People experience The Dependable as bold, nonchalant people whose personalities fill the doorway of Life. They are patient, supportive and responsible; the real ‘Rock of Gibraltars’ that can be relied upon to get things finalized and completed. This at times may make The Dependable a little obsessive as they power their way through any obstacle or challenge they are faced with, working their way methodically through until accomplishing their goal.
It is very unusual to find them doing absolutely nothing as there is always a hobby or interest that they manage to fill their time with. The Dependable has a very subtle sense of humor that will catch you off-guard if you are not paying direct attention and may find yourself the rebuttal of a joke.
The Dependable loves stability and will often prefer the structure of a career or business environment that offers them security; they know that being loyal and working steadily they will reach the top positions. Because of their worldly-wise experience and their diligent work ethic that they exude and so it will be natural for people to lean on them for a shoulder to cry on or lend some advice.
When The Dependable is in a Re-Active spiral, which takes some time as it is not easy to unsettle them, they may find themselves becoming obsessive and The Dependable may tend towards subtle manipulation especially when trying to achieve their goal or deadline.
The Dependable should guard against becoming stubborn and immovable and acknowledge that for some people you may seem a little too overbearing. If you feel overlooked and not acknowledged this may create a great deal of insecurity inside of you as your biggest fear is rejection. You may even find yourself playing the sacrificial lamb card because you’ve always been there for everybody else and when you require help or acknowledgment nobody seems to be there for you. So be aware that when you feel victimized it is often based on underlying currents of insecurity. You will make great sacrifices in the name of love and have a deep respect for nature and the outdoors.
