drive and ambition
Frank Capra avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. His ego drive is not very dominant and Capra is not especially ambitious or eager to push his way to the top. He may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Frank Capra will really fight is when he senses that his loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case he is a fierce defender. Frank Capra has a very strong protective side. He acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone he perceives as threatening to Frank's home or family. However, Frank Capra will rarely initiate a confrontation. His goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
He is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. Frank Capra is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. His energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in his home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping Capra to achieve his goals and desires.
Capra plays vigorously and enjoys competitive games and physical rough-and-tumble activities. Athletics and/or physical activities have great appeal for him. Frank Capra takes the initiative in sports and also in romantic relationships: he is ardent in pursuing anything he desires.
Frank Capra has the gift of endurance and perseverance, as well as the willingness to work hard to achieve his objectives. Once he decides he wants something or makes a commitment, Frank Capra will do it "even if it takes forever". Self-discipline comes naturally to Frank and he instinctively realizes that any creative achievement is "10% inspiration, 90% perspiration". Capra chooses practical, realistic goals and pursues them step-by-step in a well-planned, orderly fashion. Frank Capra likes to concentrate on one thing at a time and he does a thorough job. He enjoys working in solitude, and often feels he does his best work when he is alone.
Although he is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Frank Capra finally loses patience he loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Frank has a daring and rebellious side as well:
He is dynamic, decisive and somewhat impulsive. Frank Capra responds quickly and spontaneously to challenges, and enjoys vigorous physical activities that require fast reflexes and a good sense of rhythm and timing. Frank has an abundance of energy and vitality, and a restless desire to see progress and change - he hates stagnation. He is individualistic and makes a good leader, spearheading new projects and inspiring others to act.
Frank Capra is apt to receive much publicity and popularity through his professional pursuits, for he has a way of winning the hearts and trust of many people. Frank has an instinct for what the masses of people will respond to emotionally, and this feeling-sense of what other people want enables him to succeed in sales, promotion, and so on. His career could also involve protecting and caring for people, and nurturing them in some capacity.
Gaining his professional objectives or advancing in his career often requires considerable sacrifice on Frank's part. Specifically, Frank Capra often feels that he must deny or at least compromise some very essential aspect of his in order to succeed professionally, protect his reputation, or what have you - and this is something Capra may or may not be willing to do. Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to him than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say Frank Capra will not progress or succeed, only that he will do it on his own terms.
