Many of the traits described in Chapter 2 are emphasized again below. Dave Grohl should not allow himself to become so responsible and mature that he has no time left for play.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Grohl. Dave Grohl will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Dave Grohl has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Dave Grohl seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Dave has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Dave Grohl has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Dave Grohl plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Grohl.
Grohl's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Dave Grohl has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Grohl can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clashes with other strong individuals. Dave Grohl feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Dave Grohl has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Dave Grohl tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Dave Grohl also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. Dave Grohl takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Dave, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Dave Grohl may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
Dave Grohl deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Dave has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, he pursues his desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and he may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Dave likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
Maintaining relationships with friends and associates is very important to Dave Grohl and he keeps in touch with them through his shared interests. His friends are likely to be very supportive to Grohl in everything he does.
