drive and ambition
He is a perfectionist and has high standards for his own work. Topher Grace 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. Topher Grace strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and he becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Topher Grace 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, Topher Grace underestimates himself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Grace does apply himself diligently in a given area, he gradually gains self-confidence as he masters skills and develops expertise.
Topher Grace 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, Grace may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is very often difficult for Topher. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Topher Grace lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. Positively, Grace can be very unselfish, working more on behalf of others rather than for himself.
However, Topher Grace denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
Topher Grace has a rather cocky, confident, we-can-do-it attitude which people in his environment pick up on quite readily. Inspiring, motivating, and encouraging others to go out and do their very best is one of Topher's innate gifts. Topher Grace has faith in the power of action and boldness, and enjoys imitating new programs and projects.
He enjoys risky, exciting activities and cannot tolerate too much routine, tedium, or inactivity. Unless other factors in his chart suggest staying power and the ability to follow through, Topher Grace may be the person who initiates a new venture but cannot happily participate in the ongoing, sustained effort it requires. "Independent" is Grace's middle name! Topher Grace needs to be a totally free agent, to run his own show. Topher likes to introduce new concepts to people, and then move on.
His competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Topher Grace can actually accomplish. His energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very high, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
While Topher Grace is often charged with energy and inspired about what he wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to him as well. His energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Topher and he must have something that stirs his imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate him. Topher Grace has a strong urge to act out his fantasies or to live his dream, and Topher Grace will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which Grace can express himself imaginatively are excellent for him.
Work that only serves his own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Topher Grace. He may lack the competitive edge, the fighting spirit, the "me first" attitude that is often required for material advancement and success. He also tends to either overestimate or underestimate his own power and abilities.
Patience is not one of his strong virtues and Topher Grace does what needs to be done impetuously and hastily, leading to great potential for accidents. Topher Grace also has a streak of rebellion in him that could bring disputes and arguments with those around him.
He is quite passionate, loves children, and is inclined to wish for a large family. In fact, Topher Grace is likely to become completely bound up in his marriage and family life.
Freedom is very important to Topher Grace and he will work hard to get it. Quick to act, he wants to realize his goals immediately. Topher Grace has a strong desire to make his fortune in life and tends to take chances with speculative ventures or gambling.
Somewhat self-willed and obstinate, Grace tends to withdraw from everything that he deem unnecessary. He may prefer to be alone and is inclined to cut himself off from other people frequently, resulting in loneliness and depression.
He may have to overcome something in his background or personal past in order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Topher Grace is apt to feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of him or what he needs to do to progress, versus what his old conditioning or his emotional predisposition would have him do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
