Her ego drive is not very dominant and Murdoch is not especially ambitious or eager to push her way to the top. She may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Iris Murdoch will really fight is when she senses that her loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case she is a fierce defender. Iris Murdoch has a very strong protective side. She acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone she perceives as threatening to Iris' home or family.

She is attracted to careers which are somewhat unusual, creative, or avant-garde, and which offer Iris Murdoch a maximum amount of freedom and independence.
