Although he can appear freewheeling, independent, and, at times, inconsistent (as mentioned in the previous chapter), at heart he is very loyal and constant. Robert Plant possesses a certain steadiness and firmness of will that may not be obvious to others until they get to know Robert well.
Proud and intensely individual, Robert Plant 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". Robert Plant must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Robert Plant needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.

For Robert Plant, 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. Robert 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.

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.

Ideally, Robert needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Plant'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.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Plant.
