Drake Bell seems much more objective, unemotional and matter-of-fact than he really is. Despite his fussiness and perfectionism (described in the previous chapter), he is actually very caring and loving. Drake Bell needs to make sure to openly express his feelings because otherwise, others do not realize how much he cares about them.
Drake has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to Bell to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Bell tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Drake likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. Drake Bell has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of his life centers on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Drake Bell than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for him to judge situations fairly and objectively because his personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Drake Bell takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around himself to shield himself from pain and rejection. Drake Bell feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Drake Bell needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish himself; otherwise Drake Bell becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Drake Bell functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. Bell often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Drake Bell also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Bell's strong points. His faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Bell. Drake Bell has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Drake Bell may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Drake has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he has the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from his father or other significant men in his life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Drake and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of his greatest handicaps, and at times he may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of his own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in his life. Drake Bell needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities may say.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Drake Bell also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Drake Bell is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to his own detriment. His ideals and spiritual values motivate Drake Bell, and he cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what he does. Otherwise Drake Bell becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Drake.
Drake Bell deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Drake 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. Drake likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
His physical energy is strong and Drake Bell is able to make an extra effort and work quite hard at any task he wants to do. Bell can act quickly and he gets a great deal accomplished in a hurry. But Drake Bell also has a tendency to be reckless and accident-prone.
