drive and ambition
Once Ethel Barrymore sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Barrymore pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Ethel labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Ethel Barrymore to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Ethel Barrymore has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Barrymore gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Ethel Barrymore needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her 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 she does. Ethel's stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Ethel Barrymore also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
Barrymore is attracted to feisty, dynamic, strong-willed people, and she seems to need a healthy dose of fireworks in her personal relationships. Ethel Barrymore can be very combative, or get involved with people who are. Ideally Ethel will join forces with people who are energetic and ambitious, but not too domineering or aggressive.
Ethel Barrymore has a rather cocky, confident, we-can-do-it attitude that people in her environment pick up on quite readily. Inspiring, motivating, and encouraging others to go out and do their very best is one of Ethel's innate gifts. Ethel Barrymore has faith in the power of action and boldness, and enjoys initiating new programs and projects.
Her competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Ethel Barrymore can actually accomplish. Her energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very high, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
Ethel Barrymore has a very active and fertile imagination and Barrymore's ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical and concrete. Ethel Barrymore has a strong desire to act out her fantasies, dreams, visions and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Barrymore can express herself imaginatively are ideally suited to her. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Barrymore, and she needs to have some lofty dream or something grander than her own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes Barrymore may be confused about exactly how and where to direct her energy and she often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what she wants. Ethel Barrymore has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength and fighting spirit to achieve her aims.
Exercising self-control could be quite difficult for Ethel Barrymore and she may often become involved in quarrels. Some of these disputes could end in violent behavior, if she is not careful. Being with others seems to put Ethel in a constant state of excitement.
Ethel Barrymore is likely to receive much publicity and popularity through her professional pursuits, for she has a way of winning the hearts and trust of many people. Ethel has an instinct for what the masses will respond to emotionally, and this sense of what other people want enables her to succeed in sales, promotion, and so on. Her career could also involve protecting and caring for people, and nurturing them in some capacity.
She is likely to be quite sensual and has a strong desire to become one in soul and body with the object of her affection. Ethel Barrymore may have a strong feeling that by herself she is not quite complete and that she needs someone else to make her whole.
Her disposition could seem a bit strange to others and Barrymore has a tendency to lose herself in illusions. Ethel Barrymore has a very dreamy nature and is inclined to have erotic and sexual fantasies.
