Behind Henry's rather serious, conservative demeanor (described in the previous chapter), he is quite a showman at heart. There is a much more flamboyant or outrageous side to Henry that may surface only rarely. Nevertheless, though Thierry Henry seems quiet and modest, he harbors dreams that are larger than life. Thierry is an ambitious person and he will not let others prevent him from reaching his goals.
Proud and intensely individual, Thierry Henry really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to him, and he cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Thierry Henry must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Thierry Henry needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Thierry has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Thierry Henry also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Thierry Henry, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Thierry wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams. Though Henry appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Thierry Henry also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Thierry Henry loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. He is also immensely loyal and will defend his loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend his pride or betray his trust. However, Thierry Henry likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Thierry needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Henry's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
Thierry Henry invests a tremendous amount of his creative energy into his relationships with others, particularly his marriage or other close partnerships. Thierry feels that he needs others in order to be all that he can be, and he is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.

Henry can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Thierry Henry enjoys fine health as well.
While Thierry Henry does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
Thierry Henry has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He progresses rather slowly in life, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself.
