drive and ambition
Art Garfunkel has a warrior's attitude - decisive, courageous, and bold. Art tends to always crave action, even when waiting for an opportune moment or not doing anything at all would actually be effective in the long-term. He absolutely cannot tolerate being passive or even patient about getting what he wants. Art Garfunkel feels that it is up to him to take the initiative and he pursues his goal or desire very aggressively.
He is also self-reliant, in that he does not depend on others to do things for him or help him along, and Art Garfunkel is often irritated when other people offer advice or direction. Cooperation rarely comes easily to him. He is willful and can be quite oblivious to others' desires or feelings when he is pursuing something he wants. He is highly competitive, enjoys a challenge or a good fight, and may be downright pugnacious at times. Abounding in energy and enthusiasm at the start of a new venture, Art Garfunkel needs a very positive response and encouragement in order to sustain his interest throughout. If a project is not successful from the start, he is liable to drop it and move on to something else rather than rework or refine it. He has a strong desire to blaze new trails and put his own twist to things. Garfunkel can discover, invent and initiate new things, but he is impatient and may lack the stamina and perseverance needed see a long-term project through.
He has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Art Garfunkel is willing to dedicate a great deal of his energy and force to an important cause, and he will act decisively on his beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Garfunkel gets so involved and identified with his ideas that he cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes him philosophically.
He is very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity and good will. Art Garfunkel notices these qualities (or the lack thereof) more quickly than others and brings them up frequently. He is philosophical about life and very perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of his own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious, metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.
In some ways Art Garfunkel may feels that he has little choice about his role in society. He is compelled either by unusual outer circumstances or by an inner drive, to bring things which may be dark, difficult, or taboo, into public awareness. Art delves into the hidden side of life, things which may have been purposefully concealed or repressed, and brings these things to light. Art Garfunkel could come into direct conflict with the authorities or powers-that-be as a result. He is apt to have extraordinary ambitions, and could also become overly zealous and fanatical.
In many ways Art's rise in the world is an easy one, aided by his personal charm and attractiveness, his ability to please people, and his excellent social instincts. Artistic ambitions are also an aspect of this.
His persevering and enduring nature gives Art Garfunkel the power to overcome a lot of difficulties in life. He is able to carry his lot with dignity and without complaint, but may literally work himself to death; Art wants to work until he takes his last breath!
