Although Jason Kidd appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), he is also a "warrior". Kidd sometimes feels torn between these two facets of his character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Jason Kidd often think that he is a "softy", but later find out that he is strong willed and pursues his goals aggressively.
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. Jason Kidd 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 Kidd's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Jason Kidd 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. Jason likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Jason Kidd 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, Jason Kidd also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Kidd, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Jason Kidd believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Jason Kidd 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 Kidd's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Jason Kidd to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Jason Kidd would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Jason Kidd to do so.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Kidd. Jason Kidd has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Jason Kidd may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Jason Kidd is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Jason does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Kidd, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
Jason Kidd feels that he has the support of his family or others in his environment for his creative efforts and personal goals, which enables him to act with confidence. He is able to satisfy both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. He is in harmony with himself and is therefore an effective individual.
His life is apt to be blessed with more than his share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening up to him at just the right time. Because Jason Kidd is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, he continues to generate success in his life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Jason should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
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 Jason's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
He is infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission and can be extremely driven, obsessed and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it effectively is definitely on his agenda. Jason Kidd confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach him about power and eventually force Kidd to claim his own.
