drive and ambition
John Malkovich seesaws between being too pushy, confrontational and insistent on doing things his way, and being too eager to please, without a clear, definite goal of his own. John Malkovich strives for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. He may feel frustrated at times that he cannot simply do what HE wants and that he must always accommodate the needs and desires of others. Or he may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive manner if he does not have the support and approval of other people. Either way, he is not a loner. John Malkovich achieves his goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player. He is very concerned with the concept of fairness and becomes quite indignant and vocal if he senses someone is being taken advantage of. John Malkovich avoids extremism and favors a balanced, moderate approach to living. He is unlikely to push himself too hard or to become fanatically driven to reach his goals.
John Malkovich often buys things on impulse and he can be reckless with his material resources and money. John has certain possessions that he is extremely attached to and possessive of.

John has an enterprising spirit, a good sense of timing and the ability to sense what will succeed and what will not. Malkovich usually makes fortunate work or business decisions. He enjoys healthy competition and has a rather playful, good-humored attitude toward it. John Malkovich mostly competes with himself to see how far he can go or how much he can accomplish. John likes to keep stretching his limits.
Intensely restless, dynamic and energetic, he is always on the go. When John Malkovich wants something, he wants it NOW, and he acts decisively and impulsively, albeit sometimes hastily and prematurely. Impatient, high-strung, and often nervous and tense, John finds it difficult to slow down, pace himself or relax. He is fiercely individualistic and independent, self-willed and intolerant of restraints and restrictions imposed by others. John Malkovich has a reckless disregard for authority and can be extremely rebellious. Cooperating with others is not Malkovich's strong point! He is often brutally frank and abrupt with people, and can be quite impersonal when he is pursuing a desired goal. He may demonstrate an explosive temper when his will is blocked. John Malkovich has a superabundance of energy and he needs a great deal of personal freedom to do things in his own style and at his own pace.
His competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what John Malkovich can actually accomplish.

John Malkovich has a very active and fertile imagination and Malkovich's ambitions are never strictly mundane, practical and concrete. John Malkovich has a strong desire to act out his fantasies, dreams, visions and ideals. Artistic creation, drama, or other areas in which Malkovich can express himself imaginatively are ideally suited to him. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to Malkovich, and he needs to have some lofty dream or something grander than his own narrow personal interests to live for. Sometimes Malkovich may be confused about exactly how and where to direct his energy and he often drifts along rather than making clear decisions about what he wants. John Malkovich has a passive side and at times lacks the will power, physical energy, strength and fighting spirit to achieve his aims.
When John Malkovich wants something, he can be amazingly persistent and unrelenting, even a bit obsessed, although quiet about it.
