Born today, you don't like doing things that others tell you you must do; you don't like doing things because someone says it is the "right" thing to do; and you don't like doing things simply because others have done them before and met with success. All of that means very little to you, for you are such an original that you're not likely to do anything that isn't uniquely your own in virtually every respect. You will make a point of learning as much as you can about what others have done before you in your chosen line of work, but you're not the sort to copy them in any way. Indeed, you study your forebears not to emulate them, but so you can avoid doing anything at all like them! That is how completely original you are.
There are times when you may seem rather outrageous to those who see you only from a distance and who do not know you well, but those in your inner circle would describe you in terms that are much more conservative and down to earth -- for that is what you are like when you are enjoying the comforts of home. You're not a "wild thing" when behind closed doors.
