Zalmay Khalilzad is a meticulous and dogged worker, gifted for tasks which require great precision and discipline. He might struggle with pessimism about his own self-worth and try to compensate for this feeling by constantly keeping busy and devoting himself almost entirely to those close to him.
You have a paternal complex and, as a result, some trouble finding your identity. Perhaps your father or a father figure was absent physically or emotionally during your childhood, which deprived you of the patterns or models which are usually helpful in structuring a personality. Because you might have lacked a particular sense of security which could be provided by a paternal presence, as well as the examples of behavior to follow in confronting the difficulties inherent in every life, you were forced to protect yourself against negative influences and find your own system in order to grow and feel secure. Although this system was quite useful to you as a child, it has now settled in to such a degree that it interferes with your evolution. Psychological defense mechanisms and crutches which were once useful now encumber your mind or inhibit your developmental efforts. As a result, in certain situations, it is difficult for you to assert yourself, and you tend to remain an awkward or passive observer. Because your authoritarian urges are mainly directed at yourself rather than others, you sometimes feel guilty about your behavior. You judge yourself severely, and sometimes punishes yourself by setting difficult tasks for yourself. Gradually, you should build up a strong inner discipline and acquire the strength to face the problems of existence in a detached and mature way.
You are sober and rather reserved and may even strike people as harsh and austere at times. Perhaps you were raised in an atmosphere of rigor and sobriety, and, as a result, grew up very fast. You have acquired a spirit of self-sufficiency and are usually quite uncompromising. You have a touchy sense of your personal dignity and worth. It is almost as though you were fighting an inner battle with your father or a father figure. The psychological models you received from your father or a father figure as a result of your interaction and your own interaction with authority may not have played a major role in shaping your relationships with the outer world and society. You may thus have been forced to compensate for this with individual determination. As a result, although you are skillful, meticulous, conscientious, and efficient, a lack of self-confidence and personal assurance sometimes makes you timid and hesitant. You sometimes feel as though you are only masquerading as a respectable, sober adult. You tend to be far too critical of yourself and rarely feel satisfied that you are living up to your ideal. These unnecessary guilt feelings may lead you to turn down the prominent career positions for which you are fully qualified. You are aware that early success is often short-lived and fragile and that time rewards those who know how to be patient and persistent, like you.
Zalmay Khalilzad is an ardent free thinker and individualist who is convinced that his most precious basic values are freedom and independence. He has thrown off what he perceives as the burden of the convention and customs of his social class and adopted an innovative lifestyle. His passionate convictions, bordering on proselytism, sometimes trouble his relationships, as he may be an uncompromising partner. He would do well to learn to recognize his own limitations and accept the responsibilities he has to other people, or he is liable to find himself continually embroiled in conflicting relationships. The roots of his somewhat extreme behavior probably lie in his relationship with his father or his teachers in childhood and adolescence. For one reason or another, he may have rejected the paternal image or refused to identify with his father, in the same way as he now refuses to adopt any values related to convention, tradition, or widespread usage. In every important life decision he makes as an adult, he is forced to rely on himself to elaborate the appropriate behavior, and the limits he must impose on his desires in relation to reality and the law.
Zalmay Khalilzad prefers to adhere to a pre-established plan in order to achieve results. His behavior reflects this tendency. He typically adopts strict models that are based on logical or moral reasons. He does not readily express his personal feelings or emotions, and he may sometimes strike others as a rigid person. However, his conscientiousness and application make him thrive in a work environment, and he tends to treat social engagements and activities as a form of duty. His natural taste for clarity, detail, and technique would make him successful as a scientific researcher or high-tech designer.
Zalmay Khalilzad has a sensitive personality. He may jump to conclusions, which could disrupt relationships, as well as career plans. He is subject to cyclical energy flows and goes from periods of feverish activity to periods of withdrawal and introspection. The aggressive element in his behavior may be explained by emotional problems he may have experienced in infancy: his mother, or a mother figure, may have had an energetic and volatile personality.
Zalmay Khalilzad is an expansive, affable, and communicative associate. Indeed, some people find him generous almost to a fault! He gives of himself and his resources unstintingly. Paradoxically, there are times when he is self-focused. He reacts instinctively, without taking the trouble to analyze a given situation, and is prone to misjudge. As a result, his everyday life may be riddled with a whole variety of practical problems. Indeed, he senses a conflict between his social life and his family and will sometimes find it hard to fulfill himself in both spheres at the same time. His attitude toward his private life may inhibit his ambitions for social or career expansion; at worst, society (the law) may impinge on his private life. He should be careful not to project his personal problems onto his partner. If, instead, the two of them analyzed the problem, they might be able to find opportunities to resolve it together.
Zalmay Khalilzad has a sensual and affectionate nature which is sensitive to physical attraction. This type of sensitivity, combined with his productive urges, may be expressed in an artistic form. As for his feelings, they are usually slow to take root. But once he is conquered by love, he forms a deep and lasting bond. Although he is loyal, he may also display a tendency to be somewhat possessive.
Zalmay Khalilzad’s birth chart indicates an emotional function which is usually expressed carefully and reasonably. Distrustful of his emotional urges and somewhat wary of his feelings, he tries to rid himself of all partiality and try to get some perspective and distance before making an emotional commitment.
Zalmay Khalilzad somewhat frustrated by nature, with an innate tendency to be dissatisfied with everything (to put it mildly), determined to subject his sentimental and sexual urges to the control of his mind. If he is happy with the companion he has chosen, he will turn out to be an excellent partner, devoted to his flock.
It would be better for Zalmay Khalilzad not to marry at too early at age. As a result, he should be careful not to be forced to legitimize a youthful adventure, or allow himself to be trapped by questions of money. He will probably meet his ideal partner relatively late in life.
Zalmay Khalilzad is an intuitive thinker. He does not reason things out through a long, articulate, logical discourse; instead, he seize the visions or insights that spontaneously flash into his consciousness. He thus has a form of immediate knowledge of various phenomena which is based neither on reasoning nor on any elaborate thought process or method. As a result, if he is an extrovert, he will possess an inventive, innovative spirit gifted for improvisation. If he is an introvert, his mind will be an abundant source of personal inner truths.
Zalmay Khalilzad tries to shun subjectivity and be as objective as possible. His thoughts are usually structured, and his reasoning, based on objective facts or experience, usually relates to practical goals.
Zalmay Khalilzad has a lively and agile spirit. He is curious and open-minded, approaching various life experiences without either dogmatism or prejudice. As a result, he tends to have an opinion on every subject, but he does not always have the patience or perspective necessary to examine a subject and gain in-depth knowledge of it. He enjoys manipulating expressions and concepts and amuses himself with witty remarks, satire, and controversy. If he learned to control his flow of words better and elaborate his thoughts more, he might make a talented communicator. Because he is often too hasty to formulate and construct the arguments which would back up and inform his ideas, he is sometimes misunderstood. He is often blind to the rashness of his judgments and convinced they are well-founded and objective, which sometimes irritates the people around him. If he were to succeed in disciplining his mind somewhat, he would have innumerable opportunities to apply his communications skills to a great career. However, he would do well to be careful of his nerves.
