Though Ernest Borgnine seems steady and down-to-earth (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is also quite idealistic, as described below. He may sometimes feel torn between maintaining stability and the status quo versus experimenting with the unconventional and stirring up change. Ernest Borgnine has a keen business sense and is very effective in any organization or large business.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Ernest Borgnine cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Borgnine can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Ernest has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Ernest Borgnine probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Ernest Borgnine seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Ernest makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Ernest Borgnine thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Ernest Borgnine stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Ernest Borgnine was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Ernest has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Borgnine. Ernest Borgnine has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Ernest Borgnine may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Ernest Borgnine is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to his own detriment. His ideals and spiritual values motivate Ernest Borgnine, 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 Ernest Borgnine becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Ernest.
He is apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Ernest Borgnine 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 Borgnine's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is apt to profoundly influence Ernest Borgnine and shape important decisions in his life, and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Ernest has artistic talents and interests and appreciates art in many forms. Ernest Borgnine could become an actor and he has good judgment of the real value of things. Borgnine has an affectionate nature with a cheerful disposition and strong feelings of love.
He may be a bit high-strung and over-zealous in the pursuit of his endeavors. Borgnine always seems to be in a hurry and has the ability to evaluate situations quickly. Ernest Borgnine has a brilliant mind and possibly could invent something.
Ernest Borgnine tends to become excited and upset at the slightest cause, generating tension with others. Ernest also could encounter strange experiences or coincidences with others. He may have a feeling of being different than others and he wants to be his own person.
