drive and ambition
Ben Barnes avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. His ego drive is not very dominant and Barnes 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 Ben Barnes 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. Ben Barnes has a very strong protective side. He acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone he perceives as threatening to Ben's home or family. However, Ben Barnes will rarely initiate a confrontation. His goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
He is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. Ben Barnes is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. His energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in his home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping Barnes to achieve his goals and desires.
He has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Ben Barnes is willing to dedicate a great deal of his energy and strength to an important cause, and he will act decisively on his beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Barnes gets so involved, and identifies so much, with his ideas that he cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes him philosophically.
He is dynamic, decisive and somewhat impulsive. Ben Barnes responds quickly and spontaneously to challenges, and enjoys vigorous physical activities that require fast reflexes and a good sense of rhythm and timing.

He is individualistic and makes a good leader, spearheading new projects and inspiring others to act.
While Ben Barnes is often charged with energy and inspired about what he wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to him as well. His energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Ben Barnes has a streak of the pacifist or defeatist in him. Learning to assert himself in a strong, clear, forthright manner and developing stamina in the face of obstacles are necessary to counter such tendencies. To accomplish all he is capable of, it would also be very beneficial for Ben Barnes to work on building up his physical energy. Ben needs to get regular exercise, eat healthfully, get plenty of rest (something he may require more than an average amount of), and especially avoid activities and people who dissipate and waste his time.
Ben Barnes has a powerful will and when he wants something, he pursues it passionately and relentlessly until he achieves it. He may be so driven by his desire that he loses all objectivity. Ben Barnes often becomes compulsive, even obsessed, with doing or achieving something, no matter what the costs or how hard he must work for it. His forcefulness may be veiled or subtle, for often Barnes does not reveal his real aims and intentions to others until they cross him. Intense power struggles and relationships with a strong dominance/submissiveness theme are likely to erupt. Ben Barnes has enormous energy reserves, and is capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement if he uses his energies for constructive purposes.
The road to success, professional advancement and fulfillment of his long-range goals is likely to be easier and smoother for Ben Barnes than for many. This is partly due to his getting a great deal of financial and/or emotional support. Someone early in his life probably really believed in Ben and had high expectations for him. Ben Barnes contributes to his own success by setting high goals and enlisting the aid of friends and others to achieve these goals. A lack of selfishness or pettiness is a great boon to him. Whatever Ben Barnes does is likely to be expansive and eventually quite prosperous.
