Costner's quiet, unassuming, rather modest facade (described in the previous chapter) is liable to mask certain far less modest goals and ambitions in life. Materially (or in other ways), he is much more aspiring than he may seem, and reaching the top academically or professionally is really important to him.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Costner. Kevin Costner will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Kevin Costner has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Kevin Costner seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Kevin has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Kevin Costner has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Kevin Costner plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Costner.
Costner's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Kevin Costner has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Kevin enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. He is very involved in his own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using his special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. Kevin Costner has a strong sense of pride.
Kevin Costner aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what he is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be his faults. Generally, however, Costner's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Kevin.
If he follows his true nature, his life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Kevin Costner cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Kevin finds it difficult to conform. His offbeat interests and tastes lead Costner to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Kevin Costner has a very creative, inventive streak.
Kevin is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and he can get lost in his dreams, fantasies and visions. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Kevin Costner is also drawn to mysticism and he has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Costner may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make his way in the world. He is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
He is apt to be a fanatic in some way, and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Kevin Costner does not always consciously understand why he feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as he does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Costner's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is apt to profoundly influence Kevin Costner and shape important decisions in his life, and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
