There are some significant differences between the way Cosby expresses himself, as described in the previous chapter and many of the traits discussed below. Though Bill Cosby values self-reliance and independence, he is also very attached to family and close friends. He needs the emotional support and nurturing or his family circle, but because Cosby likes to appear strong and fearless, he often hides his need for emotional support from others. It is possible that there will be conflict between Bill's independent streak and his need for relationships of warmth, closeness, and emotional support, but there need not be: Bill Cosby can accept and express both sides of his.
Bill has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings.

Bill Cosby has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and he centers much of his life on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration, and tenderness impress Bill Cosby more than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and by his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic, or abstract principles.

He also tends to be moody, experiencing frequent emotional ups and downs. Bill Cosby needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream, and replenish himself; otherwise Bill Cosby becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Bill Cosby functions in an instinctive, non-rational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination, and instincts. Cosby often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Bill Cosby also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Cosby's strong points. His faults include an inability to release the past and go forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency to be self-pitying when he meets hardships in life.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Bill Cosby prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.

He is positive, vital, energetic, active, a go-getter. He enjoys competition, and his initiative and self-confidence make Bill Cosby a winner.
Bill Cosby aims high, dreams big dreams, and has a tremendous sense of what is possible for him to achieve. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility, and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be his faults. Generally, however, Cosby's great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation, suits Bill Cosby well.
Along with his energy and drive Bill Cosby has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Cosby, as well as a doer and a fighter. Bill wants to win but not at others' expense, and this maybe something of a dilemma for him.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. Bill Cosby takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Bill, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Bill Cosby may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
