Behind Domingo's quiet, unassuming and cautious front (described in the previous chapter) lies a much more unconventional, liberal-thinking, freedom-loving soul, described below.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Plácido Domingo cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Domingo can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Plácido has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Plácido Domingo probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Plácido Domingo seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Plácido makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Plácido Domingo thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Plácido Domingo stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Plácido Domingo was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Plácido has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Plácido Domingo has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Plácido 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. Plácido Domingo has a strong sense of pride.
Plácido Domingo 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. Plácido Domingo has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
He is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. His spiritual values color Plácido's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
He is infused with a sense of personal destiny or mission and can be extremely driven, obsessed and fanatical. Learning about power and how to use it effectively is definitely on his agenda. Plácido Domingo confronts abusive power, tyranny and dominating people who will teach him about power and eventually force Domingo to claim his own.
