drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Jayne Mansfield 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. Jayne Mansfield strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Jayne Mansfield 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, Jayne Mansfield underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Mansfield does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Jayne Mansfield 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, Mansfield may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Jayne Mansfield enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. She is quite forthright and sometimes tactless. Mansfield can be very convincing about her point of view, but she is prone to a "hard-sell" approach that sometimes backfires. Challenging mental work is an apt venue for Jayne's aggressive intellect.
Jayne Mansfield has a very active and fertile imagination and Mansfield's ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical and concrete. Jayne Mansfield has a strong desire to act out her fantasies, dreams, visions and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Mansfield can express herself imaginatively are ideally suited to her. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Mansfield, and she needs to have some lofty dream or something grander than her own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes Mansfield may be confused about exactly how and where to direct her energy and she often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what she wants. Jayne Mansfield has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength and fighting spirit to achieve her aims.
Mansfield may not feel like she has to work very hard or strive to achieve, either because she comes from a very comfortable background, or because inner contentment and satisfaction are more important to her than outward accomplishment. Jayne Mansfield could be quite successful in real estate, agriculture, or anything involving land.
