Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Cliff Williams likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Williams must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision.
