drive and ambition
Todd Haynes avoids direct confrontation as much as possible and is uncomfortable with aggressiveness, competition and personal power. His ego drive is not very dominant and Haynes 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 Todd Haynes 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. Todd Haynes has a very strong protective side. He acts on impulse and instinct and may lash out at anyone he perceives as threatening to Todd's home or family. However, Todd Haynes 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. Todd Haynes 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 Haynes to achieve his goals and desires.
Haynes plays vigorously and enjoys competitive games and physical rough-and-tumble activities. Athletics and/or physical activities have great appeal for him. Todd Haynes takes the initiative in sports and also in romantic relationships: he is ardent in pursuing anything he desires.
Haynes dreams up creative solutions to problems and takes an imaginative, unusual approach to getting a job done. When difficulties arise, Todd Haynes prefers to avoid conflict and confrontation in favor of more peaceful or subtle methods of resolving problems. Haynes finds it satisfying to work in order to help others or for a cause that transcends his own narrow, personal interests. Todd Haynes has an artistic flair and appreciates the colorful, unique or strange.
When Todd Haynes wants something, he can be amazingly persistent and unrelenting, even a bit obsessed, although quiet about it. In fact Todd may hide his deep purposes and intentions even from friends. Whenever he does a thing, it is done wholeheartedly and thoroughly - and if Todd Haynes does not want to do something that others wish him to do, somehow he will find a way out of it. Haynes is strong, though subtle.
In some ways Todd Haynes may feels that he has little choice about his role in society. He is compelled either by unusual outer circumstances or by an inner drive, to bring things which may be dark, difficult, or taboo, into public awareness. Todd delves into the hidden side of life, things which may have been purposefully concealed or repressed, and brings these things to light. Todd Haynes 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.
Haynes can be rather antagonistic toward those in authority. Even without realizing it, he may convey this attitude and he may well be threatening to those in power. Thus, however well-meaning Todd Haynes is, he may find his initiatives or projects meet with little favor. Working independently might be Todd's best option.
His inner life tends to be full of imagination and Todd Haynes is likely to have far-reaching ideas and plans. Peace-loving and generous, he is very sharing in his relationships. But Todd Haynes could become the victim of unintentional slights.
