The way Sri Aurobindo comes across to others is very congruent with his true nature so "what he sees is what you get". The description below reinforces what you read about Sri Aurobindo in the previous chapter.
Proud and intensely individual, Sri Aurobindo 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". Sri Aurobindo must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Sri Aurobindo needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Sri Aurobindo has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Sri Aurobindo also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Sri Aurobindo, 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. Sri Aurobindo 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. Though Aurobindo Ghose appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Sri Aurobindo also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Sri Aurobindo loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. 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. However, Sri Aurobindo likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Sri Aurobindo needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Aurobindo Ghose'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.
Sri Aurobindo has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Aurobindo Ghose can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Sri Aurobindo feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
He is imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful or magical. He is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music and mysticism. His spiritual values color Sri Aurobindo's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
He is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Sri Aurobindo often hides the intensity of his feelings and his personal motives and desires. Aurobindo Ghose is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Sri Aurobindo tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Sri Aurobindo both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
Sri Aurobindo tends to think and act bravely and has a positive and firm demeanor. Sri Aurobindo has what it takes to make his own way in life. He may be a bit excitable, but never shy away from a good argument.
He is warm-hearted, kind, generous and very popular, especially with the opposite sex. Aurobindo Ghose's happy feelings rub off onto others and everyone enjoys being with him. Due to a protective and encouraging upbringing, his relationships with his parents are good.
Sri Aurobindo has a harmonious and graceful manner along with an appreciation of beautiful, perhaps even artistically furnished surroundings. Sri Aurobindo may be quite attractive and he is likely to make a favorable impression on everyone.
