Alfred de Musset
Alfred de Musset's appearance and the way he comes across to others (as described on the previous page) are very congruent with his true nature (described below). He is very idealistic, and a great lover of space and freedom.
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 Alfred de Musset, 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. Alfred de Musset 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. de Musset 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. Alfred de Musset has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. de Musset always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Alfred de Musset has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Alfred 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.
de Musset 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, Alfred's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Alfred de Musset 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 de Musset.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to de Musset. Alfred de Musset 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. Alfred de Musset may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Alfred de Musset tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Alfred de Musset has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
de Musset can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Alfred de Musset enjoys fine health as well.
While Alfred de Musset 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!).
Alfred de Musset has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He progresses rather slowly in life, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for him to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Alfred likes to be in control of himself.
He is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Alfred often hides the intensity of his feelings and his personal motives and desires. de Musset is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Alfred de Musset tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Alfred de Musset both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
de Musset is very thorough and takes his time thinking things through. He enjoys games that require a lot of concentration and thought, like chess for example. Alfred de Musset also could find traveling very rewarding.
