Unfortunately, these same qualities can make them a bit temperamental as they fail to listen to the needs and suggestions of others.

Health

Various types of physical activities and sports come naturally to these people, and are often a source of leisurely activity. The other side of the coin is that these highly active individuals are vulnerable to injuries and stress-related illnesses. Their competitive nature in most aspects of life is often the reason for high stress levels. The inability to meet their own impossible standards can lead to depression and anxiety. The key to staying healthy is learning the difference between ambition and complete burn-out.
