drive and ambition
He is a perfectionist and has high standards for his own work. Evel Knievel often feels that if he wants something done right he must do it himself, for others do not do as thorough a job as he does. Doing a task well is very important to him, and he may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Evel Knievel strives for accuracy, efficiency, and precision, and he becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Evel Knievel can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that he will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that his efforts will simply not be good enough. He is usually modest and realistic in assessing what he can accomplish and, if anything, Evel Knievel underestimates himself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Knievel does apply himself diligently in some area, he gradually gains self-confidence as he master skills and develop expertise.
Evel Knievel conserves his energy and paces himself so that he does not waste or diffuse his efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit his opportunities. In short, Knievel may not aim high enough and settle for too little in life.
Knievel is attracted to feisty, dynamic, strong-willed people, and he seems to need a lot of fireworks in his personal relationships. Evel Knievel can be very combative, or get involved with people who are. Ideally Evel will join with people who are energetic and ambitious, but not too domineering or aggressive.
While Evel Knievel enjoys challenging himself to extend his abilities or try new activities, he is apt to bite off more than he can chew. Failures or accidents due to overestimating his prowess or capacities and being overly eager and poorly prepared, may result. Fortunately these disappointments or blunders do not dampen Evel's spirits or his ambitions permanently; he has a lot of resilience and optimism. Most likely Evel Knievel will need to develop his physical coordination and sense of timing in order to do some of the activities he dreams of doing.
His competitive drive and big ambitions (commented upon earlier) are fueled upon by either strong spiritual idealism, or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Evel Knievel can actually accomplish. His energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very strong, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
Evel Knievel has a very active and fertile imagination and his ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical, and concrete. Evel Knievel has a strong desire to act out his fantasies, dreams, visions, and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Knievel can express himself imaginatively are excellent for him. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Evel, and he needs to have some big dream or something larger than his own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes he may be confused about exactly how and where to direct his energy and he often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what he wants. Evel Knievel has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength, and the fighting spirit to achieve his aims.
He is rebellious and confident that he can do his own thing and still be accepted by the world around him. Because he is a freedom-lover, Evel Knievel may find it difficult to relate to others and most of his relationships are likely to be very challenging.
He is inclined to be a tyrant and wants other people to submit to his wishes. In Evel's drive to gain power, he could be ruthless and brutal at times. On the other hand, Evel Knievel may have to struggle to resist being placed in someone else's hand and power.
Knievel gains his objectives and ambitions in life through his personal charm, attractiveness, ability to please others visually and/or emotionally. A career in the arts or entertainment world is possible for Evel Knievel. Anything involving sales or promotion, particularly of beautiful or luxurious items, is an area he can succeed in. Vanity or indiscretions in relationships could lead Evel Knievel to his downfall.
Evel Knievel possesses great zeal and passion for achieving his aspirations in life, and can be something of a fanatic when he sets his sights on a goal. Evel could do research work, psychological investigation, even detective work - anything that involves delving beneath the surface for hidden elements. A great love of mystery and exploring the unknown fuels many of Evel's personal ambitions.
Although Evel Knievel vigorously pursues his own interests, he can work together with others just as energetically. He is a fighter, a good colleague and a comrade in arms. Very active in the career world, Evel stands up for work and is willing to fight for it.
