Although Dennis Quaid appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), he is also a "warrior". Quaid sometimes feels torn between these two facets of his character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Dennis Quaid often think that he is a "softy", but later find out that he is strong willed and pursues his goals aggressively.
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. Dennis Quaid 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 Quaid's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Dennis Quaid 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. Dennis likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Dennis Quaid 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, Dennis Quaid also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Quaid, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Dennis Quaid believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Dennis Quaid 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 Quaid's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Dennis Quaid to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Dennis Quaid would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Dennis Quaid to do so.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Quaid. Dennis Quaid has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Dennis Quaid may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
His life is apt to be blessed with more than his share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening to him at just the right time. Because Dennis Quaid is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, he continues to generate successes in his life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Dennis should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, his life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Dennis Quaid is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Quaid has a rebellious streak and he often feels he is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to him.
Dennis Quaid deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Dennis has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, he pursues his desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and he may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Dennis likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
Dennis Quaid tends to become excited and upset at the slightest cause, generating tension with others. Dennis also could encounter strange experiences or coincidences with others. He may have a feeling of being different than others and he wants to be his own person.
