Sometimes the very things we are rewarded for in life get us into trouble: high standards, attunement to expectations, strong motivation to perform well, never being satisfied with our results.  These qualities of temperament are elements of a person that trend towards over-control. Whereas these qualities are often highly rewarded in the professions, they can lead to personal burnout, bitterness, feelings of resentment, and a closed attitude towards life.
