drive and ambition

Her ego drive is not very dominant and Thompson is not especially ambitious or eager to push her way to the top. She may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Emma Thompson will really fight is when she senses that her loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case she is a fierce defender. Emma Thompson has a very strong protective side. She acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone she perceives as threatening to Emma's home or family. However, Emma Thompson will rarely initiate a confrontation. Her goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
She is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. Emma Thompson is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. Her energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in her home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping Thompson to achieve her goals and desires.

While Emma Thompson 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 Emma's spirits or her ambitions permanently; she has a lot of resilience and optimism. Most likely Emma Thompson 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, Emma Thompson 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.
Emma Thompson struggles with feelings of discouragement, self-doubt, and the sense that life is a constant uphill battle. She is also prone to suppressing her feelings - especially aggressive or angry ones.
