Although Trent Reznor often appears self-controlled, disciplined, and even somewhat of an ascetic (as described on the previous page), there is also a pleasure-loving sensualist in him that thoroughly enjoys "the good life". He may sometimes feel torn between saving his hard-earned money and conserving his resources versus indulging himself and appeasing his appetite for pleasure and beauty.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Reznor's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Trent Reznor has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Trent Reznor will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Reznor can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Trent Reznor also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Trent Reznor has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Reznor for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Trent Reznor usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Trent Reznor also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Trent has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Reznor's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Trent Reznor lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Trent Reznor prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Reznor invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and his inner life.
There is an ongoing, subtle conflict within Trent Reznor, between his conscious attitudes and aspirations, and his deeper emotional and subconscious beliefs, needs, and feelings. This creates considerable inner stress and sometimes paralyzing indecision, mostly due to the fact that Trent may be trying to follow a path that is at odds with his subconscious desires. Chronic tightness or tension in his body may well be a signal that Trent Reznor is denying or suppressing the messages from his subconscious or emotional self.
Ideally, Trent Reznor will learn to accept the two quite different aspects of his and to express both of them. If he cannot do this, Reznor is apt to attract many relationships into his life with people who reflect his denied or repressed qualities, and who seem to make his life difficult.
