There's a natural sense of authority and severity about you. Even at a young age you were likely thrust into leadership roles, and you took the mantle of responsibility very seriously. You do things the old-fashioned way, with meticulous attention to detail, insistence on competency and the expectation of real results.
Your standards are impossibly high. Where does that come from? That demanding, critical, conservative demeanor you display reveals an inner dynamic of your core nature -- that of wanting the approval of some external authority figure. When that support is finally found -- internally, of course -- it is grudging or conditional. In a sense, you're trapped in your imperial mind, requiring outside proof of what you perceive with your senses. You often feel isolated and alone, which creates not only interpersonal problems at work but in romance as well. Rather than pushing people away, make it a point to be interested in them. Lighten up a little bit, and relax. Connection will relieve the loneliness you feel inside.
