The Perfectionist

"It was going to be one of Rabbit's busy days. As soon as he woke up he felt important, as thought everything depended on him. It was just the day for Organizing Something, or for Writing a Notice Signed Rabbit, or for Seeing What Everybody Else Thought About was a Captainish sort of day, when everyone said "Yes Rabbit" and "No Rabbit" and waited until he had told them."

Rabbit feels it is his job to improve things, and that without him the Wood would be in a constant state of chaos. He believes it is his duty to teach everyone about how to do things "the right way". Driven by a strong desire for order, he is fastidious and a perfectionist. He has deep personal convictions and has a strong sense of responsibility. He is sensible and very down to earth, but he can get irritated and impatient when no one understands his sense of purpose and the need for self-discipline in order to get everything done the way it should be. He often feels burdened by all the imperfection around him and the responsibility to make the changes that need to be made. He is a workaholic and has a bit of a devious streak when trying to get things done to his own specifications. Rabbit tends to come across as abrasive, intolerant, inflexible, obsessed, overbearing, and bossy.
