She is often hypercritical and can be such a demanding perfectionist that she discourages herself or others from even attempting something that will not be done exactly the way Tautou knows it should be done.
She frequently over analyze or pick things apart mentally. Audrey Tautou may be something of a hypochondriac also. Audrey must learn that she does not have to rationally understand everything in order for it to be valid, and also to relax her unnecessarily high or strict standards.

Her development path lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, and developing technical and practical skills that will enable Audrey Tautou to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
