drive and ambition
Vernon Jordan is extremely strong-willed and he pursues his goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. He is capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and he is very difficult to influence or sway once his mind is made up. When Vernon Jordan wants something, Jordan can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. He is very instinctive and does not always consciously know why he feels as strongly and deeply as he does.
He also tends to be secretive and unwilling to reveal his aims and intentions, and the intensity of his will and desire may not initially be apparent to others. However, Jordan is very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. Vernon Jordan often manipulates or forces his will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. He is not interested in confrontation but he is a formidable foe if he encounters opposition or aggression. Vernon is courageous and has a rather primitive, raw side as well.
Vernon Jordan expects to work hard for anything he accomplishes and he has no patience for people who do not pull their own weight. Work is a passion for Vernon at times, and he pushes himself too hard. Jordan can also be too demanding of the people he works with.
If his energy is not invested in a job or career, Vernon Jordan can become fanatic about his health, and may exercise or "work out" vigorously and perhaps excessively.
Vernon Jordan has a positive, "can-do" attitude and he tackles life's challenges with relish. He is self-confident and has a strong will to succeed, to see how much he can do and how far he can go. No matter what Jordan accomplishes, he does not rest on his laurels. Vernon wants to keep on going, to do even bigger things. He is proactive, enterprising and enthusiastic about new projects. He is not happy in situations that do not offer him challenges and the potential for future growth - no matter how secure or satisfactory they may seem in other respects. He enjoys competition, but Vernon Jordan competes mostly with himself, to see how much of his vision and potential he can really achieve. He makes a good leader, inspiring courage and confidence in others. Vernon Jordan usually enjoys good health and a high level of vitality.
Although enterprising and proactive, Vernon Jordan is also capable of ample much self-discipline, patience and effort. He may swing from confidence and trust in the future to pessimism and doubt, when it comes to achieving his aims in life.
Vernon Jordan has the gift of endurance and perseverance, as well as the willingness to work hard to achieve his objectives. Once he decides he wants something or makes a commitment, Vernon Jordan will do it "even if it takes forever". Self-discipline comes naturally to Vernon and he instinctively realizes that any creative achievement is "10% inspiration, 90% perspiration". Jordan chooses practical, realistic goals and pursues them step-by-step in a well-planned, orderly fashion. Vernon Jordan likes to concentrate on one thing at a time and he does a thorough job. He enjoys working in solitude, and often feels he does his best work when he is alone.
Although he is patient and steady when pursuing an objective, when Vernon Jordan finally loses patience he loses it completely! In addition to having great tenacity and perseverance, Vernon has a daring and rebellious side as well:
Vernon Jordan seeks out risky and even dangerous activities, primarily for the excitement they provide. Impulsive, daring, impatient and unconventional, Vernon Jordan cannot sit still for very long and he has no capacity for "doing things as they have always been done". He is a defiant and independent person who can go it alone if need be. Jordan can be extremely bossy and pushy and is prone to sudden, erratic outbursts, especially when he has to wait for what he wants. Courage and a taste for the unorthodox or outrageous are Jordan's strengths.
His competitive drive and lofty ambitions (commented upon earlier) feed on either intense spiritual idealism or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what Vernon Jordan can actually accomplish. His energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very high, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
While Vernon Jordan is often charged with energy and inspired about what he wants to do (as mentioned earlier), there is a dreamy, visionary, or passive side to him as well. His energy level may fluctuate from being superabundant to rather lax.
Unlike some who have hopes and fantasies, Jordan is a person who tries to live out these dreams, no matter how impractical or fantastic they seem. Vernon Jordan has a quixotic, idealistic streak. He may be more inspired to work for some higher cause than simply for his own personal achievement.
An intense team-worker, Vernon Jordan is likely to realize plans that he makes in common with others. He may prefer to work with partners rather than alone and could form relationships with others for the purpose of working together.
In meeting his challenges and difficulties in life, Vernon Jordan does have allies: his ability to tolerate tension and ambivalence, his ability to compromise, and a capacity to endure discomfort. Remaining steady in the midst of crisis or sudden change is an aspect of this, as well as knowing when to wait and when to make necessary changes. Vernon's timing is usually good.
Jordan is intensely competitive, and may engage in furious battles of will, numerous conflicts, and possible public controversy, on his way to gaining his objectives. Vernon Jordan could be drawn to activities that are dangerous, in the line of fire, so to speak. He puts himself on the line. Anger or recklessness could be his downfall.
Vernon has grand aspirations and may be inordinately ambitious at times. That is, he is apt to be discontent with small successes and to feel like a failure unless he achieves extraordinary things. Vernon Jordan should avoid get-rich-quick schemes which promise tremendous returns for little energy expenditure. Even if they do seem to succeed, Jordan's ideals and values could be compromised.
His professional goals and long-range ambitions may be vague and difficult for Vernon Jordan to define for quite a long time. This is partly due to the fact that they are not very conventional, concrete, or worldly. Vernon is apt to have more of a spiritual vocation or calling. Healing, counseling, the ministry, music, art - or some combination thereof - may well be part of his role in life. On the other hand, Vernon Jordan may simply be confused and seemingly not ambitious at all in the professional realm.
Vernon has good foresight, a great sense of purpose in his work, and the ability to cope with any situation. Having a great vocabulary enables Jordan to come up with the right words at the right time. Vernon Jordan seems to speak with wisdom and others heed what he says.
Optimistic and adaptable, Vernon Jordan knows how to take advantage of opportunities and may find and apply unconventional methods to the solution of problems. Vernon likes variety and change and has a very good understanding of things.
