Although Kenneth Lay initially appears to be the essence of tact and diplomacy (as described on the previous page), he is not as gentle and peace loving as he may seem. Although Kenneth Lay prefers harmony, he is willing to fight or aggressively pursue his own interest if need be. People who get to know Kenneth more than just superficially realize there is much more to him than his exterior coat of charm.
He may be at odds with himself at times because he has both a strong urge for togetherness and a powerful yearning for independence.
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. Kenneth Lay 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 Lay's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Kenneth Lay 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. Kenneth likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Kenneth Lay 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, Kenneth Lay also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Lay, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Kenneth Lay believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Kenneth Lay 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 Lay's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Kenneth Lay to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Kenneth Lay would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Kenneth Lay to do so.
Kenneth Lay invests a tremendous amount of his creative energy into his relationships with others, particularly his marriage or other close partnerships. Kenneth feels that he needs others in order to be all that he can be, and he is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to bring about mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Kenneth Lay can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of his.
The above description of Kenneth Lay is so deeply ingrained that he has little objectivity and often little appreciation for other, different ways of approaching life. Kenneth Lay tends to be one-sided. There is little ambiguity in his makeup and he generally knows what he wants and what will make him happy.
Kenneth Lay tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Kenneth Lay has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Lay can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Kenneth Lay enjoys fine health as well.
Along with his energy and drive, Kenneth Lay has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Lay, as well as a doer and a fighter. Kenneth wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for him.
Kenneth Lay tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, he could have been dominated in his relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Lay may have become passive, identified himself as a helpless victim, or tried to gain his desires in underhanded ways.
Kenneth's hypersensitivity to his environment is apt to be a challenge for him in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness, or dissonance in any form is apt to affect Kenneth Lay more than most people.
His mind is very active and his judgment usually is sound. Although Kenneth Lay's thinking is influenced by his feelings, he is inclined to think in realistic and practical terms. He is in control of his feelings and is able to express them rationally.
