In addition to being a self-reliant go-getter (as described on the previous page), he is also a philosopher and entrepreneur with big ideas and grand dreams. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn believes in absolute honesty and truthfulness, even when it hurts someone! At times Solzhenitsyn can be evangelical or preachy in his enthusiasm to share his convictions with others. He is quite a fireball, and whether it is a set of beliefs or a favorite football team, Solzhenitsyn tends to be downright religious about it!
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Solzhenitsyn can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Aleksandr has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Solzhenitsyn expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Aleksandr's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Solzhenitsyn.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Solzhenitsyn.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Aleksandr has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Aleksandr sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Aleksandr really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
He is polite and gallant and makes a special effort to meet others half-way. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn has the ability to give and receive love. Nurturing friendships, personal love relationships and social life is important to him.
