Herbert von Karajan
Behind von Karajan's rather secretive and guarded exterior (as described on the previous page), he is very competitive, dynamic and driven. This aspect of von Karajan's character is described in more detail in this chapter.
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. Herbert von Karajan 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 von Karajan's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Herbert von Karajan 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. Herbert likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Herbert von Karajan 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, Herbert von Karajan also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for von Karajan, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Herbert von Karajan believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Herbert von Karajan 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 von Karajan's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Herbert von Karajan to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Herbert von Karajan would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Herbert von Karajan to do so.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Herbert von Karajan prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
von Karajan invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and inner life.
von Karajan's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with his conscious intentions and desires, therefore Herbert von Karajan is able to proceed with his life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Herbert's male-female relationships will also reflect this state of internal harmony.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, his life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Herbert von Karajan is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. von Karajan has a rebellious streak and he often feels he is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to him.
Herbert is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and he can get lost in his dreams, fantasies and visions. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Herbert von Karajan is also drawn to mysticism and he has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, von Karajan may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make his way in the world. He is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
His physique tends to be sensitive and his vitality may be a bit low. Herbert von Karajan is very impressionable and somewhat unrealistic. Sometimes his idealism could be confused or impractical, and von Karajan can be rebellious or else apathetic.
