Although Diego Rivera appears humble and unassuming (as described on the previous page), inside he is much more of a risk taker and an adventurer. Diego Rivera is actually much less conservative and conventional than he seems initially. Behind Rivera's quiet, restrained exterior lies a much looser, free-spirited soul (as described below).
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Diego Rivera, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Diego Rivera probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Rivera can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Diego Rivera has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Rivera always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Diego Rivera has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Diego has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Rivera expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Diego's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Diego Rivera enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Rivera.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Diego Rivera prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Rivera invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and his inner life.
Diego Rivera is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Diego does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Rivera, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
