drive and ambition
Napoléon III has a warrior's attitude - decisive, courageous, and bold. Napoléon tends to always crave action, even when waiting for an opportune moment or not doing anything at all would actually be effective in the long-term. He absolutely cannot tolerate being passive or even patient about getting what he wants. Napoléon III feels that it is up to him to take the initiative and he pursues his goal or desire very aggressively.
He is also self-reliant, in that he does not depend on others to do things for him or help him along, and Napoléon III is often irritated when other people offer advice or direction. Cooperation rarely comes easily to him. He is willful and can be quite oblivious to others' desires or feelings when he is pursuing something he wants. He is highly competitive, enjoys a challenge or a good fight, and may be downright pugnacious at times. Abounding in energy and enthusiasm at the start of a new venture, Napoléon III needs a very positive response and encouragement in order to sustain his interest throughout. If a project is not successful from the start, he is liable to drop it and move on to something else rather than rework or refine it. He has a strong desire to blaze new trails and put his own twist to things. Bonaparte can discover, invent and initiate new things, but he is impatient and may lack the stamina and perseverance needed see a long-term project through.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Napoléon III enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. He is quite forthright and sometimes tactless. Bonaparte can be very convincing about his point of view, but he is prone to a "hard-sell" approach that sometimes backfires. Challenging mental work is an apt venue for Napoléon's aggressive intellect.
Napoléon III seeks out risky and even dangerous activities, primarily for the excitement they provide. Impulsive, daring, impatient and unconventional, Napoléon III cannot sit still for very long and he has no capacity for "doing things as they have always been done". He is a defiant and independent person who can go it alone if need be. Bonaparte can be extremely bossy and pushy and is prone to sudden, erratic outbursts, especially when he has to wait for what he wants. Courage and a taste for the unorthodox or outrageous are Bonaparte's strengths.
He is likely to play a role of great responsibility in his life and Napoléon III takes his tasks very seriously, which places considerable burden on him as a result. He may have been unusually ambitious or mature at a tender age. Napoléon III progresses and attains his aspirations through dedication and perseverance, rather than fortune.
Napoléon III possesses great zeal and passion for achieving his aspirations in life, and can be something of a fanatic when he sets his sights on a goal. Napoléon could do research work, psychological investigation, even detective work - anything that involves delving beneath the surface for hidden elements. A great love of mystery and exploring the unknown fuels many of Napoléon's personal ambitions.
