Andrew earns success by thoroughness and dependability. He is practical, matter-of-fact, realistic, and responsible. He decides logically what should be done and works toward it steadily, regardless of distractions. He takes pleasure in making everything orderly and organised – work, home, and life. He values tradition and loyalty!
