Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Garry Marshall likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. He is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. He is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Marshall must have something of his own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that he can develop and manage according to his own will and vision. Whatever Garry does, he does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. He likes to put his own personal stamp on it.
