Casper Van Dien
Because Casper Van Dien seems to be such a gentle, tolerant, accepting person (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he can startle people with some of his very pointed, bluntly honest statements. Even though he is sensitive and empathetic, he can also be quite tactless at times. His good will and good intentions, however, usually prevail. With Van Dien's free-flowing imagination (described earlier) and his great restlessness (discussed below), he is apt to be a wanderer, and perhaps somewhat of an escapist.
He is a gambler and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to travel the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. He is independent, freedom loving, and often very restless. He needs a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine, which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom, is odious to him.
To Casper Van Dien, life is a journey and an adventure that is endlessly interesting and rich with possibilities, and it may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and efforts. Casper Van Dien probably traveled around and experimented with many different paths before he settled on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next, for once the challenge and vital interest is gone, he is very quick to move on. Commitment, discipline, focus and concentration are not his strong points. Van Dien can be irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life.
An incurable optimist, he has big dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and is usually engaged in pursuing a far-off goal. Casper Van Dien has a great deal of faith and trust in life and failures do not crush his spirit. Van Dien always bounces back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. Casper Van Dien has a sporting, playful attitude toward life and he is philosophical about his mistakes. Casper has the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture, and he likes to theorize and speculate. However, he gets annoyed with all the details and practical requirements required to implement his theories.
Van Dien expresses himself in a very open, direct and straightforward manner and is often blunt and tactless as well. Because he does not take himself too seriously, he may not realize how deeply his candid statements can wound more sensitive souls. In fact, though he may not realize it, Casper's insensitivity and lack of understanding regarding others' feelings is probably one of his worst faults.
Casper Van Dien enjoys being in close relationships but also needs freedom and he does not do well with a possessive, clinging, or emotionally demanding partner. He is quite generous, and heartily dislikes pettiness in others. Someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun and his zest for life would be the right companion for Van Dien.
Van Dien is very attracted to world travel, foreign cultures and studies that expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world.
Casper Van Dien is philosophically inclined and concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting an overall picture of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
Casper Van Dien 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. Casper Van Dien has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
Van Dien can be an inspiring leader of a team or group effort. His dynamism and energy evokes the same in others, and he sees healthy competition between people as a plus. Generally, Casper Van Dien enjoys fine health as well.
He is intensely willful, zealous, and fanatical though Casper often hides the intensity of his feelings and his personal motives and desires. Van Dien is infatuated with power and has an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition and the desire to be "somebody". Casper Van Dien tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma and often seeks to emulate them. Casper Van Dien both fears, and is intensely fascinated with, death and the hidden, secret, dark side of life.
Casper Van Dien has a powerful personality and a tendency to run roughshod over others. Casper tends to inflict his will on them whether or not they are receptive. He is likely to gain respect from others through the demonstration of physical strength and bravery.
