Behind Formigoni'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. Roberto Formigoni 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 Formigoni's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Roberto Formigoni 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. Roberto likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Roberto Formigoni 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, Roberto Formigoni also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Formigoni, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Roberto Formigoni believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Roberto Formigoni 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 Formigoni's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Roberto Formigoni to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Roberto Formigoni would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Roberto Formigoni to do so.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Roberto Formigoni prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Formigoni invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and inner life.
Roberto Formigoni often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Roberto has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Roberto sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Roberto really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Roberto Formigoni is extremely sensitive, compassionate and giving, often to his own detriment. His ideals and spiritual values motivate Roberto Formigoni, and he cannot live for personal gain or materialistic concerns alone. There must be an element of beauty, magic, imagination, inspiration or creativity in what he does. Otherwise Roberto Formigoni becomes listless and aimless. The arts, theater, music and/or charitable work are ideally suited to Roberto.
Roberto Formigoni deeply believes in his own power and his ability to survive any change and emerge victorious from any difficulty. Roberto has tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, he pursues his desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and he may be somewhat compulsive and even fanatical at times. Roberto likes to live intensely and has no respect for people who are weak or avoid confronting life and their own destiny.
Roberto Formigoni has a powerful personality and a tendency to run roughshod over others. Roberto tends to inflict his will on them whether or not they are receptive. He is likely to gain respect from others through the demonstration of physical strength and bravery.
