    I think overachievers have a type-A edge to their personalities, and probably have an internal system of motivation which comprises of external rewards for compensation of deep internal needs.. Whatever those needs are, I think it depends on their social obligations, roles, and expectations.. Just a guess.

    Probably because you're not an enneagram 3 or 8. That's typically what these overachievers are.

    That doesn't even make sense.
    "The need to be seen as successful" is the mark of an insecure person who cares what others think.
    I don't see how a wimp like that could lead any group of people, or achieve anything.
    The most successful people I know compete with one person.

    Themselves.
