drive and ambition
John Bardeen avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. His ego drive is not very dominant and Bardeen is not especially ambitious or eager to push his way to the top. He may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which John Bardeen will really fight is when he senses that his loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case he is a fierce defender. John Bardeen has a very strong protective side. He acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone he perceives as threatening to John's home or family. However, John Bardeen will rarely initiate a confrontation. His goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
He is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. John Bardeen is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. His energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in his home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping Bardeen to achieve his goals and desires.
He is a doer and an achiever. Energetic, courageous, and often impatient, John Bardeen will forge ahead with his plans regardless of others' reservations. In fact, Bardeen often feels other people get in his way and he prefers working on his own. John is active, assertive, and rather competitive as well.
John Bardeen works hard and patiently to achieve his objectives and perseveres in spite of difficulties and discouragement. When concentrating on a single, clearly defined goal, John is able to accomplish a great deal, but he often feels that the path is long and arduous, and that he must struggle on alone and shoulder the burden single-handedly.
He is capable of great self-control and self-denial and can be a hard taskmaster, expecting far too much of himself. He also tends to hold himself back and doubt his own power and ability. John Bardeen feels that he meets with great resistance whenever he tries to assert himself or take initiative. Anger and frustration can be big problems for John Bardeen, especially when he tries to work with other people or depend too much on others for support. John works best in solitude.
His imagination is great and Bardeen tends to think with a purpose in mind. He is able to function despite a degree of uncertainty that colors his actions, and he is likely to have an alternate plan when matters do not progress the way John wants them to.
His energy may be a bit low and Bardeen does not seem to have enough stamina to resist external powers. John Bardeen could easily be used as a medium, or someone else may set him up as a tool to further their interests without John knowing what is really going on.
John Bardeen has a good balance between idealism, optimism, and vision for the future on one hand and a realistic sense of what can actually be achieved on the other hand. His judgment and business sense are usually quite good. John possesses patience and the ability to accept limitation and frustration on the way to his goals.
Older, more experienced individuals or mentors are likely to play a significant and beneficial role in John's life.
He may have to overcome something in his background or personal past in order to achieve his long-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes John Bardeen is apt to feel pulled in two different directions - what others expect of him or what he needs to do to progress, versus what his old conditioning or his emotional predisposition would have him do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.
Sometimes his emotional or romantic interests detract John Bardeen from his professional progress and the achievement of his long-range goals. Friendship with colleagues and especially superiors may be lacking, or prove to be a detriment to Bardeen in a roundabout way. It seems that John must choose either business or pleasure - work or love. These two arenas simply do not go together very well for him.
