Although Edward Norton comes across as a very private, somewhat wary and enigmatic individual (as described on the previous page), there is another, quite different side to him: a person who really wants to be noticed, known, loved and admired.
Proud and intensely individual, Edward Norton really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to him, and he cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Edward Norton must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Edward Norton needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Edward has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Edward Norton also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Edward Norton, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Edward wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams. Though Norton appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Edward Norton also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Edward Norton loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. He is also immensely loyal and will defend his loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend his pride or betray his trust. However, Edward Norton likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Edward needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Norton's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Norton.
Edward Norton 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.
Norton's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with his conscious intentions and desires, therefore Edward Norton is able to proceed in his life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Edward's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
Edward is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and he can get lost in his dreams, fantasies and visions. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Edward Norton is also drawn to mysticism and he has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Norton may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make his way in the world. He is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
He is warm-hearted, kind, generous and very popular, especially with the opposite sex. Norton's happy feelings rub off onto others and everyone enjoys being with him. Due to a protective and encouraging upbringing, his relationships with his parents are good.
He is somewhat excitable and quickly aroused. Edward Norton could be a little self-centered, but at the same time also magnetic. Edward likes to flirt and tends to fall in love at first sight, but he then transfers his affections to someone else for no apparent reason.
Norton alternates between aggression and apathy and sometimes feels that he is unable to meet all the demands made on him. Once Edward Norton becomes aware of what he needs to do, however, he is capable of working long and hard, not giving up until his work is done.
