In addition to having an independent spirit, as described in the previous chapter, Omar al-Bashir 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. Omar al-Bashir 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). al-Bashir 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 al-Bashir. Omar al-Bashir 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.
Omar al-Bashir has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Omar al-Bashir 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. Omar Hasan 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. Omar al-Bashir 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, Omar al-Bashir 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 al-Bashir.
al-Bashir'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.
al-Bashir is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Omar al-Bashir is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
He is prone to fanaticism and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Omar al-Bashir does not always consciously understand why he feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as he does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in al-Bashir's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is likely to profoundly influence Omar al-Bashir and shape important life decisions and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
al-Bashir depends a great deal on other people's reactions to him and rarely acts until he sees how he affects others. Omar al-Bashir must learn to be direct and straightforward, rather than evasive or manipulative. Omar Hasan should also learn to rely heavily on his hunches.
