Although Chow Yun-Fat is quite proud and likes to show off and impress other people with his accomplishments and appearance (as described on the previous page) - he is really quite practical, solid, and down to earth (as discussed below). Because of this, he is likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
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 Yun-Fat's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Chow Yun-Fat 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 Chow Yun-Fat 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, Yun-Fat can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Chow Yun-Fat 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. Chow Yun-Fat 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 Yun-Fat for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Chow Yun-Fat usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Chow Yun-Fat 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".
Chow 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 Yun-Fat's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Chow Yun-Fat lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Yun-Fat. Chow Yun-Fat 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. Chow Yun-Fat may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
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 Chow Yun-Fat 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. Chow should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
He is an original! Chow Yun-Fat radiates a sort of electrical excitement about the things he is interested in, and conveys this to others, but he also gets bored rather quickly. Chow does not mind being a bit unusual or breaking a few rules either.
Chow Yun-Fat tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, he may have been dominated in relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Yun-Fat may have become passive, identified himself as a helpless victim, or tried to achieve his desires in underhanded ways.
Chow's hypersensitivity to his environment is likely to be a challenge for him in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness or dissonance in any form may affect Chow Yun-Fat more than most people.
He is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Chow often hides the intensity of his feelings and his personal motives and desires. Yun-Fat is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Chow Yun-Fat tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Chow Yun-Fat both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
Chow Yun-Fat has a harmonious balance between his body, soul and spirit. He enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
Both sensitive and sensuous, Chow blends charm and energy. Chow Yun-Fat has a healthy sexuality and a good balance between activity and passivity. He may be fond of singing, dancing, music and drama. Romance comes easily to Chow, and his romantic relationships are passionate.
He may find it hard to establish relationships with other people and he tends to look for more timid partners. Chow Yun-Fat could also have difficulty expressing his ideas to others as well as coming to an understanding with them.
