Behind Pellow's rather secretive and guarded exterior (as described on the previous page), he is very competitive, dynamic and driven. This aspect of Pellow's character is described in more detail in this chapter.
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. Marti Pellow 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 Pellow's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Marti Pellow 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. Marti likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Marti Pellow 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, Marti Pellow also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Pellow, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Marti Pellow believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Marti Pellow 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 Pellow's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Marti Pellow to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Marti Pellow would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Marti Pellow to do so.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Marti Pellow prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Pellow invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and inner life.
Marti Pellow is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Marti does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Pellow, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
