Behind Tillman's rather jovial, open, enthusiastic demeanor (as described on the previous page), there is a very different side to him - deeper, more serious, and more emotionally intense, as described below. His optimism and idealism are tempered and balanced by a certain skepticism and a sense of the darker side of life and of people.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Pat Tillman is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and he only allows a special few into his inner world. Like a wary animal, he is cautious and mistrustful of those he does not know until "he sniffs them out". He is highly instinctive and intuitive. Pat Tillman usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though he may be unable to clearly articulate why he feels the way he does. His feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Pat Tillman also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and he forms very intense love bonds and attachments. He is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that he perceives as a threat to his relationship with someone he loves. When Pat Tillman commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Pat merges with or "marries" the person he loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for him, and often stormy and nasty. When Tillman has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Pat will most certainly never forget the hurt and he often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to him.
Whatever he does, Pat does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Tillman can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Tillman can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Pat Tillman emotionally detached and objective. He definitely has a fanatical streak. He is also immensely strong-willed and his tenacity in pursuing his objectives often borders on obsession. He is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Pat Tillman loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Pat never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Pat Tillman tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Leading groups and classes and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Pat Tillman really shines and expresses his creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions comes naturally to him.
Pat Tillman 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. Pat Tillman has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
His conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by his unconscious beliefs and desires. If Pat Tillman overrides his instincts and emotions because they seem to lead him in a direction diametrically opposed to the one he consciously desires, his emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Pat Tillman attends to his emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of his intuition, dreams and gut feelings, he will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
He is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Pat Tillman has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Pat Tillman has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
While Pat Tillman does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Pat Tillman has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Pat Tillman tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Pat Tillman that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Tillman can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, he identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Pat Tillman insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Pat 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.
Appearing successful and attractive to the public is important to him. Pat Tillman probably enjoys wearing stylish clothes and modern jewelry. He tends to seek admiration from others and social acceptance is necessary to Pat's well-being.
His physical energy is strong and Pat Tillman is able to make an extra effort and work quite hard at any task he wants to do. Tillman can act quickly and he gets a great deal accomplished in a hurry. But Pat Tillman also has a tendency to be reckless and accident-prone.
Pat Tillman has a good relationship between his body and soul. Pat Tillman tends to seek out the public and because of his strong personality, others will follow him. Pat could do well in public relations.
