drive and ambition
Once Edward Abbey sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Abbey pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Edward labors patiently and steadfastly until he achieves what he wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. He is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and he often shoulders more of the workload than his co-workers, usually without complaint. He often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. He prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to his success because once he gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Edward Abbey to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Edward Abbey has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before Abbey gets going; but once he gets a momentum going, his energy level is strong and steady.
He is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Edward Abbey needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for his efforts, and cannot be content with only intangible rewards (such as having a good time, learning, or spiritual enrichment). Material well-being and security is also a large factor in determining what he does. Edward's stamina and persistence are his greatest assets, but they can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Edward Abbey also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is often very difficult for Edward. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Edward Abbey lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. On the positive side, Abbey can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for himself.
However, Edward Abbey denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
His efforts to do something are likely to be half-hearted. Edward Abbey tends to get discouraged easily and may lack an incentive to work. His sexual drive also may be somewhat low and Abbey tends to be averse to physical exertion in general.
His imagination is great and Abbey tends to think with a purpose in mind. He is able to function despite a degree of uncertainty that colors his actions, and he is likely to have an alternate plan when matters do not progress the way Edward wants them to.
Edward Abbey is always trying to escape routine and has a strong desire for new experiences. Abbey may feel that the course of his life is oppressive and will use all the strength at his disposal to rebel against it.
Edward Abbey strives to be at one with others, but somehow is not able to synchronize his feelings or viewpoints with theirs. Feeling disappointed, Edward may prefer a life of seclusion, away from other people.
