Although Fred Thompson comes across as a very private, somewhat wary and enigmatic individual (as described on the previous page), there is another, quite different side to him: a person who really wants to be noticed, known, loved and admired.
Proud and intensely individual, Fred Thompson really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to him, and he cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Fred Thompson must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Fred Thompson needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Fred has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Fred Thompson also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Fred Thompson, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Fred wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams. Though Thompson appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Fred Thompson also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Fred Thompson loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. He is also immensely loyal and will defend his loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend his pride or betray his trust. However, Fred Thompson likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Fred needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Thompson's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Thompson. Fred Thompson has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Fred Thompson may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Fred Thompson 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. Fred has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Fred sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Fred really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Fred Thompson has a harmonious balance between his body, soul and spirit. He enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
Fred Thompson has a strong will and the desire to be successful no matter what obstacles or resistance he has to overcome. Whatever he does, he knows what he wants to get out of it and drives toward that end with great vigor.
