Many of the positives and negatives involved with his decision-making are paradoxical. The positives include taking risks to find himself as well as a sense of adventure that keeps his soul burning with the desire to know his truth. The negatives might include not appreciating what he has and as well as being a little self-absorbed. Santiago often does not adequately consider the dangers or consequence of his journey.
