drive and ambition
Pablo Picasso avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition, and personal power. His ego drive is not very strong and Picasso is not especially ambitious or eager to push his way to the top. He may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Pablo Picasso will really fight is when he feels his loved ones, or something dear to him, is being harmed, for then he is a fierce defender. Pablo Picasso has a very strong protective side. He acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone he perceives as threatening to Pablo's home or family. However, Pablo Picasso will rarely initiate a confrontation. His goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
He is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. Pablo Picasso is very touchy, irritable, and difficult to live with when there are many demands or tensions at work. His energy level is inconstant and is very much dependent upon the emotional harmony (or lack of it) in his home. A supportive partner is of great benefit to Picasso in helping him to achieve his goals and desires.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is very often difficult for Pablo. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Pablo Picasso lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. Positively, Picasso can be very unselfish, working more on behalf of others rather than for himself.
However, Pablo Picasso denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
Conscientious, responsible, and serious about his work, Pablo Picasso accomplishes a great deal through his dedication. He is the person in the office or company who follows through, quietly sustains the effort, and keeps on going in spite of tedium, setbacks, or dry spells. This is often the key to Pablo's success. However, Pablo Picasso is humble about his accomplishments and contributions, and may thus not receive the recognition or recompense that he deserves.
Unlike some who have hopes and fantasies, Picasso is a person who tries to live out these dreams, no matter how impractical or fantastic they seem. Pablo Picasso has a quixotic, idealistic streak. He may be more inspired to work for some higher cause than simply for his own personal achievement.
He may be able to sustain a great deal of tension over a long period of time, but then Pablo Picasso suddenly releases it by taking unexpected and very radical actions. Picasso is not above challenging others for a decisive fight!
Pablo Picasso has a tendency to say things which unintentionally put off those in a position to advance his career and professional ambitions. Perhaps it is not what Pablo says, but the manner in which he does so, or the timing. At times Pablo Picasso is apt to feels that he must stifle certain thoughts and opinions in order to succeed in reaching his goals. Mostly, though, Picasso will need to be shrewd, tactical, and conscious of how his words will affect his listeners.
