Although Gordon Brown strives for honesty and candor, as described in the previous chapter, he is truly non-aggressive and kind, as discussed below. Gordon Brown often feels a great chasm between his idealism and the harsh realities that often require confrontation and sometimes conflict. However, he has a gift for being able to stand up for himself with integrity, but without malice or vindictiveness. His strength, combined with his compassion, can make Gordon Brown a leader who is deeply sensitive to the needs of others. Moreover, his pioneering spirit may spur Gordon to introduce new styles or concepts to the arts, music or other imaginative area.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Gordon Brown as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Brown may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Gordon Brown usually keeps to himself.
Gordon shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Gordon has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Gordon Brown sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Brown tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Gordon has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Brown will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Brown tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Gordon Brown does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Gordon Brown has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Brown more than it bothers him.
Gordon Brown tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where his efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged or unknown to the public. Brown may find it exceedingly uncomfortable to assert himself or get up in front of an audience.
Gordon has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he has the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from his father or other significant men in his life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Gordon and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of his greatest handicaps, and at times he may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of his own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in his life. Gordon Brown needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities may say.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Gordon Brown that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Brown can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
The unusual and unorthodox appeal to Brown, and he does not allow tradition, convention or other people's expectations to dictate how he is going to live his life. Gordon Brown craves freedom, adventure, excitement and discovery, and is not afraid of change. Gordon Brown possesses inventive and creative genius.
Gordon Brown probably has great intellectual ability and curiosity. Gordon never seem to run out of ideas and always welcomes the study of new subjects, the more abstract the better. But he also has the basic sense to translate abstract ideas into practical reality.
