As described in the previous chapter, Peter Jennings instinctively protects, nurtures, and supports others, and as discussed below, he loves to be a leader. The combination of these two sides of Jennings results in his being a good leader of his family, or any club or group to which he belongs. Peter Jennings treats people with a lot of personal attention and care, and others appreciate this.
He also often takes things too personally, and many times Peter Jennings thinks that things are directed at him personally when they are not.
Behind Jennings' rather gentle, soft appearance he is very willful and stubborn, a surprise to people as they get to know him better.
Proud and intensely individual, Peter Jennings 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 in the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Peter Jennings must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Peter Jennings 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 bring them into being. Peter Jennings also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Peter Jennings 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 in 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 Jennings appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very much dependent on the affirmation, love, and recognition of others. He cannot bear being unnoticed or unappreciated.
Peter Jennings also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Peter Jennings 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 Jennings 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.
His strengths are Jennings' zest and love for life, his creative power, and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forget there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
Peter Jennings 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, Jennings can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Peter Jennings 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.
He is assertive, energetic, active, courageous, and vital. Peter Jennings has a very strong physical drive which expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Peter Jennings has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
Inwardly he is zealous and fanatical, though he may hide his personal desires and intentions, and 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 has an infatuation with power and is incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. Peter Jennings 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.
He is inclined to feel uncomfortable or restrained in some way in the presence of others and prefer to be alone. Peter Jennings is modest and shy in his approach to others and tends to accept more responsibility than he really needs to.
