Although Klaus Schwab appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), he is also a "warrior". Schwab 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 Klaus Schwab 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. Klaus Schwab 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 Schwab's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Klaus Schwab 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. Klaus likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Klaus Schwab 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, Klaus Schwab also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Schwab, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Klaus Schwab believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Klaus Schwab 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 Schwab's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Klaus Schwab to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Klaus Schwab would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Klaus Schwab to do so.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Schwab. Klaus Schwab has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Klaus Schwab may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Klaus Schwab has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He progresses rather slowly in life, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for him to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Klaus likes to be in control of himself.
His mind is very active and his judgment usually is sound. Although Klaus Schwab'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.
