In addition to having an independent spirit, as described in the previous chapter, Jared Leto is also objective, pragmatic and quite ambitious. He is likely to work his way to the top of the ladder in some corporation, academic community or the like through his astute strategies combined with his willingness to take risks. Jared Leto aims to be the authority, the one in charge. At times his impulsiveness may be at odds with his conservative, responsible side (which is discussed below). Leto could experience ongoing internal tension between pleasing himself and acting spontaneously versus doing what he needs to do to get ahead and realize his long-range ambitions.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Leto. Jared Leto will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Jared Leto has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Jared Leto seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Jared has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Jared Leto has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Jared Leto plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Leto.
Leto's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Leto. Jared Leto has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Jared Leto may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
He is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Jared Leto often feels that he needs to fight to get what he wants, and he tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. He is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
He is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Jared often hides the intensity of his feelings and his personal motives and desires. Leto is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Jared Leto tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Jared Leto both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
Jared Leto has a pleasant and dreamy disposition with considerable romantic imagination. Jared has a strong longing for love, but he does not see others very clearly and may experience many disappointments in his emotional relationships.
He may find it hard to establish relationships with other people and he tends to look for more timid partners. Jared Leto could also have difficulty expressing his ideas to others as well as coming to an understanding with them.
