drive and ambition

Her enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable Emily Post to enlist the aid and support she needs for her projects. However, Emily Post sometimes promises more than she can actually achieve, because she is overly optimistic or pays insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
She also tends to get distracted and to have too many things going on at once.

Too often Emily Post falls short of what she could attain because she is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
Emily Post also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Emily's energy.

Emily Post feels frustrated in limited circumstances, and she will abandon secure and reasonably successful situations if they do not offer challenges and future growth potential.
