drive and ambition
David Brudnoy avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. His ego drive is not very dominant and Brudnoy is not especially ambitious or eager to push his way to the top. He may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which David Brudnoy will really fight is when he senses that his loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case he is a fierce defender. David Brudnoy has a very strong protective side. He acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone he perceives as threatening to David's home or family. However, David Brudnoy will rarely initiate a confrontation. His goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
He is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. David Brudnoy is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. His energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in his home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping Brudnoy to achieve his goals and desires.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, David Brudnoy enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. He is quite forthright and sometimes tactless. Brudnoy can be very convincing about his point of view, but he is prone to a "hard-sell" approach which sometimes backfires. Challenging mental work is a good avenue for David's aggressive intellect.
Conscientious, responsible, and serious about his work, David Brudnoy accomplishes a great deal through his dedication. He is the person in the office or company who follows through, quietly sustains the effort, and keeps on going in spite of tedium, setbacks, or dry spells. This is often the key to David's success. However, David Brudnoy is humble about his accomplishments and contributions, and may thus not receive the recognition or recompense that he deserves.
David Brudnoy seems to be compelled to defend his rights and may be subject to angry upsets or quarrels in his relationships. At times David Brudnoy could be the force behind the scenes and may be attracted to some kind of secret mission, such as a secret agent.
His desire for a beautiful home, a comfortable, pleasing lifestyle, and time to relax and enjoy himself may well be the motivation for going out into the world and trying to achieve outward success. David Brudnoy may seesaw at times between his professional drives and desire for status, and the appeal of a rich personal life and home comforts.
Conflicts in his early childhood are apt to be played out in David's later professional life. Unresolved rivalry with a parent or sibling may result in antagonism toward superiors or competitors. If David Brudnoy can work through some of these past events, he will have even more energy and drive to achieve positive goals.
Discipline, concentration, a realistic sense of what is attainable, and steady dedication to achieving his ambitions are the keys to David's progress. David Brudnoy is apt to move slowly but constantly in the direction of his goals, and solid achievement is the outcome of this conservative approach.
Gaining his professional objectives or advancing in his career often requires considerable sacrifice on David's part. Specifically, David Brudnoy often feels that he must deny or at least compromise some very essential aspect of his in order to succeed professionally, protect his reputation, or what have you - and this is something Brudnoy may or may not be willing to do. Pure, unrestrained self-expression may well be more important to him than "going places" in a worldly sense. This is not to say David Brudnoy will not progress or succeed, only that he will do it on his own terms.
He is likely to be quite sensual and has a strong desire to become one in soul and body with the object of his affection. David Brudnoy may have a strong feeling that by himself he is not quite complete and that he needs someone else to make him whole.
A big dreamer, David Brudnoy loves comfort and is likely to promote human welfare. But Brudnoy could be somewhat of a fortune-hunter, likes to speculate, and has a tendency to squander his money. David Brudnoy is always hopeful and does not take life too seriously.
