drive and ambition
Once Scout Taylor-Compton sets her mind on a goal, her dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary. Taylor-Compton pursues her ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like Aesop's tortoise, Scout labors patiently and steadfastly until she achieves what she wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. She is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and she often shoulders more of the workload than her co-workers, usually without complaint. She often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. She prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or routine is very important to her success because once she gets started in a certain direction, it is easy for Scout Taylor-Compton to kept to that path. Getting started is more difficult. Scout Taylor-Compton has a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a good deal of inertia for her to overcome before Taylor-Compton gets going; but once she gets a momentum going, her energy level is strong and steady.
She is interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievements. Scout Taylor-Compton needs to have some tangible product or contribution to show for her efforts, and cannot be content with only intangible rewards (such as having a good time, learning, or spiritual enrichment). Material well-being and security is also a large factor in determining what she does. Scout's stamina and persistence are her greatest assets, but they can also work against her; she can get caught in a rut and refuse to seize new opportunities. Scout Taylor-Compton also tends to play it safe, and to limit herself as a result.
Asserting herself and being direct and forceful about what she wants is often very difficult for Scout. Though she may have a great deal of energy and drive, Scout Taylor-Compton lacks confidence or simply the desire to put herself and her interests first. On the positive side, Taylor-Compton can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for herself.
However, Scout Taylor-Compton denies her own desires and needs too much, and she is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage her finest efforts.
She is highly ambitious and will drive herself (and others) mercilessly when she wants to achieve something. Competition can become deadly serious and rather ugly where Taylor-Compton is concerned, as if her very life depended on winning or conquering. Her relationships with men may be especially fraught with conflict and power struggles. She is capable of tremendous effort but Scout Taylor-Compton must beware of burnout.
Positions of honor, affluence, influence and stature in her community can be hers. Scout Taylor-Compton feels that her destiny involves leadership or distinguishing herself in some way. Scout possesses an innate sense of greatness or importance, and a strong drive to achieve recognition for her talent. Scout Taylor-Compton should avoid excessive egotism and arrogant pride, for these could limit her opportunities.
Scout has grand aspirations and may be inordinately ambitious at times. In other words, she is liable to be discontent with small successes and to feel like a failure unless she achieves extraordinary things. Scout Taylor-Compton should avoid get-rich-quick schemes that promise tremendous returns in return for little energy expenditure. Even if they do seem to succeed, Taylor-Compton's ideals and values could be compromised.
She is attracted to careers, which are somewhat unusual, creative, or avant-garde, and offer Scout Taylor-Compton a maximum amount of freedom and independence. The nine-to-five routine is really not her cup of tea. Scout may make her living in diversified ways rather than by focusing on one specific area or talent, and she is happiest when she can create a place in the world for her unique combination of diverse talents and interests. Scout Taylor-Compton finds it hard and unnatural to try to fit herself into a ready-made mold.
