The combination of self-reliance and independence - as described in the previous chapter - and his powerful will and creative energy - as described below - makes David Crosby a force to be reckoned with! He cannot take a back seat to anyone, and he has tremendous leadership potential.
Proud and intensely individual, David Crosby really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions.

For David Crosby, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. David wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams. Though Crosby appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
David Crosby also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. David Crosby loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. He is also immensely loyal and will defend his loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend his pride or betray his trust. However, David Crosby likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, David needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Crosby's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.

David Crosby tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. David Crosby has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
David Crosby often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. David has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging.
