Although Gustav Fechner initially appears to be the essence of tact and diplomacy (as described on the previous page), he is not as gentle and peace loving as he may seem. Although Gustav Fechner prefers harmony, he is willing to fight or aggressively pursue his own interest if need be. People who get to know Gustav more than just superficially realize there is much more to him than his exterior coat of charm.
He may be at odds with himself at times because he has both a strong urge for togetherness and a powerful yearning for independence.
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. Gustav Fechner 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 Fechner's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Gustav Fechner 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. Gustav likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Gustav Fechner 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, Gustav Fechner also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Fechner, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Gustav Fechner believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Gustav Fechner 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 Fechner's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Gustav Fechner to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Gustav Fechner would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Gustav Fechner to do so.
Gustav Fechner invests a tremendous amount of his creative energy into his relationships with others, particularly his marriage or other close partnerships. Gustav feels that he needs others in order to be all that he can be, and he is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to promote mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Gustav Fechner can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of his.
Fechner 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, Gustav Fechner enjoys fine health as well.
Gustav has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Gustav Fechner tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, he never gives up on his hopes for the future. Fechner tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
At times Gustav Fechner may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter his direction in life or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly atypical. When his life becomes too predictable, Gustav may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how he is doing it. These impulses may seem at odds with his conscious intent and desires for himself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Gustav Fechner that needs to be expressed now and then.
Fechner depends a great deal on other people's reactions to him and rarely acts until he sees how he affects others. Gustav Fechner must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Gustav should also learn to rely heavily on his hunches.
