Alfred Lord Tennyson
Although Alfred Lord Tennyson seems flexible and changeable (as described on the previous page), he is really quite loyal, and he remains fixed on his heart's desires. Because he enjoys taking center stage, Alfred Lord Tennyson often uses his verbal agility and quick wit (mentioned earlier) to entertain or impress other people.
Proud and intensely individual, Alfred Lord Tennyson 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". Alfred Lord Tennyson must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Alfred Lord Tennyson needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Alfred Tennyson has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Alfred Lord Tennyson also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Alfred Lord Tennyson, 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. Alfred Tennyson 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 1st Baron Tennyson 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.
Alfred Lord Tennyson also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Alfred Lord Tennyson 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, Alfred Lord Tennyson likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Alfred Tennyson needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
1st Baron Tennyson'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.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Alfred Lord Tennyson prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
1st Baron Tennyson invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and his inner life.
1st Baron Tennyson's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with his conscious intentions and desires, therefore Alfred Lord Tennyson is able to proceed in his life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Alfred Tennyson's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
He is apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Alfred Lord Tennyson does not always consciously understand why he feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as he does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in 1st Baron Tennyson's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is apt to profoundly influence Alfred Lord Tennyson and shape important decisions in his life, and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
He is creative and talented, but must develop self-discipline to channel his energies productively. Alfred Lord Tennyson may feel that everything is going to be all right, that he cannot lose and may take risks by gambling or speculating, which could result in disappointments.
