good chance that he will see you as a threat.
This can lead to the Capricorn man ghosting you, or even worse which was mentioned above, completely blocking you from his life. No social media contact, no texting, and certainly no calling him. Not good.
It’s once been stated that you shouldn’t break someone’s ego. Rather instead, it’s much better to ascend up their ego. When done properly, you can have the Capricorn man seeing things from your point of view, instead of him always insisting that he is right.
Here are a few helpful steps when it comes to dealing with a Capricorn man, and his big ego.
1) Listen To What The Capricorn Man Has To Say
This is going to be the first step when it comes to helping the Capricorn man and fixing his ego. As easy as it is to think that listening is an easy task, it always doesn’t play out that way.
When listening to what the Capricorn man has to say, actually engage when you are listening to him. Heck, he will even show you more respect when you give him the attention that he craves. When listening to him:
- Keep great eye contact with him (if it’s in person).
- Don’t be doing anything else while he is talking (don’t play on your phone).
- Avoid cutting in until he has finished saying what he needs to say (even if it’s hard to do).
In order to help the Capricorn man, it’s very important that you give him the stage (so to speak) so that he can say everything that he needs to. Upon doing so, he will gladly let you say whatever it is that’s on your mind.
2) Respond With Recommendations For The Capricorn Man
When it comes to the Capricorn man’s ego, sometimes it’s hard to change direction. This is also because the Capricorn man loves following rules and doesn’t like any type of big change in his life. Remember, the Capricorn man loves being in control.
With that being said, it’s much easier to fly under the radar when you give helpful recommendations to the Capricorn man. If you try and force him to do something (especially when he doesn’t want to do it in the first place), then that’s when the shields go up.
Keep in mind that this isn’t something that is always going to change overnight. Just actively listening to the Capricorn man can work wonders when it comes to making changes to his step-by-step plans and rigid rules.
Capricorn Man’s Big Ego: Closing Words
The Capricorn man wants to be the king of the castle and will do whatever it takes to reach his ambitious goals. With everything that he’s accomplished, it’s now much easier to see why the Capricorn man can come along with a big ego.
Touching upon a few other reasons why Capricorn men have big egos:
- They are goal-driven.
- Capricorn men love hard work.
- They love being both dominant and in control.
At the end of the day, the more that a Capricorn man likes and respects you, the less you’ll have to deal with his ego. On the opposite side, when the Capricorn man puts up his defensive shield, then you can expect his big ego to rear its ugly head.
