Although Marcel Aymé appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), he is also a "warrior". Aymé 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 Marcel Aymé 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. Marcel Aymé 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 Aymé's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Marcel Aymé 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. Marcel likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Marcel Aymé 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, Marcel Aymé also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Aymé, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Marcel Aymé believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Marcel Aymé 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 Aymé's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Marcel Aymé to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Marcel Aymé would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Marcel Aymé to do so.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Aymé. Marcel Aymé 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. Marcel Aymé may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Marcel Aymé feels that he has the support of his family or others in his environment for his creative efforts and personal goals, which enables him to act with confidence. He is able to satisfy both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. He is in harmony with himself and is therefore an effective individual.
He is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Marcel Aymé has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Marcel Aymé has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
His life is apt to be blessed with more than his share of helpful friends, fortuitous relationships, and doors opening up to him at just the right time. Because Marcel Aymé is usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, he continues to generate success in his life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Marcel should beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
Marcel Aymé has a strong will and the desire to be successful no matter what obstacles or resistance he has to overcome. Whatever he does, he knows what he wants to get out of it and drives toward that end with great vigor.
Aymé has a strong will and great determination and is willing to work hard to reach his goals. Marcel Aymé often takes on more than his share and labors untiringly, sparing himself no pain in his work. Marcel should guard against over-exerting himself physically.
