He is a perfectionist and has high standards for his own work. Zeppo Marx 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. Zeppo Marx strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and he becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Zeppo Marx 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, Zeppo Marx underestimates himself. Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Marx does apply himself diligently in a given area, he gradually gains self-confidence as he masters skills and develops expertise.
Zeppo Marx 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, Marx may not aim high enough, thereby settling for too little in life.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Zeppo Marx enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. He is quite forthright and sometimes tactless. Marx can be very convincing about his point of view, but he is prone to a "hard-sell" approach which sometimes backfires. Challenging mental work is a good avenue for Zeppo's aggressive intellect.

Conflicts in his early childhood are apt to be played out in Zeppo's later professional life. Unresolved rivalry with a parent or sibling may result in antagonism toward superiors or competitors.

He may have to overcome something in his background or personal past in order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes Zeppo Marx 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.
The road to success, professional advancement, and fulfillment of his long-range goals is apt to be easier and smoother for Zeppo Marx than for many.
