1. Taurus Traits Tend to Focus on Appearances
Taurus traits tend to focus on appearances
One of the biggest weaknesses of Taurus men is that they tend to focus on appearances. They tend to confuse the contents of the book with the cover of the book. Some people do not really have the luxury of time and money to truly know other people on a deeper level.
Taurus men tend to focus on appearances because they are often in a hurry. They are often impatient. They look at appearances as shorthand for true substance. They look at the things that they can see as an indicator for the things that they cannot see. You cannot see the character of a person. You cannot see the person’s ability to love, to trust, to build and to dream, you can only see what the person looks like and how the person behaves outside.
The Taurus man does not have a problem equating appearances with things that truly matter, like character. This is precisely why this willingness to equate outward appearances with deep personal truth is what gets the Taurus man in all sorts of trouble.
2. Taurus Men Get Too Caught Up In Material Things

In keeping with the Taurus man’s predisposition to focus on things that you can see and things that you can perceive, Taurus guys can be very materialistic.
When we say materialistic we do not just mean focusing too much on money or making money or focusing on the things money can buy, we are also talking about how they navigate the world in terms of values.
Taurus men tend to go to the other extreme, which is looking at the world from a purely materialist perspective that they have lost imagination. They are so fixated on the way things are that they have lost connection to their ability to imagine a better world. They have dreams of a better world but often are too enslaved to the way things currently are.
3. Taurus Men Confuse the Price Of Things With Real Value
It is not uncommon for Taurus men to give gifts and equate the emotional value of that gift with how much money they spent. In the same way, when they receive gifts, they tend to size up the value of the gift based on how much the gift costs. The emotional value or sentimental value of a gift often times escape them. They just focus on dollars and cents. This can really grate on friendship relationships and definitely romantic relationships. Taurus men are quite unimaginative in this respect, and tend to confuse the price of things with the value of things.
They do not always go hand in hand. Things that may cost a penny, might actually be valuable. Things that cost a lot of money may actually be, at the final analysis, completely worthless. Try telling that to a Taurus man and good luck with that!
4. Taurus Traits and Friendship
They tend to look at friends as allies
If you do not like to be used, if you do not like to be manipulated, then you need to keep your eyes peeled when dealing with male Taurus friends.
The reality is that, Taurus men are all about “you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours”.
In other words, the value of friendships turns around how useful those friendships are. Instead of looking at friends as friends, they tend to look at friends as allies. They tend to look at the world in terms of alliances. Can this alliance get me to where I need to go? Can this alliance get me what I want?
Friendships, emotional partnerships, they all have dollar sign, they all have a practical value to the Taurus male. If there is no use value, there is no use being in the relationship. That is a key downside to the Taurus male mind-set.
5. Taurus Men Neglect Their Emotional Lives
Since Taurus men tend to be so materialistic, it is not uncommon for them to truly be disconnected from their emotional life.
It is not uncommon to see a very wealthy Taurus man break down near the end of his life, or during a mid-life crisis, and question how he has been living up to that point.
If you are a Taurus male, you do not have to undergo such drastic changes. All you need to do is just pay attention to your emotional life.
You are worth more than the money you make. You are worth more than the degrees you have. For you to be a complete person, you have to pay attention to your emotional life, your spiritual life, your philosophical life.
You have to focus on the sense of meaning. You should focus on the meaning of your life. Once you pay attention as to why you do things, everything else will take care of themselves.
6. Your Strict Focus on Practicality Keeps You from Growing Spiritually
For human beings to be truly happy, they have to be truly developed. Human beings often follow a developmental schedule that starts with taking care of basic need first. Basic needs like sex, food, the ability to dominate others, are felt very early on in life. Many Taurus men get stuck at the basic levels. They either get stuck at the need to dominate other men or women.
7. Taurus Men Tend to Attract Superficial or Needy Women
Taurus men tend to attract superficial or needy women
The Achilles heel of a Taurus man is a vain and superficial woman. Women that place too much emphasis on how they look and how other people think of them, can be very draining to the Taurus man.
Unfortunately, they approach these women like moths to a flame. They cannot even recognize these troubling signs.
This is why it is not uncommon for Taurus men to end up with gold diggers. They end up with women that abuse them, not just emotionally but also financially. This is one negative trait that you really need to get a handle on if you want to live a happy life.
Like other signs of the Zodiac that are dominated by Mars, Taurus traits and characteristics tend to be dominated by a need to move forward in life. Sometimes this can be at any cost and sometimes it can (and does) cause great harm to those around the Taurus male.
