Although Joe Francis appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), he is also a "warrior". Francis 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 Joe Francis 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. Joe Francis 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 Francis' gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Joe Francis 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. Joe likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Joe Francis 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, Joe Francis also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Francis, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Joe Francis believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Joe Francis 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 Francis' relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Joe Francis to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Joe Francis would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Joe Francis to do so.
Francis is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Joe Francis is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Joe Francis 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 Joe does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Francis, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
While Joe Francis deeply appreciates beauty and has a great desire for love, he is in no way frivolous or indiscriminate in his affections. Francis can be very frugal and sparing with both money and emotions.
Joe Francis has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Francis also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about himself which will win him the confidence of others, especially his superiors.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Joe Francis also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
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 Joe's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
Appearing successful and attractive to the public is important to him. Joe Francis probably enjoys wearing stylish clothes and modern jewelry. He tends to seek admiration from others and social acceptance is necessary to Joe's well-being.
He may lack direction and drive and tends to compare himself unfavorably to others. Francis alternates between caution and unrealistic expectations and lets others expect too much of him. But Joe Francis plods forward steadily, reaching success later in life.
Joe Francis has a great desire for freedom and independence and is subject to strong emotional tensions. He is very creative and forges ahead tirelessly. But Francis tends to make the highest demands on his physical energy and is prone to over-stimulate his nerves.
