They have a duality of on the one hand adapting and pleasing and on the other hand being pushy and demanding in their family and the community. They are nice and soft in order to bring harmony in the family, but they can also feel limited by them. They have a strong drive for harmony, a strong drive to make the group stronger. They want to expand the power and value of the family but on the other hand they feel too unsure and fear they might disturb the harmony by their drive.
