Although he can appear freewheeling, independent, and, at times, inconsistent (as mentioned in the previous chapter), at heart he is very loyal and constant. Barry Bonds possesses a certain steadiness and firmness of will that may not be obvious to others until they get know Barry well.
Proud and intensely individual, Barry Bonds really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to him, and he cannot tolerate being in the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Barry Bonds must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Barry Bonds needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Barry has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality, and enthusiasm to bring them into being. Barry Bonds also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Barry Bonds 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 in the play. Barry 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. Though Bonds appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very much dependent on the affirmation, love, and recognition of others. He cannot bear being unnoticed or unappreciated.
Barry Bonds also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Barry Bonds loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. He is also immensely loyal and will defend his loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend his pride or betray his trust. However, Barry Bonds likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally Barry needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
His strengths are Bonds' zest and love for life, his creative power, and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forget there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
Barry Bonds craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable, or taboo. He may hide his interests or inclinations, except from those who know Barry very intimately. Barry Bonds is rarely content with himself and his life, and he has an inner urge to be continually going farther or deeper than him ever have before. Barry has also a strong interest in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
His conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by his unconscious beliefs and desires. If Barry Bonds overrides his instincts and emotions because they seem to lead him in a direction diametrically opposed to the one he consciously desires, his emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-to-one relationships are also an indication that he is doing this. However, if Barry Bonds attends to his emotional urges and feelings, and listen to the voice of his intuition, dreams, and gut feelings, they will give his life balance and greater satisfaction.
Barry has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he does have the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from his father or other significant men in his life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Barry and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of his greatest handicaps, and at times he may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of his own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in his life. Barry Bonds needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities say.
He is somewhat excitable and quickly aroused. Barry Bonds could be a little self-centered, but at the same time also magnetic. Barry likes to flirt and tends to fall in love at first sight, but he then transfers his affections to someone else for no apparent reason.
Bonds has an intrinsic creative and artistic ability and an unusual sense of form. Barry Bonds also has a deep need for relationships that offer affection and can be quite intense when by inner compulsion he feels drawn to someone. His relationships tend to be peculiar in some way.
His physical energy is strong and Barry Bonds is able to make an extra effort and work quite hard at any task he wants to do. Bonds can act quickly and he gets a great deal accomplished in a hurry. But Barry Bonds also has a tendency to be reckless and accident-prone.
Barry has an optimistic and harmonious personality and he happily goes about the attainment of his goals. Bonds knows how to make the best of life's opportunities and he gets along with everyone. Barry Bonds has the good fortune to live in pleasant and agreeable circumstances.
