drive and ambition
He is a perfectionist and has high standards for his own work. Riki Rachtman 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. Riki Rachtman strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and he becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Riki Rachtman 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, Riki Rachtman underestimates himself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Rachtman does apply himself diligently in a given area, he gradually gains self-confidence as he masters skills and develops expertise.
Riki Rachtman 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, Rachtman may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
He is a doer and an achiever. Energetic, courageous, and often impatient, Riki Rachtman will forge ahead with his plans regardless of the reservations of others. In fact, Rachtman often feels other people get in his way and he prefers to work on his own. Riki is active, assertive and rather competitive as well.
He is very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity and good will. Riki Rachtman notices these qualities (or the lack thereof) more quickly than others and brings them up frequently. He is philosophical about life and very perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of his own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious, metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.
Riki has noble aspirations and grand plans for himself. Combining personal goals with humanitarian concerns, philanthropy and an interest in social betterment, Riki Rachtman is likely to be quite successful and influential in his community. He is suited to expansive, lucrative enterprises.
His drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or eccentric to the more conservative people Riki knows. There may well be no security or safety net (no retirement pension, no insurance benefits) in the work Riki Rachtman is engaged in. He is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules and the like. Riki Rachtman should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs throughout his life. He may change courses often and try many different things.
In some ways Riki Rachtman may feel that he has little choice about his role in society. He is compelled either by unusual external circumstances or by an inner drive, to bring potentially dark, difficult, or taboo issues into public awareness. Riki delves into the hidden side of life - things which may have been purposefully concealed or repressed - and sheds light on them. Riki Rachtman could come into direct conflict with the authorities or powers-that-be as a result. He is apt to have extraordinary ambitions, and could also become overly zealous and fanatical.
Often Riki Rachtman feels like he is being pulled in two directions - what he needs to do to fulfill his long-range ambitions, and what he actually feels like doing. This may make it difficult for Riki to be constant and consistent in pursuing goals, career aims, etc.
Relationships with women, trying to satisfy family needs, or other emotional attachments sometimes also conflict. Often Riki Rachtman has to decide on one or another at a given time, rather than try to have both.
He is very adaptable, and because of his tactful, obliging and cordial manner, others like being around him. Riki Rachtman loves to be involved with associations or societies in the pursuit of common interests.
