In addition to Dane's strong personal loyalties and the devotion he feels for his nearest and dearest relations (as described on the previous page), Dane Cook has great compassion and sensitivity toward people in all walks of life. Dane Cook has a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art and life styles.
Moreover, Cook should be careful not to be taken advantage of by others. His good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude can make Dane Cook a victim of others' greed. If this happens, Dane needs to avoid becoming bitter and resentful about life, and instead, to allow his great compassion and sensitivity to blossom and shine, rather than be dimmed by a few mistakes.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Dane Cook as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Cook may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Dane Cook usually keeps to himself.
Dane shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Dane has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Dane Cook sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Cook tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Dane has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Cook will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Cook tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Dane Cook does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Dane Cook has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Cook more than it bothers him.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Cook.
Dane Cook has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Cook can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Dane Cook enjoys fine health as well.
While Dane Cook does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
Dane Cook has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Cook also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about himself which will win him the confidence of others, especially his superiors.
He is infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission and can be extremely driven, obsessed and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it effectively is definitely on his agenda. Dane Cook confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach him about power and eventually force Cook to claim his own.
Dane Cook has a basic need to fit in with others and is always willing to cooperate. He enjoys working with others as a team and is a well liked comrade.
Cook depends a great deal on other people's reactions to him and rarely acts until he sees how he affects others. Dane Cook must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Dane should also learn to rely heavily on his hunches.
