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

Ideally, Deng needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Xiaoping's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart.
