Though Eastwood appears rather intense, quiet, and enigmatic at first (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is really quite friendly, sociable, and interested in people. He may feel torn at times between getting deeply involved emotionally, or staying light, free, and unencumbered.
Clint Eastwood is, in many ways, an eternal child. His mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful, and always eager for new experiences - and his attention span is often quite brief. Eastwood grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he wants to go on to something else. Clint Eastwood craves frequent change, variety, meeting new situations and people.
It may be hard for Clint Eastwood to decide just where his talents and true vocation lie, for he has a multitude of interests and is loathe to limiting himself by concentrating on just one. He is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. His curiosity and restlessness propel Clint into many different experiences in life, and he is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even it is something he does well, is real drudgery for Eastwood.
Clint Eastwood lives in his head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and he needs mental stimulation every bit as much as he needs food and drink. In fact, if Clint had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. Clint Eastwood has a creative mind and he often lives by his wits.
He is also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and to interact with people. He enjoys using and playing with words and has a real flair for getting his ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing and/or speaking are areas he has talent for.
Clint Eastwood also has a rather light and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though he craves emotional involvement, it is hard for Clint Eastwood to achieve it, for he is frequently unwilling to commit himself to anything, to take responsibility, or to limit his personal freedom and mobility.
His happiness lies in using his creativity and his language skills to communicate something meaningful, to teach, inspire, or bring people together. Clint has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. His faults are his lack of constancy and persistence, and his tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
Clint Eastwood invests a tremendous amount of his creative energy into his relationships with others, particularly his marriage or other close partnerships. Clint feels that he needs others in order to be all that he can be, and he is disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to bring about mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an area in which Clint Eastwood can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of his.
Clint has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he does have the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from his father or other significant men in his life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Clint and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of his greatest handicaps, and at times he may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of his own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in his life. Clint Eastwood needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities say.
Clint Eastwood probably has great intellectual ability and curiosity. Clint never seem to run out of ideas and always welcomes the study of new subjects, the more abstract the better. But he also has the basic sense to translate abstract ideas into practical reality.
Clint Eastwood tends to impose his will upon others in a rather ruthless way, but on the other hand he may also be imposed upon by others. Clint feels a constant need to fight for leadership and has a great desire to become a public figure.
