Although Christopher Walken appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), he is also a "warrior". Walken 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 Christopher Walken 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. Christopher Walken 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 Walken's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Christopher Walken 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. Christopher likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Christopher Walken 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, Christopher Walken also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Walken, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Christopher Walken believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Christopher Walken 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 Walken's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Christopher Walken to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Christopher Walken would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Christopher Walken to do so.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Walken. Christopher Walken 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. Christopher Walken may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Christopher Walken 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. Christopher Walken has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Christopher Walken has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Walken also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about himself which will win him the confidence of others, especially his superiors.
He keeps his feelings well under control, but is inclined to feel inferior and insecure. Walken displays a cool and reserved manner and tries to hide his inner discontentment. Christopher Walken also has a tendency to cling to the past.
His physical energy is strong and Christopher Walken is able to make an extra effort and work quite hard at any task he wants to do. Walken can act quickly and he gets a great deal accomplished in a hurry. But Christopher Walken also has a tendency to be reckless and accident-prone.
