Although Jesse McCartney appears gentle and soft, and he is sympathetic towards other people (as explained in the previous chapter), he is also a "warrior". McCartney sometimes feels torn between these two aspects of his: the sensitive, tender-hearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. Often people who first meet Jesse McCartney think that he is a "softy", but later find out that he is a person with a strong will and aggressive in pursuing his goals.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle your way through life, depending upon no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence, and courage. Jesse McCartney believes in being totally honest, true to oneself and one's own vision and convictions, even if that means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor, and authenticity are McCartney's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Jesse McCartney 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. Jesse likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Jesse McCartney 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 bring in some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are like death to him. He is not afraid of trying something that's never been done before, and even though he may be seen as a fool sometimes, Jesse McCartney also discovers, invents, and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for McCartney, and he wilts (or get very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic, and assertive. Jesse McCartney believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he thinks of his as a strong person - even invincible. Jesse McCartney hates being ill or in any way 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 has less facility in the receptive arts of relating to others, picking up subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing, and harmonizing. Often he is 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 go a long way in improving McCartney's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Jesse McCartney to be rather insensitive, and to therefore alienate others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his ends by using anger or some version of a temper tantrum. Jesse McCartney would gain much by learning to slow down, relax, and just let things be sometimes, but his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Jesse McCartney to do this.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to McCartney. Jesse McCartney 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. Jesse McCartney may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Realistic and practical, Jesse McCartney sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for McCartney possesses self-discipline, concentration, and perseverance. Jesse McCartney also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious in fulfilling his obligations. Often McCartney does things because he feels it is expected of him.
