Behind Murphy's proud and magnanimous demeanor (as described on the previous page) lies a real go-getter. Others feel that he is rather narcissistic. Eddie Murphy 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. Eddie Murphy 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 Murphy's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Eddie Murphy 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. Eddie likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Eddie Murphy 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, Eddie Murphy also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Murphy, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Eddie Murphy believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Eddie Murphy 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 Murphy's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Eddie Murphy to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Eddie Murphy would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Eddie Murphy to do so.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Murphy.
Eddie Murphy has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Eddie Murphy, between his conscious attitudes and aspirations, and his deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs, and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Eddie may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with his subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in his body may well be a signal that Eddie Murphy is denying or suppressing the messages from his subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Eddie Murphy will learn to accept the two quite different aspects of his and to express both of them. If he cannot do this, Murphy is apt to attract many relationships into his life with people who reflect his denied or repressed qualities, and who seem to make his life difficult. (Read also chapter 4 in order to get a better picture of the duality described here.)
He is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Eddie Murphy often feels that he needs to fight to get what he wants, and he tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. He is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
Eddie Murphy has a harmonious balance between his body, soul and spirit. He enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
