Who is he?
Physically strong and masculine, Erdem is rather magnetic and emanates self-confidence. But one should never judge a book by its cover, and while it is true that Erdem is dynamic, resourceful, resolute and can even appear gruff or abrupt; he is a big softie, first and foremost. The powerful vibrations of the 1 and the 8 are expressed through his tendency to be authoritarian and bossy, and a little vain. However, Erdem also cares deeply about others. His sensitivity can be overwhelming and his emotions intense, making him just as capable of great generosity as fierce rage or even violence. He wants to be liked and admired, but never really forgets the ascendancy that he has over others. Difficulty stimulates him and he willingly fights, objects and seeks confrontation. He is extremely argumentative, and although he is essentially individualistic, he often needs other people's help to succeed. If he participates in group or associative activities (political, sport-related or other), he will want to be the leader! He has an innovative mind and thinks that he can change the world. But if Erdem is an active, pragmatic man who is made for concrete achievement, then he is also a day-dreamer and an idealist who can be naïve and a little disorganized. He appreciates material wealth and the finer things in life, so he is far from indifferent to the financial sphere. As a child, he is lively, bright and inventive. Proud and touchy, he has trouble accepting a subordinate role, and if he gets stuck with the part he could become rebellious, difficult and argumentative. He could just as easily be fascinated by poetry and art, which nourish his great sensitivity; as by sport or mechanics.
