Although Woody Harrelson appears quite pleasant, agreeable and prepared to compromise for the sake of harmony (as described on the previous page), he also has a strong need to shine and express his own opinions. Woody has the potential to be a great leader, manager, coach or teacher.
Proud and intensely individual, Woody Harrelson 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". Woody Harrelson must put his personal stamp on whatever he does, and direct his own course in life. Woody Harrelson needs to have a place where he can shine, express himself creatively, and be the one in charge.
Woody has big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality and enthusiasm to realize them. Woody Harrelson also has a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, and extravagant.
For Woody Harrelson, 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. Woody 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 Harrelson 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.
Woody Harrelson also loves wholeheartedly and generously and really knows how to make the person he loves feel special. Woody Harrelson 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, Woody Harrelson likes to be the strong one in his relationships and he really does not share the leading role very easily. Ideally, Woody needs to find a person who is as strong-willed as he is, but who will not try to dominate or compete with him.
Harrelson'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.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Harrelson. Woody Harrelson has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Woody Harrelson may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Woody Harrelson feels that he has the support of his family or others in his environment for his creative efforts and personal goals, which enables him to act with confidence. He is able to satisfy both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. He is in harmony with himself and is therefore an effective individual.
Woody Harrelson aims high, dreams big, and has a tremendous sense of what he is capable of achieving. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be his faults. Generally, however, Harrelson's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation involved, is ideally suited to Woody.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Harrelson's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Woody Harrelson tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
He may have had a demanding and perfectionist or absent father. In any case, a lack of support and approval, a great deal of responsibility at an early age and an underlying feeling that he can never quite measure up may hold Harrelson back. While he may encounter a great deal of adversity and struggle alone through many of life's trials, this makes Woody Harrelson tough and determined. However, Harrelson should beware of becoming cynical, too hard on himself, and too demanding and critical of others.
Both sensitive and sensuous, Woody blends charm and energy. Woody Harrelson has a healthy sexuality and a good balance between activity and passivity. He may be fond of singing, dancing, music and drama. Romance comes easily to Woody, and his romantic relationships are passionate.
He may lack direction and drive and tends to compare himself unfavorably to others. Harrelson alternates between caution and unrealistic expectations and lets others expect too much of him. But Woody Harrelson plods forward steadily, reaching success later in life.
