Although Arnaud Boetsch enjoys conversing and interacting with people (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he also has a self-reliant, independent spirit. Boetsch can go it alone if need be because Arnaud Boetsch likes to be a free agent. He likes to exchange ideas, but as stated below, he does not always listen.
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. Arnaud Boetsch 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 Boetsch's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Arnaud Boetsch 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. Arnaud likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Arnaud Boetsch 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, Arnaud Boetsch also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Boetsch, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Arnaud Boetsch believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Arnaud Boetsch 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 Boetsch's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Arnaud Boetsch to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Arnaud Boetsch would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Arnaud Boetsch to do so.
Arnaud Boetsch 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. Boetsch may find it exceedingly uncomfortable to assert himself or get up in front of an audience.
He is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. He enjoys competition, and his initiative and self-confidence make Arnaud Boetsch a winner.
He is polite and gallant and makes a special effort to meet others half-way. Arnaud Boetsch has the ability to give and receive love. Nurturing friendships, personal love relationships and social life is important to him.
