Although Steve Bing appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), he is also a "warrior". Bing sometimes feels torn between these two facets of his character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Steve Bing often think that he is a "softy", but later find out that he is strong willed and pursues his goals aggressively.
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. Steve Bing 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 Bing's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Steve Bing 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. Steve likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Steve Bing 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, Steve Bing also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Bing, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Steve Bing believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Steve Bing 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 Bing's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Steve Bing to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Steve Bing would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Steve Bing to do so.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Bing. Steve Bing has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Steve Bing may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Steve Bing is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Steve does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to Bing, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.
Although Steve Bing prefers harmony and accord, he also has a confrontational side.
Steve Bing tends to struggle with how to assert his will and he gets what he wants in life in a way that he can feel good about. Bing may be unsure about when to use force and take decisive action, and he may occasionally become inappropriately aggressive or pushy. Steve Bing may also disapprove of his own anger, competitiveness, or aggressive impulses - and thus have difficulty accessing his personal power. Learning to accept and express his "masculine" or "yang" qualities in a positive manner is a challenge for Bing.
At times Steve Bing may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter his direction in life, or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly uncharacteristic of him. When his life is becoming too predictable, Steve may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how he is doing this. These impulses may seem at odds with his conscious intent and desires for himself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Steve Bing which needs to be expressed now and then.
Appearing successful and attractive to the public is important to him. Steve Bing probably enjoys wearing stylish clothes and modern jewelry. He tends to seek admiration from others and social acceptance is necessary to Steve's well-being.
