While Burgess Meredith appears pleasant, even and harmonious (as described on the previous page), inside he is deeply emotional and quite passionate. Despite appearances, he is intense and sometimes one-sided and extreme. His smooth, agreeable manner masks a much more strong-willed character.
Quiet, deep, emotionally complex and intensely private, he is not a person who is easy to get to know and understand. Burgess Meredith is extremely sensitive but disinclined to show it, and he only allows a special few into his inner world. Like a wary animal, he is cautious and mistrustful of those he does not know until "he sniffs them out". He is highly instinctive and intuitive. Burgess Meredith usually has a strong, immediate gut reaction to people, even though he may be unable to clearly articulate why he feels the way he does. His feelings and perceptions go deeper than words.
Burgess Meredith also has a powerful need for deep emotional relationships and he forms very intense love bonds and attachments. He is possessive and often jealous of anyone or anything that he perceives as a threat to his relationship with someone he loves. When Burgess Meredith commits himself to someone or something, he is wholeheartedly devoted and expects complete loyalty in return. Burgess merges with or "marries" the person he loves at a very deep level and therefore separations are extremely painful for him, and often stormy and nasty. When Meredith has been wounded, he is not inclined to turn the other cheek and will retaliate if at all possible. Burgess will most certainly never forget the hurt and he often harbors grievances and resentment for a very long time. Forgiveness does not come easily to him.
Whatever he does, Burgess does with passion and fervor, and he often goes to extremes. Meredith can be hot or cold, but never lukewarm about anything. Meredith can also be very narrow-minded: either he is 100% involved in something or it does not exist for him at all. Rarely is Burgess Meredith emotionally detached and objective. He definitely has a fanatical streak. He is also immensely strong-willed and his tenacity in pursuing his objectives often borders on obsession. He is filled with fierce pride, courage and emotional strength.
Burgess Meredith loves mysteries and is deeply attracted to the hidden, dark, secret side of life. Burgess never takes things at face value and is always probing beneath the surface of people and situations to discover what is really going on. Burgess Meredith tends to be more of a cynic than an idealist.
Ownership gives Burgess Meredith a sense of security, and he has a strong attachment to his possessions. Burgess also has a natural instinct for or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
Burgess Meredith 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. Burgess Meredith has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
He is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Burgess Meredith often feels that he needs to fight to get what he wants, and he tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. He is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
While Burgess Meredith does have a strong drive, he frequently holds himself back. One of his challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in his life (or his own internal caution and resistance!).
Realistic and practical, Burgess Meredith sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for Meredith possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Burgess Meredith also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. Meredith often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
He is prone to fanaticism and cannot go halfway in anything he does. His extremism may seem (and actually be) obsessive and somewhat blind. That is, Burgess Meredith does not always consciously understand why he feels as driven or intense about a given course of action as he does. There is a strong element of fate or inevitability in Meredith's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is likely to profoundly influence Burgess Meredith and shape important life decisions and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
