drive and ambition
Once Kim Philby sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. H.A.R. Philby pursues his ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Kim labors patiently and steadfastly until he achieves what he wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. He is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and he often shoulders more of the workload than his co-workers, usually without complaint. He often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. He prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to his success because once he gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Kim Philby to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Kim Philby has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for him to overcome before H.A.R. Philby gets going; but once he gets a momentum going, his energy level is strong and steady.
He is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Kim Philby needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for his efforts, and cannot be content with only intangible rewards (such as having a good time, learning, or spiritual enrichment). Material well-being and security is also a large factor in determining what he does. Kim's stamina and persistence are his greatest assets, but they can also work against him; he can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Kim Philby also tends to play it safe, and to limit himself as a result.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is very often difficult for Kim. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Kim Philby lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. Positively, H.A.R. Philby can be very unselfish, working more on behalf of others rather than for himself.
However, Kim Philby denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
He is dynamic, decisive and somewhat impulsive. Kim Philby responds quickly and spontaneously to challenges, and enjoys vigorous physical activities that require fast reflexes and a good sense of rhythm and timing. Kim has an abundance of energy and vitality, and a restless desire to see progress and change - he hates stagnation. He is individualistic and makes a good leader, spearheading new projects and inspiring others to act.
While Kim Philby is often charged with energy and inspired about what he wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to him as well. His energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Unlike some who have hopes and fantasies, H.A.R. Philby is a person who tries to live out these dreams, no matter how impractical or fantastic they seem. Kim Philby has a quixotic, idealistic streak. He may be more inspired to work for some higher cause than simply for his own personal achievement.
He makes no effort to hide his feelings and therefore gives others the impression of being moody. Home and family oriented, Kim Philby has strong relationships with his relatives. Kim wants to be in first place and is not afraid to let his voice be heard.
Kim Philby perseveres through numerous obstacles, frustrations, delays, and setbacks in order to attain his ambitions in life. Sometimes it may feel as if he is pushing a boulder uphill. Kim Philby should try to avoid bitterness or comparing his lot to others', as these could weaken his resolve.
