drive and ambition
He is a perfectionist and has high standards for his own work. Gene Wilder 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. Gene Wilder strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and he becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Gene Wilder 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, Gene Wilder underestimates himself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Wilder does apply himself diligently in a given area, he gradually gains self-confidence as he masters skills and develops expertise.
Gene Wilder 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, Wilder may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Wilder plays vigorously and enjoys competitive games and physical rough-and-tumble activities. Athletics and/or physical activities have great appeal for him. Gene Wilder takes the initiative in sports and also in romantic relationships: he is ardent in pursuing anything he desires.
Gene Wilder has a positive, "can-do" attitude and he tackles life's challenges with relish. He is self-confident and has a strong will to succeed, to see how much he can do and how far he can go. No matter what Wilder accomplishes, he does not rest on his laurels. Gene wants to keep on going, to do even bigger things. He is proactive, enterprising and enthusiastic about new projects. He is not happy in situations that do not offer him challenges and the potential for future growth - no matter how secure or satisfactory they may seem in other respects. He enjoys competition, but Gene Wilder competes mostly with himself, to see how much of his vision and potential he can really achieve. He makes a good leader, inspiring courage and confidence in others. Gene Wilder usually enjoys good health and a high level of vitality.
Although enterprising and proactive, Gene Wilder is also capable of ample much self-discipline, patience and effort. He may swing from confidence and trust in the future to pessimism and doubt, when it comes to achieving his aims in life.
Wilder frequently meets a tremendous amount of resistance whenever he wants to assert himself in a decisive way or do something just for himself. This resistance stems from within (in the form of self-doubt, fear, or a heavy sense of responsibility toward others), as well as from practical and circumstantial limitations. Especially when initiating a project or acting independently, Gene Wilder may tell himself that he is not really prepared, or that he is not good enough (yet), and he puts a lot of pressure on himself. Despite the obstacles, setbacks or lack of support he encounters, Gene Wilder can accomplish a great deal with patience and perseverance. However, he is apt to aim too low and not realize how much he is truly capable of.
Gene Wilder should try to recognize that he does not have to justify his existence or prove his worth through his accomplishments.
He is likely to play a role of great responsibility in his life and Gene Wilder takes his tasks very seriously, which places considerable burden on him as a result. He may have been unusually ambitious or mature at a tender age. Gene Wilder progresses and attains his aspirations through dedication and perseverance, rather than fortune.
Happiness and fulfillment in Gene's career are likely because he gives his all to it and will not make the sorts of compromises that others feel compelled to make in order to succeed. Self-expression and being his own person are very important to Wilder.
Gene Wilder's father or another important man in his life is likely to be of tremendous help to him. His relationships with superiors and those in a position to boost his career are usually excellent.
Wilder can be rather antagonistic toward those in authority. Even without realizing it, he may convey this attitude and be threatening to those in power. Thus, however well meaning Gene Wilder is, he may find that his initiatives or projects are met with little favor. Working independently might be Gene's best option.
Gene very much wants to be in a position to be able to positively influence and help many people. However, he may believe that he has to sacrifice his idealism or convictions in order to achieve his ambitions. At times his desire for prominence, popularity or stature may make Gene Wilder do things that put him in a dubious position vis-à-vis his superiors.
