The Virgo never expresses their needs, wants, desires, or expectations in a straightforward or clear manner. However, they nonetheless have them, and, like everyone else, they find it devastating when their demands or expectations are not met. Therefore, how can they stop that from happening? By using the classic passive-aggressive manipulation strategy.
They drop hints and make subtle allusions to what they desire, leading the other person to believe that they are the ones who had the original idea and that the Virgo had nothing to do with it. Without being specific about what their way is, they also have a tendency to pout when they are not successful in getting their way. As ranked by astrology, this places them among the zodiac signs that are the most manipulative.
