Although David Charvet approaches life with curiosity and a willingness to learn and try new things (as stated in the previous chapter), at heart he is much more stable and reliable than he appears. Charvet is, in fact, quite solid though he can leave the impression of being rather changeable. He is also not quite as flexible and adaptable as one might assume initially. Charvet can act silly or experiment with a lot of different things, but does not lose perspective or balance.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Charvet's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
David Charvet has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though David Charvet will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Charvet can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. David Charvet also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. David Charvet has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Charvet for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, David Charvet usually maintains his poise and equanimity. David Charvet also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
David has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Charvet's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, David Charvet lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
David Charvet tends to get involved in the helping professions or in activities where his efforts are hidden, behind the scenes, unacknowledged or unknown to the public. Charvet may find it exceedingly uncomfortable to assert himself or get up in front of an audience.
He prefers more serious kinds of conversation with his friends and neighbors rather than small talk. Because his communication is clear and concise, David Charvet can impress others by taking control of negotiations or business dealings.
