And there is usually no telling where he’ll drive to or end up.
He’s popular, the center of attention, the leader who comes up with crazy ideas. He’ll be voted class president or Prom King, and is likely an aggressive player on the football team, but don’t expect him to be all that serious or serious minded. He’s at an age where he wants to have fun and party.
On the negative side, this teen can be headstrong, bossy or a bully-and a risk-taker, meaning he could do dangerous things and convince others to do dangerous things. A little narcissistic, he’s not always sensitive to others feelings.
Don’t expect him to be reliable or on time, but he can be fiercely loyal to his friends, and his religion whether that is sports, a philosophy or church.” 3
