“Focused Uncertainty” is a phrase that could easily describe these optimistic and ambitious people. They are overcoming their Settler roots and are adopting the Prospector way. They can get easily confused as to what they really want, having the ability to pursue their dreams, but still hold out a hope that life can be simpler.
They are beyond merely looking for recognition; they want respect. They have a respect for rules, and will use them to gain the “wins” that will get them respect from others. This also provides the first steps toward the self-assurance they desire. They are uncertain which is the more important; respect from others or self-respect.
Their drive and ambition can act against them because they find themselves so busy, following the latest trends and “right things to do”, that they find little time just to sit down and sort out their issues.
