drive and ambition
O'Brien is proud and ambitious and he strives to excel, stand out and be recognized for who and what he is. Conan O'Brien has a very dominant ego and likes to be Number One. Conan finds it difficult to take orders from others or to stay in the background, and he hates being wrong; Conan O'Brien always insists that he is right!
He is forceful, strong, energetic, determined and highly competitive. Conan O'Brien plays hard, plays to win and does not give up easily. In fact, he sees life as a competitive sport or performance. Conan loves admiration and applause, and he has a strong sense of personal honor and integrity. Conan O'Brien tends to be very self-confident, even arrogant. Because of his self-confidence, Conan is able to accomplish a great deal, but if his confidence is ever undermined, Conan O'Brien becomes self-conscious, defensive and rather belligerent.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is often very difficult for Conan. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Conan O'Brien lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. On the positive side, O'Brien can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for himself.
However, Conan O'Brien denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Conan and he must have something that stirs his imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate him. Conan O'Brien has a strong urge to act out his fantasies or to live his dream, and Conan O'Brien will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which O'Brien can express himself imaginatively are excellent for him.
Work that only serves his own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Conan O'Brien. 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.
His drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or eccentric to the more conservative people Conan knows. There may well be no security or safety net (no retirement pension, no insurance benefits) in the work Conan O'Brien is engaged in. He is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules and the like. Conan O'Brien should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs throughout his life. He may change courses often and try many different things.
His emotional life is likely to be strained and Conan has a tendency to be a loner. His outlook could be a bit one-sided and Conan O'Brien may find it hard to compromise. It is difficult for him to maintain good give-and-take relationships.
He is very adaptable, and because of his tactful, obliging and cordial manner, others like being around him. Conan O'Brien loves to be involved with associations or societies in the pursuit of common interests.
O'Brien knows how to discipline himself and faces difficulties with great courage. It may take time, energy and dedication for Conan O'Brien to achieve his goals; and when he meets defeat, Conan rises above it and continues on his way.
Conan O'Brien tends to be somewhat pessimistic and may frequently feel frustrated and depressed. Others may try to hold Conan back from achieving his objectives, and success may come to him slowly but steadily.
