What 17 Means Personally
You are ambitious and highly gifted in business and finance. You are logistical and manage projects and people very well. You can envision the overall picture and plan how everything will come into play. You are very efficient.
You are self-confident and are able to effectively challenge yourself. You take the expectations and doubts of others as a challenge to prove yourself. You enjoy the opportunity to use personal wealth, status, and possessions to show off your accomplishments and abilities.
As a result, you have the potential to alienate others with your display of power and wealth. You might also have a tendency to be domineering and refuse to share responsibility or authority with others. Recognizing the talents and abilities of others may feel like acknowledging your own weaknesses, at first. But developing the ability to see the potential of coworkers, employees, or volunteers will help you keep from segregating yourself. Also, push yourself to give charitably out of the fruits of your labors to prevent your potential to gloat in your wealth.
