Even though he has a tactful and generally pleasing way of expressing himself (as described on the previous page), Al Jardine actually maintains high standards and can be quite a perfectionist (as discussed below). Inside he is more skeptical and judgmental than he appears.
At heart Al Jardine is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Al Jardine has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Jardine can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in a job well done. What he may lack in self-confidence Al Jardine often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Jardine can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Al Jardine likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Jardine. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Jardine can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Jardine tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-assessment and often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Al has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. He is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Jardine can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Al Jardine seems rather cool and self-contained, he is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. He is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. He is quietly devoted to the ones he cares for.
He is cautious, realistic and practical in his approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Al Jardine analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Jardine allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
Leading groups and classes, and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Al Jardine really shines and expresses his creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions is natural to him.
He is often plagued by feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions and self-doubt. Al Jardine has a cautious, realistic attitude toward life and is highly responsible and disciplined with regard to his obligations and duties. Al Jardine tends to work and struggle more than necessary and to take himself too seriously.
Al Jardine has a pleasant and dreamy disposition with considerable romantic imagination. Al has a strong longing for love, but he does not see others very clearly and may experience many disappointments in his emotional relationships.
Al Jardine has a powerful personality and a tendency to run roughshod over others. Al tends to inflict his will on them whether or not they are receptive. He is likely to gain respect from others through the demonstration of physical strength and bravery.
