His pleasant manner and desire to relate harmoniously with others (as discussed in chapter 2), combined with his idealism, receptivity, and impressionability (as discussed below), make Mikhail Gorbachev very self-sacrificing and willing to go the extra mile for someone else's sake. Mikhail Gorbachev has to be wary of his tendency to lack discrimination in his charitable endeavors. He should also avoid trying to help those who are incorrigible. Moreover, he should not be afraid of confrontation. He is inclined to hide his thoughts and feelings, make excuses and even lie, often just to avoid a person or an issue. Mikhail Gorbachev should strive to be honest in his communications, which will also help him to be honest with himself. If he channels his energies well, Gorbachev can be a asset to others - be it on a professional level as a counselor, teacher, or consultant or on a personal day-to-day level.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Mikhail Gorbachev as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Gorbachev may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Mikhail Gorbachev usually keeps to himself.
Mikhail shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Mikhail has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Mikhail Gorbachev sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Gorbachev tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Mikhail has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Gorbachev will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Gorbachev tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Mikhail Gorbachev does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Mikhail Gorbachev has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Gorbachev more than it bothers him.
His energies are directed to either perfecting his techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Mikhail Gorbachev's, and he is quite a perfectionist!
Gorbachev can easily become overly identified or involved with the function he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
Mikhail has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. His self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit him in an almost magical way. His optimism and cheerful generosity also win Gorbachev many allies and successes in life.
