drive and ambition
He is a perfectionist and has high standards for his own work. Michael Caine often feels that if he wants something done right he must do it himself, for others do not do as thorough a job as he does. Doing a task well is very important to him, and he may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Michael Caine strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and he becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Michael Caine can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that he will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that his efforts will simply not be good enough. He is usually modest and realistic in assessing what he can accomplish and, if anything, Michael Caine underestimates himself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Caine does apply himself diligently in a given area, he gradually gains self-confidence as he masters skills and develops expertise.
Michael Caine conserves his energy and paces himself so that he does not waste or diffuse his efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit his opportunities. In short, Caine may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
It is not easy for Michael Caine to show the world at large his angry or competitive side, but his family sees this side of him more often. Temper tantrums, tumultuous family relationships, or a great deal of competition between Caine and one or more of his relations, are likely. Michael Caine likes to be the one in charge in his home and he puts a lot of energy into making things go his way.
Michael Caine has a very active and fertile imagination and Caine's ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical and concrete. Michael Caine has a strong desire to act out his fantasies, dreams, visions and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Caine can express himself imaginatively are ideally suited to him. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Caine, and he needs to have some lofty dream or something grander than his own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes Caine may be confused about exactly how and where to direct his energy and he often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what he wants. Michael Caine has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength and fighting spirit to achieve his aims.
Caine impresses others with his strong individuality and his powerful personality. Michael Caine puts all of his energy into getting ahead and attaining his ambitions and feels no desire to demonstrate his abilities to anyone, but his work is likely to be noticed.

He is attracted to careers, which are somewhat unusual, creative, or avant-garde, and offer Michael Caine a maximum amount of freedom and independence. The nine-to-five routine is really not his cup of tea. Michael may make his living in diversified ways rather than by focusing on one specific area or talent, and he is happiest when he can create a place in the world for his unique combination of diverse talents and interests. Michael Caine finds it hard and unnatural to try to fit himself into a ready-made mold.
Caine may well have an unusual destiny or pivotal role to play in a drama that involves much more than his own personal ambitions and professional aims. This could involve uncovering secrets, bringing deception, cruelty, or injustice to light, or making fundamental changes in a given field. Michael's work may also involve life and death issues, crises and emergencies. Somewhere along the way, fate may force Caine's hand - and it may require some self-sacrifice on his part. On the other hand, his real work may be rather subtle - a quiet transformation of a particular area or field. Michael Caine is destined for in-depth work.
