Essence: overdoing your work to be assertive.
Overdoing your work to be assertive
They want to do their work very well because that is what gives them their sense of self-worth. But they tend to overdo it, they are so keen to assert themselves that they don’t know when to stop. Or they constantly keep themselves in check out of fear of getting stuck.
Working restlessly without relaxation
They go on and on without a break. They never have time to enjoy the good things in life. They get so restless that they are unable to relax. Their upbringing was often one of work, work, work. Eventually they get so overwrought that even rest doesn’t help anymore, a state of complete breakdown.
Pollution prevents them from enjoying life
They find it impossible to relax amongst all the work that has been piling up. Everywhere they look there are heaps of work to be done still. Or they may see what has been overdone and the rubbish and pollution this has caused. How can they possible enjoy a world that has been so polluted? Every time they try and relax there is another disappointment in the environment that dampens their enthusiasm. They tend to be so idealistic that the slightest sign of pollution becomes like a huge threat to them. They are so intelligent that they notice everything that is detrimental to beauty.
Copying the sociable atmosphere
In order to find some form of relaxation they’ll look around to see how others do it. By copying others they hope to find ways of releasing the tension. But it isn’t real, it doesn’t come from the inside, so it doesn’t really work.
