Elio de Angelis
Elio de Angelis is actually a more sensitive, vulnerable and compassionate person than his proud and somewhat vain manner (described in the previous chapter) would suggest. Although he maintains a strong, confident facade, he is actually quite soft, understanding and caring.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Elio de Angelis as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though de Angelis may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Elio de Angelis usually keeps to himself.
Elio shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Elio has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Elio de Angelis sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, de Angelis tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Elio has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. de Angelis will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and de Angelis tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Elio de Angelis does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Elio de Angelis has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around de Angelis more than it bothers him.
Elio de Angelis craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable or taboo. Elio may hide his interests or inclinations, except from those who know him very intimately. Elio de Angelis is rarely content with himself and his life, and he has an inner urge to continually delve deeper than ever before. Elio is also highly interested in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
The above description of Elio de Angelis is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Elio de Angelis tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in his makeup and he generally knows what he wants and what will make him happy.
de Angelis can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Elio de Angelis enjoys fine health as well.
de Angelis occasionally gambles, splurges or overextends himself in ways that may be at odds with his usual way of doing things. Exaggerating his accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up his own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Elio de Angelis also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable him to recover from the negative consequences of his excesses, and to learn from them.
While Elio de Angelis does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps de Angelis' optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Elio de Angelis tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Elio de Angelis has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Elio de Angelis tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
He is prone to fanaticism and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Elio de Angelis does not always consciously understand why he feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as he does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in de Angelis' life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is likely to profoundly influence Elio de Angelis and shape important life decisions and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Elio de Angelis has a strong will and the desire to be successful no matter what obstacles or resistance he has to overcome. Whatever he does, he knows what he wants to get out of it and drives toward that end with great vigor.
de Angelis is capable of extraordinary physical or mental efforts to gain success and achieve something that will bring him recognition and respect. Elio de Angelis has a strong need for authority and power over others and is likely to perform better in a leading position.
With his charm and outgoing personality Elio de Angelis has no trouble attracting people and he enjoys pleasant and congenial relationships with them. He may choose social contact with generous or wealthy people and would prefer to live in a beautiful home.
Elio de Angelis tends to impose his will upon others in a rather ruthless way, but on the other hand he may also be imposed upon by others. Elio feels a constant need to fight for leadership and has a great desire to become a public figure.
Elio de Angelis loves to entertain and likes to cultivate social contacts. He enjoys forming close personal relationships with others and most of them should be harmonious. Elio prefers teamwork rather than separate efforts to realize his goals.
