Behind Marconnet's upbeat, friendly, open manner (described in the previous chapter), there is a very competitive, me-first, play-to-win sort of person.
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. Sylvain Marconnet 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 Marconnet's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Sylvain Marconnet 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. Sylvain likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Sylvain Marconnet 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, Sylvain Marconnet also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Marconnet, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Sylvain Marconnet believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Sylvain Marconnet 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 Marconnet's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Sylvain Marconnet to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Sylvain Marconnet would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Sylvain Marconnet to do so.
The urge to learn and communicate is essential to Sylvain Marconnet, and he expresses himself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. Marconnet is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, Sylvain enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for himself what is going on in the world around him.
Sylvain Marconnet tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Sylvain Marconnet has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Sylvain Marconnet often feels that he is at cross purposes with himself, for his conscious intentions and desires conflict with his subconscious emotional needs and drives. He is torn in two different directions. Sylvain has difficulty satisfying both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Sylvain sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to him or what Sylvain really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
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 Sylvain's whole perspective and approach to life. He is idealistic and perhaps impractical.
