Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Prince Felipe of Asturias" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Prince Felipe a little better. This page describes the disguise Felipe Borbon wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Prince Felipe of Asturias has a sensible and realistic outlook on life and his two feet are always planted firmly on the ground (though he may, on occasion, have his head in the clouds). Others often see Felipe Borbon as a rock of strength, solid, reliable, dependable, and constant. He is, in fact, amazingly consistent for he possesses great powers of endurance and does not like to make changes or adjustments to his regular routine. Prince Felipe does things deliberately and methodically and does not easily accommodate the unexpected. Though he has a gentle, even soft, appearance, Prince Felipe of Asturias is enormously strong-willed and stubborn. He follows his own pace and refuses to be rushed or pushed into anything before he feels sure about it. Felipe Borbon can be coaxed and persuaded by charm, beauty, love or affection - but never forced. He will not fight either, but simply stubbornly resist any attempt at being coerced into doing something he does not want to do.
When Felipe Borbon has a purpose, he is extremely fixed, immovable, and bullheaded about it. His obstinacy is often infuriating to others, especially since it takes much provocation to make him flare up or respond to their anger. Prince Felipe of Asturias appears calm, unruffled, and unemotional most of the time, but behind his easygoing and peaceable appearance there lies great strength. When it comes to a contest of wills, Prince Felipe often wins simply due to his relentless persistence and his ability to outlast just about anyone. Another reason for his reluctance to make changes is his very strong need for security. Prince Felipe is most comfortable in stable, relatively unchanging conditions and he also has a strong desire for tangible security - a home of his own, money in the bank, job security, etc. The flip side of Felipe Borbon's hankering for permanence is that he easily gets caught up in a rut and will stay in a familiar situation (e.g. job, marriage) long after it has lost its vitality and interest.
Prince Felipe of Asturias has a keen appreciation of the natural world and he derives great joy from the down-to-earth comforts of the physical world, with its myriad of delights. He is quite sensual in a very natural, wholesome way and he knows how to enjoy himself. Felipe Borbon is appealing to the opposite sex in an earthy way. He is also a great lover of beauty and his tastes are basically conventional or classic - not modern.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Prince Felipe of Asturias could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Felipe Borbon may wish he were not so easy to read.
There is a certain intensity, charisma or compelling attractiveness about Prince Felipe of Asturias that may have little to do with his physical features. It is energy, a subtle sexuality that he emanates. Moreover, Felipe Borbon tends to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. His instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
He is assertive and bold. Prince Felipe of Asturias is willing to be the first person to speak up and make his position known, and to strike out on his own if necessary. Prince Felipe generally gets along better with men than with women because his approach is quite direct and sometimes tactless and insensitive as well. He can be a bit too forceful. However, Prince Felipe of Asturias' boldness is his calling card, and most people feel that he can at least be trusted to be honest with them.
