His ego drive is not very dominant and Shaw is not especially ambitious or eager to push his way to the top. He may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Artie Shaw will really fight is when he senses that his loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case he is a fierce defender. Artie Shaw has a very strong protective side. He acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone he perceives as threatening to Artie's home or family.
