Born today, you are not so stubborn and inflexible that you are unwilling to maneuver, adjust and dodge. You can revise your thinking when it is necessary to do so -- but when things are calm and unchanging, you are unchanging as well, set in your ways and confident that your beliefs and opinions are correct. When you are met with facts that seem to refute your way of thinking, you are careful to examine those issues quite carefully, determining just where you might have gone wrong and how you can reshape your thoughts to be in line with what you have learned. You are certainly not one to insist that you are right when experience and facts tell you otherwise! You want to be admired for the ideological stance you take on any issue, and for the way you back it up with verifiable data.
Challenge is the name of the game as far as you are concerned. Though you will never turn away from a task that is easy or refuse anything that is handed to you on the proverbial silver platter, you will always go after what you want even when you know that the road ahead will be rocky and tortuous.
