drive and ambition
Bruce Payne avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. His ego drive is not very dominant and Payne is not especially ambitious or eager to push his way to the top. He may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Bruce Payne will really fight is when he senses that his loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case he is a fierce defender. Bruce Payne has a very strong protective side. He acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone he perceives as threatening to Bruce's home or family. However, Bruce Payne will rarely initiate a confrontation. His goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
He is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. Bruce Payne is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. His energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in his home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping Payne to achieve his goals and desires.
Bruce Payne expects to work hard for anything he accomplishes and he has no patience for people who do not pull their own weight. Work is a passion for Bruce at times, and he pushes himself too hard. Payne can also be too demanding of the people he works with.
If his energy is not invested in a job or career, Bruce Payne can become fanatical about his health, and may exercise or "work out" vigorously and perhaps excessively.
Bruce Payne struggles with feelings of discouragement, self-doubt, and the sense that life is a constant uphill battle. He is also prone to suppressing his feelings - especially aggressive or angry ones. This could lead to chronic resentment and bitterness, which actually undermines Payne's goal far more than openly expressing his anger would.
On the positive side, Bruce Payne is capable of immense patience, endurance and tireless effort in order to attain his goals and desires. Bruce Payne seems to have to work very hard, and without much outside help. However, if he can avoid a negative attitude and keep "plugging along", Payne will achieve something substantial. Moreover, he is much more effective when working for someone else.
Bruce Payne feels benevolent and well disposed to his friends and acquaintances and he finds pleasant cooperation with them. Payne displays an attitude of supportive kindness to the people around him and may also have a strong desire to live in a beautiful home.
Positions of honor, affluence, influence and stature in his community can be his. Bruce Payne feels that his destiny involves leadership or distinguishing himself in some way. Bruce possesses an innate sense of greatness or importance, and a strong drive to achieve recognition for his talent. Bruce Payne should avoid excessive egotism and arrogant pride, for these could limit his opportunities.
In some ways Bruce Payne may feel that he has little choice about his role in society. He is compelled either by unusual external circumstances or by an inner drive, to bring potentially dark, difficult, or taboo issues into public awareness. Bruce delves into the hidden side of life - things which may have been purposefully concealed or repressed - and sheds light on them. Bruce Payne could come into direct conflict with the authorities or powers-that-be as a result. He is apt to have extraordinary ambitions, and could also become overly zealous and fanatical.
