drive and ambition
Ayn Rand is extremely strong-willed and she pursues her goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. She is capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and she is very difficult to influence or sway once her mind is made up. When Ayn Rand wants something, Rand can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. She is very instinctive and does not always consciously know why she feels as strongly and deeply as she does.
She also tends to be secretive and unwilling to reveal her aims and intentions, and the intensity of her will and desire may not be apparent to others at first. However, Rand is very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. Ayn Rand often manipulates or forces her will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. She is not interested in confrontation but she is a formidable foe if she meets opposition or aggression from another. Ayn is courageous and has a rather primitive, raw side as well.
It is not easy for Ayn Rand to show the world at large her angry or competitive side, but her family sees this side of her more often. Temper tantrums, tumultuous family relationships, or a great deal of competition between Rand and one or more of her relations is likely. Ayn Rand likes to be the one in charge in her home and she puts a lot of energy into making it the way she wants it.
Rand dreams up creative solutions to problems and takes an imaginative, unusual approach to getting a job done. When difficulties arise Ayn Rand prefers to avoid conflict and confrontation in favor of more peaceful or subtle methods of resolving problems. Working to help others or for a cause that transcends her own narrow, personal interests is satisfying for Rand. Ayn Rand has an artistic flair and appreciates the colorful, unique, or strange.
She is industrious and diligent and has the power to establish herself in the world. She is very ambitious and tends to strive for public recognition. Although she may not be looking for trouble, Ayn Rand could easily get into disputes or quarrels.
Her nature tends to be very sensual and Rand may irresistibly be attracted to someone, even if she knows that she or she is bad for her. Ayn Rand also has a tendency toward jealousy and possessiveness in her relationships, and unwillingness to grant her partners freedom to be themselves.
Ayn has the patience and the stamina to realize her visions and bring them down to earth, a fine balance between hard work and realism, and a positive, hopeful spirit. Ayn Rand grows through following systems and plans, and taking one step at a time. Overnight success or instant enlightenment is not what Rand aims for. Her patient, well-balanced approach gives Ayn Rand credibility with many different types of people, and she is apt to gain an excellent reputation for being able to do big things without overreaching or becoming pretentious.
Rand dedicates herself wholeheartedly to a cause, makes a great deal of sacrifices and does away with superfluous activities and interests. Others find her approach too severe and are unwilling to go along with Ayn Rand under the difficult circumstances that she is willing to tolerate. Her determination and capacity for self-denial often help Rand get through the rough spots and achieve the goal she is aiming for.
Rand gains her objectives and ambitions in life through her personal charm, attractiveness, ability to please others visually and/or emotionally. A career in the arts or entertainment world is possible for Ayn Rand. Anything involving sales or promotion, particularly of beautiful or luxurious items, is an area she can succeed in. Vanity or indiscretions in relationships could lead Ayn Rand to her downfall.
Her drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or eccentric to the more conservative people Ayn knows. There may well be no security or safety net (no retirement pension, no insurance benefits) in the work Ayn Rand does. She is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules, and the like. Ayn Rand should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs in the course of her life. She may change course often, and try many different things.
Indecision and confusion over her ambitions or direction in life may hold Ayn back from achieving anything solid, especially in her early life. She is very much a dreamer and her interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals. Personal glory or accomplishment can never be Rand's sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be her calling, however. Or Ayn Rand could use her dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - the arts, music or entertainment field.
Her emotional life is likely to be strained and Ayn has a tendency to be a loner. Her outlook could be a bit one-sided and Ayn Rand may find it hard to compromise. It is difficult for her to maintain good give-and-take relationships.
Ayn has good foresight, a great sense of purpose in her work, and the ability to cope with any situation. Having a great vocabulary enables Rand to come up with the right words at the right time. Ayn Rand seems to speak with wisdom and others heed what she says.
Rand tends to be guided by inner vision and strong subconscious insight. She seems to have innate psychic talents and others may consider Ayn Rand a bit strange because of her interest in the occult and spiritual doctrines.
