drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Alexandrine Zola often feels that if she wants something done right she must do it herself, for others do not do as thorough a job as she does. Doing a task well is very important to her, and she may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Alexandrine Zola strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Alexandrine Zola can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that she will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that her efforts will simply not be good enough. She is usually modest and realistic in assessing what she can accomplish and, if anything, Alexandrine Zola underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Zola does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Alexandrine Zola conserves her energy and paces herself so that she does not waste or diffuse her efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit her opportunities. In short, Zola may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
It is not easy for Alexandrine Zola to show the world at large her angry or competitive side, but her family sees this side of her more often.

Alexandrine Zola likes to be the one in charge in her home and she puts a lot of energy into making things go her way.
Alexandrine Zola seeks out risky and even dangerous activities, primarily for the excitement they provide.

She is a defiant and independent person who can go it alone if need be. Zola can be extremely bossy and pushy and is prone to sudden, erratic outbursts, especially when she has to wait for what she wants. Courage and a taste for the unorthodox or outrageous are Zola's strengths.
She is intensely willful and can create trouble for herself by rather unconsciously forging ahead, without realizing that she is trampling over people. Sometimes, if Alexandrine Zola cannot get what she wants directly, she will try to dominate, manipulate or seek power in a covert, subtle sort of way.
