drive and ambition
Gordon Sumner is proud and ambitious, and he strives to excel, to stand out and be recognized for who and what he is. Sting has a very strong ego drive and likes to be Number One. Sting finds it difficult to take orders from others or to stay in the background, and he hates being wrong; Sting always insists that he is right!
He is forceful, strong, energetic, determined, and highly competitive. Sting plays hard, he plays to win, and he does not give up easily. In fact, he sees life as a competitive sport or performance. Sting loves admiration and applause, and he has a strong sense of personal honor and integrity. Sting tends to be very self-confident, even arrogant. Because of his belief in himself, Sting is able to accomplish much, but if his confidence is ever undermined, Sting becomes self-conscious, defensive, and rather belligerent.
Sting often buys things on impulse and he can be reckless with his material resources and money. Sting has certain possessions that he is extremely attached to and possessive of.
His nature tends to be very sensual and Gordon Sumner may irresistibly be attracted to someone, even if he knows that he or she is bad for him. Sting also has a tendency toward jealousy and possessiveness in his relationships, and unwillingness to grant his partners freedom to be themselves.
Maybe the most important factor in Sting's choice of career and his success or lack of it is having a strong home base. Family support is crucial to Sting, and he would not sacrifice his family for any sort of advantage or achievement in the outside world. If Sting has a solid foundation and healthy relationships with his parents, he is likely to fulfill any aspirations he has for accomplishment.
Sting needs to have a strong spiritual base to his life in order to achieve anything in concrete, external terms. That is, fulfilling any ambitions he has for himself will depend upon whether or not Gordon Sumner feels connected to a higher source. Clarifying his own role or direction in life may take Sting some time, so he is apt to be a "late bloomer" when it comes to outward expression and success in material terms.
His drives and ambitions in life may seem crazy or eccentric to the more conservative people Sting knows. There may well be no security or safety net (no retirement pension, no insurance benefits) in the work Sting does. He is suited for freelancing, or professions that involve lots of change, innovation, variety, irregular schedules, and the like. Sting should expect the unexpected and numerous ups and downs in the course of his life. He may change course often, and try many different things.
Sting 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. Sting 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 Sting's personal ambitions.
