Adelina Patti takes both her work and her health very seriously, but she may demand so much of her at work that she compromise her health.

Adelina Patti is overly responsible or overly conscientious at work, so much so that she may not enjoy it at all.
Patti can also get overly involved in self-improvement or her health, and she tends to be a bit of a hypochondriac.
Once she decides what she wants to do, Adelina Patti will pursue her goal tenaciously and, if necessary, sacrifice a great deal for her deeply felt convictions. This trait tends to make Adelina feel a little out of step with others.
