Although Brett Ratner appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), he is also a "warrior". Ratner sometimes feels torn between these two facets of his character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Brett Ratner often think that he is a "softy", but later find out that he is strong willed and pursues his goals aggressively.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, relying on no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence and courage. Brett Ratner believes in being totally honest, true to himself and his own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Ratner's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Brett Ratner craves the freedom to do things in his own way, and he works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not his style. Brett likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Brett Ratner loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for him. He is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though he may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Brett Ratner also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Ratner, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Brett Ratner believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Brett Ratner hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting his own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for him.
He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. He is often so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Ratner's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Brett Ratner to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Brett Ratner would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Brett Ratner to do so.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Ratner. Brett Ratner has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Brett Ratner may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Brett Ratner feels that he has the support of his family or others in his environment for his creative efforts and personal goals, which enables him to act with confidence. He is able to satisfy both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. He is in harmony with himself and is therefore an effective individual.
He is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. He enjoys competition, and his initiative and self-confidence make Brett Ratner a winner.
