Although it may seem that he is just patiently plodding along, Ari Onassis is actually quite shrewd and has a clear purpose in mind. He is far more astute and ambitious than his rather gentle, forbearing manner (described in the previous chapter) would suggest.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Onassis. Ari Onassis will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Ari Onassis has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Ari Onassis seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Aristotle has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Ari Onassis has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Ari Onassis plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Onassis.
Onassis' strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Onassis. Ari Onassis 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. Ari Onassis may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Ari Onassis is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Aristotle does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Onassis, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
Onassis' subconscious needs and feelings blend well with his conscious intentions and desires, therefore Ari Onassis is able to proceed in his life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Aristotle's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
Aristotle 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 Onassis many allies and successes in life.
He may find it hard to establish relationships with other people and he tends to look for more timid partners. Ari Onassis could also have difficulty expressing his ideas to others as well as coming to an understanding with them.
