Behind Al-Fayed's proud and magnanimous demeanor (as described on the previous page) lies a real go-getter. Others feel that he is rather narcissistic. Dodi al-Fayed should strive to always be aware of others' needs and concerns to prove this criticism wrong!
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. Dodi al-Fayed 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 Al-Fayed's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Dodi al-Fayed 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. Dodi likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Dodi al-Fayed 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, Dodi al-Fayed also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Al-Fayed, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.

Dodi al-Fayed believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Dodi al-Fayed 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 Al-Fayed's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Dodi al-Fayed to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Dodi al-Fayed would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Dodi al-Fayed to do so.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Al-Fayed. Dodi al-Fayed 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. Dodi al-Fayed may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Dodi al-Fayed 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. Dodi has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Dodi sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Dodi really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Dodi has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Dodi al-Fayed tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic.
