Although Flavio Briatore enjoys conversing and interacting with people (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he also has a self-reliant, independent spirit. Briatore can go it alone if need be because Flavio Briatore likes to be a free agent. He likes to exchange ideas, but as stated below, he does not always listen.
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. Flavio Briatore 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 Briatore's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Flavio Briatore 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. Flavio likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Flavio Briatore 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, Flavio Briatore also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Briatore, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Flavio Briatore believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Flavio Briatore 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 Briatore's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Flavio Briatore to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Flavio Briatore would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Flavio Briatore to do so.
Leading groups and classes and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Flavio Briatore really shines and expresses his creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions comes naturally to him.
Flavio Briatore has a strong need to be with people whom he is emotionally close to. He is very sensitive to others emotional needs, lending a sympathetic ear to their problems. Peace and harmony in his personal surrounding and relationships are very important to Briatore.
Flavio Briatore has a strong need for intellectual relationships and associations and he likes to share his intellectual interests with others. This could be in meetings or by joining various clubs and organizations.
Flavio Briatore has a good relationship between his body and soul. Flavio Briatore tends to seek out the public and because of his strong personality, others will follow him. Flavio could do well in public relations.
