Although Aldous Huxley appears quite pleasant, agreeable and prepared to compromise for the sake of harmony (as described on the previous page), he also has a strong need to shine and express his own opinions. Aldous has the potential to be a great leader, manager, coach or teacher.
Proud and intensely individual, Aldous Huxley really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to him, and he cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Aldous Huxley must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Aldous Huxley needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Aldous has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Aldous Huxley also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Aldous Huxley, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Aldous wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams. Though Huxley appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Aldous Huxley also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Aldous Huxley loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. He is also immensely loyal and will defend his loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend his pride or betray his trust. However, Aldous Huxley likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Aldous needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Huxley's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Huxley. Aldous Huxley has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Aldous Huxley may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Aldous Huxley has a strong need to be with people whom he is emotionally close to. He is very sensitive to others emotional needs, lending a sympathetic ear to their problems. Peace and harmony in his personal surrounding and relationships are very important to Huxley.
