Paul de Leeuw
Behind de Leeuw's upbeat, friendly, open manner (described in the previous chapter), there is a very competitive, me-first, play-to-win sort of person.
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. Paul de Leeuw 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 de Leeuw's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Paul de Leeuw 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. Paul likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Paul de Leeuw 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, Paul de Leeuw also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for de Leeuw, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Paul de Leeuw believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Paul de Leeuw 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 de Leeuw's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Paul de Leeuw to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Paul de Leeuw would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Paul de Leeuw to do so.
The urge to learn and communicate is essential to Paul de Leeuw, and he expresses himself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. de Leeuw is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, Paul enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for himself what is going on in the world around him.
Paul de Leeuw has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. de Leeuw also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about himself which will win him the confidence of others, especially his superiors.
His physique tends to be sensitive and his vitality may be a bit low. Paul de Leeuw is very impressionable and somewhat unrealistic. Sometimes his idealism could be confused or impractical, and de Leeuw can be rebellious or else apathetic.
Paul has the ability to stand on him own feet and use the power of his own personality to attain success. Paul de Leeuw needs to be a leader and he has a strong desire to obtain power and authority. It is imperative to de Leeuw that he be out in front of the parade.
