drive and ambition
He is a perfectionist and has high standards for his own work. Bob Hope 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. Bob Hope strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and he becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Bob Hope 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, Bob Hope underestimates himself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Hope does apply himself diligently in a given area, he gradually gains self-confidence as he masters skills and develops expertise.
Bob Hope 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, Hope 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. Bob Hope can coordinate group efforts and inspire people to work toward a shared goal.
Team sports are also a lot of fun for Bob, and he could be a leader, coach, or director of any group endeavor.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Bob and he must have something that stirs his imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate him. Bob Hope has a strong urge to act out his fantasies or to live his dream, and Bob Hope will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which Hope can express himself imaginatively are excellent for him.
Work that only serves his own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Bob Hope. He may lack the competitive edge, the fighting spirit, the "me first" attitude that is often required for material advancement and success. He also tends to either overestimate or underestimate his own power and abilities.
He is very inspirational, but may lack the energy to put his ideas into action. Bob Hope is inclined to feel tired a lot and may not have enough push to follow through. Hope can be rebellious at times, but he knows his limits.
His profession could involve physical strength and prowess, such as athletics, fire fighting, law enforcement, or the military. Bob Hope would never be happy in a quiet, sit-down job. Vigorous competition and strenuous work are undoubtedly key components of both what Bob Hope does and how he achieves his long-range goals.
