Dick Haymes' practical, realistic approach to life (described in the previous chapter), combined with his perfectionism (described below), makes for a very skilled and talented person. Haymes can excel at any task that requires skill, dedication and attention to detail. Sometimes, however, he has difficulty balancing work and pleasure, and he should avoid the tendency to vacillate between extremes of austere, hard work and laziness.
At heart Dick Haymes is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Dick Haymes has a sharp analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and prefers to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, Haymes can be relied upon to be cautious, efficient, and thorough in his work and he takes pride in a job well done. What he may lack in self-confidence Dick Haymes often makes up for in skills - fostering expertise, technical knowledge and competence in a specialized area. He is adept at using his hands to create or fix things, and meticulous attention to detail and careful craftsmanship are his forte. Some would say he is a little too meticulous, for Haymes can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as he thinks it should be, and he worries about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. Dick Haymes likes to organize, categorize and arrange everything into a logical system and is often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. Disorganization vexes Haymes. He probably wishes that he were not such a perfectionist, for besides being a stickler for details, Haymes can also be mercilessly self-critical. Whether in his environment or within himself, Haymes tends to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. He is strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest in his self-assessment and often does not give himself enough praise or credit.
He is also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about his diet, hygiene, and health habits. Dick has high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and is bothered by environmental elements (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others overlook. His tastes are simple and understated, yet refined. He is truly offended by coarseness, bluntness and vulgarity. Haymes can sometimes be difficult to live with because of his fastidiousness, sensitivity and idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Though Dick Haymes seems rather cool and self-contained, he is very helpful by nature and enjoys serving others. He is content to play a supporting role rather than the lead. He is quietly devoted to the ones he cares for.
He is cautious, realistic and practical in his approach to life and disinclined to gamble. Dick Haymes analyzes before he acts. He is sometimes too serious. If Haymes allowed himself to play and make mistakes, it would be highly beneficial to his health!
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Dick Haymes prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Haymes invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and inner life.
Haymes 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, Dick Haymes enjoys fine health as well.
