Although Brad Whitford strives for honesty and candor, as described in the previous chapter, he is truly non-aggressive and kind, as discussed below. Brad Whitford often feels a great chasm between his idealism and the harsh realities that often require confrontation and sometimes conflict. However, he has a gift for being able to stand up for himself with integrity, but without malice or vindictiveness. His strength, combined with his compassion, can make Brad Whitford a leader who is deeply sensitive to the needs of others. Moreover, his pioneering spirit may spur Brad to introduce new styles or concepts to the arts, music or other imaginative area.
At heart he is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Brad Whitford as anything in the outer world, though he may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, he has a rich inner life, though Whitford may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Brad Whitford usually keeps to himself.
Brad shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. He is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Brad has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and he often feels the pain of others as if it were his own. Brad Whitford sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. He is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Whitford tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. Brad has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not his strong points.
He is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tries to avoid open conflict. Whitford will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Whitford tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Brad Whitford does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
His gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Brad Whitford has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
His faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tends to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Whitford more than it bothers him.
Brad Whitford tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where his efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged or unknown to the public. Whitford may find it exceedingly uncomfortable to assert himself or get up in front of an audience.
Brad Whitford tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Brad Whitford has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Brad Whitford has a strong need for intellectual relationships and associations and he likes to share his intellectual interests with others. This could be in meetings or by joining various clubs and organizations.
