Although Barack Obama appears to be a team player, sometimes he feels tempted to steal the limelight from others. His strong need to gain success and acclaim can lead Obama toward a role in life that is unnatural to him, but wins him popularity. Alternatively, Obama can be a leader or director who inspires others to develop their greatest potential, thereby winning praise and honor through genuine accomplishment and personal integrity: the choice is his!
He is a much warmer person and one who is much more easily hurt by criticism or lack of respect from others than his cool, rational demeanor may suggest.
Proud and intensely individual, Barack Obama really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions.

For Barack Obama, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Barack wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams.

Ideally, Barack needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Obama's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart.

His energies are directed toward either honing his professional techniques, skills and abilities or "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process.
