Bret Easton Ellis
Bret Easton Ellis is actually a more sensitive, vulnerable and compassionate person than his proud and somewhat vain manner (described in the previous chapter) would suggest. Although he maintains a strong, confident facade, he is actually quite soft, understanding and caring.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Bret Easton Ellis as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Ellis may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Bret Easton Ellis usually keeps to himself.
Bret shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Bret has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Bret Easton Ellis sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Ellis tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Bret has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Ellis will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Ellis tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Bret Easton Ellis does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Bret Easton Ellis has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Ellis more than it bothers him.
Bret Easton Ellis 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 Bret very intimately. Bret Easton Ellis 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. Bret has also a strong interest in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
Bret Easton Ellis 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. Bret Easton Ellis has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
He is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Bret Easton Ellis has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Bret Easton Ellis has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
Along with his energy and drive, Bret Easton Ellis has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Ellis, as well as a doer and a fighter. Bret wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for him.
He is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. His spiritual values color Bret's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
He is infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission and can be extremely driven, obsessed and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it effectively is definitely on his agenda. Bret Easton Ellis confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach him about power and eventually force Ellis to claim his own.
