Behind Jordan's sensible, solid, practical exterior (as described on the previous page) lies a much more flamboyant character, described below.
Proud and intensely individual, Vernon Jordan really wants to stand out, to be the very best he can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for his unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to him, and he cannot tolerate being relegated to the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". Vernon Jordan must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Vernon Jordan needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Vernon has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Vernon Jordan also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Vernon Jordan, it is true that "the entire world's a stage" and he secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desires to be the star or hero of the play. Vernon wants to be great and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. He needs someone to believe in him and his dreams. Though Jordan appears radiantly self-confident and independent, he is actually very dependent on the affirmation, love and recognition of others. He cannot bear going unnoticed or unappreciated.
Vernon Jordan also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Vernon Jordan loves the magic of "being in love" and knows how to keep the romance alive in his relationships. He is also immensely loyal and will defend his loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend his pride or betray his trust. However, Vernon Jordan likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Vernon needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Jordan's strengths are his zest and love for life, his creative power and his warm and generous heart. His primary fault is his tendency to be very egocentric, and so concerned with the impression he is making and with his own creative self-expression that he forgets there is another, larger world that does not revolve around him.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Vernon Jordan prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Jordan invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and his inner life.
Vernon Jordan 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. Vernon Jordan has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
With his charm and outgoing personality Vernon Jordan has no trouble attracting people and he enjoys pleasant and congenial relationships with them. He may choose social contact with generous or wealthy people and would prefer to live in a beautiful home.
