Although Bobby Short often seems light, flippant, and careless or carefree (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he also has a more conscientious, cautious and responsible side, as described below. Short is perceptive and clever and needs to guard against being sharp-tongued at times.
At heart Bobby Short is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Bobby Short has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Short 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 Bobby Short 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 Short 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. Bobby Short 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 Short. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Short can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Short 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. Bobby 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. Short can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Bobby Short 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. Bobby Short analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Short allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Bobby Short prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Short invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and his inner life.
Bobby Short tends to struggle with how to assert his will and he gets what he wants in life in a way that he can feel good about. Short may be unsure about when to use force and take decisive action, and he may occasionally become inappropriately aggressive or pushy. Bobby Short may also disapprove of his own anger, competitiveness, or aggressive impulses - and thus have difficulty accessing his personal power. Learning to accept and express his "masculine" or "yang" qualities in a positive manner is a challenge for Short.
If he follows his true nature, his life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Bobby Short cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Bobby finds it difficult to conform. His offbeat interests and tastes lead Short to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Bobby Short has a very creative, inventive streak.
