Although Andy García appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), he is also a "warrior". García sometimes feels torn between these two facets of his character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Andy García often think that he is a "softy", but later find out that he is strong willed and pursues his goals aggressively.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, relying on no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence and courage. Andy García believes in being totally honest, true to himself and his own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are García's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Andy García craves the freedom to do things in his own way, and he works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not his style. Andy likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Andy García loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for him. He is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though he may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Andy García also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for García, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Andy García believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Andy García hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting his own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for him.
He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. He is often so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving García's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Andy García to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Andy García would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Andy García to do so.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to García. Andy García has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Andy García may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Andy has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. His self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit him in an almost magical way. His optimism and cheerful generosity also win García many allies and successes in life.
Andy García deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Andy has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, he pursues his desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and he may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Andy likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
Andy García has a harmonious balance between his body, soul and spirit. He enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
