Behind Roberts' proud and magnanimous demeanor (as described on the previous page) lies a real go-getter. Others feel that he is rather narcissistic. Eric Roberts 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. Eric Roberts 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 Roberts' gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Eric Roberts 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. Eric likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Eric Roberts 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, Eric Roberts also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate.

Eric Roberts believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Eric Roberts 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 Roberts' relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Eric Roberts to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Eric Roberts would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Eric Roberts 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 Roberts.
