Although Henry Ford appears to be modest and shy (as described on the previous page), at heart he has a strong need to shine and be the center of attention. He is very self-conscious and self-critical however, and he often shies away from the limelight. His dilemma lies in the fact that he wants to take center stage, but doubts his abilities. Henry Ford needs to avoid being overly critical of himself and to practice hard at whatever he does so that he feels fully confident.
Proud and intensely individual, Henry Ford really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to him, and he cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Henry Ford must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Henry Ford needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Henry has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Henry Ford also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Henry Ford, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Henry wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams. Though Ford appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Henry Ford also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Henry Ford loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. He is also immensely loyal and will defend his loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend his pride or betray his trust. However, Henry Ford likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Henry needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Ford's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
Henry Ford 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. Asserting himself or getting up in front of an audience may be exceedingly uncomfortable for Ford.
Henry Ford 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. Henry Ford has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
His conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by his unconscious beliefs and desires. If Henry Ford overrides his instincts and emotions because they seem to lead him in a direction diametrically opposed to the one he consciously desires, his emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Henry Ford attends to his emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of his intuition, dreams and gut feelings, he will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
He is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. His spiritual values color Henry's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
He is somewhat excitable and quickly aroused. Henry Ford could be a little self-centered, but at the same time also magnetic. Henry likes to flirt and tends to fall in love at first sight, but he then transfers his affections to someone else for no apparent reason.
Henry has an optimistic and harmonious personality and he happily goes about the attainment of his goals. Ford knows how to make the best of life's opportunities and he gets along with everyone. Henry Ford has the good fortune to live in pleasant and agreeable circumstances.
He may find it hard to establish relationships with other people and he tends to look for more timid partners. Henry Ford could also have difficulty expressing his ideas to others as well as coming to an understanding with them.
