drive and ambition
He is a perfectionist and has high standards for his own work. Quincy Jones 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. Quincy Jones strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and he becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Quincy Jones 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, Quincy Jones underestimates himself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Jones does apply himself diligently in a given area, he gradually gains self-confidence as he masters skills and develops expertise.
Quincy Jones 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, Jones may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
He is a team player and collaborates well with others who share his goals, ideals and intentions. Quincy Jones can coordinate group efforts and inspire people to work toward a common goal.
Team sports are also a lot of fun for Quincy, and he could be a leader, coach or director of any group endeavor.
Quincy Jones has a very active and fertile imagination and Jones' ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical and concrete. Quincy Jones has a strong desire to act out his fantasies, dreams, visions and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Jones can express himself imaginatively are ideally suited to him. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Jones, and he needs to have some lofty dream or something grander than his own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes Jones 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. Quincy Jones has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength and fighting spirit to achieve his aims.
He may have to overcome something in his background or personal past in order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Quincy Jones may feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of him or what he needs to do in order to progress versus what his old conditioning or his emotional predisposition would have him do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
