drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Betty Fussell 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. Betty Fussell strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Betty Fussell 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, Betty Fussell underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Fussell does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Betty Fussell 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, Fussell may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.

While Betty Fussell enjoys challenging herself to extend her abilities or try new activities, she is apt to bite off more than she can chew. Failures or accidents due to overestimating her prowess or capacities and being overly eager and poorly prepared, may result. Fortunately these disappointments or blunders do not dampen Betty's spirits or her ambitions permanently; she has a lot of resilience and optimism. Most likely Betty Fussell will need to develop her physical coordination and sense of timing in order to do some of the activities she dreams of doing.
Although enterprising and proactive, Betty Fussell is also capable of ample much self-discipline, patience and effort. She may swing from confidence and trust in the future to pessimism and doubt, when it comes to achieving her aims in life.
Betty Fussell works hard and patiently to achieve her objectives and perseveres in spite of difficulties and discouragement. When concentrating on a single, clearly defined goal, Betty is able to accomplish a great deal, but she often feels that the path is long and arduous, and that she must struggle on alone and shoulder the burden single-handedly.
She is capable of great self-control and self-denial and can be a hard taskmaster, expecting far too much of herself. She also tends to hold herself back and doubt her own power and ability. Betty Fussell feels that she meets with great resistance whenever she tries to assert herself or take initiative. Anger and frustration can be big problems for Betty Fussell, especially when she tries to work with other people or depend too much on others for support. Betty works best in solitude.
Although she is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Betty Fussell finally loses patience she loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Betty has a daring and rebellious side as well:
Fits of temper and impatience, and a sudden, erratic sort of recklessness can all work very much against Betty Fussell, especially when she needs to be working cooperatively as part of a team or in a partnership. When she is upset or fired up about something, Betty often does things that are risky and outrageous. When out of balance, Fussell tends to be accident prone.

Betty Fussell has a very active and fertile imagination and Fussell's ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical and concrete. Betty Fussell has a strong desire to act out her fantasies, dreams, visions and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Fussell can express herself imaginatively are ideally suited to her. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Fussell, and she needs to have some lofty dream or something grander than her own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes Fussell may be confused about exactly how and where to direct her energy and she often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what she wants. Betty Fussell has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength and fighting spirit to achieve her aims.
Betty Fussell 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.

To achieve her long-range goals and ambitions, the process must be interesting and mentally stimulating, as Fussell gets bored with work that is not challenging intellectually.

Her tongue or even her sense of humor can get Betty Fussell in trouble with superiors at times.
In some ways Betty Fussell may feels that she has little choice about her role in society. She is compelled either by unusual outer circumstances or by an inner drive, to bring things which may be dark, difficult, or taboo, into public awareness. Betty delves into the hidden side of life, things which may have been purposefully concealed or repressed, and brings these things to light. Betty Fussell could come into direct conflict with the authorities or powers-that-be as a result. She is apt to have extraordinary ambitions, and could also become overly zealous and fanatical.
