The way Rajiv Gandhi comes across to others is very congruent with his true nature so "what he sees is what you get". The description below reinforces what you read about Rajiv in the previous chapter.
Proud and intensely individual, Rajiv Gandhi 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". Rajiv Gandhi must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Rajiv Gandhi needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Rajiv has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Rajiv Gandhi also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Rajiv Gandhi, 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. Rajiv 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 Gandhi 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.
Rajiv Gandhi also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Rajiv Gandhi 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, Rajiv Gandhi likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Rajiv needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Gandhi'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.
Rajiv Gandhi 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, Gandhi can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clashes with other strong individuals. Rajiv Gandhi 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.
Rajiv Gandhi has a strong need to be with people whom he is emotionally close to. He is very sensitive to others emotional needs, lending a sympathetic ear to their problems. Peace and harmony in his personal surrounding and relationships are very important to Gandhi.
Rajiv Gandhi has a basic need to fit in with others and is always willing to cooperate. He enjoys working with others as a team and is a well liked comrade.
