Mary’s Basic Character

 

Isobel Gordon - Graph

 

SUMMARY

Mary is a very hard driving and forceful individual, a self starter who is competitive.  Fearless in the face of challenge and always prepared to stand or fall by decisions she has made, such people often gravitate to positions of authority and command.

She is a director of people, an entrepreneur, and an opportunistic.  One who prefers to take command and give orders rather than lead in an integrative fashion.  However, she possesses some empathy and can, if necessary, persuade. An extremely quick and very mobile person, she is someone who dislikes routine, preferring much pace and variety in her work.  She is not keen upon detail and paper work but will do it (and does it well) when necessary.  Independent and wayward, nevertheless she will work within broad guidelines and parameters unless there are compelling reasons not to.
