Though Axl Rose seems steady and down-to-earth (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is also quite idealistic as described below. Sometimes he may feel torn between maintaining stability and the status quo versus experimenting with the unconventional and stirring up change. Axl Rose has a keen business sense and he is very effective in any organization or large business.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed, and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if that means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships Axl Rose cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Rose can be enormously stubborn, opinionated, and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Axl has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to live by his ideals, but his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences, and needs. Axl Rose probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective, and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Axl Rose seems rather self-sufficient and detached emotionally because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Axl makes up his mind on an issue, he is difficult to sway and can be rather dogmatic.
Axl Rose thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in community affairs, social organizations, and groups of all kinds, or to have a keen interest in such. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing, or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Axl Rose stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and in terms of ideas. When young, Axl Rose was very influenced by his peers and by group pressures and by all the "latest crazes". Axl has an experimental mind and is attracted by the novel.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Rose. Axl Rose 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. Axl Rose may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Axl Rose tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but he does not always listen as well. Axl Rose has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Axl Rose 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 Axl does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Rose, as well as his personal appearance and attractiveness.
He is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence, and cheerful generosity. His good will and friendliness win him many allies. Axl Rose also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Axl expects the best, and usually gets it.
Axl is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and he can get lost in his dreams, fantasies, and visions. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Axl Rose is also drawn to mysticism and he has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace-loving, Rose may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make his way in the world. He is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the hard realities of life.
Rose always seems to find the right words to verbalize his feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Axl Rose also has a keen sense of beauty and he probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
Axl Rose probably has great intellectual ability and curiosity. Axl never seem to run out of ideas and always welcomes the study of new subjects, the more abstract the better. But he also has the basic sense to translate abstract ideas into practical reality.
Rose depends a great deal on other people's reactions to him and rarely acts until he sees how he affects others. Axl Rose must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Axl should also learn to rely heavily on his hunches.
