Although Russell Crowe is a team player and he puts the good of the group ahead of his, he is also very competitive and aggressive. When his colleagues do not put forth as much energy as he, Russell Crowe quickly becomes discouraged, frustrated, and alienated from the group. Crowe can also make an excellent leader, manager, or coach, spurring the team, group, or company to excel.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle your way through life, depending upon no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence, and courage. Russell Crowe believes in being totally honest, true to oneself and one's own vision and convictions, even if that means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor, and authenticity are Crowe's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Russell Crowe 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. Russell likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Russell Crowe 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 bring in some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are like death to him. He is not afraid of trying something that's never been done before, and even though he may be seen as a fool sometimes, Russell Crowe also discovers, invents, and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Crowe, and he wilts (or get very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.

He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and has less facility in the receptive arts of relating to others, picking up subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing, and harmonizing. Often he is 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 go a long way in improving Crowe's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Russell Crowe to be rather insensitive, and to therefore alienate others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his ends by using anger or some version of a temper tantrum.
