In addition to having an independent spirit, as described in the previous chapter, Olivier Martinez is also objective, pragmatic and quite ambitious. He is likely to work his way to the top of the ladder in some corporation, academic community or the like through his astute strategies combined with his willingness to take risks. Olivier Martinez aims to be the authority, the one in charge. At times his impulsiveness may be at odds with his conservative, responsible side (which is discussed below). Martinez could experience ongoing internal tension between pleasing himself and acting spontaneously versus doing what he needs to do to get ahead and realize his long-range ambitions.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Martinez. Olivier Martinez will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Olivier Martinez has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Olivier Martinez seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Olivier has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Olivier Martinez has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Olivier Martinez plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Martinez.
Martinez's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Martinez. Olivier Martinez 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. Olivier Martinez may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Martinez occasionally gambles, splurges or overextends himself in ways that may be at odds with his usual way of doing things. Exaggerating his accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up his own self-esteem can be a problem. However, Olivier Martinez also has faith and an optimistic side, which enable him to recover from the negative consequences of his excesses, and to learn from them.
The unusual and unorthodox appeal to Martinez, and he does not allow tradition, convention or other people's expectations to dictate how he is going to live his life. Olivier Martinez craves freedom, adventure, excitement and discovery, and is not afraid of change. Olivier Martinez possesses inventive and creative genius.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. Olivier Martinez takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Olivier, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Olivier Martinez may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
Olivier Martinez deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Olivier has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, he pursues his desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and he may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Olivier likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
