drive and ambition
He is serious about his ambitions, as well as disciplined, dedicated, and tenacious in pursuing his objectives. His drive and energy are directed toward practical material accomplishments and concrete results. Harpo Marx also strives to be in a position of authority and social influence; he enjoys being in command.
Harpo Marx is hard-working and capable of foregoing immediate comfort in order to achieve his long-range goals. Marx can easily become a workaholic and is very responsible and conscientious about doing a thorough job.
Realistic and pragmatic, he is an excellent strategist. Harpo Marx achieves success by formulating a conservative and workable plan and seeing it through. He is not a gambler when it comes to attaining his goals; Marx depends on his own efforts and perseverance rather than good fortune. Harpo Marx has a natural shrewdness and instinct for business or organizational management.
It is not easy for Harpo Marx to show the world at large his angry or competitive side, but his family sees this side of his more often. Temper tantrums, tumultuous family relationships, or a great deal of competition between Marx and one or more of his relations is likely. Harpo Marx likes to be the one in charge in his home and he puts a lot of energy into making it the way he wants it.
Marx 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 comes from within (in the form of self-doubt, fear, or a heavy sense of responsibility to others), as well as from practical and circumstantial limitations. Especially when initiating a project or acting independently, Harpo Marx 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, Harpo Marx can accomplish a lot in a patient, steady fashion. However, he is apt to aim too low, and not realize how much he is truly capable of.
Harpo Marx should try to recognize that he does not have to justify his existence or prove his worth by his accomplishments.
Although he is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Harpo Marx finally loses patience he loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Harpo has a daring and rebellious side as well:
Intensely restless, dynamic and energetic, he is always on the go. When Harpo Marx wants something, he wants it NOW, and he acts decisively and impulsively, albeit sometimes hastily and prematurely. Impatient, high-strung, and often nervous and tense, Harpo finds it difficult to slow down, pace himself or relax. He is fiercely individualistic and independent, self-willed and intolerant of restraints and restrictions imposed by others. Harpo Marx has a reckless disregard for authority and can be extremely rebellious. Cooperating with others is not Marx's strong point! He is often brutally frank and abrupt with people, and can be quite impersonal when he is pursuing a desired goal. He may demonstrate an explosive temper when his will is blocked. Harpo Marx has a superabundance of energy and he needs a great deal of personal freedom to do things in his own style and at his own pace.
He is an ambitious and vigorous supporter of associations and groups. He is a good team member and works hard for things that he believes in. Harpo Marx is also closely connected with his family and enjoys spending time with them.
In meeting his challenges and difficulties in life, Harpo Marx does have allies: his ability to tolerate tension and ambivalence, his ability to compromise, and a capacity to endure discomfort. Remaining steady in the midst of crisis or sudden change is an aspect of this, as well as knowing when to wait and when to make necessary changes. Harpo's timing is usually good.
His desire for a beautiful home, a comfortable, pleasing lifestyle, and time to relax and enjoy himself may well be the motivation for going out into the world and trying to achieve outward success. Harpo Marx may seesaw at times between his professional drives and desire for status, and the appeal of a rich personal life and home comforts.
Fluidity of speech and thought, and using intellectual gifts or communicative skills to achieve his ambitions in life are featured. Convincing, selling, persuading, reasoning, bringing ideas into public awareness are also part of Marx's professional life.
He is subject to frequent changes of mood and tends to lose courage quickly. Harpo Marx is inclined to vacillate between idealistic and materialistic objectives and could end up feeling confused and lost. Considering himself weak and ineffectual, Harpo then may no longer feel like advancing.
