Here are twenty fun and interesting facts about the Sagittarius zodiac sign.
#1. Sagittarius loves adventures.

#4. They conceal their emotions.
Sagittarians have a hard time showing their emotions to the world, particularly when they’re intense.

#5. They don’t commit easily.

#6. They hate drama and gossip.
Sagittarians prefer focusing on their life, goals, and achievements, rather than on other people’s.
They might listen to some gossip now and then, but for the most part, they stick to their life and let others live theirs; however, they see fit.
#7. Tell them they can’t do something, and they’ll do it.

They’re ambitious, they’re competitive, and they’ll take any challenge to demonstrate that it can be done.
#8. They’re very spontaneous.
While they’re ambitious and know when to work and when to play, Sagittarians can be very spontaneous, as they have a playful side and a lot of enthusiasm for life.

This creative and cerebral sign has an innate curiosity for the world. They love finding out how things –and people– work, and they’re always trying out new things just to see how it goes.
They love learning about a variety of subjects, some completely contradictory, and they’re always open to new experiences.
#10. They’re willing to take risks.

#11. They’re ruthless.
When wronged, angry Sagittarians won’t stop at anything to get their revenge.
They see no point in holding grudges, sure, but that doesn’t mean they don’t get back to people. It just means they do it quickly and without a second thought.

They understand that, while spontaneity keeps their life from being boring, a good plan allows them to have the freedom they crave.
#14. They don’t tolerate selfishness.
People often mistake Sagittarians lack of commitment as selfishness, but they couldn’t be more wrong.
Sagittarius cannot stand people who take and take without never giving, and that’s one of the biggest reasons they don’t commit unless they’re 100% certain it’s what they want.
This way, they can give freely and happily, without worrying about being selfish simply because they feel trapped.
Sagittarius loves giving, and they hate it when people don’t give in return.

Sagittarians are very observant and curious people, always paying attention to the world and its inhabitants.
Because of this, they’re great at reading people. They consciously and unconsciously pick up on non-verbal language, changes of tone, and other little signs that let them know how people feel about specific topics, scenarios, or even other people.
#17. They’re impatient.
This high-energy sign doesn’t like having to wait for long. They’re always looking after the next big thrill, and they move through life at breakneck speeds.
When things aren’t moving fast enough to their taste, they get restless and frustrated.
The one big exception to this? Relationships. They rarely are in any hurry when it comes to those.
#18. They’re tremendously independent.
