Behind Daly's strong, proud appearance (described in the previous chapter), there is a very tender, sensitive, sentimental, feeling person. He is probably much shyer and more private than initially presumed.
Carson 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 Daly to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Daly 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. Carson likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. Carson Daly 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 Carson Daly 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. Carson Daly takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around himself to shield himself from pain and rejection. Carson Daly feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Carson Daly needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish himself; otherwise Carson Daly becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Carson Daly functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. Daly often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Carson Daly 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 Daly'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.
Leading groups and classes, and being involved in community efforts, social activities, events or movements are areas where Carson Daly really shines and expresses his creativity. An awareness of politics or the larger social impact of individual actions is natural to him.
He is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Carson Daly 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 Carson Daly 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!).
Carson Daly 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. Carson likes to be in control of himself.
He is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Carson often hides the intensity of his feelings and his personal motives and desires. Daly is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Carson Daly tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Carson Daly both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
His vitality is very strong and he is likely to be a workaholic. If Carson Daly is not careful, he may work so hard that he becomes exhausted, leaving himself open to physical breakdown. Carson Daly also has a strong drive to win and to dominate others.
