His optimism and enthusiasm (mentioned in the previous chapter), is balanced by an innate objectivity, detachment, and pragmatic realism that usually keeps his idealistic ventures on a sound course. Though he appears confident and positive, Conrad Hilton is often quite skeptical and much more cautious than he lets on. And while it is true that Hilton likes to play, he is also serious about his work and commitments.
Serious, disciplined and quietly ambitious, he is driven to prove himself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. His work, his position in the world, and his contributions to society are very important to Hilton. Conrad Hilton will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal he has set for himself, and he often sacrifices much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
Conrad Hilton has a thoughtful, quiet and self-contained disposition and does not readily show his inner feelings and needs. Conrad Hilton seems to always be in control, capable, efficient and strong. He is often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. He is highly conscientious and even as a child he possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
He is basically a pragmatic realist, and though he may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, he feels that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. Conrad has an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in him as well.
He is clear-headed, detached and objective, and is not swayed by emotional dramatics. He is often authoritarian - strictly fair, but without mercy. Conrad Hilton has a great respect for tradition and even if he does not agree with certain laws, he will abide by them or strive to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Cautious and conservative, Conrad Hilton plays by the rules.
He is subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to get to know intimately, and never superficial. He is a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving himself (and others) permission to feel, play, be spontaneous and silly, and sometimes weak and vulnerable is not easy for Hilton.
Hilton's strong points are his depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity and faithfulness. His faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
Conrad Hilton has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, Hilton can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clashes with other strong individuals. Conrad Hilton feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
Conrad has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill his personal destiny. However, he has 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 Conrad 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. Conrad Hilton needs to learn to follow his own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what his critics or the authorities may say.
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, Conrad Hilton 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 Hilton's life. A significant death or loss in his close relationships is likely to profoundly influence Conrad Hilton and shape important life decisions and he may consciously seek out intense, life-or-death experiences as well.
Hilton has a strong will and great determination and is willing to work hard to reach his goals. Conrad Hilton often takes on more than his share and labors untiringly, sparing himself no pain in his work. Conrad should guard against over-exerting himself physically.
He may find it hard to establish relationships with other people and he tends to look for more timid partners. Conrad Hilton could also have difficulty expressing his ideas to others as well as coming to an understanding with them.
