Because he is supportive and nurturing (as mentioned in the previous chapter), and also practical and well grounded (as described below), Akon is a great source of solace and emotional support for other people. Akon is actually more stable and solid than his rather mellow demeanor would suggest.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Akon's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Akon has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Akon will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Akon can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Akon also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Akon has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Akon for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Akon usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Akon also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Akon has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Akon's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Akon lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Akon. Akon has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Akon may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Akon is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Akon does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Akon, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
Akon has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Akon tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, he never gives up on his hopes for the future. Akon tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
He is a bit impulsive and excitable and wants things done quickly. Akon tends to be very impatient with anyone who is slower or less energetic than he is. Akon will fight for what he wants but should guard against mishaps or accidents.
