She is definitely "upwardly mobile" in either a material or spiritual sense. Majel Barrett aims high and is not content with a mere quiet, secure existence. Majel likes to stretch her limits, see how far she can go and take risks. She is a positive thinker, expects success for herself, and is philosophical about failures. Barrett is flexible and she bounces back from disappointments rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea she wants to try. Her enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable Majel Barrett to enlist the aid and support she needs for her projects. However, Majel Barrett sometimes promises more than she can actually achieve, because she is overly optimistic or pays insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.
She also tends to get distracted and to have too many things going on at once. Although it is very difficult for her, there are times when Majel Barrett simply must cultivate commitment, perseverance and persistence in order to make her dreams and goals reality. Too often Majel Barrett falls short of what she could attain because she is unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.
Majel Barrett also enjoys competition and usually does not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel Majel's energy.
Majel Barrett expects to work hard for anything she accomplishes and she has no patience for people who do not pull their own weight. Work is a passion for Majel at times, and she pushes herself too hard. Barrett can also be too demanding of the people she works with.

She is enterprising, ambitious and has a strong desire to succeed in a big way. Forever on the lookout for new opportunities and promising new ventures, Majel Barrett is willing to take risks if she senses a winner. No matter how much Majel accomplishes, she never seems to be completely satisfied. Majel Barrett always feels that she can do more, and sets her sights on another goal. Majel Barrett feels frustrated in limited circumstances, and she will abandon secure and reasonably successful situations if they do not offer challenges and future growth potential.

Majel Barrett relishes healthy competition and feels that it spurs her on to even greater achievements.

Majel Barrett has the gift of endurance and perseverance, as well as the willingness to work hard to achieve her objectives. Once she decides she wants something or makes a commitment, Majel Barrett will do it "even if it takes forever".

Although she is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Majel Barrett finally loses patience she loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Majel has a daring and rebellious side as well:
Fits of temper and impatience, and a sudden, erratic sort of recklessness can all work very much against Majel Barrett, especially when she needs to be working cooperatively as part of a team or in a partnership. When she is upset or fired up about something, Majel often does things that are risky and outrageous. When out of balance, Barrett tends to be accident prone.
Her imagination is great and Barrett tends to think with a purpose in mind. She is able to function despite a degree of uncertainty that colors her actions, and she is likely to have an alternate plan when matters do not progress the way Majel wants them to.

Her professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Majel Barrett to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Majel is apt to have more of a spiritual vocation or calling. Healing, counseling, the ministry, music, art - or some combination thereof - may well be part of her role in life. On the other hand, Majel Barrett may simply be confused and seemingly not ambitious at all in the professional realm.
