drive and ambition
Dave Grohl is extremely strong-willed and he pursues his goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. He is capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and he is very difficult to influence or sway once his mind is made up. When Dave Grohl wants something, Grohl can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. He is very instinctive and does not always consciously know why he feels as strongly and deeply as he does.
He also tends to be secretive and unwilling to reveal his aims and intentions, and the intensity of his will and desire may not initially be apparent to others. However, Grohl is very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. Dave Grohl often manipulates or forces his will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. He is not interested in confrontation but he is a formidable foe if he encounters opposition or aggression. Dave is courageous and has a rather primitive, raw side as well.
He has passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. Dave Grohl is willing to dedicate a great deal of his energy and strength to an important cause, and he will act decisively on his beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes Grohl gets so involved, and identifies so much, with his ideas that he cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes him philosophically.
Dave Grohl has a powerful drive for achievement and a penchant for athletics or some other very vigorous, challenging career. He is apt to push himself very hard, trying to outdo the competition. When possible, Grohl likes to work independently, blazing trails for others to follow. Impatience, recklessness, or an overly ego-centered approach to success could be his downfall. (Knowing Dave Grohl, however, he is likely to get right back on his feet!)
In order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions, the process must be interesting and mentally stimulating, as Grohl gets bored with work that is not intellectually challenging. Dave Grohl needs variety and social stimulation as well. One problem he may have is saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, or to the wrong person. Dave needs to watch his words. At time, his tongue or even sense of humor can get Dave Grohl in trouble with superiors.
In many ways Dave's rise in the world is an easy one, aided by his personal charm and attractiveness, his ability to please people and his excellent social instincts. Artistic ambitions are another manifestation of such.
