Alain Jean Assailly
His sensible, practical, down-to-earth appearance (described in the previous chapter), combined with his interest in relationships and other people (described below), make Alain Assailly a very pleasant and likeable person. Others come to Alain Assailly for practical advice and to share their concerns and feelings.
Harmony and balance are his keynotes. Alain Assailly instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and he is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Alain does all he can to avoid conflict and discord. His spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and he often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Assailly since he can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make his own decisions. Assailly will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. He prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on his own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Alain Assailly, and he has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Alain Assailly invests a great deal of his energy in personal love relationships and he is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Alain Assailly seeks a partner who is his equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. He makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and he enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Assailly perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Alain Assailly appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in his personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to him. If Alain Assailly fights about anything, it is often about something he feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Alain. He believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Alain Assailly also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Assailly dresses and furnishes his home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to him.
His energies are directed to either perfecting his techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Alain Assailly's, and he is quite a perfectionist!
Assailly can easily become overly identified or involved with the function he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
Alain Assailly tends to struggle with how to assert his will and he gets what he wants in life in a way that he can feel good about. Assailly may be unsure about when to use force and take decisive action, and he may occasionally become inappropriately aggressive or pushy. Alain Assailly may also disapprove of his own anger, competitiveness, or aggressive impulses - and thus have difficulty accessing his personal power. Learning to accept and express his "masculine" or "yang" qualities in a positive manner is a challenge for Assailly.
While Alain Assailly does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
He may have had a demanding and perfectionist or absent father. In any case, a lack of support and approval, a great deal of responsibility at an early age and an underlying feeling that he can never quite measure up may hold Assailly back. While he may encounter a great deal of adversity and struggle alone through many of life's trials, this makes Alain Assailly tough and determined. However, Assailly should beware of becoming cynical, too hard on himself, and too demanding and critical of others.
Along with his energy and drive, Alain Assailly has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Assailly, as well as a doer and a fighter. Alain wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for him.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Alain Assailly also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Alain is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and he can get lost in his dreams, fantasies and visions. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Alain Assailly is also drawn to mysticism and he has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Assailly may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make his way in the world. He is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
Alain Assailly deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Alain 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 and even fanatical at times. Alain likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
