Although Peter Bogdanovich appears to be unselfish, gentle and somewhat passive (as described on the previous page), Bogdanovich really has a strong sense of himself and is a much more dominant individual than he seems to be initially. Peter Bogdanovich also craves personal glory and acclaim much more than he first lets on. He may feel torn, at times, between taking care of himself and giving to others.
Proud and intensely individual, Peter Bogdanovich really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to him, and he cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Peter Bogdanovich must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Peter Bogdanovich needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Peter has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Peter Bogdanovich also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Peter Bogdanovich, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Peter wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams. Though Bogdanovich appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Peter Bogdanovich also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Peter Bogdanovich loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. He is also immensely loyal and will defend his loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend his pride or betray his trust. However, Peter Bogdanovich likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Peter needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Bogdanovich's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
Peter Bogdanovich has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Peter enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. He is very involved in his own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using his special talents, whether these are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. Peter Bogdanovich has a strong sense of pride.
His conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by his unconscious beliefs and desires. If Peter Bogdanovich 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 Peter Bogdanovich 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.
Peter has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. His self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit him in an almost magical way. His optimism and cheerful generosity also win Bogdanovich many allies and successes in life.
Inwardly he is zealous and fanatical, though he may hide his personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of his feelings. He is driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. Peter is infatuated with power, incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. Peter Bogdanovich tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and he often seeks to emulate them. Peter has potential for tremendous good or tremendous evil.
