In addition to being a self-reliant go-getter (as described on the previous page), he is also a philosopher and entrepreneur with big ideas and grand dreams. Tom Hayden believes in absolute honesty and truthfulness, even when it hurts someone! At times Hayden can be evangelical or preachy in his enthusiasm to share his convictions with others. He is quite a fireball, and whether it is a set of beliefs or a favorite football team, Hayden tends to be downright religious about it!
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Tom Hayden, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Tom Hayden probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Hayden can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Tom Hayden has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Hayden always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Tom Hayden has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Tom has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Hayden expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Tom's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Tom Hayden enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Hayden.
Tom Hayden craves intense experiences and is attracted to aspects of life that are strange, unfathomable, or taboo. He may hide his interests or inclinations, except from those who know Tom very intimately.

At times Tom Hayden may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter his direction in life, or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly uncharacteristic of him. When his life is becoming too predictable, Tom may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how he is doing this. These impulses may seem at odds with his conscious intent and desires for himself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Tom Hayden which needs to be expressed now and then.
Tom Hayden has a harmonious balance between his body, soul and spirit. He enjoys intellectual challenges from others, but tends to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He may be interested in studying human nature and matters of health.
His vitality is not up to par and his will-power a bit weak, making Tom Hayden vulnerable to swindle or deceit. His inner discontent and casual attitude could easily lead Hayden into dubious schemes. Tom should refrain from any activity that seems to be subversive.
