Behind Way's proud and magnanimous demeanor (as described on the previous page) lies a real go-getter. Others feel that he is rather narcissistic. Gerard Way should strive to always be aware of others' needs and concerns to prove this criticism wrong!
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. Gerard Way 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 Way's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Gerard Way 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. Gerard likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Gerard Way 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, Gerard Way also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate.

Gerard Way believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Gerard Way hates being ill or in a position of dependency.

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.

Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Way's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Gerard Way to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums.
