Víctor Valdés meets life head on and throws himself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. He is direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all his dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, Víctor projects a confident and sometimes arrogant façade to others. He often lacks tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. Valdés is self-reliant and does not depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. He likes to be original and does not mind doing it alone. Víctor Valdés may feel that he does not fit into groups very well and that he does not naturally blend in and cooperate with others. He likes to be either a leader or a loner.

He tends to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in his outlook, which enables Víctor to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired by an idea, Víctor Valdés feels such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that he will often forge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not Valdés' forte. However, he never accepts defeat and will experience brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To Víctor Valdés it is far better to make mistakes than to play it safe and never try.
He is scornful of what he sees as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. Víctor Valdés is not a follower. Others see Víctor as a strong individual and perhaps brash and brazen as well. Valdés presents a strong front to the world and generally does not allow others to see his vulnerable or insecure side.
Víctor Valdés seems like a loner or isolationist at times, and it may be difficult to get to know him or form close friendships with him. To others, Víctor may appear standoffish, as if he were judging them from afar.
Daring and a bit reckless, Víctor Valdés is not afraid to face danger. Víctor wants to be the biggest, the best, the strongest and the most powerful! Víctor Valdés has a need to have his influence noted in many directions and a desire to rule over those in his environment.
