Although Andy Kaufman has a warm, dramatic side and he really likes to show off or stand out in some way (as described on the previous page), inside he is much too grounded, conservative and cautious to let himself get too overblown or wild. And while Kaufman may seem big-hearted and generous, he is quite unsentimental and businesslike on issues that are important to him.
Serious, disciplined, and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Kaufman. Andy Kaufman will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Andy Kaufman has a thoughtful, quiet, and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Andy Kaufman seems to be always in control, capable, efficient, and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Andy has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. Often he is authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Andy Kaufman has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or work to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Careful and conservative, Andy Kaufman plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, to play, to be spontaneous and silly, and to be weak and vulnerable sometimes, is not easy for Kaufman.
Kaufman's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity, and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
His energies are directed to either perfecting his techniques, skills, and abilities in work, or in "perfecting", refining, and improving himself as a person. Critical analysis and attention to minute detail are intrinsic in either process. The urge to bring about a state of wholeness or optimal functioning is a strong motivation of Andy Kaufman's, and he is quite a perfectionist!
Kaufman can easily become overly identified or involved with the function he performs, with his work, or with his own health and "growth process".
At times Andy Kaufman may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter his direction in life, or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly uncharacteristic of him. When his life is becoming too predictable, Andy may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how he is doing this. 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 Andy Kaufman which needs to be expressed now and then.
Andy Kaufman feels physically strong and fit and has a healthy sex-life. His actions are governed by a strong sense of honor and integrity. Kaufman is ambitious with a talent for organizing and a strong desire to succeed, insuring by that his professional success.
