drive and ambition
Alanis Morissette avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition, and personal power. Her ego drive is not very strong and Morissette is not especially ambitious or eager to push her way to the top. She may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Alanis Morissette will really fight is when she feels her loved ones, or something dear to her, is being harmed, for then she is a fierce defender. Alanis Morissette has a very strong protective side. She acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone she perceives as threatening to Alanis' home or family. However, Alanis Morissette will rarely initiate a confrontation. Her goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
She is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. Alanis Morissette is very touchy, irritable, and difficult to live with when there are many demands or tensions at work. Her energy level is inconstant and is very much dependent upon the emotional harmony (or lack of it) in her home. A supportive partner is of great benefit to Morissette in helping her to achieve her goals and desires.
Asserting herself and being direct and forceful about what she wants is very often difficult for Alanis. Though she may have a great deal of energy and drive, Alanis Morissette lacks confidence or simply the desire to put herself and her interests first. Positively, Morissette can be very unselfish, working more on behalf of others rather than for herself.
However, Alanis Morissette denies her own desires and needs too much, and she is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage her finest efforts.
Intensely restless, dynamic, and energetic, she is always on the go. When Alanis Morissette wants something, she wants it NOW, and she acts decisively, impulsively, sometimes hastily and prematurely. Impatient, high-strung, and often nervous and tense, Alanis finds it difficult to slow down, pace herself, or relax. She is fiercely individualistic and independent, self-willed and intolerant of restraints and restrictions imposed by others. Alanis Morissette has a reckless disregard for authority and can be extremely rebellious. Cooperating with others is not her strong point! She is often brutally frank and abrupt with people, and can be quite impersonal when she is pursuing a desired goal. She may have an explosive temper when her will is blocked. Alanis Morissette has a superabundance of energy and she needs much personal freedom to do things in her own style and at her own pace.
Alanis Morissette puts her heart and soul into everything she does. She is very industrious and usually acts according the way she feels. Alanis Morissette learns through her emotions and it is important that she trust her feelings and her hunches.
In order to achieve her ambitions in life Alanis Morissette may well feels that she must make a significant break from her personal past, especially the influences of her childhood environment, her family relationships, or familial traditions. Morissette is apt to be the black sheep, or the one who left home and never really returned.
What Alanis Morissette wants to do in life may seem "off the wall" or "way out in left field" to some people.
