The way Andy Warhol comes across to others is very congruent with his true nature so "what he sees is what you get". The description below reinforces what you read about Andy in the previous chapter.
Proud and intensely individual, Andy Warhol 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". Andy Warhol must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Andy Warhol needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Andy has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Andy Warhol also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Andy Warhol, 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. Andy 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 Warhol 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.
Andy Warhol also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Andy Warhol 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, Andy Warhol likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Andy needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Warhol'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.
Andy Warhol tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where his efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged, or unknown to the public. Asserting himself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Warhol.
Andy Warhol feels that he has the support of his family or others in his environment for his creative efforts and personal goals, which enables him to act with confidence. He is able to satisfy both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. He is in harmony with himself and is therefore an effective individual.
Andy has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Andy Warhol tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, he never gives up on his hopes for the future. Warhol tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Warhol's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Andy Warhol tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Realistic and practical, Andy Warhol sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Warhol possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Andy Warhol also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Warhol often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
He keeps his feelings well under control, but is inclined to feel inferior and insecure. Warhol displays a cool and reserved manner and tries to hide his inner discontentment. Andy Warhol also has a tendency to cling to the past.
Warhol always seems to find the right words to verbalize his feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Andy Warhol also has a keen sense of beauty and he probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
