drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Mary Carey often feels that if she wants something done right she must do it herself, for others do not do as thorough a job as she does. Doing a task well is very important to her, and she may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Mary Carey strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Mary Carey can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that she will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that her efforts will simply not be good enough. She is usually modest and realistic in assessing what she can accomplish and, if anything, Mary Carey underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Carey does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Mary Carey conserves her energy and paces herself so that she does not waste or diffuse her efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit her opportunities. In short, Carey may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
She is a doer and an achiever. Energetic, courageous, and often impatient, Mary Carey will forge ahead with her plans regardless of the reservations of others. In fact, Carey often feels other people get in her way and she prefers to work on her own. Mary is active, assertive and rather competitive as well.
She is very serious about attaining her goals and feels that keeping her nose to the grindstone is the only way to do it. It is by working hard, keeping up her efforts and focusing on a single objective that Mary Carey achieves her aims in life. Mary exercises great self-control, even self-denial, in order to accomplish what she desires. She meets obstacles stoically and struggles patiently through difficult circumstances. Mary Carey feels that she must rely on herself alone and that she must shoulder all of the responsibility. She can be a harsh disciplinarian, expecting far too much of herself and others. Mary often holds herself back, doubting her own power and ability. She may feel that she meets great resistance whenever she tries to assert herself or take initiative, which is very frustrating to Carey. However, Mary Carey has the power to endure and a dogged determination to overcome all obstacles.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Mary and she must have something that stirs her imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate her. Mary Carey has a strong urge to act out her fantasies or to live her dream, and Mary Carey will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which Carey can express herself imaginatively are excellent for her.
Work that only serves her own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Mary Carey. She may lack the competitive edge, the fighting spirit, the "me first" attitude that is often required for material advancement and success. She also tends to either overestimate or underestimate her own power and abilities.
Mary Carey's capacity to tolerate tension and ambivalence, compromise, and endure discomfort helps her to confront the challenges and difficulties in life. Remaining steadfast in the midst of crisis or sudden change, as well as knowing when to wait and when to make necessary changes are manifestations of these skills. Mary's timing is usually good.
Mary has grand aspirations and may be inordinately ambitious at times. In other words, she is liable to be discontent with small successes and to feel like a failure unless she achieves extraordinary things. Mary Carey should avoid get-rich-quick schemes that promise tremendous returns in return for little energy expenditure. Even if they do seem to succeed, Carey's ideals and values could be compromised.
