drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Inger Stevens often feels that if she wants something done right she must do it herself, for others do not do as thorough a job as she does. Doing a task well is very important to her, and she may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Inger Stevens strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Inger Stevens can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that she will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that her efforts will simply not be good enough. She is usually modest and realistic in assessing what she can accomplish and, if anything, Inger Stevens underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Stevens does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Inger Stevens conserves her energy and paces herself so that she does not waste or diffuse her efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit her opportunities. In short, Stevens may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Stevens plays vigorously and enjoys competitive games and physical rough-and-tumble activities. Athletics and/or physical activities have great appeal for her. Inger Stevens takes the initiative in sports and also in romantic relationships: she is ardent in pursuing anything she desires.
Inger Stevens has a rather cocky, confident, we-can-do-it attitude that people in her environment pick up on quite readily. Inspiring, motivating, and encouraging others to go out and do their very best is one of Inger's innate gifts. Inger Stevens has faith in the power of action and boldness, and enjoys initiating new programs and projects.
She is dynamic, decisive and somewhat impulsive. Inger Stevens responds quickly and spontaneously to challenges, and enjoys vigorous physical activities that require fast reflexes and a good sense of rhythm and timing. Inger 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.
Deep, compelling drives that Inger Stevens does not entirely understand are likely to be the source of her rather extraordinary ambitions. She may find that a drive for dominance, power and control stem from the rather problematic and intense relationship Inger had with one or both of her parents. If Inger Stevens is willing to delve deeply into her own fears and inner life and clear away much of the conditioning of her earliest years, she will indeed discover tremendous inner resources which can be used to fuel her rise in the world.
Inger Stevens really wants to leave her mark on the world in some way, to achieve stature and recognition for her contributions, and she is not willing to take a back seat - at least not for very long. In order to achieve her aims, though, Inger Stevens will have to compromise and "give" more than she may be willing to. Thus, conflicts with others, particularly important men in her life, may arise. To accomplish her goals, Inger may have to set aside some of her self-centeredness, and learn from these men! However, Inger Stevens may also be required at some point to make a break in order to hold her own and fulfill her own destiny.
Inger has grand aspirations and may be inordinately ambitious at times. In other words, she is liable to be discontent with small successes and to feel like a failure unless she achieves extraordinary things. Inger Stevens should avoid get-rich-quick schemes that promise tremendous returns in return for little energy expenditure. Even if they do seem to succeed, Stevens' ideals and values could be compromised.
Her drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or eccentric to the more conservative people Inger knows. There may well be no security or safety net (no retirement pension, no insurance benefits) in the work Inger Stevens is engaged in. She is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules and the like. Inger Stevens should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs throughout her life. She may change courses often and try many different things.
Stevens 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 Inger Stevens is, she may find that her initiatives or projects are met with little favor. Working independently might be Inger's best option.
She is a bit restless and always seems to be in motion. Inger Stevens probably had the desire to go her own way early in life, wanting to learn from her own mistakes and experiences. Her plans for the future are far-reaching and Inger Stevens may choose an unusual career.
