Virgos adapt to different people and situations by finding ways to make themselves useful. To hide their vulnerability, they focus attention on what they're doing rather than who they are. To deflect attention away from themselves, Virgos will also focus on other people by praising their talents and virtues, or by criticizing faulty behavior or personal imperfection.Virgoans are modest , reserved and practical. However, this does not detract them from engaging in lively discussions to express their thoughts and ideas. They are hard workers inclined toward efficiency and little tolerance for nonsense. They can focus on the smallest of details in both their conversations and this causes them to miss the big picture. Because of their penchant for perfection, they can become indecisive, not knowing where is 'good enough' and elevated nervous energy drives them into a fit of worry. Many relationships are damaged or lost when Virgo can't control the urge to criticize and complain.

Before leaving the subject here's the traits common to the Earth Signs of which Virgo is one
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) are usually solid and dependable, just as the ground beneath us. They are gifted at manifestation in the concrete world and take pleasure in finding useful purposes for everything. Earth signs are natural recyclers--they deplore wasted resources of any kind. The disadvantage of Earth signs is that too often attention is focused on material production. They can become caught in repetitive ruts, forgetting to use their imagination. Earths frequently attract fire signs into their lives to provide an element of excitement and change. But then, of course, the Earths must deal with anxiety over what the more unpredictable fires might do next. The dance of life continues.
