Rose will notice that his description below highlights many of the same points raised in Chapter 2. Because he is so self-reliant, independent and unwilling to compromise or even cooperate with others, Pete Rose is likely to be self-employed or at least have a job that allows him to work at his own pace with minimal supervision.
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. Pete Rose 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 Rose's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Pete Rose 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. Pete likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Pete Rose 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, Pete Rose also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Rose, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Pete Rose believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Pete Rose 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 Rose's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Pete Rose to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Pete Rose would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Pete Rose to do so.
Pete Rose has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Rose can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Pete Rose feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Pete Rose is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Pete does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Rose, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
Pete Rose tends to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, he could have been dominated in his relationships with more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, Rose may have become passive, identified himself as a helpless victim, or tried to gain his desires in underhanded ways.
Pete's hypersensitivity to his environment is apt to be a challenge for him in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness, or dissonance in any form is apt to affect Pete Rose more than most people.
Rose is very thorough and takes his time thinking things through. He enjoys games that require a lot of concentration and thought, like chess for example. Pete Rose also could find traveling very rewarding.
