Born today, you are not always the best judge of your performance in the workplace -- not because you do not have expert knowledge or the ability to look at things critically, but perhaps because you do have both of these attributes in spades! The fact is that you are often far too critical of yourself, so even when you turn in a performance that is judged by others as excellent and top-notch, you are likely to find fault with it for some small reason or other. This can result in a pattern of frustration and discontent, but it can also drive you to achieve more with each successive effort. Indeed, you are likely to rise to the top of your profession simply because you are not willing to rest on your laurels.
You are quite attractive, though perhaps not in the classic sense of the word. You look in the mirror and find fault with what you see -- what else is new? -- but others are able to look within and see someone who is compelling, exciting and alluring, with a great deal of charisma and personal power. You're not likely to go unnoticed!
