Although Hans Bender comes across in a very gracious, tactful and considerate manner (as described on the previous page), he also holds some very definite points of view. Others may be surprised when they get to know Hans and recognize his willfulness and strong opinions.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Hans Bender cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Bender can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Hans has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Hans Bender probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Hans Bender seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Hans makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Hans Bender thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Hans Bender stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Hans Bender was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Hans has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Hans Bender has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Hans enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. He is very involved in his own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using his special talents be they artistic, athletic or intellectual. Hans Bender has a strong sense of pride.
Hans Bender tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Hans Bender has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Hans Bender often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Hans has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Hans sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Hans really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Hans Bender has a powerful personality and a tendency to run roughshod over others. Hans tends to inflict his will on them whether or not they are receptive. He is likely to gain respect from others through the demonstration of physical strength and bravery.
