As described in the previous chapter, Alexander Fleming instinctively protects, nurtures and supports others, and as discussed below, he loves to be a leader. The combination of these two sides of Fleming results in his being a good leader of his family, or any club or group to which he belongs. Alexander Fleming treats people with a lot of personal attention and care and is appreciated as a result.
He also often takes things too personally and many times Alexander Fleming thinks that things are directed at him personally when they are not.
Behind Fleming's rather gentle, soft appearance he is very willful and stubborn, a surprise to people as they get to know him better.
Proud and intensely individual, Alexander Fleming 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". Alexander Fleming must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Alexander Fleming needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Alexander has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Alexander Fleming also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Alexander Fleming, 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. Alexander 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 Fleming 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.
Alexander Fleming also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Alexander Fleming 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, Alexander Fleming likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Alexander needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Fleming'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.
Ownership gives Alexander Fleming a sense of security, and he has a strong attachment to his possessions. Alexander also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Alexander Fleming has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Alexander Fleming tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Alexander Fleming also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Alexander 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. Alexander Fleming is also drawn to mysticism and he has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Fleming 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.
