drive and ambition
Stonewall Jackson seesaws between being too pushy, confrontational and insistent on doing things his way, and being too eager to please, without a clear, definite goal of his own. Stonewall Jackson strives for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. He may feel frustrated at times that he cannot simply do what HE wants and that he must always accommodate the needs and desires of others. Or he may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive manner if he does not have the support and approval of other people. Either way, he is not a loner. Stonewall Jackson achieves his goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player. He is very concerned with the concept of fairness and becomes quite indignant and vocal if he senses someone is being taken advantage of. Stonewall Jackson avoids extremism and favors a balanced, moderate approach to living. He is unlikely to push himself too hard or to become fanatically driven to reach his goals.
Asserting himself and being direct and forceful about what he wants is very often difficult for Stonewall. Though he may have a great deal of energy and drive, Stonewall Jackson lacks confidence or simply the desire to put himself and his interests first. Positively, Jackson can be very unselfish, working more on behalf of others rather than for himself.
However, Stonewall Jackson denies his own desires and needs too much, and he is likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage his finest efforts.
Intensely restless, dynamic and energetic, he is always on the go. When Stonewall Jackson wants something, he wants it NOW, and he acts decisively and impulsively, albeit sometimes hastily and prematurely. Impatient, high-strung, and often nervous and tense, Stonewall finds it difficult to slow down, pace himself or relax. He is fiercely individualistic and independent, self-willed and intolerant of restraints and restrictions imposed by others. Stonewall Jackson has a reckless disregard for authority and can be extremely rebellious. Cooperating with others is not Jackson's strong point! He is often brutally frank and abrupt with people, and can be quite impersonal when he is pursuing a desired goal. He may demonstrate an explosive temper when his will is blocked. Stonewall Jackson has a superabundance of energy and he needs a great deal of personal freedom to do things in his own style and at his own pace.
While Stonewall Jackson is often charged with energy and inspired about what he wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to him as well. His energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Ordinary life often seems drab and uninteresting to Stonewall and he must have something that stirs his imagination - a vision or ideal or dream to motivate him. Stonewall Jackson has a strong urge to act out his fantasies or to live his dream, and Stonewall Jackson will act where others merely talk or dream. Artistic creation, drama or other areas in which Jackson can express himself imaginatively are excellent for him.
Work that only serves his own narrow personal interests does not satisfy Stonewall Jackson. He may lack the competitive edge, the fighting spirit, the "me first" attitude that is often required for material advancement and success. He also tends to either overestimate or underestimate his own power and abilities.
Working with others seems to make Jackson happy and he is likely to be a much sought colleague or co-worker. Stonewall Jackson has a need to establish many relationships and he enjoys open communication with his contacts.
Stonewall Jackson has a talent for putting fresh ideas and inspiration into practice. He is ready and willing to apply new ideas and methods, and he has a knack for gaining acceptance for a new idea and implementing it.
His ambitions and long-range goals in life are apt to be personal, subjective, and related to inner development or inner satisfaction. Others' recognition or accomplishing something great in material or public terms is quite secondary to Stonewall.
A great deal of Jackson's energy, attention, and fulfillment may be related to home, family, or fulfilling his heritage in some manner.
Stonewall Jackson 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. Stonewall 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 Stonewall's personal ambitions.
His self-control is well developed and Stonewall Jackson is patient, cautious and responsible. Jackson knows that success comes with hard work and is willing to do his share. Stonewall likes to be by himself and to do his own thing, but at times he may also feel lonely and deserted.
His inner life tends to be full of imagination and Stonewall Jackson is likely to have far-reaching ideas and plans. Peace-loving and generous, he is very sharing in his relationships. But Stonewall Jackson could become the victim of unintentional slights.
His persevering and enduring nature gives Stonewall Jackson the power to overcome a lot of difficulties in life. He is able to carry his lot with dignity and without complaint, but may literally work himself to death; Stonewall wants to work until he takes his last breath!
