Francis Crick 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. Francis Crick strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and he becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Francis Crick 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, Francis Crick underestimates himself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Crick does apply himself diligently in a given area, he gradually gains self-confidence as he masters skills and develops expertise.
Francis Crick 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, Crick may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.

However, Francis Crick denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
