you're shuri - the genius of wakanda

Possessing an extraordinary mind, this woman always has a plan. She’s a genius, the smartest of all the superheroes and thinks with lightning-like speed. Swiftly seeing the bigger picture, she develops strategies, tactics and devices to improve any situation. Her ability to see patterns where others cannot astounds and amazes those who know her. With an open heart and mastery level skills, she becomes a wise woman—the one people seek out for sage-like advice.

Her Achilles heel – Perfection. Because she’s so driven and always striving, it’s also her weakness, and she can fall into the trap of “it has to be perfect.” Her judgments and criticisms become harsh, maybe with others, but more so with herself. Her mantras include: I should’ve done better. I should’ve done more. I should’ve done it quicker. I should’ve been smarter. I should’ve known better. Unwilling to tolerate any mistakes makes her rigid and closes her heart, keeping her stuck, frozen, unable to execute her dream plan. Oh, she’ll never laze about, always keep busy, but she’ll be running in circles and wondering why she’s not moving forward.
