drive and ambition
Jesse Jackson has a warrior's attitude - decisive, courageous, and bold. Jesse tends to always want action, even when waiting for an appropriate time or not doing something (simply letting things alone to resolve themselves) would actually be more efficient and effective. He absolutely cannot tolerate being passive or even patient about getting what he wants. Jesse Jackson feels that it is up to him to take the initiative and he goes after his goal or desire very aggressively.
He is also self-reliant, does not depend on others to do things for him or help him along, and Jesse Jackson is often irritated when other people offer advice or direction. Cooperation rarely comes easily to him. He is willful and can be quite oblivious to others' desires or feelings when he is pursuing something he wants. He is highly competitive, enjoys a challenge or a good fight, and may be downright pugnacious at times. Abounding in energy and enthusiasm at the start of a new venture, Jesse Jackson needs a very positive response and encouragement to sustain his interest in it. If a project is not successful rather quickly, he is apt to drop it and move on to something else, rather than rework or refine it. The desire to blaze a trail, to do things in a new way - the Jackson way - is very strong in him. Jackson can discover, invent, and initiate new things, but is impatient and may lack the stamina and perseverance needed to complete a long-term project.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Jesse Jackson enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. He is quite forthright and sometimes tactless. Jackson can be very convincing about his point of view, but he is prone to a "hard-sell" approach which sometimes backfires. Challenging mental work is a good avenue for Jesse's aggressive intellect.
An intense team-worker, Jesse Jackson is likely to realize plans that he makes in common with others. He may prefer to work with partners rather than alone and could form relationships with others for the purpose of working together.
He is very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity and good will. Jesse Jackson notices these qualities (or the lack thereof) more quickly than others and brings them up frequently. He is philosophical about life and very perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of his own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious, metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.
Language, words, communication, networking, clarity of speech or writing, being a messenger or go-between - these are key features in his career, as well as how Jesse Jackson goes about achieving his goals and ambitions. "Work smarter, not harder" is Jackson's motto.
Jackson can be rather antagonistic toward those in authority. Even without realizing it, he may convey this attitude and he may well be threatening to those in power. Thus, however well-meaning Jesse Jackson is, he may find his initiatives or projects meet with little favor. Working independently might be Jesse's best option.
