drive and ambition
Margaret O'Brien is extremely strong-willed and she pursues her goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. She is capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and she is very difficult to influence or sway once her mind is made up. When Margaret O'Brien wants something, O'Brien can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. She is very instinctive and does not always consciously know why she feels as strongly and deeply as she does.
She also tends to be secretive and unwilling to reveal her aims and intentions, and the intensity of her will and desire may not initially be apparent to others. However, O'Brien is very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. Margaret O'Brien often manipulates or forces her will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. She is not interested in confrontation but she is a formidable foe if she encounters opposition or aggression. Margaret is courageous and has a rather primitive, raw side as well.
Margaret O'Brien 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 Margaret at times, and she pushes herself too hard. O'Brien can also be too demanding of the people she works with.
If her energy is not invested in a job or career, Margaret O'Brien can become fanatic about her health, and may exercise or "work out" vigorously and perhaps excessively.
Margaret O'Brien seeks out risky and even dangerous activities, primarily for the excitement they provide. Impulsive, daring, impatient and unconventional, Margaret O'Brien cannot sit still for very long and she has no capacity for "doing things as they have always been done". She is a defiant and independent person who can go it alone if need be. O'Brien can be extremely bossy and pushy and is prone to sudden, erratic outbursts, especially when she has to wait for what she wants. Courage and a taste for the unorthodox or outrageous are O'Brien's strengths.

Deep, compelling drives which Margaret O'Brien does not entirely understand are apt to be the source of her rather extraordinary ambitions.
