drive and ambition
Martin Scorsese is extremely strong-willed and he pursues his goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. He is capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and he is very difficult to influence or sway once his mind is made up. When Martin Scorsese wants something, Scorsese can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. He is very instinctive and does not always consciously know why he feels as strongly and deeply as he does.
He also tends to be secretive and unwilling to reveal his aims and intentions, and the intensity of his will and desire may not initially be apparent to others. However, Scorsese is very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. Martin Scorsese often manipulates or forces his will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. He is not interested in confrontation but he is a formidable foe if he encounters opposition or aggression. Martin is courageous and has a rather primitive, raw side as well.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Martin Scorsese enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. He is quite forthright and sometimes tactless. Scorsese can be very convincing about his point of view, but he is prone to a "hard-sell" approach which sometimes backfires. Challenging mental work is a good avenue for Martin's aggressive intellect.
Scorsese frequently meets a tremendous amount of resistance whenever he wants to assert himself in a decisive way, or do something just for himself. This resistance comes from within (in the form of self-doubt, fear, or a heavy sense of responsibility to others), as well as from practical and circumstantial limitations. Especially when initiating a project or acting independently, Martin Scorsese may tell himself that he is not really prepared, or that he is not good enough (yet), and he puts a lot of pressure on himself. Despite the obstacles, setbacks, or lack of support he encounters, Martin Scorsese can accomplish a lot in a patient, steady fashion. However, he is apt to aim too low, and not realize how much he is truly capable of.
Martin Scorsese should try to recognize that he does not have to justify his existence or prove his worth by his accomplishments.
Martin Scorsese has a powerful will and when he wants something, he pursues it passionately and relentlessly until he achieves it. He may be so driven by his desire that he loses all objectivity. Martin Scorsese often becomes compulsive, even obsessed, with doing or achieving something, no matter what the costs or how hard he must work for it. His forcefulness may be veiled or subtle, for often Scorsese does not reveal his real aims and intentions to others until they cross him.

A great deal of Scorsese's energy, attention, and fulfillment may be related to home, family, or fulfilling his heritage in some manner.
