Behind Severi's rather secretive and guarded exterior (as described on the previous page), he is very competitive, dynamic and driven. This aspect of Severi's character is described in more detail in this chapter.
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 Severi 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 Severi's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Francesco Severi 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 Severi 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 Severi also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Severi, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Francesco Severi believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Francesco Severi 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 Severi's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Francesco Severi to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Francesco Severi would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Francesco Severi to do so.
His energies are directed toward either honing his professional techniques, skills and abilities or "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. Francesco Severi is highly motivated to strive for a state of wholeness or optimal functioning and he is quite a perfectionist!
Severi can easily become overly identified or involved with the task he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
Francesco Severi tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Francesco Severi has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Francesco Severi often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Francesco has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Francesco sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Francesco really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Severi seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. Francesco Severi tends to withdraw and his outlook in general could be a bit too negative. Francesco Severi should beware of letting his emotional tension react to his physical well-being.
