While Abbie Hoffman usually comes across a tactful and diplomatic (as described on the previous page), he can also be surprisingly blunt and direct, especially when people get to know him better. Perhaps Abbie's gift is to say very honest and candid things in a way that will not alienate people. Alternatively, he may vacillate between being gracious and "telling it like it is".
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Abbie Hoffman, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Abbie Hoffman probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Hoffman can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Abbie Hoffman has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Hoffman always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Abbie Hoffman has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Abbie has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Hoffman expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Abbie's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Abbie Hoffman enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Hoffman.
The urge to learn and communicate is essential to Abbie Hoffman, and he expresses himself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. Hoffman is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, Abbie enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for himself what is going on in the world around him.
Abbie Hoffman tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Abbie Hoffman has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Hoffman can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Abbie Hoffman enjoys fine health as well.
At times Abbie Hoffman may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter his direction in life or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly atypical. When his life becomes too predictable, Abbie may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how he is doing it. These impulses may seem at odds with his conscious intent and desires for himself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Abbie Hoffman that needs to be expressed now and then.
