Behind Gore's proud and magnanimous demeanor (as described on the previous page), there is a real go-getter. Others feel that he is rather narcissistic. Al Gore should strive to always be aware of others' needs and concerns so that this criticism is not true!
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, depending upon no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence, and courage. Al Gore believes in being totally honest, true to oneself and one's own vision and convictions, even if that means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor, and authenticity are Gore's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Al Gore craves the freedom to do things in his own way, and he works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not his style. Al likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Al Gore loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes, and bring in some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are like death to him. He is not afraid of trying something that's never been done before, and even though he may be seen as a fool sometimes, Al Gore also discovers, invents, and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Gore, and he wilts (or get very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic, and assertive. Al Gore believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he thinks of his as a strong person - even invincible. Al Gore hates being ill or in any way in a position of dependency. Accepting his own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for him.
He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and has less facility in the receptive arts of relating to others, picking up subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing, and harmonizing. Often he is so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas, and feelings would go a long way in improving Gore's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Al Gore to be rather insensitive, and to therefore alienate others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his ends by using anger or some version of a temper tantrum. Al Gore would gain much by learning to slow down, relax, and just let things be sometimes, but his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Al Gore to do this.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Gore.
Al Gore has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Al Gore is extremely sensitive, compassionate, and giving, often to his own personal disadvantage. His ideals and spiritual values motivate Al Gore, and he cannot live only for personal gain or materialistic concerns. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what he does. Otherwise Al Gore becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music, and/or charitable works suit Al well.
Al Gore has a deep belief in his own power and his ability to survive any change and to emerge victoriously from any difficulty. Al has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, he pursues his desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and he may be somewhat compulsive, even fanatical at times. Al likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak, who avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
