Behind Vandross' proud and magnanimous demeanor (as described on the previous page) lies a real go-getter. Others feel that he is rather narcissistic. Luther Vandross should strive to always be aware of others' needs and concerns to prove this criticism wrong!
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. Luther Vandross 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 Vandross' gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Luther Vandross 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. Luther likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Luther Vandross 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, Luther Vandross also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Vandross, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.

Luther Vandross believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person.

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 Vandross' relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Luther Vandross to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Luther Vandross would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Luther Vandross to do so.
