Ho Chi Minh
The way Ho Chi Minh appears or comes across to others is very congruent with his true nature; what he sees is what you get. The description below corroborates what you read about Ho Chi Minh in the previous chapter. If at all possible, Nguyen Sinh Cung should avoid living in large cities, as he needs natural surroundings.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Nguyen Sinh Cung's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Ho Chi Minh has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Ho Chi Minh will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Nguyen Sinh Cung can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Ho Chi Minh also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Ho Chi Minh has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Nguyen Sinh Cung for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Ho Chi Minh usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Ho Chi Minh also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Ho Chi Minh has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Nguyen Sinh Cung's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Ho Chi Minh lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
Ho Chi Minh has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Nguyen Sinh Cung can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Ho Chi Minh feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
The above description of Ho Chi Minh is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Ho Chi Minh tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in his makeup and he generally knows what he wants and what will make him happy.
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Ho Chi Minh has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Ho Chi Minh tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Ho Chi Minh also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Sensitive and imaginative, he is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits and to mysticism. Ho Chi Minh is impressionable and receptive, and often has experiences that are unusual and unexplainable by the rational mind. Ho Chi Minh has an abundance of dreams, visions and longings, but does not always have the concentrated will and stamina to make them materialize. Gentle, idealistic and peace loving, Ho Chi Minh often seeks to avoid the harsh realities of life. Ho Chi Minh has an ethereal quality about him.
Nguyen Sinh Cung depends a great deal on other people's reactions to him and rarely acts until he sees how he affects others. Ho Chi Minh must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Ho Chi Minh should also learn to rely heavily on his hunches.
Ho Chi Minh has a powerful personality and a tendency to run roughshod over others. Ho Chi Minh 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.
