In spite of his rather meek comportment (as described on the previous page), he is very stubborn and tenacious, and there is a great deal of quiet willfulness and strength behind his modest demeanor.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Rossellini's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Roberto Rossellini has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Roberto Rossellini will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Rossellini can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Roberto Rossellini also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Roberto Rossellini has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Rossellini for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Roberto Rossellini usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Roberto Rossellini also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Roberto has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Rossellini's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Roberto Rossellini lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Rossellini.
Roberto Rossellini has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
His conscious intentions and goals are frequently opposed by his unconscious beliefs and desires. If Roberto Rossellini overrides his instincts and emotions because they seem to lead him in a direction diametrically opposed to the one he consciously desires, his emotions can become unruly. Poor relationships with women and/or difficulties in close one-on-one relationships are also a reflection of this tendency. However, if Roberto Rossellini attends to his emotional urges and feelings and listens to the voice of his intuition, dreams and gut feelings, he will derive greater satisfaction from a more balanced life.
Roberto Rossellini has a healthy amount of self-control and self-discipline. Rossellini also radiates a rather responsible, trustworthy, solid feeling about himself which will win him the confidence of others, especially his superiors.
Roberto Rossellini probably has great intellectual ability and curiosity. Roberto never seem to run out of ideas and always welcomes the study of new subjects, the more abstract the better. But he also has the basic sense to translate abstract ideas into practical reality.
