There seems to be some confusion about Capricorns, at least in the perspective of external fulfillment, like money, etc. Capricorns are focused on success or succeeding and doing things well, and having higher markers than many others. Note, they are the goat who wants to get to the summit. Others interpret that as being money oriented or competitive as endurance can bring success, but often not in the way others can understand, so they tend to label.
I always think of the "Tortoise and the Hare" story, and Capricorns are the tortoise. That is confusing to others, how one can latently be honing themselves or their focus, and those who are blind sided and perhaps even a bit ego centered (as the hare represents), interpret the outcome as us being competitive and materialistic.
Many Capricorns are driven by an internal barometer, similar in perfection to Virgo's. On that same vein, procrastination can come up as the goal is so high or there are so many things to do well, that it becomes a bit daunting. This reminds me of Virgo's perfectionism being so overwhelming, they can only master it in one area and sometimes do nothing, as it can't all be done perfectly.
They say that Scorpio's are those who can rise to spiritual heights, but some say that really Capricorns are even more so. I think this lies in why Capricorns are misunderstood. A heavy trip is laid on us as being dull, competitive and materialistic as the world views success through external validation. Rather, I think Capricorns are about what really counts, and if their focus on service brings them success through their objectivity and endurance, the judgment of them becomes one of confusion for a Capricorn.
Just as people can judge or bully others (think of your school years), it is because something within them is threatened by another having something they either don't have, don't understand, or are threatened by. Capricorns are also more sensitive than many realize, typically with the analogy of their cool reserve but with the bedroom door closed, their deep feelings and passion comes out. That sensitivity can be wounded and over compensated for by these perspectives, so one apologizes for their innate nature.
I see many Capricorns, and here in this forum, expressing come confusion over this same area. Frankly, it isn't about us, it is about them. Many enlightened beings have incarnated as Capricorns. It isn't that anyone is better, but this sign was chosen for you to be incarnated in, and is a great gift, as on some level of your being'ness or expression, the bar was set higher. You came to accomplish a lot in this lifetime, and that is on many levels.
Just get on with it, whether it is contemplating your navel while sitting on your sofa, or out saving the world. There is an inner passion you have, that others may not get and they don't have to for you to succeed. Success is about intangible things (not material things), and the joy of the journey. You came to make a difference, so just get on with it.
