Behind Chan's strong, proud appearance (described in the previous chapter), there is a very tender, sensitive, sentimental, feeling person. He is probably much shyer and more private than initially presumed.
Sing Lung has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to Chan to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Chan tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Sing Lung likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. Jackie Chan has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of his life centers on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Jackie Chan than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for him to judge situations fairly and objectively because his personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Jackie Chan takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around himself to shield himself from pain and rejection. Jackie Chan feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Jackie Chan needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish himself; otherwise Jackie Chan becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Jackie Chan functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. Chan often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Jackie Chan also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Chan's strong points. His faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Leading groups and classes and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Jackie Chan really shines and expresses his creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions comes naturally to him.
Jackie Chan 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. Jackie Chan has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
He is blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence and cheerful generosity. His good will and friendliness win him many allies. Jackie Chan also has grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. Sing Lung expects the best, and usually gets it.
