In many ways, Dennis Hopper contradicts himself! While he enjoys traveling and adventure (as mentioned in the previous chapter), Hopper can be very slow to move. Stability and security are as important to him as exploring new worlds. Dennis Hopper needs to find a place in his life to express both urges: the impulse to take risks and to go where he has never gone before, and the need for order, predictability, and staying with the tried-and-true.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Hopper's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Dennis Hopper has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Dennis Hopper will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Hopper can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Dennis Hopper also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Dennis Hopper has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Hopper for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Dennis Hopper usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Dennis Hopper also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Dennis has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Hopper's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Dennis Hopper lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
His energies are directed to either perfecting his techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Dennis Hopper's, and he is quite a perfectionist!
Hopper can easily become overly identified or involved with the function he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
He is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Dennis Hopper has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Dennis Hopper has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
Dennis Hopper undergoes deep, transformative changes in his life with relative ease and a minimum of conscious resistance. Because he does not avoid the depths, Hopper has access to a lot of personal power and strength. Without realizing it or seeking it, Dennis is apt to have quite a potent effect on the people he comes into contact with, even superficially. Others sense that Dennis Hopper is a force to be reckoned with.
