Although Benito Mussolini comes across as a very private, somewhat wary and enigmatic individual (as described on the previous page), there is another, quite different side to him: a person who really wants to be noticed, known, loved and admired.
Proud and intensely individual, Benito Mussolini 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 relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Benito Mussolini must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Benito Mussolini needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Benito has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Benito Mussolini also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Benito Mussolini, 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. Benito 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 Mussolini appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Benito Mussolini also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Benito Mussolini 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, Benito Mussolini likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Benito needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Mussolini's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Mussolini.
Benito Mussolini has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Benito Mussolini tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Benito Mussolini has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Mussolini's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with his conscious intentions and desires, therefore Benito Mussolini is able to proceed in his life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Benito's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
Benito Mussolini has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Mussolini also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about himself which will win him the confidence of others, especially his superiors.
