His practical nature gives Karl Abraham the capacity to be very successful in business. Sometimes, however, Abraham holds to his own views too obstinately and dogmatically, causing him to limit his possibilities and overlook opportunities.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Abraham's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
