drive and ambition
Once Imelda Chiappa sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Chiappa pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Imelda labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Imelda Chiappa to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Imelda Chiappa has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Chiappa gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Imelda Chiappa needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her efforts, and cannot be content with only intangible rewards (such as having a good time, learning, or spiritual enrichment). Material well-being and security is also a large factor in determining what she does. Imelda's stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Imelda Chiappa also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
Imelda Chiappa often buys things on impulse and she can be reckless with her material resources and money. Imelda has certain possessions that she is extremely attached to and possessive of.
She is dynamic, decisive and somewhat impulsive. Imelda Chiappa responds quickly and spontaneously to challenges, and enjoys vigorous physical activities that require fast reflexes and a good sense of rhythm and timing. Imelda has an abundance of energy and vitality, and a restless desire to see progress and change - she hates stagnation. She is individualistic and makes a good leader, spearheading new projects and inspiring others to act.
While Imelda Chiappa is often charged with energy and inspired about what she wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to her as well. Her energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Unless she has a goal that transcends merely personal gain, Imelda Chiappa is apt to become deeply discontented, aimless and uncertain of her direction in life. At her best, Imelda Chiappa will work or fight for a greater cause, and feel fulfilled through serving the greater good. However, should she lack the necessary focus, Chiappa could be confused and easily persuaded to do things that are either unethical or simply ineffectual.
Imelda Chiappa has a strong sense of mission and instinctively knows that in order to achieve anything great, one must eliminate superfluous activities and give oneself wholly to the task at hand. Her zeal, enthusiasm and clarity of purpose enable Imelda Chiappa to succeed and to achieve whatever she sets her mind to. Imelda Chiappa has a strong will, but is usually quiet and understated by nature.
Her drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or eccentric to the more conservative people Imelda knows. There may well be no security or safety net (no retirement pension, no insurance benefits) in the work Imelda Chiappa is engaged in. She is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules and the like. Imelda Chiappa should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs throughout her life. She may change courses often and try many different things.
In some ways Imelda Chiappa may feel that she has little choice about her role in society. She is compelled either by unusual external circumstances or by an inner drive, to bring potentially dark, difficult, or taboo issues into public awareness. Imelda delves into the hidden side of life - things which may have been purposefully concealed or repressed - and sheds light on them. Imelda Chiappa could come into direct conflict with the authorities or powers-that-be as a result. She is apt to have extraordinary ambitions, and could also become overly zealous and fanatical.
Achieving her professional objectives or advancing in her career often requires considerable sacrifice on Imelda's part. Specifically, Imelda Chiappa often feels that she must deny or at least compromise some very essential aspect of her in order to succeed professionally, protect her reputation, or what have you - and this is something Chiappa may or may not be willing to do. Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to her than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say Imelda Chiappa will not progress or succeed, only that she will do it on her own terms.
Chiappa can be rather antagonistic toward those in authority. Even without realizing it, she may convey this attitude and be threatening to those in power. Thus, however well meaning Imelda Chiappa is, she may find that her initiatives or projects are met with little favor. Working independently might be Imelda's best option.
