drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Julia Child 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. Julia Child strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Julia Child 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, Julia Child underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Child does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Julia Child 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, Child may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Child plays vigorously and enjoys competitive games and physical rough-and-tumble activities. Athletics and/or physical activities have great appeal for her. Julia Child takes the initiative in sports and also in romantic relationships: she is ardent in pursuing anything she desires.
Julia Child has a great talent for organizing projects and the ability to inspire others with her enthusiasm. Having the urge to achieve, Julia Child is capable of tremendous effort and uses all the energy at her disposal to gain success with her objectives.
Julia Child has a talent for putting fresh ideas and inspiration into practice. She is ready and willing to apply new ideas and methods, and she has a knack for gaining acceptance for a new idea and implementing it.
Child can be rather antagonistic toward those in authority. Even without realizing it, she may convey this attitude and she may well be threatening to those in power. Thus, however well-meaning Julia Child is, she may find her initiatives or projects meet with little favor. Working independently might be Julia's best option.
