Although Gabriel Byrne is quite proud and likes to show off and impress other people with his accomplishments and appearance (as described on the previous page) - he is really quite practical, solid, and down to earth (as discussed below). Because of this, he is likely to actually earn the right to be admired - that is, to have actually done something to be proud of.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Byrne's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Gabriel Byrne has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Gabriel Byrne will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Byrne can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Gabriel Byrne also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Gabriel Byrne has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Byrne for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Gabriel Byrne usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Gabriel Byrne also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Gabriel has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Byrne's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Gabriel Byrne lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Byrne. Gabriel Byrne has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Gabriel Byrne may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Gabriel Byrne 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. Gabriel Byrne has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
He is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. He enjoys competition, and his initiative and self-confidence make Gabriel Byrne a winner.
He is somewhat excitable and quickly aroused. Gabriel Byrne could be a little self-centered, but at the same time also magnetic. Gabriel likes to flirt and tends to fall in love at first sight, but he then transfers his affections to someone else for no apparent reason.
Gabriel Byrne tends to become excited and upset at the slightest cause, generating tension with others. Gabriel also could encounter strange experiences or coincidences with others. He may have a feeling of being different than others and he wants to be his own person.
