drive and ambition
Bill Gates seesaws between being too pushy, confrontational, and insistent on doing things his way, and being too eager to please, without a clear, definite goal of his own. Bill Gates strives for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. He may feel frustrated at times that he cannot simply do what HE wants to, that he must always accommodate the needs and desires of others. Or he may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive manner if he does not have the support and approval of other people. Either way, he is not a loner. Bill Gates achieves his goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player. He is very concerned with the concept of fairness and becomes quite indignant and vocal if he senses someone is being taken advantage of. Bill Gates avoids extremism and favors a balanced, moderate approach to living. He is unlikely to push himself too hard or to become fanatically driven to reach his goals.
It is not easy for Bill Gates to show the world at large his angry or competitive side, but his family sees this side of his more often. Temper tantrums, tumultuous family relationships, or a great deal of competition between Gates and one or more of his relations is likely. Bill Gates likes to be the one in charge in his home and he puts a lot of energy into making it the way he wants it.
He is light-hearted and sociable and enjoys attending social gatherings. Most projects that Bill takes up should have a successful outcome. Bill Gates also has a great desire for beauty and he likes to surround himself with beautiful things.
His nature tends to be very sensual and Gates may irresistibly be attracted to someone, even if he knows that he or she is bad for him. Bill Gates also has a tendency toward jealousy and possessiveness in his relationships, and unwillingness to grant his partners freedom to be themselves.
An inner conflict between the desire for greater opportunities and the desire to hold on to safe and predictable circumstances could make Gates somewhat discontent. Bill Gates longs for changes in his life, but may lack the tenacity to bring them about.
Bill Gates tends to be a bit ruthless and may think that he has to fight for his existence. He may feel that something gets in his way every time he tries to make a move. Constantly in a tense and frustrated state, Bill has to guard against violent incidents.
Exercising self-control could be quite difficult for Bill Gates and he may often become involved in quarrels. Some of these disputes could end in violent behavior, if he is not careful. Being with others seems to put Bill in a constant state of excitement.
Bill Gates is apt to receive much publicity and popularity through his professional pursuits, for he has a way of winning the hearts and trust of many people. Bill has an instinct for what the masses of people will respond to emotionally, and this feeling-sense of what other people want enables him to succeed in sales, promotion, and so on. His career could also involve protecting and caring for people, and nurturing them in some capacity.
Innovation, discovery, originality, experimentation, and opening up new channels of understanding are important aspects of his life's work. Gates' ambitions in life, as well as the way he achieves those goals, are unique or "alternative". Concerned with future trends and the new, Bill Gates is apt to be ahead of his time in many respects.
Gaining his professional objectives or advancing in his career often requires considerable sacrifice on Bill's part. Specifically, Bill Gates often feels that he must deny or at least compromise some very essential aspect of his in order to succeed professionally, protect his reputation, or what have you - and this is something Gates may or may not be willing to do. Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to him than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say Bill Gates will not progress or succeed, only that he will do it on his own terms.
