Though Balthazar Getty seems steady and down-to-earth (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is also quite idealistic, as described below. He may sometimes feel torn between maintaining stability and the status quo versus experimenting with the unconventional and stirring up change. Balthazar Getty has a keen business sense and is very effective in any organization or large business.
He is a freedom-loving, strong-willed and independent-minded individual, and he insists upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if it means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships, Balthazar Getty cannot be owned or possessed, and while he is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of close relationships. Though intellectually open, Getty can be enormously stubborn, opinionated and inflexible on a one-to-one level. Balthazar has strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and he tries to abide by them; however, his ideals about how people "should" treat one another do not always take into account human weaknesses, differences and needs. Balthazar Getty probably dislikes sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational and he often let his head rule rather than his heart. Balthazar Getty seems rather self-sufficient and emotionally detached because he is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once Balthazar makes up his mind on an issue, it is difficult to dissuade him, and he can be rather dogmatic.
Balthazar Getty thinks in broad terms and is concerned with the world beyond his own personal sphere - his town, nation, or even planet. He is likely to become involved in, or show a keen interest in, community endeavors, social organizations and groups of all kinds. He enjoys being part of a group endeavor, and he often assumes the role of organizing, managing or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, he harbors great hopes for the future. Balthazar Getty stays current and up to date, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and ideas. When young, Balthazar Getty was very influenced by peer pressure and by all the "latest crazes". Balthazar has an experimental mind and is attracted to novelty.
His strong points include his concern for human welfare and social betterment, his sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and his vision. His faults are his stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
His career, reputation and public image are very important to Getty. Balthazar Getty has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. He is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Balthazar Getty may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
Balthazar Getty feels that he has the support of his family or others in his environment for his creative efforts and personal goals, which enables him to act with confidence. He is able to satisfy both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. He is in harmony with himself and is therefore an effective individual.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, his life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Balthazar Getty is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Getty has a rebellious streak and he often feels he is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to him.
His emotions are very intense and Balthazar Getty is excited quite easily. Love is very important to him and he is constantly seeking emotional fulfillment, but he will not waste time with casual relationships.
