Although Greg Bautzer appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), he is also a "warrior". Bautzer sometimes feels torn between these two facets of his character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Greg Bautzer often think that he is a "softy", but later find out that he is strong willed and pursues his goals aggressively.
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. Greg Bautzer 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 Bautzer's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Greg Bautzer 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. Greg likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Greg Bautzer 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, Greg Bautzer also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Bautzer, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Greg Bautzer believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Greg Bautzer hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting his own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for him.
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. He is often so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Bautzer's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Greg Bautzer to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Greg Bautzer would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Greg Bautzer to do so.
Bautzer is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Greg Bautzer is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Bautzer's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with his conscious intentions and desires, therefore Greg Bautzer is able to proceed with his life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Greg's male-female relationships will also reflect this state of internal harmony.
Bautzer can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Greg Bautzer enjoys fine health as well.
Bautzer occasionally gambles, splurges or overextends himself in ways that may be at odds with his usual way of doing things. Exaggerating his accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up his own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Greg Bautzer also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable him to recover from the negative consequences of his excesses, and to learn from them.
He is strong-willed, forceful and independent. Bautzer knows what he wants, but sometimes may act too impulsively, causing quarrels or disagreement with others. Greg Bautzer tends to judge himself and others quite severely, but he is very sincere, honest and trustworthy.
Greg Bautzer has a great desire for freedom and independence and is subject to strong emotional tensions. He is very creative and forges ahead tirelessly. But Bautzer tends to make the highest demands on his physical energy and is prone to over-stimulate his nerves.
