Leo Burnett strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and he becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Leo Burnett can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that he will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that his efforts will simply not be good enough. He is usually modest and realistic in assessing what he can accomplish and, if anything, Leo Burnett underestimates himself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Burnett does apply himself diligently in a given area, he gradually gains self-confidence as he masters skills and develops expertise.
Leo Burnett conserves his energy and paces himself so that he does not waste or diffuse his efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit his opportunities. In short, Burnett may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.

His professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Leo Burnett to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Leo is apt to have more of a spiritual vocation or calling.

On the other hand, Leo Burnett may simply be confused and seemingly not ambitious at all in the professional realm.
