drive and ambition
Ingmar Bergman 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. Ingmar Bergman 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. Ingmar Bergman achieves his goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player. He is very concerned with the concept of fairness and becomes quite indignant and vocal if he senses someone is being taken advantage of. Ingmar Bergman avoids extremism and favors a balanced, moderate approach to living. He is unlikely to push himself too hard or to become fanatically driven to reach his goals.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is very often difficult for Ingmar. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Ingmar Bergman lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. Positively, Bergman can be very unselfish, working more on behalf of others rather than for himself.
However, Ingmar Bergman denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
Ingmar Bergman has a powerful will and when he wants something, he pursues it passionately and relentlessly until he achieves it. He may be so driven by his desire that he loses all objectivity. Ingmar Bergman often becomes compulsive, even obsessed, with doing or achieving something, no matter what the costs or how hard he must work for it. His forcefulness may be veiled or subtle, for often Bergman does not reveal his real aims and intentions to others until they cross him. Intense power struggles and relationships with a strong dominance/submissiveness theme are likely to erupt. Ingmar Bergman has enormous energy reserves, and is capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement if he uses his energies for constructive purposes.
Language, words, communication, networking, clarity of speech or writing, being a messenger or go-between - these are key features in his career, as well as how Ingmar Bergman goes about achieving his goals and ambitions. "Work smarter, not harder" is Bergman's motto.
His attunement to the intangible or unseen world is very strong. Thus, Ingmar's drive and ambitions in life are apt to be colored by his subtle awareness, his mystical or intuitive sensitivity. Imagination, "make believe", creative fantasy, and the ability to visualize may be aspects of his career, also. Ingmar Bergman has the ability to "channel" healing or inspirational messages.
His profession could involve physical strength and prowess, such as athletics, fire fighting, law enforcement, or the military. Ingmar Bergman would never be happy in a quiet, sit-down job. Vigorous competition and strenuous work are undoubtedly key components of both what Ingmar Bergman does and how he achieves his long-range goals.
His inner life tends to be full of imagination and Ingmar Bergman is likely to have far-reaching ideas and plans. Peace-loving and generous, he is very sharing in his relationships. But Ingmar Bergman could become the victim of unintentional slights.
