The dominant Gemini personality trait is not duplicity nor even adaptability. It’s thought speed.
Whatever the cognitive destination, Geminis get there before you do. Your “I just heard about this.” is their Seven Hours Ago. Your Tomorrow is their Yesterday. Their renowned enigmatic smile is often because they’re sick of repeating “I heard it already.”
They’re Meme Queens and Kings. Sometimes it seems as if Geminis are the internet, so swift is their uptake of fresh info and breaking news. And before the internet, they were the grapevine.
They are expert at speed-reading wordy documents or articles and extracting the pertinent point. That point is then put into a broader matrix for future reference. The fine print? That’s what Virgos are for. A related Gemini personality trait is their ability to more or less astral travel when having to hear outdated information or something they know already.
They Don’t Need You To Finish Your Sentence
People get annoyed when Geminis rapid-scan people as well. They don’t need you to finish your sentence. They quickly parse your presenting data, auto-complete your thought/statement, grab the headline or a pull quote and slam it into a cultural context.
It can seem insensitive but it’s not really. A Gemini comparing your drinking problem or strange relationship to those of Britney Spears or a Game Of Thrones star is not being uncaring. And if they transmit the information, it’s not malicious. They’re Mutable Air, like the wind. Wind, by definition, is always moving. They’re breezy no matter what the subject matter.
They’re Breezy No Matter What The Subject Matter
Their consciousness does not allow for judgment and nor can you guilt a Gemini. Try if you like but they’ll turn it into a meme or an amusing aside. They don’t just collect info and skim-read things; Geminis make fantastic neural leaps.
When you’re talking to someone who effortlessly segues from their sympathy for Sharpay on High School Musical to international diplomatic policy, you know you’re talking to a Gemini. They know that Aesop’s fable about the Hare and Tortoise was propaganda, spread by the slow.
Really, the fastest way to wow a Gemini is to tell them something they don’t know already. But keep it concise. Long-winded explanations mess with their consciousness.
