His apparent gentleness and noncompetitive stance toward life (described in the previous chapter) may be very deceiving because at heart he is a "warrior". Francesco Quinn may feel at odds with himself, sometimes being very passive or benevolent, and at other times, very assertive and concerned primarily with himself. Both qualities are intrinsic to Francesco's nature.
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. Francesco Quinn 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 Quinn's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Francesco Quinn 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. Francesco likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Francesco Quinn 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, Francesco Quinn also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Quinn, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Francesco Quinn believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Francesco Quinn 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 Quinn's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Francesco Quinn to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Francesco Quinn would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Francesco Quinn to do so.
Francesco Quinn has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Quinn can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clashes with other strong individuals. Francesco Quinn feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
He is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. He enjoys competition, and his initiative and self-confidence make Francesco Quinn a winner.
He is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence and cheerful generosity. His good will and friendliness win him many allies. Francesco Quinn also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Francesco expects the best, and usually gets it.
At times Francesco Quinn may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter his direction in life or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly atypical. When his life becomes too predictable, Francesco may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how he is doing it. These impulses may seem at odds with his conscious intent and desires for himself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Francesco Quinn that needs to be expressed now and then.
