drive and ambition
She is a perfectionist and has high standards for her own work. Sophie Marceau 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. Sophie Marceau strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Sophie Marceau 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, Sophie Marceau underestimates herself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Marceau does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
Sophie Marceau 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, Marceau may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Asserting herself and being direct and forceful about what she wants is often very difficult for Sophie. Though she may have a great deal of energy and drive, Sophie Marceau lacks confidence or simply the desire to put herself and her interests first. On the positive side, Marceau can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for herself.
However, Sophie Marceau denies her own desires and needs too much, and she is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage her finest efforts.
Sophie Marceau struggles with feelings of discouragement, self-doubt, and the sense that life is a constant uphill battle. She is also prone to suppressing her feelings - especially aggressive or angry ones. This could lead to chronic resentment and bitterness, which actually undermines Marceau's goal far more than openly expressing her anger would.
On the positive side, Sophie Marceau is capable of immense patience, endurance and tireless effort in order to attain her goals and desires. Sophie Marceau seems to have to work very hard, and without much outside help. However, if she can avoid a negative attitude and keep "plugging along", Marceau will achieve something substantial. Moreover, she is much more effective when working for someone else.
Although she is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Sophie Marceau finally loses patience she loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Sophie has a daring and rebellious side as well:
Dynamic, self-willed, and fiercely independent, she has extraordinary drive and energy. When Sophie Marceau wants something, she wants it this very minute, and she acts quickly, impulsively and decisively. Her impatience inclines Sophie Marceau to be abrupt with people and reckless. She needs a great deal of personal freedom to do things in her own way and does not happily conform to schedules, rules or regimes imposed by others. She is intolerant of authority and can be very rebellious. She is very frank with others, sometimes brutally so. Sophie Marceau may have an explosive temper. High-strung and often nervous and tense, Sophie finds it difficult to slow down, pace herself or relax. Sophie Marceau is always on the go. She is restless, daring and experimental.
While Sophie Marceau 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, Marceau is a person who tries to live out these dreams, no matter how impractical or fantastic they may seem. Sophie Marceau has a quixotic, idealistic streak. She may be more inspired to work for a higher cause than simply for her own personal achievement.
When Sophie Marceau wants something, she goes after it with passionate zeal and is sometimes so driven by her desire that she loses all objectivity. Sophie gets so deeply involved in whatever she is pursuing that she becomes one-sided, even fanatical. Strong-willed and stubborn, Sophie Marceau insists on having her way no matter the cost. She is fascinated with power. Marceau often tries to overpower anything or anyone she perceives as an obstacle, if not physically, then by the force of her will. Marceau can be ruthless and impersonal when it comes to achieving her ambitions and goals in life. Sophie Marceau has enormous energy and is capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement. Marceau can also become a compulsive workaholic.
Her nature tends to be rather impatient and combative. Often subjected to circumstances beyond her control, Sophie Marceau frequently feels frustrated and should avoid violent encounters and dangerous activities that could lead to accidents, if she is not careful.
Sophie has great courage and relentless energy to do whatever she sets her mind to. But she is inclined to want her own way and has a tendency to manipulate others. Because of her foolhardy actions at times, Sophie Marceau is also prone to accidents.
She is very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity and good will. Sophie Marceau notices these qualities (or the lack thereof) more quickly than others and brings them up frequently. She is philosophical about life and very perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of her own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious, metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.
Marceau is intensely competitive and may engage in furious battles of will, numerous conflicts, and possible public controversy on the road toward meeting her objectives. Sophie Marceau may be drawn to activities that are dangerous - in the line of fire, so to speak. She puts herself on the line. Anger or recklessness could be her downfall.
Sophie Marceau perseveres through numerous obstacles, frustrations, delays, and setbacks in order to achieve her ambitions in life. Sometimes she may feel as if she were pushing a boulder uphill. Sophie Marceau should try to avoid bitterness or comparing her lot to that of others, as this could weaken her resolve.
Her drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or eccentric to the more conservative people Sophie knows. There may well be no security or safety net (no retirement pension, no insurance benefits) in the work Sophie Marceau is engaged in. She is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules and the like. Sophie Marceau should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs throughout her life. She may change courses often and try many different things.
In some ways Sophie Marceau may feel that she has little choice about her role in society. She is compelled either by unusual external circumstances or by an inner drive, to bring potentially dark, difficult, or taboo issues into public awareness. Sophie delves into the hidden side of life - things which may have been purposefully concealed or repressed - and sheds light on them. Sophie Marceau could come into direct conflict with the authorities or powers-that-be as a result. She is apt to have extraordinary ambitions, and could also become overly zealous and fanatical.
Achieving her professional objectives or advancing in her career often requires considerable sacrifice on Sophie's part. Specifically, Sophie Marceau often feels that she must deny or at least compromise some very essential aspect of her in order to succeed professionally, protect her reputation, or what have you - and this is something Marceau may or may not be willing to do. Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to her than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say Sophie Marceau will not progress or succeed, only that she will do it on her own terms.
Often Sophie Marceau feels like she is being pulled in two directions - what she needs to do to fulfill her long-range ambitions, and what she actually feels like doing. This may make it difficult for Sophie 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 Sophie Marceau has to decide on one or another at a given time, rather than try to have both.
Her professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Sophie Marceau to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Sophie is apt to have more of a spiritual vocation or calling. Healing, counseling, the ministry, music, art - or some combination thereof - may well be part of her role in life. On the other hand, Sophie Marceau may simply be confused and lack professional ambition.
Sophie Marceau feels that she knows who she is and therefore is confident that she can achieve her objectives. She may consider marriage as her sole aim in life and could become completely bound up in her marriage and family life.
She is refined and sensitive and likely to have subconscious insights or hunches. Sophie Marceau is highly intuitive and the feelings she gets about things are probably accurate. She is also creative and inspirational and could do well in an artistic field.
Her perseverance and endurance give Sophie Marceau the power to overcome a lot of difficulties in life. She is able to carry her lot with dignity and without complaints, but may literally work herself to death; Sophie wants to work until she takes her last breath!
Marceau knows how to discipline herself and faces difficulties with great courage. It may take time, energy and dedication for Sophie Marceau to achieve her goals; and when she meets defeat, Sophie rises above it and continues on her way.
