Robert Downey Jr. 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.

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 Downey's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Robert Downey Jr. to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily.
