Behind Cassini's rather pragmatic, hardheaded exterior (mentioned in the previous chapter), he is an adventurer and a risk-taker at heart. His cool, conservative manner masks a much more fiery core.
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. Oleg Cassini 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 Cassini's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Oleg Cassini 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. Oleg likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Oleg Cassini 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, Oleg Cassini also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Cassini, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Oleg Cassini believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Oleg Cassini 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 Cassini's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Oleg Cassini to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Oleg Cassini would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Oleg Cassini to do so.
Ownership gives Oleg Cassini a sense of security, and he has a strong attachment to his possessions. Oleg also has a natural instinct for or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Oleg has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Oleg Cassini tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, he never gives up on his hopes for the future. Cassini tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
Oleg is extremely sensitive and imaginative, and he can get lost in his dreams, fantasies and visions. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, as well as to the world of color, beauty, and emotion. Oleg Cassini is also drawn to mysticism and he has deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace loving, Cassini may lack the will and competitive spirit needed to make his way in the world. He is often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the harsh realities of life.
Cassini always seems to find the right words to verbalize his feelings, especially in regard to love and friendship. Oleg Cassini also has a keen sense of beauty and he probably appreciates art, music or poetry.
Cassini alternates between aggression and apathy and sometimes feels that he is unable to meet all the demands made on him. Once Oleg Cassini becomes aware of what he needs to do, however, he is capable of working long and hard, not giving up until his work is done.
He is creative and talented, but must develop self-discipline to channel his energies productively. Oleg Cassini may feel that everything is going to be all right, that he cannot lose and may take risks by gambling or speculating, which could result in disappointments.
