drive and ambition
Yasser Arafat seesaws between being too pushy, confrontational, and insistent on doing things his way, and being too eager to please, without a clear, definite goal of his own. Yasser Arafat strives for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. He may feel frustrated at times that he cannot simply do what HE wants to, that he must always accommodate the needs and desires of others. Or he may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive manner if he does not have the support and approval of other people. Either way, he is not a loner. Yasser Arafat achieves his goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player. He is very concerned with the concept of fairness and becomes quite indignant and vocal if he senses someone is being taken advantage of. Yasser Arafat avoids extremism and favors a balanced, moderate approach to living. He is unlikely to push himself too hard or to become fanatically driven to reach his goals.
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Yasser Arafat enjoys arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. He is quite forthright and sometimes tactless. Arafat can be very convincing about his point of view, but he is prone to a "hard-sell" approach which sometimes backfires. Challenging mental work is a good avenue for Yasser's aggressive intellect.
His aspirations in life are apt to be quite unusual, extraordinary, or ahead of their time. Yasser Arafat is a nonconformist, insistent on doing things his own way, and he will follow a zigzag course to the fulfillment of his ambitions.
Rebelling against authority seems to be one aspect of his life's plan. Yasser Arafat simply cannot force himself into a pre-cast mold of any kind.
Conflicts in his early childhood are apt to be played out in Yasser's later professional life. Unresolved rivalry with a parent or sibling may result in antagonism toward superiors or competitors. If Yasser Arafat can work through some of these past events, he will have even more energy and drive to achieve positive goals.
Arafat knows how to discipline himself and faces difficulties with great courage. It may take time, energy and dedication for Yasser Arafat to achieve his goals; and when he meets defeat, Yasser rises above it and continues on his way.
Yasser Arafat tends to be somewhat pessimistic and may frequently feel frustrated and depressed. Others may try to hold Yasser back in the attainment of his objectives, and success may come to him slowly but steady.
