Although Hart may seem quite poised, even-tempered, balanced and harmonious (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is actually rather moody and emotional. Inside, he is much more subjective and biased in his attitudes than his fair-minded, reasonable demeanor may imply.
Carey has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to Hart to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Hart tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Carey likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. Carey Hart has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of his life centers on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Carey Hart than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for him to judge situations fairly and objectively because his personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Carey Hart takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around himself to shield himself from pain and rejection. Carey Hart feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Carey Hart needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish himself; otherwise Carey Hart becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Carey Hart functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. Hart often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Carey Hart 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 Hart's strong points. His faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
His career, reputation, and public image are very important to Hart. Carey Hart has a strong desire to be influential or make his mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy him; his ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for his unique effort and gifts. Carey Hart may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Carey Hart feels that he has the support of his family or others in his environment for his creative efforts and personal goals, which enables him to act with confidence. He is able to satisfy both his need to be an individual and his need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. He is in harmony with himself and is therefore an effective individual.
Carey has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Carey Hart tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, he never gives up on his hopes for the future. Hart tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps Hart's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Carey Hart tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Carey Hart has a mature and often somber demeanor. He is serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. He progresses rather slowly in life, through his own efforts and persistence. He is also rather stern and judgmental, especially with himself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for him to really let go, be spontaneous and playful. Carey likes to be in control of himself.
Although he takes himself and his responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of Carey Hart that rebels against rules and restrictions and the need to contend with outside authority. Hart can feel torn between conforming to the rules or fulfilling his obligations, and breaking free of them. His wilder side will now be described.
Impulsive, restless and spontaneous, his life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. Carey Hart is extremely independent and craves excitement, adventure, freedom and discovery. Hart has a rebellious streak and he often feels he is unusual and different from society's mainstream. The unorthodox and the novel appeal to him.
His vitality is very strong and he is likely to be a workaholic. If Carey Hart is not careful, he may work so hard that he becomes exhausted, leaving himself open to physical breakdown. Carey Hart also has a strong drive to win and to dominate others.
His comprehension is exceptional and Carey Hart reacts to everything very quickly. Hart shows deep respect for knowledge and feels that he must learn everything there is to know. Studying probably was encouraged early on and Carey Hart was raised to be successful.
