People can be uptight for all sorts of reasons — from anxiety to superiority complexes. If you're curious how that relates to astrology, it may be interesting to know that a lot of the inner tensions that create highly-strung personalities can be understood by someone's sun sign. According to astrologers, there are some zodiac signs that are more likely to be uptight than others.
Sometimes, people may come across as uptight when they're particularly stressed. For others, being tightly-wound is more of a personality trait.
"We all have our moments when stress crosses our threshold of tolerance," astrologer Cindy Mckean, tells Bustle. "Some [people], however, tend to have a higher baseline of 'built-in' tension than others, making them appear uptight or high-strung. Knowing someone's sun sign might help you determine if the high-strung person you know means it personally of it's just part of their temperament." For certain zodiac signs, it's hard to shake these qualities. Whether it's due to being short-tempered, having racing thoughts, or being obsessed with organization, some personalities may be inclined to appear more wound up than others. While this can happen to anyone, of any zodiac sign, there are four signs who are associated with these traits the most.
