drive and ambition
Melinda Gates avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. Her ego drive is not very dominant and Gates is not especially ambitious or eager to push her way to the top. She may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Melinda Gates will really fight is when she senses that her loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case she is a fierce defender. Melinda Gates has a very strong protective side. She acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone she perceives as threatening to Melinda's home or family. However, Melinda Gates will rarely initiate a confrontation. Her goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
She is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. Melinda Gates is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. Her energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in her home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping Gates to achieve her goals and desires.
Melinda Gates meets numerous challenges and possibly defeats in pursuit of her goals and desires, and her setbacks often occur because Melinda has been too rash or intent on working her own will regardless of the impact on others. Melinda Gates is intense and passionate, and simply does not know when to stop sometimes! Recklessness with others can be a problem for Gates.
She enjoys risky, exciting activities and cannot tolerate too much routine, tedium, or inactivity. Unless other factors in her chart suggest staying power and the ability to follow through, Melinda Gates may be the person who initiates a new venture but cannot happily participate in the ongoing, sustained effort it requires. "Independent" is Gates' middle name! Melinda Gates needs to be a totally free agent, to run her own show. Melinda likes to introduce new concepts to people, and then move on.
While Melinda Gates is often charged with energy and inspired about what she wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to her as well. Her energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Gates dreams up creative solutions to problems and takes an imaginative, unusual approach to getting a job done. When difficulties arise, Melinda Gates prefers to avoid conflict and confrontation in favor of more peaceful or subtle methods of resolving problems. Gates finds it satisfying to work in order to help others or for a cause that transcends her own narrow, personal interests. Melinda Gates has an artistic flair and appreciates the colorful, unique or strange.
When Melinda Gates wants something, she can be amazingly persistent and unrelenting, even a bit obsessed, although quiet about it. In fact Melinda may hide her deep purposes and intentions even from friends. Whenever she does a thing, it is done wholeheartedly and thoroughly - and if Melinda Gates does not want to do something that others wish her to do, somehow she will find a way out of it. Gates is strong, though subtle.
Indecision and confusion over her ambitions or direction in life may hold Melinda back from achieving anything solid, especially in her early life. She is very much a dreamer and her interests and inclinations may not translate very readily into concrete goals. Personal glory or accomplishment can never be Gates' sole motivation or drive in life. Ministering to others in some way may be her calling, however. Or Melinda Gates could use her dreamy, imaginative energies in creative ways - the arts, music or entertainment field.
She is mentally alert and can explain her position clearly and unambiguously so that others can understand it. Always ready for action, Melinda Gates has courage and determination and the ability to retaliate in the proper manner.
