drive and ambition
Stephen King avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. His ego drive is not very dominant and King is not especially ambitious or eager to push his way to the top. He may feel inadequate in situations that call for strong, forceful action. The only instance in which Stephen King will really fight is when he senses that his loved ones - or something dear to him- are being jeopardized, in which case he is a fierce defender. Stephen King has a very strong protective side. He acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone he perceives as threatening to Stephen's home or family. However, Stephen King will rarely initiate a confrontation. His goals also tend to be very personal and centered on family closeness and inner satisfaction rather than worldly achievement.
He is sensitive to stress and does not handle a high-pressured, competitive atmosphere very well. Stephen King is very touchy, irritable and difficult to live with when there are many demands or stressful situations at work. His energy level varies and is very dependent on the emotional harmony (or lack thereof) in his home. A supportive partner is very instrumental in helping King to achieve his goals and desires.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is often very difficult for Stephen. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Stephen King lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. On the positive side, King can be very unselfish, working more for the benefit of others than for himself.
However, Stephen King denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
He abounds with self-confidence and vitality and Stephen King believes he can do just about anything he wants to. Stephen has an enterprising spirit, a good sense of timing and the ability to sense what will succeed and what will not. King usually makes fortunate work or business decisions. He enjoys healthy competition and has a rather playful, good-humored attitude toward it. Stephen King mostly competes with himself to see how far he can go or how much he can accomplish. Stephen likes to keep stretching his limits.
His ambition and/or role in life involve communication, conveying messages, writing or speaking, languages, or being an intermediary. Sometimes Stephen King may feel that he has to work harder than others to get the word out or receive public recognition. "Work smarter, not harder" should be his motto.
Stephen King needs to have a strong spiritual base to his life in order to achieve anything in concrete, objective terms. In other words, fulfilling any ambitions he has for himself will depend upon whether or not King feels connected to a higher source. Clarifying his own role or direction in life may take Stephen King some time, so he is likely to be a "late bloomer" when it comes to external manifestations and success in material terms.
His career is likely to involve some aspect of protecting, caring for and nurturing others. Equally important to him are home, family relationships, cherishing the past and carrying on tradition. Stephen King is likely to be quite popular through his profession or business.
Stephen King possesses great zeal and passion for achieving his aspirations in life, and can be something of a fanatic when he sets his sights on a goal. Stephen could do research work, psychological investigation, even detective work - anything that involves delving beneath the surface for hidden elements. A great love of mystery and exploring the unknown fuels many of Stephen's personal ambitions.
His inner life tends to be full of imagination and Stephen King is likely to have far-reaching ideas and plans. Peace-loving and generous, he has a very sharing disposition. But Stephen King could become the victim of unintentional slights.
