Although he has lofty ideals and are high-minded in many ways (as mentioned in the previous chapter), there is a side of Bill Moyers that is sly, funny, and really cannot take anything too seriously. His sense of humor saves Moyers from becoming overly earnest about himself or the things he believes in.
Bill Moyers is, in many ways, an eternal child. His mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful, and always eager for new experiences - and his attention span is often quite brief. Moyers grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he wants to go on to something else. Bill Moyers craves frequent change, variety, meeting new situations and people.
It may be hard for Bill Moyers to decide just where his talents and true vocation lie, for he has a multitude of interests and is loathe to limiting himself by concentrating on just one. He is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. His curiosity and restlessness propel Bill into many different experiences in life, and he is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even it is something he does well, is real drudgery for Moyers.
Bill Moyers lives in his head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and he needs mental stimulation every bit as much as he needs food and drink. In fact, if Bill had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. Bill Moyers has a creative mind and he often lives by his wits.
He is also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and to interact with people. He enjoys using and playing with words and has a real flair for getting his ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing and/or speaking are areas he has talent for.
Bill Moyers also has a rather light and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though he craves emotional involvement, it is hard for Bill Moyers to achieve it, for he is frequently unwilling to commit himself to anything, to take responsibility, or to limit his personal freedom and mobility.
His happiness lies in using his creativity and his language skills to communicate something meaningful, to teach, inspire, or bring people together. Bill has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. His faults are his lack of constancy and persistence, and his tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Bill Moyers prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Moyers invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and his inner life.
Bill has big aspirations but he does not struggle or labor to achieve them. His self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefits to him in an almost magical way. His optimism and cheerful generosity also win Moyers many allies and successes in life.
Moyers has an intrinsic creative and artistic ability and an unusual sense of form. Bill Moyers also has a deep need for relationships that offer affection and can be quite intense when by inner compulsion he feels drawn to someone. His relationships tend to be peculiar in some way.
