drive and ambition
T.D. Jakes avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. His ego drive is not very dominant and Jakes 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 T.D. Jakes 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. T.D. Jakes has a very strong protective side. He acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone he perceives as threatening to Thomas Dexter's home or family. However, T.D. Jakes 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. T.D. Jakes 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 Jakes to achieve his goals and desires.
He is a team player and collaborates well with others who share his goals, ideals and intentions. T.D. Jakes can coordinate group efforts and inspire people to work toward a common goal.
Team sports are also a lot of fun for Thomas Dexter, and he could be a leader, coach or director of any group endeavor.
T.D. Jakes has a rather cocky, confident, we-can-do-it attitude that people in his environment pick up on quite readily. Inspiring, motivating, and encouraging others to go out and do their very best is one of Thomas Dexter's innate gifts. T.D. Jakes has faith in the power of action and boldness, and enjoys initiating new programs and projects.
His personal ambition is very high and T.D. Jakes has the desire to perform record achievements. Although his recuperative abilities are strong, Jakes should be careful not to over-exert himself. Thomas Dexter can also be somewhat ruthless in his pursuit of success.
Language, words, communication, networking, clarity of speech or writing, being a messenger or go-between - these are key features in his career, as well as how T.D. Jakes goes about achieving his goals and ambitions. "Work smarter, not harder" is Jakes' motto.
In some ways T.D. Jakes may feel that he has little choice about his role in society. He is compelled either by unusual external circumstances or by an inner drive, to bring potentially dark, difficult, or taboo issues into public awareness. Thomas Dexter delves into the hidden side of life - things which may have been purposefully concealed or repressed - and sheds light on them. T.D. Jakes could come into direct conflict with the authorities or powers-that-be as a result. He is apt to have extraordinary ambitions, and could also become overly zealous and fanatical.
His professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for T.D. Jakes to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Thomas Dexter is apt to have more of a spiritual vocation or calling. Healing, counseling, the ministry, music, art - or some combination thereof - may well be part of his role in life. On the other hand, T.D. Jakes may simply be confused and lack professional ambition.
His self-control is well developed and T.D. Jakes is patient, cautious and responsible. Jakes knows that success comes with hard work and is willing to do his share. Thomas Dexter likes to be by himself and to do his own thing, but at times he may also feel lonely and deserted.
