drive and ambition
Herschel Savage seesaws between being too pushy, confrontational and insistent on doing things his way, and being too eager to please, without a clear, definite goal of his own. Herschel Savage strives for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. He may feel frustrated at times that he cannot simply do what HE wants and that he must always accommodate the needs and desires of others. Or he may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive manner if he does not have the support and approval of other people. Either way, he is not a loner. Herschel Savage achieves his goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player.

He is fiercely individualistic and independent, self-willed and intolerant of restraints and restrictions imposed by others.
