Behind Rossi's proud and rather self-centered demeanor (described in the previous chapter), he is a thoughtful person concerned with social issues. He is very sensitive to the ways in which economic, social and cultural issues affect individuals. In his own life, Valentino Rossi struggles to find ways to advance himself while also contributing something valuable to his community. Rossi must not be content with simply blaming society for his own problems or those of others, but rather become active in finding creative ways to solve these problems.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Valentino Rossi cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Rossi can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Valentino has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Valentino Rossi probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Valentino Rossi seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Valentino makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Valentino Rossi thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Valentino Rossi stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Valentino Rossi was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Valentino has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
His energies are directed toward either honing his professional techniques, skills and abilities or "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. Valentino Rossi is highly motivated to strive for a state of wholeness or optimal functioning and he is quite a perfectionist!
Rossi can easily become overly identified or involved with the task he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
Valentino Rossi tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Valentino Rossi has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Rossi's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with his conscious intentions and desires, therefore Valentino Rossi is able to proceed with his life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Valentino's male-female relationships will also reflect this state of internal harmony.
He is assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital. Valentino Rossi has a very strong physical drive that expresses itself as sexuality and passion, a desire to compete with others, and a tendency to fight. Valentino Rossi has a victorious spirit and the will to win.
While Valentino Rossi 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!).
Valentino has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he has the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from his father or other significant men in his life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Valentino and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of his greatest handicaps, and at times he may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of his own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in his life. Valentino Rossi needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities may say.
