drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Roberta Close often feels that if she wants something done right she must do it herself, for others do not do as thorough a job as she does. Doing a task well is very important to her, and she may labor over minute details that others would not bother with. Roberta Close strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Roberta Close can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that she will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that her efforts will simply not be good enough. She is usually modest and realistic in assessing what she can accomplish and, if anything, Roberta Close underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Close does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Roberta Close conserves her energy and paces herself so that she does not waste or diffuse her efforts. An unwillingness to take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit her opportunities. In short, Close may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
She has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Roberta Close is willing to dedicate a great deal of her energy and force to an important cause, and she will act decisively on her beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.

High-strung and often nervous and tense, Roberta finds it difficult to slow down, pace herself or relax. Roberta Close is always on the go. She is restless, daring and experimental.
Her competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Roberta Close can actually accomplish. Her energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very high, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
While Roberta Close is often charged with energy and inspired about what she wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to her as well. Her energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Unlike some who have hopes and fantasies, Close is a person who tries to live out these dreams, no matter how impractical or fantastic they seem. Roberta Close has a quixotic, idealistic streak. She may be more inspired to work for some higher cause than simply for her own personal achievement.
When Roberta Close wants something, she goes after it with passionate zeal and is sometimes so driven by her desire that she loses all objectivity.

Her nature tends to be rather impatient and combative. Often subjected to circumstances beyond her control, Roberta Close frequently feels frustrated and should avoid violent encounters and dangerous activities that could lead to accidents, if she is not careful.
To achieve her ambitions and long-range goals will require much stamina and self-reliance as well as a clearly defined strategy. Numerous setbacks, obstructions or delays can also be expected. A father figure, mentor, or authority in Close's life may withdraw support at a crucial time. However, this will not stop Roberta Close and may ultimately be a blessing in disguise.
