Although Omar Sharif initially appears to be the essence of tact and diplomacy (as described on the previous page), he is not as gentle and peace loving as he may seem. Although Omar Sharif prefers harmony, he is willing to fight or aggressively pursue his own interest if need be. People who get to know Omar more than just superficially realize there is much more to him than his exterior coat of charm.
He may be at odds with himself at times because he has both a strong urge for togetherness and a powerful yearning for independence.
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. Omar Sharif 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 Sharif's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Omar Sharif 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. Omar likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Omar Sharif 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, Omar Sharif also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Sharif, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Omar Sharif believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Omar Sharif 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 Sharif's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Omar Sharif to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Omar Sharif would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Omar Sharif to do so.
Omar Sharif invests a tremendous amount of his creative energy into his relationships with others, particularly his marriage or other close partnerships. Omar feels that he needs others in order to be all that he can be, and he is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to promote mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Omar Sharif can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of his.
Omar Sharif tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Omar Sharif has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, he identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Omar Sharif insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Omar needs a lifestyle that allows him to be spontaneous. He often feels that he is somehow different from other people and outside of society's mainstream.
He is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Omar often hides the intensity of his feelings and his personal motives and desires. Sharif is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Omar Sharif tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Omar Sharif both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
He may be a bit high-strung and over-zealous in the pursuit of his endeavors. Sharif always seems to be in a hurry and has the ability to evaluate situations quickly. Omar Sharif has a brilliant mind and possibly could invent something.
His courage to face life seems to be a bit on the low side and Omar Sharif is prone to worry a lot. Fear of his own inadequacies could distort his perspective and deplete his strength to go on in the direction he has chosen.
