Though Freddie Prinze seems powerful and intense in a quiet sort of way (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is really quite soft, sentimental and vulnerable inside.
Freddie has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to Prinze to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Prinze tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Freddie likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. Freddie Prinze has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of his life centers on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Freddie Prinze than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for him to judge situations fairly and objectively because his personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Freddie Prinze takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around himself to shield himself from pain and rejection. Freddie Prinze feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Freddie Prinze needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish himself; otherwise Freddie Prinze becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Freddie Prinze functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. Prinze often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Freddie Prinze also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Prinze's strong points. His faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Freddie Prinze craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable, or taboo. He may hide his interests or inclinations, except from those who know Freddie very intimately. Freddie Prinze is rarely content with himself and his life, and he has an inner urge to be continually going farther or deeper than him ever have before. Freddie has also a strong interest in social power and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.
Highly competitive and easily provoked, Freddie Prinze needs challenges and opponents to pit himself against. Freddie thrives on contest and rivalry. At times his vigorous, combative way of achieving the things he wants antagonizes other people. If Freddie Prinze uses force too often, others will turn against him and oppose him at every turn.
He is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence and cheerful generosity. His good will and friendliness win him many allies. Freddie Prinze also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Freddie expects the best, and usually gets it.
While Freddie Prinze does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Prinze's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Freddie Prinze tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Realistic and practical, Freddie Prinze sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Prinze possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Freddie Prinze also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Prinze often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
