Behind Rocher's rather secretive and guarded exterior (as described on the previous page), he is very competitive, dynamic and driven. This aspect of Rocher's character is described in more detail in this chapter.
He is a person who thrives on challenge, and he often feels that he must battle his way through life, relying on no one and nothing but his own strength, intelligence and courage. Yves Rocher believes in being totally honest, true to himself and his own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Rocher's gods, and he has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Yves Rocher craves the freedom to do things in his own way, and he works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not his style. Yves likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Yves Rocher loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then he is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for him. He is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though he may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Yves Rocher also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following his own star are the breath of life for Rocher, and he wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if he cannot do this.
He is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Yves Rocher believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and he perceives himself as a strong, even invincible, person. Yves Rocher hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting his own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for him.
He is basically aggressive in his attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. He is often so fired up about his own projects or goals that he inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Rocher's relationships. His impatience to get on with things causes Yves Rocher to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. He also frequently tries to accomplish his goals through anger or temper tantrums. Yves Rocher would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however his energetic, restless nature rarely allows Yves Rocher to do so.
Yves Rocher has a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and he loves to perform. Yves enjoys being the center of attention and he seeks to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. He is very involved in his own creativity and self-expression, and takes great pleasure in developing and using his special talents be they artistic, athletic or intellectual. Yves Rocher has a strong sense of pride.
Yves Rocher 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. Yves Rocher has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Innovative, original, unorthodox and unconventional, he identifies with the role of a rebel, reformer or iconoclast. Yves Rocher insists upon a great deal of personal freedom and does not easily adapt to others' needs and wishes. Yves needs a lifestyle that allows him to be spontaneous. He often feels that he is somehow different from other people and outside of society's mainstream.
He is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Yves often hides the intensity of his feelings and his personal motives and desires. Rocher is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Yves Rocher tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Yves Rocher both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
He may be a bit high-strung and over-zealous in the pursuit of his endeavors. Rocher always seems to be in a hurry and has the ability to evaluate situations quickly. Yves Rocher has a brilliant mind and possibly could invent something.
