M. Night Shyamalan
Although M. Night Shyamalan comes across as a very private, somewhat wary and enigmatic individual (as described on the previous page), there is another, quite different side to him: a person who really wants to be noticed, known, loved and admired.
Proud and intensely individual, M. Night Shyamalan really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to him, and he cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". M. Night Shyamalan must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. M. Night Shyamalan needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
M. Shyamalan has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. M. Night Shyamalan also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For M. Night Shyamalan, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. M. Shyamalan wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams. Though Shyamalan appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
M. Night Shyamalan also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. M. Night Shyamalan loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. He is also immensely loyal and will defend his loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend his pride or betray his trust. However, M. Night Shyamalan likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, M. Shyamalan needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Shyamalan's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Shyamalan. M. Night Shyamalan 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. M. Night Shyamalan may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
He is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. M. Night Shyamalan has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. M. Night Shyamalan has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
He is well aware of his limitations and has a strong desire to go his own way in life. There is a note of gravity to M. Shyamalan's personality and he appears somewhat somber. It is not easy for M. Night Shyamalan to relax and enjoy and he prefers to work in seclusion.
