This Is Your Most Annoying Habit on Instagram Story, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Instagram tends to bring out the worst in us, though we frame it as our best.

But no amount of Facetune can cover the fact that sometimes you're annoying on the social media platform. And by sometimes, we mean all the time. And by you, we mean all of us. No one is exempt here.

We're all irritating in our own ways, but each of us has that one nagging habit that really upsets our followers. Based on your zodiac sign, we know which habit that happens to be for you.

Aries (March 20 – April 19): You Have to Prove You're the Best at Everything

Being an Aries, you're extremely competitive by nature. You're the first sign in the zodiac, so you try to hold that title in everything you do. When it comes to IG Stories, you always have to prove you're the best in some way, shape or form. You'll try and lift the most at the gym, then challenge your followers to outdo you. You'll try to get the most compliments on your outfit when you're out with friends and post all about it. Everything you do becomes a competition, even if others don't necessarily know they're involved.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20): You Won't Stop Flaunting Your Money

As a sign drawn to the finer things in life, it's no wonder you can't stop posting about your wealth in every IG Story you share. Whether you're showcasing the latest designer handbag you've added to your collection or the lavish spa day you treated yourself to, there are no shortage of pics and vids being posted that highlight your status. Still, you do work incredibly hard to be where you are, so we'll allow it. But maybe make them a little less frequent? The poor peasants are starting to get upset, and we wouldn't want them to revolt.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20): You Don't Stop Talking

Once your mind is racing about a certain topic or idea, you'll post a billion videos discussing it with your followers. You were blessed with the gift of gab, which is often seen as a curse to your Insta followers. You've gone off on everything from why blue is the best color in the world to why we shouldn't have daylight saving time. While it is hysterical to hear you discuss these things, it can be a lot. Try to keep your stories to a minimum, because we promise plenty of people drop off after they get to your 10th one out of 600.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22): You Like to Get in Your Feelings

You're often a sentimental person, but you're not necessarily one to show it. You pretend you're tougher than you are, though the same can't be said when it comes to your Instagram Stories. You're not afraid to post a moody selfie with a caption like "Why even bother trying?" or "No one understands me," in hopes you'll get the attention you crave. While there's no shame in doing that, be sure to reach out to your friends if you need to talk. They'll offer you far superior words of encouragement than whoever slides into your DMs.


Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): You Repost Too Many Stories You're Featured In

As the shining star of the zodiac, you're always the center of attention wherever you go. Whether you're out on the town or roaming the halls at school, you've been known to capture someone's attention and be featured on their IG Story. When that happens, you tend to blast your spotlight on your own stories as if you have lesions of fans who simply adore you. Because of this, you never post an original story, because all of your "fans" do the work for you. This tends to irritate many, but you don't care. You know you're simply too fabulous for them.


Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): You Make Fun of Everyone

You're not one to be social on social media, Virgo. Heck, you're rarely ever social in real life. So when it comes to IG Stories, you don't quite understand their purpose. You find them annoying and tacky, which is why you use them to call people out and poke fun at those who take them so seriously. People have definitely gotten mad at you for doing so, but at least you're and equal opportunist jokester and make fun of everyone.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Every Story Contains a Poll

While you are a fairly balanced individual, being decisive is definitely something you're not. Even after you've made a decision you tend to go back on it. For you, your most annoying IG Story habit happens to be the fact that you have a poll in every story you post. You need other people's advice more than you'd like to admit, which is why you ask them to make your life decisions for you in the form of simple Insta Story polls. Just make a decision on your own and stick with it!


Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): You're Very Into Yourself

For someone who is so mysterious and private, you sure have no problem flaunting how beautiful you are on social media. Your stories are filled with sultry selfies and alluring boomerangs for all to feast their eyes on and drool over. You always have plenty of people sliding into your DMs after you post a story, but you rarely ever respond to any of them. You left them all on read and post more stories of you feeling your fantasy.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Your Stories Are Flooded With Your Travel Adventures

As you're the adventurer of the zodiac, it's no surprise that you're a pretty big traveler. You like to visit far off places as often as you can. When you do, you won't stop posting about it. Every time you're about to embark on a new trip, your IG Stories follow the same pattern—photo of your ticket, airplane selfie, video of you wheeling your bag through the terminal once you land, a clip of your Airbnb or hotel room, lots of food pics and plenty of videos of your daily adventures. You may think you're giving the people what they want, but we can really do without all the airport-related posts, thank you very much.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): You Offer Too Much Unwarranted Advice

You're arguably the most responsible sign in the zodiac who always somehow has it all together. We don't know how you do it. You tend to take on the role of being more of a parent in your life, whether that be with your friends, lovers or even siblings. You consider yourself an authority figure who always knows what to do, hence why you use your Insta Stories to offer unwarranted advice to all. You're truly the motivational speaker that no one asked for.


Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): You Try to Turn Everyone Into an Activist

Though many consider you aloof and a bit of a loner, you're actually a total humanitarian. In your free time, you're usually volunteering or doing something to make the world a better place for us all. This is why you tend to use your IG Stories to turn others into activists like yourself. You want them to see how important it is to care about the planet and the wellbeing of every single person living on it. It gets a little preachy and annoying, but we'll let it slide. You're just trying to save the world.


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 19): You Reply to Any and Every Story You Can

It doesn't matter whose story you find fascinating, you're not above reaching out to them to let them know you liked something about whatever they posted. Even if it's multiple stories from the same person, you'll send a response for every single one that tickled your fancy. You are absolutely shameless, but you mean well. Though others can sometimes get annoyed by this behavior, you really do feed their ego and they appreciate it more than you'll know. Still, maybe be a little more selective about the stories you respond to and why.
