Charles de Gaulle
While Charles de Gaulle appears pleasant, even and harmonious (as described on the previous page), inside he is deeply emotional and quite passionate. Despite appearances, he is intense and sometimes one-sided and extreme. His smooth, agreeable manner masks a much more strong-willed character.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Charles de Gaulle is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and he only allows a special few into his inner world. Like a wary animal, he is cautious and mistrustful of those he does not know until "he sniffs them out". He is highly instinctive and intuitive. Charles de Gaulle usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though he may be unable to clearly articulate why he feels the way he does. His feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Charles de Gaulle also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and he forms very intense love bonds and attachments. He is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that he perceives as a threat to his relationship with someone he loves. When Charles de Gaulle commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Charles merges with or "marries" the person he loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for him, and often stormy and nasty. When de Gaulle has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Charles will most certainly never forget the hurt and he often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to him.
Whatever he does, Charles does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. de Gaulle can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. de Gaulle can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Charles de Gaulle emotionally detached and objective. He definitely has a fanatical streak. He is also immensely strong-willed and his tenacity in pursuing his objectives often borders on obsession. He is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Charles de Gaulle loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Charles never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Charles de Gaulle tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Ownership gives Charles de Gaulle a sense of security, and he has a strong attachment to his possessions. Charles also has a natural instinct or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Charles de Gaulle 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. Charles de Gaulle has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Charles de Gaulle 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.
de Gaulle alternates between aggression and apathy and sometimes feels that he is unable to meet all the demands made on him. Once Charles de Gaulle becomes aware of what he needs to do, however, he is capable of working long and hard, not giving up until his work is done.
