Although Bing Crosby seems accommodating, obliging, amiable and willing to compromise (as described on the previous page), he can also be enormously stubborn and immovable, as discussed below. Bing has such a pleasant demeanor that he is able to use a combination of charm and bullying to get what he wants. He is an excellent negotiator.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Crosby's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Bing Crosby has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Bing Crosby will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Crosby can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Bing Crosby also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Bing Crosby has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Crosby for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Bing Crosby usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Bing Crosby also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Bing has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Crosby's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Bing Crosby lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
Bing Crosby craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable or taboo. Bing may hide his interests or inclinations, except from those who know him very intimately. Bing Crosby is rarely content with himself and his life, and he has an inner urge to continually delve deeper than ever before. Bing is also highly interested in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
Bing Crosby often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Bing has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Bing sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Bing really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
His life is apt to be blessed with more than his share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening up to him at just the right time. Because Bing Crosby is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, he continues to generate success in his life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Bing should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Crosby's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Bing Crosby tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Bing Crosby has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Bing Crosby tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
His physical energy is strong and Bing Crosby is able to make an extra effort and work quite hard at any task he wants to do. Crosby can act quickly and he gets a great deal accomplished in a hurry. But Bing Crosby also has a tendency to be reckless and accident-prone.
Bing has an optimistic and harmonious personality and he happily goes about the attainment of his goals. Crosby knows how to make the best of life's opportunities and he gets along with everyone. Bing Crosby has the good fortune to live in pleasant and agreeable circumstances.
