Zipporah Dobyns' practical, realistic approach to life (described in the previous chapter), combined with her perfectionism (described below), makes for a very skilled and talented person. Dobyns can excel at any task that requires skill, dedication and attention to detail. Sometimes, however, she has difficulty balancing work and pleasure, and she should avoid the tendency to vacillate between extremes of austere, hard work and laziness.
At heart Zipporah Dobyns is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Zipporah Dobyns has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Dobyns can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in her work and she takes pride in a job well done. What she may lack in self-confidence Zipporah Dobyns often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. She is adept at using her hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are her forte. Some would say she is a little too meticulous, for Dobyns can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as she thinks it should be, and she worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Zipporah Dobyns likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Dobyns. She probably wishes that she were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Dobyns can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in her environment or within herself, Dobyns tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. She is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in her self-assessment and often does not give herself enough praise or credit.
She is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about her diet, hygiene, and health habits. Zipporah has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. Her tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. She is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Dobyns can sometimes be difficult to live with because of her fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Zipporah Dobyns seems rather cool and self-contained, she is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. She is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. She is quietly devoted to the ones she cares for.
She is cautious, realistic and practical in her approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Zipporah Dobyns analyzes before she acts. She is sometimes too serious. If Dobyns allowed herself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to her health!
Zipporah Dobyns has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and she loves to perform. Zipporah enjoys being the center of attention and she seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. She is very involved in her own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using her special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. Zipporah Dobyns has a strong sense of pride.
Zipporah Dobyns tends to see things from her perspective only and to be rather subjective. She also enjoys talking and expressing her views but does not always listen as well. Zipporah Dobyns has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and she needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
If she follows her true nature, her life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Zipporah Dobyns cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Zipporah finds it difficult to conform. Her offbeat interests and tastes lead Dobyns to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Zipporah Dobyns has a very creative, inventive streak.
Zipporah Dobyns feels physically strong and fit and has a healthy sex-life. Her actions are governed by a strong sense of honor and integrity. Dobyns is ambitious with a talent for organizing and a strong desire to succeed, insuring by that her professional success.
She is creative and talented, but must develop self-discipline to channel her energies productively. Zipporah Dobyns may feel that everything is going to be all right, that she cannot lose and may take risks by gambling or speculating, which could result in disappointments.
Dobyns seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. Zipporah Dobyns tends to withdraw and her outlook in general could be a bit too negative. Zipporah Dobyns should beware of letting her emotional tension react to her physical well-being.
