drive and ambition
He is a perfectionist and has high standards for his own work. Alice Cooper often feels that if he wants something done right he must do it himself, for others do not do as thorough a job as he does. Doing a task well is very important to him, and he may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Alice Cooper strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and he becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Alice Cooper can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that he will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that his efforts will simply not be good enough. He is usually modest and realistic in assessing what he can accomplish and, if anything, Alice Cooper underestimates himself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Cooper does apply himself diligently in a given area, he gradually gains self-confidence as he masters skills and develops expertise.
Alice Cooper conserves his energy and paces himself so that he does not waste or diffuse his efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit his opportunities. In short, Cooper may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
He is a team player and works well in collaboration with others who share his goals, ideals, and intentions. Alice Cooper can coordinate group efforts and inspire people to work toward a shared goal.
Team sports are also a lot of fun for Alice, and he could be a leader, coach, or director of any group endeavor.
He enjoys life and is capable of feeling and experiencing everything deeply. His sense of love and eroticism is strong and Alice Cooper has a fondness for children, whom he will treat tenderly and affectionately.
Alice Cooper has a good balance between idealism, optimism, and vision for the future on one hand and a realistic sense of what can actually be achieved on the other hand. His judgment and business sense are usually quite good. Alice possesses patience and the ability to accept limitation and frustration on the way to his goals.
Older, more experienced individuals or mentors are likely to play a significant and beneficial role in Alice's life.
In meeting his challenges and difficulties in life, Alice Cooper does have allies: his ability to tolerate tension and ambivalence, his ability to compromise, and a capacity to endure discomfort. Remaining steady in the midst of crisis or sudden change is an aspect of this, as well as knowing when to wait and when to make necessary changes. Alice's timing is usually good.
Indecision and confusion over his ambitions or direction in life may hold Alice back from achieving anything solid, especially in his early life. He is very much a dreamer and his interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals. Personal glory or accomplishment can never be Cooper's sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be his calling, however. Or Alice Cooper could use his dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - the arts, music or entertainment field.
Gaining his professional objectives or advancing in his career often requires considerable sacrifice on Alice's part. Specifically, Alice Cooper often feels that he must deny or at least compromise some very essential aspect of his in order to succeed professionally, protect his reputation, or what have you - and this is something Cooper may or may not be willing to do. Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to him than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say Alice Cooper will not progress or succeed, only that he will do it on his own terms.
