Behind Coulthard's rather secretive and guarded exterior (as described on the previous page), he is very competitive, dynamic and driven. This aspect of Coulthard's character is described in more detail in this chapter.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, relying on no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence and courage. David Coulthard believes in being totally honest, true to himself and his own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Coulthard's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
David Coulthard craves the freedom to do things in his own way, and he works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not his style. David likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
David Coulthard loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for him. He is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though he may sometimes be perceived as a fool, David Coulthard also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Coulthard, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. David Coulthard believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. David Coulthard hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting his own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for him.
He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. He is often so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Coulthard's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes David Coulthard to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. David Coulthard would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows David Coulthard to do so.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. David Coulthard prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Coulthard invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and inner life.
The above description of David Coulthard is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. David Coulthard tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in his makeup and he generally knows what he wants and what will make him happy.
He is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. David Coulthard often feels that he needs to fight to get what he wants, and he tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. He is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
David has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. His self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit him in an almost magical way. His optimism and cheerful generosity also win Coulthard many allies and successes in life.
Along with his energy and drive, David Coulthard has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Coulthard, as well as a doer and a fighter. David wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for him.
He is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. His spiritual values color David's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
He is inclined to feel uncomfortable or restrained in some way in the presence of others and prefer to be alone. David Coulthard is modest and shy in his approach to others and tends to accept more responsibility than he really needs to.
David Coulthard has a great desire for freedom and independence and is subject to strong emotional tensions. He is very creative and forges ahead tirelessly. But Coulthard tends to make the highest demands on his physical energy and is prone to over-stimulate his nerves.
