Behind Cunningham's upbeat, friendly, open manner (described in the previous chapter), there is a very competitive, me-first, play-to-win sort of person.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, relying on no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence and courage. Randall Cunningham believes in being totally honest, true to himself and his own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Cunningham's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Randall Cunningham craves the freedom to do things in his own way, and he works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not his style. Randall likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Randall Cunningham loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for him. He is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though he may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Randall Cunningham also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Cunningham, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Randall Cunningham believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Randall Cunningham hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting his own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for him.
He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. He is often so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Cunningham's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Randall Cunningham to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Randall Cunningham would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Randall Cunningham to do so.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Randall Cunningham prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Cunningham invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and inner life.
Randall Cunningham 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. Randall Cunningham has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
He is a positive, vital, energetic and active go-getter. He enjoys competition, and his initiative and self-confidence make Randall Cunningham a winner.
Randall has artistic talents and interests and appreciates art in many forms. Randall Cunningham could become an actor and he has good judgment of the real value of things. Cunningham has an affectionate nature with a cheerful disposition and strong feelings of love.
